Nature is a good thing to include in our skincare and hair care. For years, we’ve been putting toxic chemicals into our bodies that build up and make us feel tired and sick. This can happen whether we eat them or they seep though our pores.
And people are finally catching on! Natural is better.
Most stores now have a line of “natural” beauty products. Unfortunately, they often come with a big price tag attached too. Often times many of these products are not actually “natural”.
Fortunately, making beauty products at home isn’t too difficult. So if you want beauty products that you know are natural and inexpensive, you can make them yourself.
Easier said than done though! Want some inspiration for homemade beauty recipes?
Here are 3 quick and easy recipes you can make at yourself.
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.
Mash a carrot, avocado, and egg together. Add in a tablespoon of honey.
Just stir well, apply, let sit for about 15 minutes, and then wash off with cool water.
This face mask provides essential vitamins and will help improve the tone and texture of your skin.
After you’re washed and nourished your skin, you can use apple cider vinegar as a toner. I tend to dilute it by adding 1/2 cup of distilled water and 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar together. My sensitive skin can't take much more than that.
This will help tighten your skin and close up your pores and keep your skin looking great.
Many people pay a lot of money for a conditioner that actually makes your hair look and feel good. Here’s a great natural recipe to save you money and help your hair.
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.
Try to add some rose or lavender essential oil to add more variety to your homemade hair conditioner.
Sometimes our hands and feet get left behind in our skincare routines, especially our feet!
Use ½ 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. It's a lovely massage and it will help get rid of dry skin.
When it comes to natural beauty products, these recipes are just the start. You can find hundreds of different combinations in natural beauty books, magazines, and on the internet.
