DIY with Your Own Kitchen Beauty Ingredients!

Your kitchen is the perfect place to find ingredients to customize your next facial-at-home! Kitchen-fresh food (foods found right your refrigerator and cupboards) are a powerhouse of nutrients that when applied topically can work wonders for your skin! For example, organic raw honey contains anti-inflammatory properties that kill bacteria and fight acne; citric acid found in lemons helps rejuvenate your top layer of skin giving your skin a fresh and vibrant glow, and mashed avocado helps heal sun-damaged skin.

Nuworld Botanicals DIY Kitchen Fresh Face Mask Jars

Our new DIY Kitchen-Fresh Face Mask Jars are a fun and creative way to experiment with common kitchen ingredients and give your skin a healthy boost of fresh nutrients! Each jar contains a 5-treatment mineral clay mask blend from our Raw Skincare Bar (your base), our 100% cold-pressed organic balancing face oil (to moisturize your skin post-mask and also add to your mask mix), plus kitchen-fresh beauty recipes you can make right at home! They’re easy to make, fun to do and a great way to get kids involved in creating their own natural face masks.

Here are 10 of our favorite kitchen beauty mask ingredients:

Coconut Oil- Coconut oil has a hundred uses, from helping your thyroid work properly to healing injured skin. It’s also a great source of vitamin-rich moisturizing properties. So not only should you be eating it, we highly recommend adding it to your beauty routine.

Yogurt– Your body will love the “good” bacteria in yogurt. But it’s not just digestion and immunity that benefit. Yogurt also comes with a good dose of calcium.  But did you know that a majority of your epidermis consists of calcium? So supplementing calcium helps in healthy and effortless skin renewal and preventing the skin from getting dry and dehydrated.

Brown Sugar- There may not be much nutritional value, but you can’t beat the taste and texture of brown sugar. What would baking be without it? It also makes one of the best exfoliating masks out there!

Coffee- Coffee grounds can be mixed with brown sugar to craft an exfoliating mask and body scrub to beat cellulite!

Baking Soda: We use it for baking and cleaning, but this wonder powder can do just about anything.  It’s a great exfoliator and can make bath bombs too!

Honey: Used in healing for ages, honey contains powerful antioxidants with antiseptic and antibacterial properties.  Perfect for your next face mask! It also works wonders in lip scrubs.

Turmeric: This beautifully colored Indian spice is a powerful antioxidant and it has even been connected with blocking cancerous cells. It’s also recommended in joint pain and as an anti-inflammatory. Try it in a quick and easy face mask for glowing skin.

Chocolate: Everyone’s favorite treat contributes to a healthier heart and reduces stress. What’s even more surprising is that  chocolate can be used in a decadent face mask!  Why?  Chocolate contains flavonoids and polyphenols which are antioxidants that protect your skin and help reduce lines and wrinkles.

Pineapple: All those vitamins and minerals are doubled in benefits by low cholesterol and fat.  Not only does pineapple keeps your gums and eyes healthy, it strengthens the bones. Use the peel for body scrubs or mix it with honey for a delightful facial.

Papaya: Unripe papaya contains natural alpha-hydroxy acids and high levels of papain, an enzyme that helps dissolve dead skin cells.
