Most of us think that, in order to get our hands on really good natural skin care products, we have to spend quite some money. However, that’s far from being true!
Given the fact that we now have access to a variety of natural ingredients throughout shops and whatnot, it’s much easier for the ones that wants to keep their skin healthy to make their own natural skin care products.
Moreover, when making your own products, you are sure that the ingredients are indeed 100% natural and you don’t have to look into a certain brand’s details to find out if the products really are natural.
Therefore, without any further ado, here are six homemade natural skin care recipes – some might be exactly what you needed to take better care of your skin!
- Face Wash
For an all-natural face wash, you’ll need ¾ cups of cooled organic brewed chamomile tea, ¼ cups of liquid castile soap, ½ tsp of organic almond oil, 3 to 4 drops of vitamin E oil, 8 drops of Frankincense essential oil, and 8 drops of Lavender essential oil.
Take a foaming soap bottle of around 4 to 6 oz., and add the organic almond oil, vitamin E oil, and the liquid Castile soap. Then, add the essential oils and fill the bottle with chamomile tea all the way to the top. Now, shake it and use it!
- Facial Scrub
For a homemade natural facial scrub, you’ll need 1 tbsp of baking soda, 1 or 2 drops of Frankincense essential oil, 1 or 2 drops of Lavender essential oil, and water.
This facial scrub is quite easy to mix up – grab a small jar, put the ingredients in and mix them. You can also use the same jar to store the facial scrub.
When using the scrub, make sure to add enough water to make a paste to it – but use only 1 to 2 tsp of facial scrub at a time.
- Face Lotion
If you have sensitive dry skin, then this recipe will do wonders on you! All you need is 3 ½ tbsp of organic Shea butter, 2 tbsp of Jojoba oil, 3 tbsp of Aloe Leaf juice, 1 tsp of vitamin E oil, 4 drops of Lavender essential oil, a pint-sized mason jar, and a small glass for storing your lotion.
In order to make this face lotion, you start off by adding the Jojoba oil and Shea butter in the mason jar. Then, add a cup of water in a saucepan, place it on the stove, and turn the heat to medium-high. Place the jar in the saucepan and start stirring – this will slowly melt the aforementioned ingredients.
Once they melt, add the Aloe juice, which should be lukewarm. Then, you have to whip the ingredients for around 5 minutes using a food processor or a hand-held immersion blender. Finally, add the essential oils of your choice and pour the contents into a small jar or glass that can be sealed.
- Facial Toner
You’ll need only 4 ingredients to make your own facial toner – but you’ll have to mix them differently, depending on your type of skin.
You need filtered water, raw apple cider vinegar, Lavender essential oil, and Frankincense essential oil.
For normal to dry skin, you’ll have to mix 1/3 parts vinegar to 2/3 parts filtered water. Then, add a couple of drops of Lavender/Frankincense oil.
For acne-prone and oily skin, mix ½ parts vinegar and ½ parts of filtered water. Again, add your essential oil of choice.
The toner has to be stored in a glass bottle and kept at room temperature and you should use it two times a day – when you wake up and before going to bed.
- Facial Serum
For this recipe, you’ll need 1 oz rosehip seed oil, 5 drops of Frankincense essential oil, 5 drops of Myrrh essential oil, 5 drops of Lavender essential oil, 5 drops of Aroma Life essential oil blend, and 2 drops of Rose/Geranium.
Then, grab a 1 oz glass bottle with a dropper and add all the essential oils in it. Now, take the rosehip seed oil and fill the bottle and mix the ingredients a bit.
- Charcoal Peel-Off Mask
These masks are great for removing impurities and such. However, when you buy one, you are often left with the impression that it did nothing to help your skin. Here’s how you can make your own.
You’ll need one capsule of activated charcoal, ¼ tsp of bentonite clay, 1 tsp of non-flavored gelatin, 1 to 2 drops of tea tree essential oil, and 2 tsp of boiling hot water.
As you can see, making your own natural skin care products is not that hard. Moreover, these recipes can also save you some money.
When looking for essential oils and such, make sure to look into more than just the basic products. For example, you can add CBD oil to some of these recipes if you have certain problems such as insomnia, restless sleep, stress, and various degrees of pain.
Given the fact that, when it comes to oils, you can add what you want to your natural skin care products, it is better if you choose the ones that come with advantages that count for you.
