Make Your Own Natural Beauty Products

Are you looking for creative ways to improve your daily beauty regimen? Maybe try to save a little money in the process? Making the natural beauty products yourself may be just the solution for you. I know I am constantly looking for ways to replace my common household products with healthier, natural options. Learning to do this has helped me so much. The satisfaction of making something yourself is wonderful. Plus you never need to worry about any hidden or questionable ingredients, you know exactly what's inside.

Making your own products and do it yourself projects are becoming very popular nowadays, especially due to our struggling economy. If you want to cut back spending on many of the products you are already using, but don't want to give them up, this may right up your alley.

I decided to give you just one example from each general beauty care category to give you an idea how easy it really is. These categories include hair, skin, makeup, perfume, and hygiene. I hope you have fun with them and get inspired as I have. Remember, making them yourself makes you the creator so have fun, experiment, and customize them the way you like!

Make your own:

Dry Shampoo. Dry shampoos are great for a quick fix. Has it been a couple days since you shampooed and your hair's getting a little too oily? This simple recipe will have that oil absorbed right up and you get through the rest of your day when there's no time to shower. Choose one of the following powder substances; cornstarch, baking soda, or ground oats. (Note: If you have darker hair and find these options too light you may want to try carob or cocoa powder.) Sprinkle one to two tablespoons onto the roots of your oily hair. Scrunch and run the powder though your hair and brush out. If you'd like to add a little fragrance feel free to add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil to the powder and you're set!

Green Tea Facial Toner. The benefits of green tea go beyond just medicinal. Their antioxidants are great for your skin as well, especially in the morning to reduce any puffiness. Brew your tea and set aside a small amount to cool. When cool immediately dab on your face with a cotton ball as you would a toner. Let dry and finish with your normal moisturizer.

All Natural Lip-Gloss. This one I really like, especially since gloss lasts so long and a little goes a long way. You'll save a bundle here and it's so nurturing for your lips! Combine 1 teaspoon fresh aloe vera gel, 1/2 teaspoon coconut oil, and 1/8 teaspoon vitamin E oil. Store in clean container. To customize you can add in any oils you especially love and for a little color, heat up a small amount of lipstick you have and mix in extra pigment.

Refreshing Body Spray. Sprits this combo on and feel uplifted while you smell great too. Combine in spray bottle: 1 tablespoon witch hazel, 2 teaspoons essential oil fragrance of your choice ( I love citrus but you can choose your own or combine.), and 1 cup water. Shake well and spray all over body.

Natural Deodorant. This recipe is effective and very cheap to make! Mix 1/4 cup arrowroot powder or cornstarch and 1/4 cup baking soda. Slowly add 5-6 tablespoons coconut oil and work it in until you have the desired consistency. This should closely resemble the texture of store bought deodorant. Store in small container and apply a small amount with fingers. No need to wash off your hands, just rub in like a lotion and you're good to go! If you use this everyday it will last you around 3 months. Adding a couple drops of lavender also proves effective and it will smell great too.

The great thing with trying different recipes is you can try as many as you want, and customize them to make them just how you want. It becomes a product designed just for you and when you find something that works and you love, you'll end up using it for life. Enjoy!
