List of DIY Beauty Recipes

raspberryEveryone loves to be pampered every now and then. But I get it, it’s expensive to hit the salon. So how about if you did it yourself? My friend, Erika Katz, is a beauty expert and author at BondingOverBeauty.com and she’s come up with a bunch of easy DIY beauty recipes for us to try! That’s my kind of list!

But first, have you heard about oil pulling? Oil pulling is the latest DIY health and beauty trend that everyone is talking about. Oil pulling is essentially an ancient, Indian folk remedy that can possibly whiten your teeth, freshen your breath and even improve your oral health. It involves swishing coconut oil around your mouth like a mouthwash.

Now, let us discover some exciting DIY recipes!

The Ultimate Magazine List

I love reading magazines. It’s my guilty little pleasure and has become a borderline obsession.

Eventually I give them to my mother-in-law because she also has this magazine addiction.

As a self-proclaimed magazine connoisseur – here is my list of favorites that you must try:

1. Health Magazine: It has the perfect mix of mind, body and soul – and recipes too! They have great contests and events for their readers. One of my favorite features is the “To-Don’t List,” which highlights tasks overwhelmed women don’t have the worry about. Perfect! I also like the “What the Yuck” column by Dr. Roshini Rajapaksa – I worked with her briefly when we were both at WPIX in New York City. Read more
