I have literally so many DIYs to share, they are ready to be blogged! But life has gotten so busy with my broadcasting career, I am barely getting time to share these DIYs from my online TV show at MyDubaiMyCity.com.
The latest DIY, coincidentally, is perfect for tired skin in need of hydration. So if you’re feeling the strain of the event season, get this home made mask on your face.
This mask is such a must-have for men or women who play loads of sport and get sweaty between the shoulder blades. This mask can even zap spots on the face. It’s packed full of natural antiseptic ingrediants like tumeric, tea tree oil and kaolin clay.
You will need: water, scissors, kaolin clay, tumeric, tea spoon, mixing bowl, raw sugar and tea tree oil.
Place the kaolin clay and the tumeric into the mixing bowl.
From here add the water, a couple of drops of tea tree oil and a teaspoon of raw sugar until it forms a paste:
From there you have your mask! You place it on the affected areas until it dries and then wash off:
You can also package it up as a gift, just make sure to tell the recipient that the mask will last up to 2 weeks in the fridge:
So I just came back from Switzerland and was overwhelmed by the beauty of the Summer and also the wealth of fragrant flowers available at the drogeries which dot the villages where I stayed.
Drogeries provide non-chemical and naturopathic solutions for your health and dried lavender flowers (along with other flowers) are considered “Tee Drogen” (tea drugs). They can be used to make soaps, home remedies and even to drink tea with. I managed to get a bag of lavender which is so fragrant, my entire suitcase smells amazing.
You would have seen my original DIY sugar body scrub tutorial here. It’s basically the same but with a healthy addition of lavender flowers. If your lavender has lost some of it’s smell you can add lavender essential oil to the mix.
From there just add a nice jar:
Over some days the lavender will infuse into the olive oil. If you want to see just how much fun it is to make this scrub, check out the video of my workshop at MAKE Business Hub.
For a while now I’ve been thinking about branching out into DIY events and also guestings. It’s really exciting to me to spread my love for DIY in Dubai. So you can now come and have a 3 course meal with me and also make some cool sugar body scrub to take home too. So exciting.
I’ll provide all the materials for the DIY also. It’s going to be so much fun.
If you’d like to come and join the table for May 9th, meet me, make some cool scrub and also eat great food then book your place here now.
