DIY beauty treatments are extremely popular right now for obvious reasons. After a long day of working from home (or just a long day in general), treating yourself to an at-home spa day with a glass of wine or cocktail in hand, dedicating that 10-45 minutes to yourself sounds like the perfect way to end the night by treating yourself and skin with the right nutrients.

Nowadays, we’re spending a lot of time at home, and that means that we have more time than ever to slather masks on our faces and do all the treatments we generally don’t have time to. But instead of filling our (now online) baskets with expensive masks, we’re sharing DIY beauty treatments you can do at home, with ingredients that are already in your kitchen cupboards or shopping lists.
DIY Beauty Treatments You Can Do at Home
1. LIP SCRUB
DIY Ingredients: Sugar + Olive Oil
To properly rock the bold, bright lipstick of your dreams, you first have to make sure you’ve got a clean, smooth canvas. Nothing deters lipstick like dry, flaky lips. Lucky for you, there’s a nice home remedy that takes all of two minutes to mix together and contains ingredients you definitely have in your kitchen cupboard: brown sugar and olive oil.
All you need to do is combine a tablespoon of each in a small bowl and mix. Once you've created a nice granulated paste, apply it to clean lips. Gently massage the scrub into your lips for a minute or so. Don’t rub the paste too hard or too long, you don’t want to chafe the skin! Rinse the scrub off of your lips with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel. Then apply your favourite lipstick!
