Homemade natural beauty recipes
Nature is the newest trend in skin and hair care. For years, we’ve been putting toxic chemicals into our bodies that build up and make us feel tired and sick, regardless of whether we eat them or if they seep though our pores. And people are finally catching on that 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” so it does pay to do your homework to ensure you are getting what you pay for.
Fortunately actually making beauty products yourself isn’t too difficult. So if you want beauty products that you know are natural and are also inexpensive, just make them yourself.
Here my favorite quick and easy recipes you can make at home yourself. I'll keep adding more as I find them.
Sunscreen. Never go outdoors without it and it's easy to make your own!
Homemade Sunscreen Recipe
Natural Homemade Sunscreen
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.
Separate the white from the yolk of a medium organic egg. (save the yolk for hair conditioner below) Beat with a fork and apply thinly to clean dry face. Let dry 15-30 minutes. Wash off and moisturize with coconut oil or olive oil. Massage oil into skin in a gentle upward motion for apx 3 minutes. Facial massage is better than botox and with constant care you can see amazing results.
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’re 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.
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.
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.
Hand and Foot Care
A quick face mask will help make you look great in not a lot of time, but hands and feet require extra care.
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.
Sugar scrub is my favorite recipe for all over exfoliation. Combine 3 parts/cups sugar with 1 part/cup oil. I use olive oil but you can almond oil or coconut oil. Add in your favorite essential oil and Vitamin C or E oil. Store in the fridge.
