DIY HOME BEAUTY

We've been chatting to a few of our local beauty experts and will be bringing you a series of kitchen cupboard treatments and home beauty guides.

I’m dreaming of a relaxing spa day – all by myself, no kids, Google classroom, confined spaces! I know, I know – time to wake up and smell the aromatherapy oils. But it’s ok ladies, Muddy is one step ahead and will be bringing you lots of lovely DIY home beauty hacks courtesy of some of our local spa and beauty businesses.

First up, the spa team at our Muddy Award Winning Boutique Hotel – The Norfolk Mead and their DIY hydrating face mask. It’s really easy, you’ll find most of the ingredients in the kitchen cupboards and if you can bear to share, it’s a great little activity to do with the kids.

Ingredients:

  • Large G&T – for extra relaxation.
  • Half an avocado
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • Half a cup of rolled oats
  • A slice of cucumber for each eye

Method:

  • Mash your avocado
  • Add honey and oats and mix
  • Apply to clean skin
  • Drink aforementioned large G&T
  • Leave on and relax for 10 minutes with the cucumber slices over your eyes and then massage into the skin to mildly exfoliate
  • Remove with a warm facecloth/flannel

Benefits:

Avocado – High in Magnesium to enrich and nourish dry or chapped skin. High in vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids which are great for hydration, firming and toning to give the skin a beautiful glow.

Honey – Super hydrating as it contains many vitamins and minerals that are essential for the skin to retain its moisture. Also, extremely soothing and healing.

Rolled Oats – Mild cleansing benefits which can help to heal dry/chapped/eczema-prone skin by restoring the skin’s natural barrier, reducing itching and regulating inflammation. They’re also an excellent exfoliant for sensitive skin types. Finally they contains lots of lipids and proteins which are really hydrating to the skin.

Cucumber – this is the perfect cooling, hydrating and de-puffing treatment for tired eyes.

G&T – A natural relaxant and calming agent, many of us consider this as essential as oxygen.

We’d love to see your efforts, so take a picture and share it with us on instagram @muddynorfolk and @norfolkmead_treatmentrooms.

If you have any questions you can contact the therapists directly via their email relax@norfolkmead.co.uk or their Instagram page.  

For when life returns to normal, we can highly recommend a stay at The Norfolk Mead Hotel, read our full review HERE.
