Nothing thrills us more than when celebrities open up about their personal beauty routines. It’s like we have our very own golden ticket to go behind the scenes of their daily rituals, and aren’t we all trying to achieve a dewy glow like Martha Hunt or Doutzen Kroes? We have had the pleasure of speaking with these influencers and others who have bestowed their DIY knowledge upon us through the years, and today you can find our favourite tricks of the trade in one place.
From yogurt masks to sugar lime lip scrub, keep clicking for the creative uses that celebs have for popular household items.
“I put coconut oil on my skin or in my hair. And once in a while I leave it in for the whole day. … I also take makeup off with coconut oil.”
“One time I was at a friend’s house and my skin felt really dry, and they had honey in their cupboard, so I took the honey and some Greek yogurt and put it on my face. And coconut oil! If you have a jar of coconut oil, you have half your beauty routine covered. You definitely need two separate jars—one for cooking and one for beauty."
“A really easy mask to create that will help brighten your skin and take away the dullness uses yogurt as the key ingredient. Just mix equal parts of yogurt and oatmeal (about 1–2 tablespoons each) with turmeric (about 1–2 teaspoons). Mix, apply, leave for half an hour and wash off with lukewarm water.”
“This [sugar lime] lip scrub will bring back your soft, supple lips and prep them for any lipstick application. The sugar and lime act as the exfoliators while the coconut oil and honey deeply hydrate and cleanse your lips. You can also keep it very simple and just mix sugar and oil.”
“I do a body scrub—I use Himalayan salt and lemongrass essential oil, and sometimes sugar. You can actually mix the two.”
“I like to make a homemade egg white and rosemary oil hair mask, because my hair gets colour-damaged and so distressed from working with heat. The protein mask helps rebuild and strengthen my hair.”
