The big buzz term in the beauty industry right now is "all natural beauty products" – and for good reason. Women (and men) are becoming more conscious of what ingredients go into the products they are using and many prefer simple, natural beauty care.
There are – thankfully – ways for us to make our own natural beauty products at home and there are three big benefits to this:
1. We know exactly what goes into them, because we’re making them ourselves!
2. Most of the ingredients are already right there in our cupboards and refrigerators.
3. These are big money savers! For just a few dollars you could have a home made facial mask that lasts you a few months.
Here are some tried and true homemade all natural beauty product recipes:
Banana face mask:
This is a great way to get rid of those bananas that are a little over ripe:
- 1 cup of plain yogurt
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 banana
Combine all three ingredients in a bowl (smash up the banana) so that the final mixture is like a sticky paste. Apply to your face (you can also apply to your neck and chest) and leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse your face well with lukewarm water and pat dry. Do not keep any extra of this, toss any left overs.
Calming cleanser for sensitive skin:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- plain yogurt
Mix the oatmeal with enough yogurt to "wet" the oatmeal into a paste mixture. Gently smooth over your entire face (avoid the eyes) and rinse well with lukewarm water, then pat dry. Oatmeal is fantastic for soothing irritated skin and sensitive enough for those who cannot tolerate regular cleansers. If there is any mixture left, seal in a tupperware container and refrigerate. Please be aware that it shouldn’t be kept any longer than the yogurt is supposed to be good for (check the yogurt container!).
Home body scrub:
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Take into shower or bath and take generous handfuls and rub into skin. Let the oil mixture sit on skin before rinsing off for extra moisture. Rinse clean with lukewarm water and pat dry. Store any leftover mixture in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Do not keep any longer than a month. This will leave you smooth and smelling fantastic!
