is it cold where you’re at? It’s cold here by golly, but luckily enough we aren’t experiencing any winter weather like ice or snow. Sorry to those who are.

My skin has taken a beating from this weather. These past few days my lips have been so chapped they begin cracking. Yuck! I remembered hearing how honey and Vaseline are good things to help moisturize so I’ve been applying those regularly. This morning there has been a major improvement. Phew!

But what’s worse is my hair. It’s feeling dry, frizzy and just looking sad. 😦 I decided to whip up a quick mask for my hair and now it looks and feels so much better!

Here’s my recipe so your hair can enjoy it too.

mayo hair mask:

1 cup mayo
2 tbsp honey
Juice from one lemon

/////////////////////////////////////////////////

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Apply to dry hair. It’s gonna be messy so I suggest doing this over a sink. It is super drippy, put a plastic grocery sack or shower cap over hair to catch any drips.

Let set for 10-20 minutes. Rinse out with lukewarm water. Shampoo and condition as normal.

Are there any winter rituals that you have to keep that super dry skin and hair at bay?

Today’s post holds a little something different. This rollercoaster weather is creating havoc of all of ours skin. Let’s blame the wind. One of my favorite moisture items that can be found in your pantry is coconut oil. Chapped lips, rough feet, diaper rash. It’s like the all cure pantry item.

All of the items in this recipe are 100% edible so if get hungry and desperate. 🙂

Coffee Sugar Scrub

1 cup refined coconut oil
2 cups white sugar
Pre-brewed coffee grounds
____________________________

In medium to large bowl whip coconut oil until fluffy.

Mix in sugar throroughly. Add in coffee grounds. I usually between 1/4 and 1/3 cups of grounds. It just how strong and dark you want your scrub.

Store in mason jar and container with a good seal. Scrub may need stirring to mix before use as oil and sugar seperates over time.

Scrub and on skin and rinse off. Enjoy smooth, moisturized skin.
