One of my favourite things about the holiday season is the food. I don't always love cooking, but it's a special occasion when I'm able to take my time and create something really delicious.
As I work to simplify my beauty routines, I'm always looking for more DIY recipes. Inspired by the holiday season, I've selected five festive ingredients that you can incorporate into your self care routine.
While you may be eating lots of sugar this holiday season, you can also use it to exfoliate and renew your skin.
Pumpkin is a very well known DIY ingredient. It's affordable and accessible year round, and it's so good for you.
The enzymes gently exfoliate your skin while the nourishing vitamins and minerals give your skin a little brightening boost.
After you've made a cup of hot chocolate, whip up a cocoa face mask! You'll exfoliate and brighten your skin in no time.
One of my favourite holiday dishes, cranberries are actually really good for you. Full of vitamins, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory benefits, these are a great way to add some festive cheer to your self care routine.
Grind fresh berries and mix them with your favourite oil or clay for a face mask, or add the ground berries to your face steam.
Sweet potato is really high in vitamins and minerals so it's another great addition to your skincare routine.
After cooking, add a few scoops of sweet potato to some honey, clay, or your favourite facial oil for a moisturizing, nourishing mask.
What are your favourite holiday foods? Can you use them in your self care routine?
Until next time,
