Home Made Honey Face Mask
This simple face mask is so easy to make – one ingredient!
1 large spoon of honey
A small microwaveable bowl
Step 1 – Microwave the honey in a bowl for 5-10 seconds.
Step 2 – While waiting for the honey to cool, cleanse your face, ensuring that all of your make up is removed.
Step – 3 Take some of your cooled honey (just scoop it up with your fingers) and apply it directly onto your face. Don’t get the honey into your eyes!
Step 4 – Let the mask sit on your skin for around ten minutes. Try to use this time to relax. If you can lie down and close your eyes, do so. Once the ten minutes are up, rinse your honey mask off.
Step 5 – Gently dry your face, and apply your usual moisturiser.
Honey is a natural antiseptic, so this mask will give your skin a deep cleanse. If you need a more moisturising mask, try mashing some avocado in with your honey – or you could even spoon in some natural yoghurt!
DIY Strawberry Tooth Whitening Treatment
Although your college studies are keeping you focussed, never forget that your smile is your biggest asset! Healthy teeth and gums are vital, not only for the way you look, but also for your overall health.

A small cup
A pinch of baking soda

Step 2 – Brush your teeth as you normally would. Then rinse your mouth thoroughly, making sure that all of the strawberry seeds are washed away.
Step 3 – Do one final rinse with water and a pinch of baking soda – this acts to neutralise any remaining acidity from the strawberry.

Step 5 – Take your towel and put your hair up into a turban.
