Huda Kattan is known for her DIY skincare solutions. Whatever be the problem may be, the Wishful Skin founder and Huda Beauty co-founder always has a quick fix up her sleeve, even if it’s an at-home remedy.
We’ve rounded up some of Huda’s best beauty and skin treatments that you can create right from the comforts of your home – and with ingredients in your kitchen. See them all below.
Face Masks To Fix Acne
“The nutmeg, honey and milk mask is one of my favourites that I’ve been using for very long. It is ideal for anyone with dull, acne-prone skin,” Huda said. The soothing properties of milk will help calm sensitive and inflamed skin while the anti-inflammatory nutmeg fades acne scars, improves dry skin and stimulates blood circulation.
Pro-Tip: If you are in your twenties, now is the right time to start with natural exfoliants such as milk to keep your skin looking young and fresh.
How-To: Mix one portion nutmeg with three portions of milk and half a portion honey to prepare the mask and leave it on for a minimum 10 minutes to see visible results.
Sweet Almond Oil for Dark Circles
With a lot of uncertainty and stress around the world, you might have noticed changes in your eating and sleeping habits, which can cause under-eye circles. Sweet almond oil is a dark circle remedy Huda lives by because it helps to de-puff and brighten the area surrounding the eyes.
Pro-Tip: Applying the oil around your eyelids will lead to prettier and healthier brows and lashes.
How-To: Soak two cotton pads in sweet almond oil and start massaging your under-eye area starting from the inner corner to the temples with slight pressure. Repeat on upper eyelids and leave it in overnight to work its magic.
Garlic Solution for Odourless Nail Hardening
“One of the best things I learned from mom was how garlic is nourishing for your nails. It is one of the fastest ways to make sure your nails are clean, white and beautiful,” Huda recalls. It also helps in making tired-looking, flaky nails grow to be healthier.
Pro-Tip: Mixing garlic pieces with clear nail polish removes the unwanted smell.
How-To: Slice a clove of garlic and mix them with clear nail polish for a quick at-home nail hardener. Coat your nails with a layer once or twice a week for best results.
