DIY : Face mist + Scrubs + cleansers 

Heyyy girls…..

It’s been such a long long time I’ve shared my DIY stuff here. And I’m a crazy DIY person.

I love experimenting so much, it will make you wanto scream, “Leandra , that’s enough, and when you see a good result you’ll be like ‘ you did it’.”

ok enough of me blabbering. Since it is the horrifying summers here. I simply cannot bear this 30°C or more temperature. It makes me so sweaty, grimy, greasy and annoyed. 

So, good news,  I kinda have a few face mists you could try and make for yourself . And I assure you , you’ll love them. All of them are very easy to make and the key ingredient will be peppermint essential oil. Why, of course, it is summer , so we need that cooling mintyness .

1. Rosey-Minty mist.

All you need is like half a cup of rose water, 5-8 drops of peppermint essential oil . Caution not more, less would be better, first try 5 drops and see if your skin can tolerate it.

It does make your skin feel all sorts of nice tingly, though if you have sensitive skin, try it on your hand first and check if you can take it .

Just two ingredients here, mix it when in a spray dispenser bottle , and you’re good to go.

It feels refreshing , trust me, this is my summer fav. 

2. Green minty tea.

 Here we need a cup of green tea cooled down , 5-8 drops of peppermint essential oil. Mix it well, shake it up, store and use in a spray dispenser bottle.

Green tea works as an amazing anti-oxidant and is proved to help acne prone skin . It helps making your skin appear brighter and glowy and  kinda acne free ( when your not hit by your period storms ).

So this will work as an acne cure as well make you feel fresh for summers.

3. Mint-aloe misty-fun

here we need , half cup water or rose water, 5-8 drops of peppermint and 2 tbsp of aloe vera gel.

Aloe vera is like the most miraculous skin healer. It can help with reducing acne, the marks, blemishes, discoloration or even hydrating and moisturizing. Hell! it even helps cure burns. It sure takes time , but does give promising results.

Okay now where were we, yaaasss, let’s make the mintaloe mix and store it well in a spray dispenser.

More tips :

Just  shake it to make it. Store in refrigerator if you want it nice and cold or room temperature would do.

Shelf life : 1-2 months. Depends and how well you store. Don’t keep it in direct sunlight, we don’t want to cook it up into something else. Make it in lil quantity and  finish it off early.

DIY face ( makeup )cleansers :

1. cotton ball dipped in milk and honey mix .

2. cotton ball soaked with the goodness of pure coconut oil/ olive oil.

3. cotton ball soaked in equal parts of Apple cider vinegar and water ( dont use it near or on your eye area, simply because its acidic, and that skin is highly sensitive.)

4. Cotton ball dipped in aloe and milk mix.
Face scrub/pack :

1. oats soaked partially in milk , enough to make a soothing scrub.

2. green tea powder after brewing the tea. You can use what you thought was waste to oxidize your skin and add a glow instantly. Either as a scrub if it’s in powder form or make a paste if its organic  meaning there are tea leaves and use it as a face pack.

Taaaddaaaaahhh dearies   and I’m done… 

Hopefully that was helpful.

Thank you. Do share your DIY face tips with me. 

Sun kissed

​And when the Sun kissed her in the shadows,

All the darkness faded into a smile,

It was like butterflies dancing in her moonlight.


And when the Sun kissed her ruffled hair, 

She seemed to not care 

of the depth she was drowning in,

because as the light hit her in her nothingness,

she felt the promise of peace and serene.

Flawed, broken and beautiful.

Something about this is beautiful and relatable.

Everyone is beautiful.

Everyone is flawed.

And Everyone is broken.

Some will never accept,

Some will.

Everyone feels the power of healing in time, 

and peace that nature offers.

Everyone matures after trials and tribulations,

and Everyone changes.

Some turn bitter ,

Some turn sweeter.

Some grow numb,

Some dare to defeat life.

But life is not a gamble to win.

It is what we are , where we stand and where we go.

As we take bits of what’s offered and leave behind bits that burden us,

We renew ourselves unknowingly at every phase, every turn and every twist.

Living bitter makes you thirsty for happiness,

But happiness is a state of mind.

It is only achieved when your heart and mind are in oneness, in peace, in your inner calm.

You can be happy if you choose 

to not be bitter, but forgiving, 

to be patient and loving,

be kind, but cautious,

be good and brave,

be mature enough to live ,

knowing , understanding and believing in your self worth.

Not what others believe and evaluate.

But what you do.

Your belief of you , sets you apart.

Make that belief strong, withstanding and overpowering your pessimistic notions,

So strong that you are your own shield and sword.

Such a belief that sets you free.

#1 Nature’s lessons

​Thorns… they can hurt you. But they are such a marvel to look at. 

Life makes you walk over thorny bushes, remember that those times are needed to make a marvel out of you.


If you wish to see a better you, the walks that hurt bad cannot be avoided.
