The Beauty Kitchen: Whipping Homemade Beauty Treatments


We need to take care of ourselves if we want to look good. Many Singaporeans consider the not so economical way of pampering – salons or spas. For those who do not want to burn their wallets when payday is just not yet on its way, we have to consider our beauty kitchen.


We can scour our kitchen for different ingredients that can help us with our skin for instance. The challenge here is what to consider? This article will supply us with different ingredients and mixtures that are good for the skin. Here are simple ingredients that are pocket-friendly:

Chamomile Tea

Drinking chamomile tea has many health benefits from anti-inflammatory to fighting free radicals. Not all Singaporeans know that chamomile tea mixed with powdered milk can soothe sensitive skin. It does not end there because chamomile tea is also known for its pore-tightening and skin relaxing qualities. If we want to pamper our feet especially after the long day at the office, we can use chamomile tea and make tea soak.

We need three to four bags if chamomile tea and water. After securing ingredients, we should put hot water in a small bowl with the tea bags and let it steep in the water for ten minutes. Next thing to do is separate the tea bags and from the tea and put the tea in the basin filled with warm water. We can now put our feet for fifteen minutes.



Bananas contain vitamin B6 which can maintain the skin elasticity. Bananas also contain vitamin A which replenish moisture levels of skin. We can make a mask out of it. We only need banana of course and one tablespoon honey. We should mash the baba first in a bowl and mix the money until banana turns brown. Before applying the mask, we have to wash our face first and apply it. We can leave it for ten to fifteen minutes and rinse it afterwards.


Coffee is known to decrease the appearance of cellulite and is known for its anti-inflammatory qualities – which is best for puffy under eye circles. We only need two cups of ground coffee, one half cup of raw sugar and two tablespoon of olive oil. We should mix all the ingredients in one bowl. Before applying it, we have to prepare the skin by taking hot shower to open the pores. While in the shower, we can start scrubbing our skin with the mixture. After that, we should rinse it with cold water.


Transforming Your Day Time Look to Night Time Glam

Sometimes things just happen here in Singapore. One moment you are in your workplace the next you are invited for a party. Unfortunately you do not have time to go to department stores and look for dresses. What will you do? This is the perfect time for transformation from day time look to night time glam.


The good news is that you can transform in less than thirty minutes if you are serious about looking great. You do not need to wear the same clothes or the same look. Here are some tips that you can use:

  • Fix your hair. The first thing that you need to do is fix your hair. You can opt for high buns or pony tail. If flat iron is available, you can curl your hair. It will only take less than five minutes depending on your speed.
  • Accessorize. Throw away plain accessories for the night and go for eye-catching ones. You have to choose accessories that will complement your dress. Be careful not to overdo it.


  • Make up. You already have existing eyeliner. What makes it more dramatic is throwing darker eye shadow. You have to think first what part of the face you want to emphasize. If it is your lips, be subtle about your eyes.
  • What to wear. If you only have your work clothes with you, you should think of many ways to make it look sexy. Do not forget about the heels. It will make you more attractive and appealing.

However, there are other Singaporeans who are not particular about night time glam. For these women, they just go with the flow and do not put much effort. That is their decision. If you want to look your best though, transformations are necessary.
