So, recently I've been reading this book that I'm kinda in love with. That book is: Babushka's Beauty Secrets: Old World Tips for a Glamorous New You.
Have you ever read it? If not, you're probably missing out, if beauty on a budget is your kinda thing. The whole idea behind it is, well... let me just insert this blurb:
"Esthetician to the stars Raisa Ruder learned her time-tested beauty techniques from her Ukrainian grandmother (or babushka, as they say in the old country). Now everyone can discover the all-natural, better-than-botox secrets the Hollywood stars use to shine on the red carpet! Ruder reveals her sought-after beauty recipes that can fight wrinkles, plump lips, and eliminate crow's feet and acne, using inexpensive, everyday grocery items like eggs, honey, vegetable oil and strawberries (and a splash of vodka for freshness!). At last, by popular demand, Raisa Ruder opens up her babushka's secret pantry and shares her most amazing and effective beauty advice."
Sounds pretty amazing, right? So, I'm sure you can all see why I'm utterly in love with it. Let me share with you three recipes that I've been dying to try out.
- 9 Strawberries
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp sea salt
Blend well before using it. I, um, don't need to tell you how to use body scrub - right?
Mix a little baking soda and lemon juice together, if you've got a bad pimple. Apply the mixture to the affected area and watch as it dries out!
Add 20 green, seedless grapes to the blender and blend until smooth. Apply to wrinkly areas (okay, I think the book actually said face) and let sit for 20 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
So, there you have it. Three super easy and super affordable DIY beauty recipes. Are you going to try one? Okay, really who isn't going to try that strawberry one? It sounds heavenly to me!
