How To Make Stephanie Broek's Glowy DIY Face Oil

Ultimate fashion girl and our very own Insta crush Stephanie Broek let us in on a little skincare secret last week. Streaming via our Insta Live, she took us into her kitchen and taught us how to make a glowy DIY face oil, using ingredients you’d typically find in your own pantry. If you missed the Live, don’t stress! Stephanie’s little skin snack lives on below, so now you can treat yourself, whenever you want, without having to leave the house or spend a dime.

What You'll Need

Only four things! Coconut oil, which kills bacteria and is full of vitamin C, helping to stimulate collagen to keep your skin taught and elastic (if you're prone to breakouts or have oily skin already, go for a collagen-boosting alternative like mashed up kiwifruit or carrot). Turmeric, which targets pores, reduces acne and any scars, and is anti-inflammatory and calming. Oats, which have avenanthramides, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds that soothe dry skin. And (plant-based, if you like) yoghurt, which adds moisture and evens out skin tone.

Next Steps

Mix it all into a golden glory. Two spoons of coconut oil (or substitute), one spoon of turmeric, one spoon of oats and one spoon of yoghurt. Adjusting according to your textural needs. Take this moment to decide if you’re likely to spill this on yourself, change into a dark t-shirt. It’s also a smart idea to do a small test on your skin, monitoring if there is any irritation or staining — turmeric may stain paler skin.

Application

Gently apply to a clean face, lightly massaging into problem areas with your fingertips. Leave on for 10-15 minutes. Rise, tell yourself you’re beautiful and share this recipe with a friend. Follow @stephaniebroek for so much inspo.
