Ice Ice Facey: DIY Minty Ice Cube Facial for Summer


Need to cool down? Try the Minty Ice Cube Facial.

The ice cube delivers a cooling sensation along with peppermint oil to soothe irritated skin. Combine with mint leaves, it balances excess oiliness and shrink down your pores. Lastly, aloe vera gel helps restore hydration back to the skin. So if you suffer from oily skin, big pores, dull or irritated skin – you need this facial ASAP!

We’re going to use peppermint essential oil in this DIY recipe, but it must be diluted in another carrier oil before use. I’m using sweet almond oil for this purpose, but you can use whatever vegetable oil that is available at home.

DIY recipe:

dilution: 1 drop of peppermint essential oil, 1 tsp. sweet almond oil

  • 0,5 tsp. diluted peppermint oil
  • mint leaves
  • 3 tsp. cold water
  • 3 tsp. aloe vera gel

Remember, you want the facial mixture to be thick, not too runny.

How to:

Take the ice cubes out and leave it in the room temperature for 10-15 minutes.
Take one out for each use and put the rest back in the freezer.
Rub the Minty Ice Cube all over your face and leave on until the cooling sensation is gone.
Rinse with cool water.
You can store the Minty Ice Cubes in the freezer for a month.

Velvet Manicure Nails DIY


As much as I love getting myself pampered and dolled up, I do stress out if I had to spend too much doing in so. Looking good shouldn’t be a hassle and it should be something that allow us girls to enjoy while doing it.

I must admit I’m not so into nails, but whenever I see a cool nail design that is easy enough for me to re-create myself- I get eager to try it out right away. At the moment I am loving the look of Velvet manicures. So fluffy and fun! The best about them is, the look can be quickly achieved. In this post I will show you how ;)

For this tutorial you’ll need:

– Nail polish of your choice (any color)

– Flocking powder (must matches the nail color)

– Old makeup brush (optional)

Lets begin:

1. Paint the color of your choice, but only do one finger first. One coat is only needed, but make sure it’s thick enough to cover the entire nail. Clean the edges after this, if you have to.

2. While the nail is still wet, pour some flocking powder on to the nail. Make sure that the flocking powder is covering evenly the entire nail. Remember, rather too much of flocking powder than too little.

3. You can brush off the extra flocking powder using an old makeup brush, or do it like I do – just gently blow the powder off :D Be careful not to get flocking powder every where.

4. Now repeat the same steps to the other nails – and after that, you’re done baby!

I hope you have fun with your Velvet Manicure – don’t be shy about trying colors! I love my Velvet manicure – I think they so fuzzy and adorable. Although there is a down side to these cute nails – they are not waterproof. So be careful when dipping your nails in the water, when they aren’t fully dry yet! Some of the flocking powder may come off if you keep washing your hands or doing so aggressively. So make sure to steer away from water. Hey, at least you have a good reason not to do the dishes tonight lol! I’m sure your husband will understand, your Velvet nails are too precious for that!

Yellow Makes Me Happy: DIY Recipe for Unhappy Skin


The yellow powder that you can pick up from any supermarket with an affordable price has now become my all-time favorite skin care ingredient.

Turmeric has many skincare benefits. It’s excellent for fading scars, reducing hyperpigmentation and skin lightening. It’s antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and has powerful antioxidant properties.

Turmeric protects the skin from free radicals and can speed up the healing of the skin. Whether you are suffering from acne, scarring, uneven skin tone, wounds, burns, eczema, freckles, wrinkles or stretch marks, turmeric can heal it. It also can be used to fade out a sun tan from the skin quicker.


DIY recipe for fading blemish scars and uneven skin tone:

  • Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp. natural yogurt

Mix the ingredients together and apply evenly on the face. Avoid the eye areas and brows.
If your skin is inflamed or sensitive, it’s best not to use lemon on the skin. You can replace it with cucumber juice or just only use turmeric and yogurt.

DIY recipe for acne skin:

  • Turmeric powder
  • Sandalwood powder
  • Water

Mix them together and apply on the face/body.


DIY body scrub:

  • Turmeric
  • Gram flour
  • Water

Mix well together and scrub on the body before showering.

DIY recipe to heal wounds and burns:

  • Turmeric
  • Water or aloe vera gel

Mix together and rub on skin.

DIY recipe for stretch marks:

  • Turmeric
  • Water, natural oil or body lotion

Mix well together and apply to skin.

DIY facial wash for acne skin, scars, uneven skin tone and reducing facial hair:

  • Turmeric
  • Regular face cleanser/water

Mix well and apply on skin.


You don’t have to be specific with the amount of each ingredient. They’re all adjustable.

At nighttime, you can use turmeric powder with any cream or any natural oil (i.e., coconut oil or jojoba oil) and apply it on to the skin.

Remember that turmeric has strong staining power. You have to wash your face a few times to get the yellow stain off. Removing the residue with cleansing water seems to work best for me.

When leaving turmeric on the skin overnight, make sure that you cover your sheets with towels.
Turmeric is also known for its ability to reduce facial hair. That’s why it’s best to avoid the brows, when applying turmeric on the skin.

If you suffer from darker elbows, armpits or knees. The first turmeric mask is effective for treating those problems as well as acne scarring.

For the best result, combine these treatments with adding turmeric into your diet. The easiest way is to add a little turmeric in to your tea or milk and drink it.

When buying turmeric powder, make sure that it’s 100% turmeric. Fresh turmeric is still always the best.
