Could you go Au Natural with Homemade Beauty Products?
A BellaSugar.com writer did in her blog. She decided to use only homemade beauty products for a whole month and had some scary results but some amazing results as well. Her first week using her homemade beauty products she broke out all over her face and smelled like a ‘salt carny’, but by the second and third weeks she had noticed dramatic improvements like extra shiny hair. Check out Bella’s blog here.
If you are up for the challenge, try to make your own homemade beauty products and test them out. Here are some recipes to get you started:
DIY Honey Facial Recipe (courtesy of Bella Sugar)
1 tbsp honey—I used regular honey, nothing fancy
1 tsp ground nutmeg—I used whole nutmeg and then grated it myself
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Mix the above together until they form a chocolatey-colored paste, adjusting as you go until you get the consistency you like. Let sit for about 30 minutes, then rinse off, using the nutmeg crumblies as a natural exfoliant. Just don't wear a cute shirt while you're doing this, since it'll drip.
Will Blog for Beauty’s DIY Salt Scrub:
½ cup coarse sea salt
½ cup olive oil
1 tbsp vitamin E oil
2 drops essential oil of grapefruit
2 drops essential oil of spearmint
2 drops essential oil of orange
Combine all ingredients until well blended. Store in a glass jar in the bathroom.
