I didn’t used to create my own products at home. I thought it was silly. Why would I go through the effort of buying single ingredients just to spend so much time making one product?
I’ve always had sensitive skin, even when I was a little girl. My parents bought product after product for me, trying to get rid of my dry skin. And it wasn’t just dry, it hurt too. I spent a lot of my childhood indoors because too many things bothered my already irritated skin.
After years of researching skin and skincare products, I tried creating my own products just to see if it made a difference. While the at home skincare products didn’t cure my irritated skin, it didn’t make my skin worse or create new problems.
It wasn’t until I changed my diet and my lifestyle that my skin truly cleared up. I still have flareups from time to time, especially if I eat dairy. But my skin has gotten a lot better!
I do believe that creating and using my own products really helped my skin. And I’m here to help you achieve your goals of creating homemade products!
Not only are these products easy to make, but they are SO much healthier than using commercial products.
Learning how to make natural beauty products at home is very beneficial. You will be helping the environment and you will be saving a ton of money! Many commercial cosmetic products include chemicals or detergents. These are harmful to your skin. Not only that, but when the products are washed off of your skin and go down the drain, the chemicals have a chance to get into the water supply.
Making your own natural beauty products out of common household items is a much healthier way to go and it can be a big help to the environment.

Olive Oil is a Useful Kitchen Ingredient to Use
Olive oil is a very versatile home remedy that can be used for a number of natural beauty purposes. It will moisturize the dry skin of your elbows, cuticles, knees, and feet. Olive oil can be added to a warm bath for even more moisture and softness.
For dry hair or scalp, warm some olive oil in a container. Take the oil into the bath with you and while you are relaxing in the warm water, rub the olive oil into your hair. Let it sit for about 20 minutes. When you are done with your bath, take a hot shower and wash your hair with shampoo at least twice to get the oil out of your hair.
You can even make your own natural exfoliating treatment from olive oil. Mix the oil with twice as much brown sugar to create a thick paste. Use this paste as a pre-shower skin treatment by rubbing gently into the skin. Rinse thoroughly in the shower to remove all paste and any dead skin cells that may have been scraped off.
These are just a few of the many ingredients you can use to make products at home without spending much money.
Other great home remedies include facial cleansers, herbal bath soaks, skin butter, and natural body scrubs.
Most of these recipes can be made with simple ingredients that you already have at home. Now that you know how easy it is, jump right in and learn how to make natural beauty products of your own.
