“All-natural beauty products” have been the newest “in-thing” I have noticed in the last few months. Lately, women have been talking about the toxic chemicals that seep into our pores and end up in our bodies making us sick because of the beauty products that we have used in the past. People are finally catching on that natural is way much better than any other thing.
If you walk through the isles of your local stores, you’ll notice that they now carry a line of natural beauty products. The only downside is that “natural” products usually cost more money. Well, many times, some of these so-called “natural products” are not even “natural” so it would help if consumers do a bit of homework before they shell out some big bucks on much-needed beauty supplies.
The awesome thing is … you can actually make your own beauty products – it’s not that hard. If you make your own beauty products, then you are guaranteed that they are indeed natural and the cost is way less. Below are some easy recipes you can follow to start making your own natural beauty products:
1. Face Mask
Eating good food helps give you the right nutrients you need to look good. You can get more of these vitamins and minerals by putting the good stuff right on the skin.
Combining a mashed carrot, mashed avocado, and a beaten egg with a half cup a few tablespoons of honey creates a great face mask that provides vitamins and improves the tone and texture of your skin. Just stir well, apply, let sit for about 15 minutes, and then wash off with cool water.
After you’ve washed and nourished your skin, you can use grated cucumber or diluted lemon juice as a toner to help tighten your skin and close up your pores to close your pores and keep your skin looking great.
2. Hair Conditioner
Many people pay a lot of money for a conditioner that actually makes your hair look and feel good. Heres a great natural recipe to save you money and help your hair.
Just mix an egg yolk with a tablespoon of castor oil and apply to hair. Let sit for about ten minutes and rinse out. You can use this every so often as a conditioning treatment for healthy shiny hair. If you like being experimental, you can try mixing other kitchen items, herbs, and natural items with eggs for healthy, shiny hair.
3. Hand and Foot Cream
A quick face mask will help make you look great in not a lot of time, but hands and feet require extra care.
Use a cup of olive oil mixed with natural sea salt and massage into your hands and feet. Leave a few minutes to soak and then rinse off with warm water.
These recipes are just the start when it comes to natural beauty products. You can do your own research and find different combinations. There are tons of books, magazines, and resources online that can help you with your search. You could also go to your kitchen cabinet and make your own special creations.
