MAKEUP | OLD GOLD

Hey everyone , 

I posted a makeup tutorial on my youtube channel today. You'll notice the tutorial is not as tidy as my older videos because I'm using a new editing software called Final Cut Pro . OMG it's such a difficult software to understand compared to iMovie  . For some reason the video was 6GB ; so you can only imagine how long it took to upload . Please if  you have any tips on using Final Cut Pro , please let me know in the comment box . Thanks in advance 










Anyway I hope you have an amazing weekend ? 

Happy valentines xxx

SKINCARE | TRIPLE TRIFLE SCRUB

I’ve got my mix mojo back AKA homemade skincare obsession. I’ve been dying to make a scrub that will wake me up in the mornings especially now that its Ramadan.

I enjoy exploring with ingredients that can be sourced from the kitchen cabinets. Being in Nigeria means I don’t have easy access to alot of my favourite luxury brands/products but it has its benefits because now i’m curious to find natural/organic substitutes.

This scrub was made with ingredients I already had in the kitchen : Roast ground coffee , cocoa powder,  cinnamon powder , brown sugar and Olive oil. All these ingredients are products of Nigeria except the cocoa powder which is a product of Ghana.

* Ground Coffee is an excellent anti-inflammatory because its rich in antioxidants. The natural caffeine draws excess moisture from the skin , causing it to look , feel smoother and firm. It also helps to exfoliate dead skin cells . Oh! did I mention its excellent for reducing cellulite.

*Cocoa powder os also an antioxidant that helps repair skin cells and prevent free radicals. It helps hydrate the skin and reduce roughness.

*Cinnamon powder helps to clear any bacteria on the skin.

*Brown sugar acts as an exfoliant in this scrub.

*Olive oil is nourishing to the skin because its rich in minerals , vitamins and natural fatty acids.



1 Cup ground coffee
1/2 cup cocoa powder 
1/2 cup brown sugar 
3 tsp cinnamon powder 
3fl oz Olive oil 

I mixed all the dry ingredients together is a mason jar then stirred it till it was properly combined ; I then add the Olive oil and mixed. 

I applied the scrub on damp skin but you can use it on dry skin. I was so excited about how yummy it smelt and how smooth , moisturised and tight it felt my skin. Amazingly I did not need to apply lotion all day. 

 

*If you live in Nigeria you can get all kinds of jars from Shoprite.
