DIY: Make your own Beauty & Anti-Aging Products




The rage these days is to create your own beauty products right from home to help everything from acne to wrinkles. 

Whether you are buying the ingredients online (see below) or using what you have in your fridge, it doesn't matter, this is an excellent way to go! Not only is it relatively inexpensive, but also you aren't contributing as much to a consumer society.
 If you look at any of your cleansers, moisturizers, or anti-aging creams, possibly you may find ingredients in them that are already in your fridge. You may even find a few ingredients in these store-bought creams that you can't pronounce, or ones that aren't suited for your skin type. Wouldn't it be nice to customize your own beauty products? Leave out the harmful ingredients and put in the ones that your skin loves. And spend a lot less while you're at it.

Another advantage is that you can make small batches, so you're always using a fresh product for maximum effects.

It's time to get back to a simpler time and to trust in nature, and yourself.
I'm a proponent and user of DIY skincare and I can promise you that it's easy and it's fun!
