How to make your own DIY beauty products at home.


Looking to save a little money on beauty products or just want to know what’s really in those store-bought items? You can make your own DIY beauty products at home with just a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen. Not only will you save money, but you can customize these recipes to suit your own individual skin type and scent preferences. So let’s get started!


One of the simplest DIY beauty products is sugar scrub. Sugar scrubs are great for sloughing off dead skin cells and leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth. All you need is some sugar, oil (olive oil, coconut oil, etc.), and an essential oil of your choice. Mix together equal parts sugar and oil, then add a few drops of essential oil until it smells good to you. Store in a jar with a tight fitting lid and use as needed.





Another easy homemade beauty product is lip balm. This is perfect for winter when the cold air dries out your lips or any time they could use a little TLC. Start by mixing together 2 tablespoons each of beeswax pellets and olive oil or another liquid carrier oil like sweet almond oil. Heat this mixture gently over a double boiler until the beeswax has melted, then remove from heat and stir in 10-15 drops of an essential oil like peppermint or lavender (optional). Pour into small containers (lip balm tubes work great) and let cool completely before using.





If you’re looking for something more intensive than sugar scrub or lip balm, try this homemade face mask recipe: start by mixing 1/4 cup oatmeal with enough water to form a thick paste, then stir in 2 tablespoons honey and 1 tablespoon plain yogurt. Apply to clean skin and let sit for 15 minutes before rinsing off with warm water. The oatmeal exfoliates while the honey soothes and moisturizes – it’s perfect for dry winter skin!


These are just a few ideas to get you started making your own DIY beauty products at home – there are endless possibilities! Have fun experimenting until you find recipes that work well for you and suit your individual needs.
