4 DIY Beauty Tips


Beauty blog Beautylish has four DIY beauty recipes that you’ll have to try at home today. First off, for the strongest protection against dry skin this winter, combine mango butter, beeswax and coconut oil. For a hair detangler you can make at home now, boil conditioner, add hot water and an essential oil, et presto, voila! If you have really knotty hair, try a recipe that combines coconut oil and honey. Last but not least, don’t forget your face; try a mixture of pumpkin, honey and milk.
