Liezel Germanotta

We are joined by fashion and beauty blogger Liezel Germanotta. Liezel helps us to hack our lives to still be able to look after skin carefully, even after the December holidays.


The young blogger and part time stylist has gained herself a following after she created her own beauty treatments out of everyday natural foods and oils found in the kitchen.


DIY Skincare Hacks
1. After Sun Avocado Body Mask
Benefits - Great for dry and sunburned skin. Because of its natural oils it absorbs deep into skin and hydrates dry or flaky skin.

Ingredients
- 1 mashed avocado
- 1/2 teaspoon of honey
- 1/4 teaspoon of lime juice

Directions
- Mix ingredients together in a bowl and apply to skin. Leave for 30 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.



2. Coffee Lip Scrub
Benefits - Great for dry chapped lips due to heat. Coffee has exfoliating and anti-inflammatory properties which will help leave lips looking smooth.

Ingredients
- 1 teaspoon ground coffee
- 1/2 teaspoon of honey
- 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil

Directions
- Mix ingredients together in a bowl and apply to lips using your index finger. Scrub lips for 2 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.



3. Tumeric Mask

Benefits - Great for glowing skin. You may want to try a turmeric face mask to help reduce acne and any resulting scars. The anti-inflammatory qualities can target your pores and calm the skin.

Ingredients
- 1/2 teaspoon of tumeric powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil.

Directions
- Mix ingredients together in a bowl and apply to face. Leave for 20 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water.


4. Avocado Hair Mask
Benefits - Great for adding shine and strengthening hair. Contains fatty acids, so using this mask will leave your hair moisturized, but oily so please wash and condition hair as usual.

Ingredients
- 1 mashed avocado
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2-3 drops lavender essential oil (optional)

Directions
- Mix ingredients in a bowl & whip on high until light in colour and smooth.
- Dampen hair with water. Spread mask onto hair, paying particular attention to the ends (feel free to rub it in a bit).
- Clip your hair onto the top of your head, cover with shower cap. Leave for 30-45 minutes.
- Remove shower cap, rinse out mask, and then wash and condition hair as usual.
