EXCLUSIVE! Wake Up Flawless Just Like Beyoncé — Skincare Guru Adina Diaz Reveals Her Homemade DIY Brightening Mask & Moisturizer!
As you've probably noticed, there's not much we love more than glowing skin!
After all, who doesn't want to look as radiant as Beyoncé, for one??
Well, we EXCLUSIVELY spoke to Beverly Hills skincare expert Adina Diaz of Adina Diaz Your Skincare Guru to get the scoop on achieving a flawless face just like your fave celebs.
And as it turns out, the secret is right in your kitchen!
Looking for a hydrating moisturizer? All you need are TWO simple ingredients! According to Adina:
"This two-ingredient, oil-based moisturizer can do it all! Nut and seed oils range from light to sheer (rosehip oil or jojoba oil) to rich and deeply emollient (macadamia nut or sweet almond oil). Vegetable Carrier Oil + Essential Oil = Bath Oil, Body Oil Moisturizer, Massage Oil or Hair Treatment. Voilà!"
Combining 1/2 cup of a vegetable skincare oil and 24 drops of essential oil or blend (Adina recommends lavender or rose for essential blend), mix the oils and place in a bottle or jar and use for the face and neck after cleansing.
There you have it!
Of course, no summer skincare routine would be complete without a brightening mask. While there are brands that carry their own, like Kiehl's' Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque, it's also just as easy to make at home!
Adina shared her own completely natural recipe, adding:

And now, it's happening yet again — but this time with the ingredients in the company's baby formula.

According to Page Six, the accusations read:

A favorite among eco-conscious celebs, Anne went to the store to pick up some bushels of grass (lolz) when the paps decided to go snap-snap-snap!
But even with the intrusion, Anne kept her calm… unlike the situation she recently encountered at LAX!

According to Fran:
Chrissy, three words: organic, organic, organic! (Okay, maybe it’s just one, but you get the point!) We have to recognize that what we put IN our bodies is just as, if not as important as what we put on them!
I say try to cut back on animal protein and dairy products. Also, it’s probably no shock that processed and chemical soaked foods are not good for our systems. So go organic, go whole grains, and go natural! And now, go grocery shopping for your organic goodies. Your body will thank you!
