This week’s Quarantine Beauty Routine Recipes are for healing your feet and sunburned shoulders after spending hours walking in the sun protesting. Here’s what you’ll need:⁠

“Pep in your step” – Peppermint Foot Scrub:⁠
• 1-2 cups sugar or epsom salt⁠
• 1/2 cup coconut oil, grapeseed oil, or olive oil⁠
• 10 drops peppermint essential oil or fresh peppermint⁠

Mix all your ingredients together and pour into a jar. (If you are using fresh peppermint, you may want to grind it up first.) You can use more or less sugar until you’re happy with the consistency. Using more sugar will result in a more firm scrub. Store for up to 6 months. Use once a week in a foot bath or prior to showering.

Healing Aloe Lotion:⁠
• 1/4 cup coconut oil⁠
• 1/4 cup almond oil or other carrier oil⁠
• 1/4 cup aloe vera gel or 1 medium sized aloe leaf⁠
• 5 drops lavender and frankincense essential oil (optional)⁠

If you are using fresh aloe vera, cut and clean it first. Blend into a gel. Combine your aloe vera gel with the almond oil and coconut oil. and blend using a hand mixer for 8-10 minutes. This will make the lotion airy and light. Once it is light and buttery, add any essential oils you are using. Store for 3-4 months in the fridge and reapply as necessary.

This Quarantine Beauty Routine is all about Hand Masks.

Hand masks work just like face masks. They infuse and trap moisture, nutrients, or other benefits into the skin. Here are two separate recipes for keeping your hands nourished:

Potato Hand Mask:
– 1 small potato, peeled
– 1 Tbsp olive oil
Place the small potato in a medium pot and cover with water. Place over high heat and bring to a boil. Allow the potato to boil for 5-10 minutes, or until you can easily pierce it with a fork. Remove and drain. Allow the potato to cool and mash it with a fork in a small bowl. Add in the olive oil to form a thick paste. Apply the mask to your hands in a circular motion and allot it to sit for 15+ minutes. Rinse off, pat dry, and follow up with a hand cream.

Avocado Hand Mask:
– 1/2 avocado
– 1 egg white
– 2 Tbsp of oats
– 1 Tbsp lemon juice
Mix all ingredients in a bowl, forming a thick paste. Apply the mask and allow it to sit for 20+ minutes.Rinse off, pat dry, and follow up with a hand cream.

Quarantine Beauty Routine recipe time ?. This go around we’re treating your hair to a quick and easy Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse that will leave it shiny + silky. ⁠

Apple cider vinegar does wonders for the hair. It helps maintain moisture, detangles, stimulates hair growth, removes product + chemical buildup, restores pH, soothes itchy and dry scalp, and makes your hair shine. Pretty exciting, right?⁠ (Love the idea of this product but not into DIY? Grab a bottle of Pantry’s Scalp Therapy!)

For this recipe you’ll need:⁠
• 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar⁠
• 1/2 cup water⁠
• 3 drops lavender essential oil or infused lavender (optional)⁠
• 3 drops rosemary essential oil or infused rosemary (optional)⁠
• A spray bottle⁠

How to use:⁠
• Mix all of the ingredients and add them to your spray bottle.⁠
• Keep it in the shower, and shampoo as normal.⁠
• Spray a generous amount into your hair and massage. ⁠
• Let it sit for a few minutes then quickly, not thoroughly, rinse it out. ⁠

Use around 3 times a week in place of conditioner. Your hair will smell of vinegar while it’s wet, but you won’t smell it once your hair is dry. ⁠

It’s time for another Quarantine Beauty Routine DIY! ?⁠

For our second recipe, we’re doing another face mask! For this mask, you’re going to want to save those coffee grounds in the morning, because this is an Eggs + Coffee Grounds mask! ☕⁠ (Love coffee but not into DIY? Grab a tub of Pantry’s Choco + Coffee Body Polish)

Eggs are great for deep cleansing treatments and the protein is good for firming up your skin. The egg whites will even help to shrink or tighten pores. The caffeine in the coffee works as a constrictor to reduce swelling and inflammation. When mixed together, these ingredients will preserve and renew your skin with protein and nutrients. If you don’t like the idea of using eggs, simply substitute a tablespoon of raw honey for the egg. ?⁠

Here’s what you’ll need:⁠
1 whole egg⁠
1 T fine coffee grounds⁠

Combine the egg with the coffee grounds. Gently massage the mask onto your face, in circular motions, avoiding your eyes. This will gently exfoliate your skin and remove dead cells off the surface. Leave on for about five minutes. Wash your face thoroughly and pat dry with a clean towel. (Pro-tip: If you still have coffee grounds left over, use them to scrub your body in the shower!) ⁠

Do you know how we got our name, Pantry Products? Before we had production space and bulk ingredients and our local shops, Michelle was whipping up natural products for her friends + family with ingredients from… you guessed it… her kitchen pantry! ?⁠

We’re heading back to our roots and teaching you all how to treat yourself with ingredients that are hiding in your kitchen, in a new series we’re calling “Quarantine Beauty Routine!” These recipes will be quick + easy ways to have some fun and pamper yourself without leaving the house.⁠

This time, we’ll be teaching you how to make a lemon and baking soda face mask. ? Lemon balances the skin, leaving you with a natural glow. It also has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and can brighten up dark spots over time. The baking soda will act as a powerful microdermabrasion and leave you with healthy, radiant, glowing skin. ? (Love this sound of this but not into DIY? Grab a tub of Pantry’s Honey + Lemon Exfoliating Face Scrub). ⁠

Here’s what you’ll need:⁠
• 1/2 lemon⁠
• 2 Tbsp. baking soda⁠

Start by cutting your lemon in half. Slowly sprinkle the baking soda over the sliced half. Gently rub the lemon half over your face in circular motions for about 10 minutes (be careful around your eyes!) Wash your face thoroughly and pat dry with a clean towel. If you’d like, you can also mix the lemon juice and baking soda in a bowl to form a paste, and apply that mixture directly to your skin. ⁠
