There’s nothing like the sweet aroma of cooking and baking in the kitchen. Cranberries. Cinnamon. Honey. Oh My! These may sound like the ingredients for a delicious pie, but they’re actually ingredients for our favorite beauty DIY recipes. Even if you are not cooking this year, here are two beauty hacks you can quickly whip up in the kitchen. All you need are some leftover ingredients and a blender.

10-Minute Cranberry Face Mask

  •  1/2 cup of Fresh Cranberries
  •  3 teaspoons of Honey
  •  1 tablespoon of Coconut Oil
  •  1 teaspoon Cinnamon

Cranberries, honey, coconut oil and cinnamon all have so many amazing properties. The concoction of these ingredients in this face mask will leave your skin with a nice, natural glow.

Place the cranberries in the blender and puree them. Cranberries are loaded with antioxidants which are important for protecting the skin against environmental stressors. They are also rich in Vitamin C, which helps to brighten the face.

Once you have pureed the cranberries, then add the rest of the ingredients in the blender, combining everything until they are mixed well. The honey in this mask reduces redness and softens the skin while the coconut oil keeps the skin moisturized. The touch of cinnamon will help enhance the skin complexion since cinnamon has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.

Pour the mixture into a small bowl and apply the mixture all over your face avoiding the eyes. Leave the mask on for 10 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water then gently pat dry.

Cranberry Sugar Lip Exfoliator

Cranberry Sugar Lip Exfoliator

  •  10-12 Fresh Cranberries
  •  1/3 cup of Raw Sugar
  •  1 tablespoon of Coconut Oil

Peel the fresh cranberries. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree them together. Scoop out the mixture into a bowl, then apply the mixture on your lips by rubbing into the lips using circular motions to gently exfoliate. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat your lips dry. The sugar effectively and naturally exfoliants while the coconut oil deeply hydrates the lips. The results are soft and smooth lips that allow for better penetration of your favorite lip product like the Nilotica Lip Melt.
