Now that masks are required in most states our brows have become a focus point for the face and are more important than ever. With many salons and spas in the area still closed your brows may have become over-grown and unwieldy. The good news is no matter if your brows are currently overgrown or have been victims of over-plucking in the past, perfectly shaped and groomed eyebrows are still possible to achieve.

While we are all spending a lot more time at home, it’s a great opportunity for you to practice self-care. This may include face masks and trying new skincare, however, there are some popular DIY skincare activities that you should not attempt at home.

Right now social media feeds are filled with do-it-yourself beauty remedies for clearer, bright skin although some advertised DIY skin recipes can actually end up doing more harm than good. Below we have outlined a few to beware of.

This is a recipe I have been making for years and the best part is you can change out the flavors to whatever you like! I personally love this combination of vanilla and cinnamon but you could also make this with chocolate protein powder and make it a choc-nut flavor instead!

Dry brushing the skin is a simple way to exfoliate, detoxify the skin and stimulate the lymphatic system. And the best part is it really is as easy as it sounds—a firm, natural bristle brush swept across the skin, from toe to head.

The method is called ‘dry’ brushing because it is performed on dry skin (although some people choose to apply a light coat of body oil before brushing). It is most effective if done each day while the skin is dry, right before hopping in the shower.
