Mask for all your Beauty Needs. :D

1. The Olive Oil Hair Treatment

Olive oil isn’t just for cooking — it’s great for your hair, too! Olive oil has been proven to give hair a healthy sheen, help to repair split ends, and reduce frizz.

To give your hair a conditioning treatment, massage about 2 tablespoons of olive oil into your hair and scalp. The amount you’ll use should vary depending on the length and thickness of your hair. And remember to massage it in well – the massaging feels really nice on your scalp, but is also important to the treatment, as massage stimulates helps promote a healthy scalp.

Next, take a warm, damp towel and wrap it around your head and treated hair (“turban” it). Leave it on for about 30-45 minutes. This allows the olive oil to work into your hair to have the full effect.

Finally, rinse out the olive oil with shampoo. This might take a few shampoo-ings (when I tried it, it took 2 rounds.) Give your hair further rest by allowing it to air dry, if you have the time. Then say hello to your luscious locks!

2. The Miracle Mask

These yummy spices not only smell amazing, but are naturally good for your skin. Nutmeg has anti-inflammatory properties and can actually help to reduce pore size and diminish acne spots and scars. Cinnamon acts natural exfoliant and antiseptic. When these spices are combined with honey, it creates a skin healing mask.

A word of caution though: Nutmeg can be harsh on skin — especially sensitive skin — so be sure to try the mask out on a small patch of skin before applying it all over.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg

Directions:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients.
  2. Apply to a clean face very gently in circular motions and be careful to avoid the eye area. Do not rub or scrub it in as it can easily cause irritation, especially if you have sensitive skin.
  3. Leave the mask on for up to 20 minutes, then rinse it off with warm water.

3. Cranberry Face Mask

Even though Thanksgiving is a little more than a month away, why not celebrate early with this lovely face mask?

Cranberries are naturally rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin K and plenty of other antioxidants, which will keep your skin looking healthy and even decrease dark circles. This power-packed berry also acts as a natural toner, and when combined with moisture-rich honey and yogurt, creates a soothing mask.

Ingredients:

  • 6-7 crushed cranberries (fresh, not canned!)
  • 1 teaspoon of honey
  • 1 teaspoon of plain yogurt

Directions:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients.
  2. Apply to a clean face in circular motions, avoiding the eye area.
  3. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes, then rinse it off gently with warm water.
