citrus-scrub 1

Pampering yourself doesn’t mean you have to spend your hard earned cash at pricey spas or on expensive products. Although I do enjoy the luxury of purchasing these things, its not quite a necessity. I must admit, I am super guilty of being a major product junkie. I’m sure some of you reading this can relate as well. There is something that seems to always bring me back to creating my personal scrubs the good ole fashion way. You can create your very own DIY beauty recipes right in he comfort of your own home with products you may probably already own in your kitchen. One recipe I personally enjoy creating, is a “Citrus Facial Scrub” (yummm). Below, I have listed a few ingredients you will need to create this natural citrus facial scrub. 

Oatmeal-and-yogurt-mask

The Benefits:

Yogurt – Soothes and can lessen the visibility of blemishes and moles, make freckles disappear, and lighten suntanned skin.

Oatmeal – Acts as a exfoliant, will lock in moisture, and acts as a natural remedy to acne.

Honey – Is great for acne treatment & prevention. Moisturizes and soothes. full of antioxidants which will slow down aging. 

Lemon or Citrus Juice – Helps brighten, soften and refresh rough or dried skin. The citrus fruits will also lighten the skin color and reduce freckles, discoloration and scars.

Citrus Scrub

  1. 1 teaspoon of lemon juice (or other citrus juice)
  2. 2 Teaspoons Honey
  3. 6 ounces plain yogurt
  4. 1/4 cup ground oatmeal

Blend all the ingredients together and apply it to clean skin in circular motions. Allow for the mixture to to dry. Leave mask on for 10-15 minutes and rinse it off with warm water. This all natural facial mask is suitable for sensitive, normal, and dry skin types. This regimen can be used once a week as needed.

PLAID & LEATHER!


Sooo sad to see summer go, it was a wonderful one nonetheless. Fall has officially made its debut. In NYC, the weather has been quite drastic, not much of a transition between the two seasons. I literally went from tanks & shorts to sweaters & leather jackets. Ughhh the struggle (sighs). On the plus side, this season is perfect for layering. One combo you can’t go wrong with for this fall season is “Plaid & Leather” paired together. I love combining these two together as the casualness of the plaid balances out the polished look of leather.
