Cairo West wants you to greet 2022 with a fresh face and fresh goals! Get your skin party-ready with a natural, easy DIY facial, with ingredients taken right from your kitchen pantry. Let’s get cooking, the beauty edition!

BRIGHTENING MASK

You will need

  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons flour 
  • Medium sized bowl 
  • Yogurt 

Directions:

Turmeric contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components which adds glow and radiance to the skin. 

  1. In a bowl, combine flour and turmeric. 
  2. Add yogurt and mix. (The color of the mask should look like a mustard yellow). 
  3. Make sure your face is clean, then apply a thin layer of the mask on your face and leave on for 10 to 20 minutes.
  4. Rinse off with lukewarm water, then cold water to close your pores.
  5. Follow with your usual toning and moisturizing process. (You can use the homemade rose water as a toner, directions below!)

LIP SCRUB

You will need

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon honey (Optional)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Small glass container 

Directions

  1. In the glass container, combine honey and brown sugar.
  2. Add cinnamon to plump the lips.
  3. Mix well, and voila! Your ready-to-use lip scrub.

ROSE WATER FACIAL MIST

You will need

  • 4 to 5 rose petals
  • Filtered water
  • Strainer
  • Essential Oil of your choice like lavender (Optional)
  • Plastic spray bottle 
  • Large Pot

Directions

  1. Start by carefully tearing the petals off the roses.
  2. Place the petals into a large pot and add enough filtered water to cover the petals. 
  3. Press gently on the petals to submerge them. 
  4. Turn the stove on to medium heat and bring to a boil.
  5. Place the strainer over a large bowl and pour the rose water into the strainer.
  6. Cover the rose water and let it cool on the side.
  7. Have your spray bottle on hand and ready. 
  8. Pour the rose water gently, and add 2 to 3 drops of the essential oil of your choice; shake the bottle so the oil can mix well, and there you go, your face mist is ready!
