Simple DIY Beauty Products

Perhaps you love wearing makeup, but hate the idea of having to spend a good amount of money on it. Granted, purchasing makeup is neither a cheap nor an easy process (so many options to choose from!), and so it can be frustrating at times when shopping for such products. However there is no need to worry; we have you covered (pun intended) with some easy, do-it-yourself beauty products that you can do at home, without having to go all the way to the store! Let’s get started.

 

Cucumber Mint Sugar Scrub (taken from Bellalimento)

Ingredients:

 1 cucumber

2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves

2 1/2 cups granulated sugar

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

 

Instructions:

Place cucumber and mint into blender. Puree.

Into a medium bowl, add: sugar, puree and olive oil. Stir until combined. NOTE: if you prefer mixture more firm, add additional sugar.

Divide mixture between desired storage containers and store in refrigerator until ready to use.

 Make-Your-Own Exfoliator (taken from Mind Body Green)

Ingredients:

1 tsp honey

1 tsp olive oil

½ cup plain oatmeal

½ cup water

 

Instructions:

Mix honey with olive oil. Separately, cook some plain oatmeal using minimal water so it forms a thick paste. Mix the honey and olive oil into the cooked oatmeal. Let it cool, then apply as a scrub, gently rubbing it in small circles over your skin (avoiding the eye area). Rinse off with warm water.

Uplifting eye cream (taken from Blah Blah Magazine)

 Ingredients:

4 teaspoons avocado oil

2 teaspoons calendula oil

2 teaspoons rosehip oil

½ teaspoon cornstarch or corn flour (the white one)

2 teaspoons melted beeswax (or 10g/0.3oz)

1 vitamin E capsule

3 drops lemon essential oil

 

Instructions:

Use a double boiler or a stainless steel bowl sitting in a pan. Allow the water in the saucepan or base of the double to boil gently. Add all the ingredients, except for vitamin E and essential oil, to the stainless steel bowl (or top of the double boiler) and stir gently, ideally with a whisk, until well and truly melted. Take off the heat and off the water. Stir in essential oil and vitamin E. Pour into sterile jars. Put the lids on once the cream is set and cool.

Thyme Face Toner (taken from Say Not Sweet Anne)

 Ingredients:

Glass jar

Fresh or dried Thyme

Witch hazel (a yellow-flowered shrub that is fragrant and a commonly-used ingredient in lotions).

Coffee filter

Small container to store toner

 

Instructions:

Sterilize your steeping jar, and fill with witch hazel. The astringent nature of witch hazel helps to “tighten” skin and lessen the release of oils. The same principle means that it “locks in” moisture.

Place your thyme into the witch hazel and let it steep for a day or two in a cool dry place. When finished it will be amber in color. Strain your liquid through the coffee filter and into the sterilized toner bottle. To use, simply pump the toner onto a cotton ball and use it in trouble spots, or across your whole face!

Homemade Body Butter (taken from Rawmazing)

 Ingredients:

1 cup organic raw shea butter (solid)

1/2 cup coconut oil (solid)

1/2 cup almond oil (liquid)

 

Instructions:

Melt shea butter and coconut oil in the top of a double boiler. Remove from heat and let cool for 30 minutes. Stir in almond oil and essential oils of your choosing. Place oil mixture in freezer or outside to chill. Wait until oils start to partially solidify (see photo) then whip until a butter-like consistency is achieved. Place in clean, glass jar and enjoy!
