We all have a favorite brand, whether that be for perfume, skin lotion, eye makeup, etc. Most of the time, these are brands that we’ve been infatuated with since a young age. We want something that can give us results, that's why we stick to the old-and-tested. However, sometimes it can be beneficial to broaden your horizons and look at something new, like While it's something new, you can find that it can give more consistent and clear results than your other products.
Can you say Maybelline or Love’s Baby Soft? Yet, what if you could say bye-bye to non-individualized products and hello to products that are fully you? Even better than that, ones that are completely made by you, too. Sounds pretty awesome, right? Well luckily, today is that day. We are helping you learn how to make your own favorite cleanser, toner and highlighting moisturizer. Hold on, breaking up with your go-to brands may be a little rocky.

Benefits of making your own skincare and makeup:

+Personalization: Don’t you want to be more than another barcode scanning? Making your own products lets you not only find out what suits you the best but lets you get more creative! You can find new scents or cleanser types that mesh well with your skin, giving you the best results possible. Who needs a facial specialist when you already have perfected the art of a personalized skin routine?
+Knowledge: It’s always good to know what is inside your products, and while you can label read into the next century, the best way of knowing is through control. That would benefit #2: physically seeing and adjusting what goes into your products and knowing what it is you’re putting on your body.
+Experimental: It’s fun! Loosen up and see where your creative side can take you. If you want to try out a Rose Absolute Hydrating Spray that you pinned last night, go for it! No matter what, you will expand your scope of expertise through trial and error.
+Eco-Friendly: By making your own products, you’ll be saving the planet even minimally by reducing consumption! So, go you! Now off to the best part, the recipes to get you started! Here are three staple products in any skincare routine and the base ingredients you’ll need to make the magic happen:

Oh, Honey Cleanser:

Time to get squeaky clean! Here’s the base recipe for your cleanser – feel free to personalize it with coconut oil or other natural additives for your skin needs!
+ Mix together about 1 teaspoon of honey, 1 teaspoon olive oil in a small jar. Shake to mix.
+Massage evenly over face.
+Leave on for 30 seconds
+Rinse and Dry!

“Tea Time” Toner:

As mentioned in a previous post, toners can be made exceptionally easy from essential oils! All you need is a favorite carrier oil and scented oils of choice.
Here’s a base recipe, feel free to let your personal creativity shine:
+Mix 20 Drops Essential Oil with 2 mL of Carrier Oil of choice.
Example: 10 drops tea tree oil, 10 drops grapefruit oil, and 2 mL sweet almond oil.

Highlighting Moisturizer:

Did someone say glow? Highlighting seems to be one of the major beauty trends that won’t slow down. To stay on top of the world’s hottest trend, here’s a DIY version of a beauty classic:
Mix in a small glass container the following:
+ You’ll need a base moisturizer, we suggest our Retinol Cream (Ultra Potent Vitamin A Cream) for skin benefits
+Old eyeshadows, the shimmery type
+ An eyeshadow tin Mix together the eyeshadow of your choice with the moisturizer in the tin until the consistency becomes matted and solid. It should mimic the look of a compact highlighter bought in a store.
