Beauty product ideas to do at home

You no longer have cleansing milk, moisturizing mask or foundation? Do not panic ! Do you know that your kitchen is full of unsuspected treasures, and that you often unknowingly have many useful ingredients to make natural beauty products at home? We’re here to help yoy discover some recipes to make at home.

Makeup remover

Do you think that tap water will do the trick? The answer is no !

Often too calcareous, it attacks the skin and does not overcome traces of makeup.

Our tip:  You can baste your face with vegetable oil (olive, argan, avocado, sweet almond …). when the face is thoroughly cleansed, pat down with a cotton swab and rinse with clear water.

Out of moisturizing masks?

Milk can work wonders on your skin.

For a moisturizing mask, you will need :

  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • Some slices of crushed banana

Mix, apply the mask on the skin, leave for 30 minutes then rinse with warm water.

For an exfoliating mask you will need :

  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 1 spoon of honey
  • 2 spoons of oatmeal

Apply the mixture on the face, leave for 30 minutes then rinse with warm water

For a tonic lotion use :

  • 1 tablespoon of milk
  • 1 tablespoon green tea powder

Apply this mixture on your face for a double moisturizing and antioxidant action.

A natural foundation ? It’s possible !

Making a natural foundation yourself is quite possible even if the recipe includes a lot of ingredients.

In a bowl, whisk all the following ingredients together:

  • ¼ cup of arrowroot powder (similar to corn starch – a thickening agent)
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger powder (slightly more if your skin is matte)
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
  • 2 teaspoons of gray bentonite clay

Test the color by applying the cream on your neck for example, then adjust the dosage according to your complexion.
