If there’s one thing we are always on the lookout for, it’s tips on how to achieve flawless, glowing skin. Luckily, we have celebrities like Hailey Bieber to let us in on their skincare secrets. Well known for her flawless skin, she recently launched her beauty line, Rhode. While Rhode currently has a waitlist, her viral Strawberry Glaze Skin Smoothie does not.
Launched at Erewhon Market in June, Hailey Bieber’s limited-edition smoothie includes skin-enhancing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid (which, by the way, we did not know you could ingest) and sea moss, which Erewhon described as a “wellness supporting ingredient.” Coming in at $17, this smoothie promises to have your skin glowing from the inside out. If you’re like us and don’t have an Erewhon Market nearby, or if you want to save money (doesn’t everyone?), you can easily re-create the viral smoothie from the comfort of your kitchen. To find out if the smoothie is worth the hype, we tested it out for ourselves.
How to re-create the smoothie
We followed the recipe Vital Proteins shared on their TikTok, which omits the hyaluronic acid and sea moss, making it more budget friendly. Although these two ingredients are the stars of the smoothie show, don’t worry. This recipe is still packed with nutrient-dense flavors that are great for your skin. Almonds contain a nice dose of vitamin E and zinc, while strawberries are good for your heart, and collagen and hyaluronic acid may help your skin cell turnover. Plus, this recipe uses vegan cream instead of dairy, and both maple syrup and dates, sweeteners that have more nutrients than sugar.
That being said, if you want to make the smoothie more authentic to the one sold at Erewhon Market, hyaluronic acid and sea moss are both available to order online. The recipe we followed does call for a strawberry glaze, which you can make yourself. For a more convenient option, it can also be purchased from the store, or you can use an alternative like strawberry jam or preserves.
Once we had our ingredients assembled, it was as simple as tossing them into our Nutribullet and blending until everything was well combined. In the meantime, we used the back of a spoon to spread coconut cream and strawberry glaze onto the sides of our drinking glass. You can skip the aesthetics and put both ingredients at the bottom of your glass for the same effect.
Before trying the smoothie out for yourself, we would be remiss not to mention some quick tips. Depending on your blender, you may need to cut up the dates before blending to save yourself from big chunks of dates. Additionally, make sure to blend the smoothie thoroughly so that the collagen powder is well incorporated. Lastly, while dates, maple syrup, and strawberry glaze contain naturally occurring sugars, the amount this smoothie calls for is something to be mindful of. If you want to make it less sweet, you can simply use only one date or omit the maple syrup or strawberry glaze altogether.
Our thoughts as registered dietitians
We loved the texture of this smoothie. Thanks to the avocado, it was thick and creamy and much fluffier than other smoothies we have tried. The taste reminded us of a strawberry milkshake, and we would recommend this to anyone looking for a delicious post-workout snack or an on-the-go breakfast option.
For us, smoothies are our go-to summer breakfast, and we can see ourselves adding this to our weekly smoothie rotation. we love to toss a handful of greens into our smoothies for an extra nutrient boost, which we plan on doing with this recipe in the future. Chia seeds are our favorite smoothie topping to aid in digestion, and we think they would make an excellent match for this glowing skin smoothie.
While this smoothie does contain some amazing ingredients for your skin (think: healthy fats from the avocado, vitamin C from the strawberries, and collagen for tissue support), we wouldn’t say it’s a magic cure-all for your skincare woes. As always, staying hydrated and eating a well-rounded diet rich in plants and other whole foods will provide essential nutrients to protect and keep your skin healthy.
How to Make Hailey Bieber’s Strawberry Glaze Skin Smoothie
Add all ingredients to a blender with ice, pulse until smooth, then pour into your favorite to-go smoothie cup and get glowing!
Watch this easy tutorial to try it out:
½ cup Organics Almond Milk
1 cup Harry’s Berries strawberries (or frozen strawberries)
2 scoops Vital Proteins Vanilla Collagen
A couple drops or scoops of Neo Cell Hyaluronic Acid (in liquid or powder form)
Organic Coconut Cream (not to be confused with coconut milk)
Sea Moss Gel
¼ cup avocado
1 tsp maple syrup
House-made strawberry glaze, optional
We then poured a small amount of the strawberry glaze and coconut cream into the bottom of the glass, topped it with the smoothie, tossed in a straw, and basked in all of the sweet, skin-loving glory this smoothie promised.
You can replace Collagen Beauty Greens with fresh aloe vera. Aloe vera is a fantastic natural ingredient that helps our skin to retain moisture and improve elasticity. It is full of antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it an excellent component to add to your smoothies.
Dates contain nutrients and antioxidants that can delay the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, giving your skin an extra glow.

Is there anything apple cider vinegar can’t do? It’s one of those kitchen staples, like baking soda or lemons, that has so many benefits—from cooking to cleaning to everything in between. But it’s not just household tasks that can benefit from its magic. Apple cider vinegar also does wonders for the body. Simply add some to your bathwater next time you require a soak, and you’ll be amazed at what it does for your skin, hair, and even your joints.
Benefits of an Apple Cider Vinegar Bath
I firmly believe that apple cider vinegar is a miracle worker that really does do it all, but for it to work, you need to buy the raw, organic kind.Unfiltered and unpasteurized ACV (with the “mother” of live organisms) still contains the vitamins, minerals, and probiotics that are so beneficial to the body. Simply look for a brand like Bragg’s, or head to your local health food store to find the raw stuff. Then hop in the tub and soak away.
Here are just some of the things an apple cider vinegar bath can do:
1. Relieves common skin issues
ACV naturally kills bacteria and yeast on the skin, which can be helpful for people suffering from dry skin, eczema, dandruff, or yeast overgrowth. Because bacteria doesn’t stand a chance around the pH of vinegar, it can also help clear up acne when applied to the face and body. ACV also contains the gentle exfoliant, malic acid, which can help remove dry, dead skin cells and leave fresh, vibrant skin in its place.
2. Soothes inflammation
Vinegar contains acetic acid, one of the components of medications such as aspirin. It can help ease sunburn pain, itching, and inflammation. Soaking sunburned or inflamed skin for 30 minutes can help calm the redness and irritation, so it heals faster.
3. Restores pH balance
Our skin is naturally acidic, but some common bath and body products make our skin a little too alkaline, which can lead to dryness andeczema. Because ACV is acidic, it can help restore our skin’s pH balance, which helps reduce dandruff and makes skin feel soft and moisturized.
4. Eases pain
Applying apple cider vinegar topically is also said to help with muscle and joint pain. If you’re a runner or if you simply suffer from sore knees, take an ACV bath regularly to soothe pain and nurture your joints.
The Best Soothing Herbs for a Bath Soak
To boost the skin-soothing effects of apple cider vinegar, choose flowers and herbs that calm inflammation, and promote relaxation. You can add them to the bathwater directly, or wrap and tie them into a bit of cheesecloth, like when you are making a broth, to soak in their essence. Another way to use them is to brew a concentrated tea, strain, and then swirl into the bathwater—still nice and hot.
A powerful mood booster, rose can moisturize, protect skin from oxidative damage [source], and soothe those itchy and flaky areas. It has also been shown in one study to help joint pain symptoms in patients with arthritis [source]. If you don’t have any roses in your garden or can’t find rose petals, feel free to use rosewaterinstead.
This medicinal herb has known therapeutic benefits. The many compounds within it have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties for the body, but they are also known to have beneficial effects on the emotions [source]. One study showed rosemary’s ability to provide relief of physical and mental fatigue in those with health issues [source].
DIY Apple Cider Vinegar Bath
To reap the benefits of ACV, you can simply add some directly to bathwater. But to really kick things up a notch, why not try combining it with an anti-inflammatory ginger bath soak?
This apple cider vinegar bath is ridiculously easy to make, and chances are you already have everything you need in your kitchen. The Epsom salthelps to relax tired muscles and ease aches and pains, while the baking soda draws toxins from the body. The ginger has a thermogenic effect, which helps raise your body temperature and induce sweating for toxin elimination.
And last but not least, add some flower petals. While it doesn’t aid with the detox, flowers help make the whole thing look nice!
Apple Cider Vinegar Bath FAQs
Can I add oat flour or any flour substitutes to my apple cider vinegar bath?
Yes, definitely! Ground rice flour, oat flour, or even coconut milk powder would be great in this bath soak. I recommend adding about 1/4 cup to the mix.
Can I add essential oils to my bath instead of herbs?
It depends on the essential oils you use. Oils like lavender, frankincense, tea tree, and sandalwood oil can be an excellent addition to your bath. Dilute the essential oils with a carrier oil such as sweet almond or jojoba by combining 6-9 drops of essential oil to 1 tablespoon of carrier oil.
Read this articlefor more information on essential oils and how to mix CBD with your essential oils..
Can this be used in whirlpool tubs without affecting the jets?
Yes, it can. But, I would still check with the manufacturer and see if anyone has the same tub as you and see if they ever used essential oils and flowers to see their results. Or you can always research it, YouTube has become my best friend lol. If you’re still worried about it messing up your tub or your pipes, it’s better to be safe than sorry and just skip it.
How much soak/vinegar should I use per bath?
I recommend using the whole thing: approximately 1 cup each of Epsom salt and vinegar. If you’d prefer, feel free to use less and store any remaining soak in your bathroom cabinet for up to a month.
How often should I do an ACV soak?
Soaking 1–2 times a week is considered safe. If you have sensitive skin or if you notice skin irritation getting worse, it’s best to take a break or consult a doctor.
Other Beauty Uses for Apple Cider Vinegar
ACV shouldn’t just be relegated to the bath. You can also use it to clarify hair, clear up dandruff, and exfoliate dry skin.
Apple Cider Vinegar Bath Soak
Vegan Gluten-free · This apple cider vinegar bath will soothe tired muscles, reduce inflammation, restore your skin’s pH balance, and detox the body. Add some fresh herbs for an anti-inflammatory healing boost.
1 tbsp Ginger, ground
1 Rose petals or herbs, Dried (Optional)
1/4 cup Baking soda
3/4 cup Epsom salt
1 1/2 cups Apple cider vinegar, raw
1 Essential oils
Combine everything except the vinegar in a jar and set aside.
Fill the tub with warm/hot water and add apple cider vinegar. Then add the entire cup of salt bath soak and stir with your hand until completely dissolved.
Hop in the tub and soak for at least 30 minutes. When you’re done, gently blot skin with a towel to remove excess water, and let the vinegar sink into the skin as much as possible. Now is a great time to apply moisturizer to seal in the benefits.
As always, this is not personal medical advice, and we recommend that you talk with your doctor.POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS.BeautyLeeBar gets a small commission, whenever you lovely beauties purchase an item directly from the links that are provided in this post, past posts, and any other posts after this.

🤍 Reduced acne, clogged pores, breakouts and blackheads

How is all of this possible with just one homemade face mask? Take a look!
Hello Beauties, by now everyone knows how Lee and her other Editors are obsessed with skincare. If you didn’t know then you have either been living under a rock or new here; so ” Welcome To BeautyLeeBar ” aka your new favorite beauty go-to blog. Of course, we are still learning about our skin and learning… More
Did you know that turmeric is one of the most powerful herbs for preventing, fighting and even reversing disease? The dozens of healing properties found in the root make it just as effective (if not more) than conventional medicine. (source)
Typically, turmeric is ingested, either from food or in supplement form. But it can be just as healing when applied directly to your skin thanks to its anti-inflammatory abilities. The active ingredient in turmeric, called curcumin (it’s what gives turmeric it’s orange hue), is incredible at purifying and cleansing the skin, resulting in a healthy, bright glow (it’s a ritual at Indian weddings for this very reason!).
Turmeric is also great for acne due to its antiseptic and antibacterial properties, which fight pimples and breakouts, cleansing clogged pores and blackheads. Turmeric even reduces oil secretion from the sebaceous glands, preventing acne from recurring. And its anti-inflammatory properties help soothe flare-ups. (source)
If you want skin that glows with a capital “G,” it comes down to one thing: exfoliation, exfoliation, exfoliation. You’ve got options here: You could slather on an at-home peel with glycolic or lactic acids, pop the top on one of your favorite face scrubs, or whip up a scrub at home with a gentle exfoliant… More
Using honey as part of your skincare routine is easily one of the best things you can do for your skin. But not just any honey. At the very least, you want to make sure you’re using an organic, raw, unpasteurized, unfiltered honey, ideally from a local source.
Why is this so important? Most conventional honey bears are not much different from high fructose corn syrup. Not only that, but when honey is processed using techniques like pasteurization or filtering, the nutrients are removed in the process, leaving with you nothing but sugar.
On the other hand, raw honey is full of amino acids, B vitamins and dozens of vitamins and minerals, like Copper, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc.
Even better? Manuka honey, which is produced in New Zealand by bees that pollinate the Manuka bush, actually has four times the nutritional content of normal flower honey AND considerably higher level of enzymes, which create a natural hydrogen peroxide that works as an antibacterial. (source)
Starting to understand why honey is so amazing for your skin? Considering honey’s antimicrobial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties, honey has been proven to calm redness and irritation, cleanse pores, and soothe and heal skin, whether your ailment is acne, eczema, or even burns and wounds (I’m looking at you, face picker…oh wait, that’s just my reflection in the mirror 😉 )
If you, like me, just can’t help yourself but to pop pimples, you’ll love the effect of honey on your skin! Honey is proven to lighten skin, decrease the appearance of scars and increase healing and tissue regeneration. (source)
Honey improves skin tone and texture, and thanks to its natural antioxidant levels, it’s an effective anti-aging treatment (read: fewer wrinkles). It’s also a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the air into the skin where it’s penetrated and retained for long-lasting hydration. (source)
I have always been a fan of gold mask treatments and knew the benefits. But, truthfully, I just started using gold masks around March of this year. If you follow me @beautyleebar then you know I am a firm believer in self care which sometimes include me trying on different face masks. Discriminating against beauty… More
As if this mask wasn’t amazing enough just with the honey and turmeric, I’ve pushed it full-on over-the-top (in the best way, of course) by adding some natural probiotics in the form of yogurt or kefir.
I actually recommend using coconut kefir for this recipe, as you’ll remove all dairy and lactose concerns and add insane amounts of probiotics to the face mask.
In fact, kefir is one of the most probiotic-rich foods in the world with incredible medicinal and healing benefits (source). But yogurt is totally fine too–just make sure it’s plain/unflavored.
I’m obsessed with DIYs and always have been since I was a teenager. This papaya and honey DIY mask is one of my all-time faves as it brightens, hydrates, improves tone and texture, and most importantly leaves your skin glowy AF. It’s also great for acne-prone skin as it can help reduce inflammation and fight acne-bacteria,… More
With its natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, yogurt and kefir are also chockfull of protein, calcium and vitamin D, which help fight acne, nourish your skin, leaving if soft and hydrated. (source)
Not only that, but the lactic acid in yogurt will help dissolve dead skin and tighten pores by gently exfoliating your skin to create a natural glow and prevent breakouts. Did I mention this natural acid will also diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles?
AND AND AND, when used regularly, yogurt has very mild bleaching properties to help with discoloration, blotchiness, acne scars and age spots. YES!
If it wasn’t enough that half of our lovely faces must remain covered by masks these days, now we are starting to suffer breakouts as a result. It doesn’t help that we are entering a heat wave and the height of summer is around the corner, just in time to bundle up an area we typically let… More
If you’ve been following BEAUTYLEEBAR, you know that the sheer amount of toxic and harmful chemicals and additives allowed in our skincare products is truly APPALLING!
Unfortunately, face masks are no different. Most store-bought options are brimming with artificial colors and preservatives, hormone-disrupting chemicals like parabens and phthalates, harsh alcohols and acids that irritate our skin and cause allergies, and even carcinogenic additives.
If those toxic chemicals weren’t enough to convince you to make your own, consider the AMAZING MONEY SAVINGS you’ll find when you make your own face masks.
How four eyes become five After months of procrastinating to get a new prescription, I finally decided to splurge on a pair of glasses… can’t wait! But with them came a surprise: acne. It seemed like there was a new pimple on the bridge of my nose basically every other day. Because I hadn’t purchased my new… More
And, of course, by now you know that I’ve gotta take a minute to just talk about how easy it is to make your own skincare products.
I often get comments from readers saying things like “I just wish I had the time” or “If only I had the discipline to make my own products.”
Listen, this recipe is literally as simple as pouring THREE natural ingredients into a bowl, stirring and… THAT’S IT! You’re done. It’s been less than 30 seconds and you’ve made an incredible face mask!
BUT, if you’re still not convinced you want to make your own face mask, there are a few safer store-bought options I’d recommend:
But just note that none of these face masks combine the healing powers of honey AND probiotics! For that, you’ll just have to add in those ingredients.
FAQS FOR THIS DIY TURMERIC HONEY FACE MASK
Inevitably, I always get a lot of questions about DIY skincare products. No complaints–I LOVE hearing from you! But to help a baddie out, I thought I’d share some of the most frequently asked questions I get about this homemade face mask:
🤍 How to prepare this DIY Turmeric and Honey Face Mask? I’ve already talked about how easy it is to make this mask, and the detailed recipe below should help answer any remaining questions you have. But if not, feel free to leave a question in the comments and I’ll be sure to answer.
🤍 How to apply a Turmeric Honey Mask? If you’re looking at this mask and wondering how to use it, don’t worry–it couldn’t be easier. Simply use your fingers or a clean paint brush and apply the mixture directly onto clean skin, covering your entire face except for your eyes, nostrils and lips. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes.
🤍 How to remove a Turmeric Honey Mask? Likewise, you might be wondering how to get this mask off. Again, it’s easy as pie. Over the sink, splash your face with water, gently massaging the mask off your face until there’s no more left on your skin. It’s just like any other face mask you’ve tried before 🙂
🤍 How to store homemade face masks? Unlike store-bought masks that are filled with toxic preservatives, this homemade face mask recipe is just for one batch, or a single-use that should be applied to your skin as soon as it’s made. Otherwise, the mask will harden if left out too long, so make it as needed.
🤍 How often should you use this Turmeric Honey Mask? The skin on our faces is extremely delicate, and even if you don’t think you have sensitive skin, I’d recommend using a mask no more than 2-3 times per week, max. I try to use this mask once a week, and then this DIY Charcoal + Clay Mask a few days after. Usually I’ll put the mask on during or after I take a DIY Epsom Salt Detox Bath.
🤍 Does this turmeric face mask stain? I recommend only leaving them on for 10-15 minutes to avoid staining your skin temporarily. If you follow the instructions, you should be able to use this turmeric face mask without staining. BUT, if you run into any trouble, don’t worry! Simply apply this DIY Makeup Removerto a cotton pad and swipe it over your skin until all yellow/orange residue of the mask is removed. You can also try washing your face with a mild cleanser. Be careful not to get it on your clothes, as the turmeric will stain. p.s. turmeric will stain your clothes. it could stain your skin, so just use a thin layer. The thicker the mask, the more likely it is to stain you skin. If your skin does get stained, wash your face twice and it should easily go away!
🤍 Can turmeric cause allergic reactions? Some people have reported allergic reactions to turmeric after skin exposure, so I recommend testing this mask on a small area of your skin first, like your wrist or a small patch on your face. Most people only have positive results, but everybody reacts differently, so it’s important to test your own skin’s reaction before applying it all over your face.
