Last week I had the pleasure of filming a few "How to" video's for (will post the link when it's up!) The focus was on homemade beauty and masks you can create in the comfort of your own home. I had a blast researching some recipes for the shoot, and could not believe how many ones there are to try...there's an at home solution for all types of skin and issues.

Personally, I've always enjoyed doctoring up my own beauty creations in the kitchen and love to give away my concoctions as gifts to family and friends. For Christmas this year, I plan to mix up a batch of the "Homemade exfoliating scrub" to give away to all the women in my family (I just spoiled the surprise, didn't I? Mom, forget you read this)  It's a great, cost effective way to make someone smile.
