Beauty DIY To Try This Weekend: Calm & Glow Face Mask
Ah, DIYs. Sometimes you want to get your Martha Stewart on, walk into the kitchen and CREATE. And sometimes, you just want to throw mashed avocado into your hair and call it day. The great thing about natural beauty is that you can use whole ingredients to craft your very own beauty rituals, while also tapping into that creative streak. I have a few tried and true DIYs I regularly turn to, but I also always need more. So, I’m asking beauty industry experts to share their favorite beauty DIYs with us. These experts know their ingredients like the back of their hands, so you can trust that what they whip up will be a total treat.
The Expert: Candera Thompson, founder of Bask & Bloom Essentials
Candera Thompson is a wife, mother of three and entrepreneur who is passionate about all things beauty and self care. While transitioning to natural hair shortly after having her first child, she experienced lots of dryness and breakage. She decided to use her love for herbal teas and at-home remedies to solve this problem. The result is a full product line called Bask and Bloom with natural and organic ingredients for healthier hair and skin.

Try out Bask and Bloom’s Rhassoul & Bentonite Clay Shampoo Bar. It’s a dual product that can be used to cleanse the hair as well as a facial bar.
