DIY Beauty Playbook: Try These At-Home Skincare Recipes

At-home beauty has taken on a whole new meaning in recent months.
We're spending more time than ever in our homes, and our favorite salons and spas have only recently reopened for socially-distant services. That means there's been plenty of time to experiment with DIY beauty recipes. Here, Taylor tested out three skincare recipes made with everyday household ingredients–think coconut oil, yogurt, and avocado–to use on her face and lips.
