Why Homemade Masks?
I started using natural products to make homemade face masks, scrubs and hair masks in my early 20’s after suffering from severe acne. As anyone that has suffered with severe acne knows, it can have a devastating affect on your life.
When I use the term acne I don’t mean a few spots, but the proper medical condition that scars your face for life. I tried to improve my acne using conventional medicine but this meant I couldn’t put any products on my skin for at least 6 months. No makeup, lipstick, or moisturisers of any type. For a girl in her early 20’s this was anything but fun!
As if this wasn’t hard enough I was advised to completely change my diet to try help my skin heal. This meant cutting out dairy, sugar, gluten, anything processed and all chemicals and additives, which was a pretty drastic change especially for a chocolate lover like me! I even had to stop using salt – if I hadn’t discovered lemon juice to help add flavour to food I don’t know what I would have done!
So I decide to find out if I could do anything to help my skin heal whilst making me feel that little bit more attractive and began researching natural healing. That is how I started creating these homemade scrubs, face, and hair treatments. So everything you see here is part of my learning and healing process. I am not a trained expert by any means – everything is self-taught and the result of lots of failed experiments!
After 6 long months my acne disappeared due to my diet, my medication, and my natural beauty products. I’ll never forget the reaction I got from my friends after they saw me acne free for the first time. My skin actually looked better than ever and my friends kept on asking me how I did it. After telling them about my beauty experiments they were desperate to get their hands on my recipes so I decided to publish them in this blog.

If you are looking for somewhere so begin then I suggest my series of egg white based masks. Why? Well Egg white is anti-ageing and it reduces your pore size. You simply mix it with different ingredients to tailor the mask to your skin type.

Why You Should Avoid Some Shop Bought Products
There are numerous beauty products that claim to fix almost any issue you can think of. However they are packed with all sorts of weird chemicals that are not healthy for your body. Remember that anything you apply is absorbed by your body. So these weird and wonderful chemicals that you put on the outside, end up on your inside.
