You don’t know this about me but I almost started my own Etsy shop for skincare. I honestly took a good month out of my life and dedicated some time to producing products which were not only useful but also sustainable. Unfortunately, it was a lot more difficult than I anticipated and I had to stop my venture in starting a natural skincare shop on my own, but I learned a lot about skincare in that short period of time and I wanted to share a few DIY products you can make at home.
So, first off – exfoliating is an amazing thing and the right exfoliator can truly make your skin feel fresh and soft in a matter of minutes. My favorite exfoliator is two ingredients:
- Sea Salt
- Olive Oil
This is the perfect combination to provide smooth, silky skin.
A toner is another excellent way to remove impurities and balance skin. I found that mixing two simple ingredients made the best toner I’ve ever used!
- Witch Hazel
- Tea Tree Oil
- Essential Oil Of Your Choice [for topical use, optional]
This product made my skin feel so clean and refreshed, and I urge you to try it. You could also put this in a spray bottle and use it as a setting spray.
For a mask, you really want something hydrating as well as something that will depuff and I found one that truly does both of those things, and this one only has three lovely, natural ingredients.
- Raw Honey
- Olive Oil
- Coffee Grounds
Honestly, this mask made my skin feel lovely and works well for any type of skin.
These three are wonderful and natural DIYs with ingredients you most likely already have.
I do not have exact measurements for these recipes because at the time I was using them I was simply experimenting and did not determine specific amounts needed. What I can suggest is putting even amounts of each product in, and that should do the trick!
I really hope you try these out and if you want more recipes that worked for me, leave me a comment because I actually have many others I can share as well!
