12 Homemade Beauty Recipes inspired by Delicious Foods

12 Homemade Beauty Recipes inspired by Delicious Foods

A yogurt face mask, a ground coffee scrub, a honey cleanser … using food items in DIY beauty remedies is no hot news. In this list, however, you’ll find homemade beauty recipes with a different ‘foodie’ twist.

Instead of containing food items (albeit some natural ingredients are still food-grade or edible), this overview contains DIY beauty recipes that are inspired BY foods.

That’s right. They are specifically made to look like food items, or are inspired by a certain food item. Intrigued yet?

Before you go any further, be warned. Scrolling down this list might make your stomach rumble (Don’t you always get hungry when you see “food”?). So grab a snack, make a cup of hot chocolate or tea and get cozy.

And, let the countdown begin!

Bath Melt ‘Cookies’

It’s dangerous to leave these bath melts out on platter, because someone might actually take a bite! Despite their appearance these are not for eating. But they will make your bath water smell like chocolate heaven!

Hot Cocoa Bath Bombs

Including a deliciously decadent looking faux frosting! This easy “frosting” is made using just left over bath bomb mix and coconut oil. Add some sprinkles and a cinnamon stick, and it will be hard for anyone to tell the difference between these bath bombs and an actual hot chocolate beverage.
