MONSOON PAMPER DIYs! Let's Grow some Self-love♥


Don't stop until you are proud.
Welcome to my blog! This is the second post in the season special series! I love pampering myself and I love it, even more, when I DIY stuff for myself. I am sharing my fav and absolutely lit DIYs to pamper yourself in the monsoon! And the best part? All of these are super easy and won't take much of your time, so you can definitely invest it to do some other job. Easy peasy DIYs are always so fun to do so there's no way to procrastinate it. Without making this intro further long, 
 let's get to work!

Let's talk 'bout face masks first.
01. For this one, you'll need two amazing ingredients, Aloe Vera and Honey🍯.
-Take a small piece of Aloe and wash it well 'cuz we want its goodness and not the dirt and germs over it.
- Then slice off its edges and slice it from b/w. 
- Next, scrape the gel from the two slices of the aloe leaf.
- Then add a teaspoon of honey and mix well.
Voila! Your face mask's all ready! You can also add a few drops of your fav essential oil. 
Make sure your face is washed and all clean before applying a face mask. 
- Then apply the face mask and leave it to sit. When you'll touch your face, the slimy sense will change to sticky sense, and this indicates that it's ready to wash.
- Massage your face well and then wash it off with cold water.
You can definitely use the packed aloe gel but I like to make my own.  Aloe is used in so many DIYs so if you can plant this at your place it'd be so good for you.
02. For this face mask, you'll need fuller's earth and Aloe
Fuller's earth is so easily available in the market and it's a good stuff for your skin. It is helpful in treating acne and acne scars. It also absorbs excess oil and helps in improving skin elasticity.
Due to the last two benefits, your skin may feel stretchy and dry afterwards. So to balance that out and maintain the goodness of your skin, mix it with Aloe gel and apply the paste on your face. Wash it off with cold water once it's dry.

Let's get to hair masks! 
03. The first one is hot oil treatment. This term is a real thing when you have dry scalp. It moisturizes well and makes your hair flow with the wind! All you'll need is equal parts of coconut and olive oil and half part of honey.
-Mix everything in a little bowl and perform 'double boiling process' to heat it up. You can also warm the oil in the microwave.
-Make sure it ain't too hot or else you'll burn yourself. 
-Massage your scalp well in sections and leave it for minimum 30 minutes and wash it off. Then shampoo and condition as usual.

04. The ingredients for this hair mask are well known: one part of Aloe gel, half part of honey and two parts of olive oil. 
-Scrape the aloe gel. You can grind it in an electric mixer to get rid of the chunks. Or else it'd be tough to remove those from your hair afterwards.
-Mix everything and apply on your hair. Then massage well.
-Let it sit for 45 minutes or longer, then rinse it off. Lastly, shampoo and condition as usual.
05. This last hair recipe is for flaky scalp. It's a hair rinse and all you need is 1/4th tablespoon of Apple Cider Vinegar in one cup of water.
-Rinse your hair with this and let it sit for a little while. Then shampoo and condition as usual.

Bonus DIY to cure acne!
06. This last DIY is for curing acne. My sister told me 'bout this. This ain't season specific but definitely helpful.
You'll need aspirin tablets and ACV.
-Crush an aspirin tablet and make a thick paste with apple cider vinegar.
-After cleaning your face, apply this paste on your acne and go to bed. 
-In the morning, rinse it off and proceed with your morning routine.

I'll suggest you to use the lowest power tablets and see if you're not allergic to it. The lowest power is 75mg, and I have been using 150mg. Also, be careful if you apply this near your eyes. It may irritate your eyes a little bit. In any case of allergy, wash off immediately and if redness/pain persists, see a doctor.

  1. I have natural kinky hair :-) and I can swear by hot oil treatment and the aloe gel hair mask! I didn't know about treating acne with aspirin though! I will definitely try that one! I find this post very useful. Thanks a lot.
