10 Easy Beauty Recipes for Busy Moms

Beauty recipes are all the rage these days, and for good reason! Who doesn’t want to look and feel their best? Of course, most people don’t have the time or energy to follow complicated recipes that take hours to execute. With that in mind, here are 10 easy beauty recipes you can make while doing other things, such as watching TV with your kids or folding laundry.


Coconut & Honey Hair Mask

A hair mask made with coconut oil, honey, and egg yolk will leave your hair soft and shiny. Mix one egg yolk with two tablespoons of honey, one tablespoon of coconut oil, a few drops of lemon juice, and a teaspoon of olive oil. Apply on clean dry hair from mid-length to ends. Cover with a shower cap or plastic wrap and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse off with cool water and condition as usual!


Coconut Body Butter

Coconut oil is an excellent moisturizer of beauty recipes, so whipping it up into a rich body butter will make your skin look soft and well-taken care of. Take some coconut oil and whip it in a bowl using a hand mixer; once it’s smooth, add a few drops of vanilla extract and about ten drops of your favorite essential oil, like lavender or rose. If you have dry skin, you can add more oil; if you have oily skin, use less—the finished product should be smooth and creamy. Keep it in an airtight container at room temperature to keep its nutrients fresh.


 Soothing Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe vera, one of the great beauty recipes, is often used to ease sunburns and insect bites. Its moisturizing properties make it a great choice for soothing dry, chapped skin. Aloe vera gel is particularly effective at treating skin irritated by eczema, psoriasis, or rosacea. The best part? You can whip up your own aloe vera with ingredients you already have in your kitchen! Here’s how: scoops out half a cup of aloe vera gel from inside an aloe plant, juice a lemon into a small bowl, stir in one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar until combined; and mix in half of the cup honey until smooth. Apply generously as often as needed.


Sugar Scrub

A quick, easy way to exfoliate your skin and remove dead skin cells is to make a sugar scrub. A simple recipe of two parts sugar and one part olive oil will leave your skin smooth and feeling healthy. You can also add essential oils like lavender or cinnamon for a pleasant scent or an added boost of natural health benefits. For best results, follow up with moisturizer and sunscreen. Don’t forget to give yourself a facial massage while you wait for the body scrub ingredients to soak in! It might take a little extra time, but it could be very beneficial in helping you relax before bedtime. After all, as mothers we rarely have time just for ourselves, so why not enjoy these beauty recipes?


 Homemade Deodorant

Shaving cream doesn’t have to come from a bottle. Instead, you can whip up your own batch with coconut oil and shea butter. Mix 4 parts coconut oil to 1 part shea butter, then let it sit at room temperature overnight so that it becomes solid. In the morning, store it in an airtight container until you’re ready to use it. Before you shave, lather up with a quarter-sized amount of homemade shaving cream and shave as usual.


Homemade Face Washes

You don’t have to go out and buy fancy cleansers when there are so many great, inexpensive alternatives you can make at home. The best part about making your own face wash is that you can customize it to fit your skin type and current needs. There are dozens of options out there—too many to list here—but most of them involve some combination of baking soda, salt, sugar, oil, vinegar, and/or water. For example: pour equal parts water and apple cider vinegar into a spray bottle; add 1 tablespoon each of rosemary oil, peppermint oil, and witch hazel; spritz onto your face (after removing makeup). Wipe clean with a warm washcloth or towel. There are tons more recipes out there if those seem too basic for you!


Homemade Shaving Cream

Canned shaving cream can be expensive, but it’s easy to make your own at home using a few simple ingredients. Here’s how 1/2 cup canned coconut milk (not light), refrigerated overnight 4 Tbsp. shea butter 2 Tbsp. almond oil 1/4 tsp. vitamin E oil 3 drops peppermint essential oil Combine all ingredients into a bowl with a hand mixer until creamy. If the mixture is too thick, add warm water one teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is reached (the texture should be similar to that of soft butter). Store mixture in an airtight container until ready to use; place the jar on the bathroom counter within reach of the sink before each use and take out only what you need (to prevent contamination) so that your shave soap lasts longer between uses.


Homemade Eye Makeup Remover

Don’t you hate it when your expensive eye makeup remover runs out before you can afford to replace it? Or, even worse, you open a new bottle and find that it doesn’t work as well as your old one? Instead of spending money on eye makeup remover all over again, try making your own at home. All you need is some coconut oil, castor oil, and almond oil. Put about a teaspoon of each into a bottle and shake it up. You now have a lovely homemade eye makeup remover that will work just as well—if not better—than anything from Sephora or Walgreens. It’s also much cheaper!


Homemade Lip Balm

It’s not hard to make your own lip balm. You just need a few supplies (beeswax, coconut oil, and shea butter), some empty containers, and some labels. For example, you can buy a set of 20 containers for $9.50 (Prime eligible). Simply melt all three ingredients together in equal parts over low heat until they become liquid. Pour into containers, allow to cool, and enjoy your new handmade products! These lip balms will last quite a while—the beeswax helps preserve them—but feel free to add essential oils or flavorings if you want to change it up after using them for a while.


Homemade Bath Bombs

Bath bombs are some of our favorite bath products because they not only add a fun element to your routine, but they also make your tub feel like a pampering spa. To create these DIY beauties, you’ll need Baking Soda, Citric Acid (found in most grocery stores), Corn Starch, Epsom Salt and essential oils. Mix everything together in a bowl until combined. Roll into balls (1-2 inches) then place on baking sheets with parchment paper; flatten each one out with something flat like a bottle. Set aside for about 30 minutes so that it hardens. Take them out, wash off any excess powder from bottoms then store them in airtight containers. They should last 2-3 months as long as you don’t drop them or sit on them! Enjoy!
