DIY Beauty Courtesy of Not Just Inside

Hello, I'm Donna from and while lucky Anita is swanning off in the sun having the time of her life ill be filling in for her here in blogsville. I thought I would share some DIY beauty tips that I have come across over the years and maybe save you a few bob so you can spend your money on lipstick and the likes...
DIY Hair Mask

For Dry Hair
1/2 an Avocado
1/4 cup of Mayonnaise
1 tbl spoon of Coconut Oil
1 tbl spoon of honey
2 ounces of water

Blend the lot together and apply to damp just shampooed hair, place a plastic cap over hair and rinse out after 1 hour. Done.

DIY Face Mask

Skin Brightener
2 tbl spoons of flour
1/4 tbl sopon of Turmeric
1/4 cup of natural yoghurt
a few drops each of honey and lemon juice

Mix all ingredients together into a paste and apply to clean dry skin, leave on for
15-20 minutes, then rinse with a damp face cloth.

DIY Body Scrub

1/2 a cup of sugar
1/4 cup of olive oil
You can add an essential oil too if you like

Mix together and scrub scrub srcub away.

DIY Puffy Eye Fixers

Pour ice cold milk into a bowl, soak two cotton balls in the milk and
squeeze out the excess liquid, place over your eye (closed eye, obviously)
and leave for a few minutes.

So there you have it, I hope you have picked up some cheap tricks. I have asked Anita
to bring me back one of those pens that when you click it a picture of a man on the front loses all his clothes, you know, as payment for doing this post, Ill let you all know if she does :-D


  1. I like the idea of DIY masks but when it comes to making them...I get a bit lazy, however, I may try the DIY puffy eye fixer.
