Skincare products are everywhere— from the drugstore to social media, there’s no shortage of options when it comes to taking care of your face.
But there are a few things you might not know:
-Most skincare products contain chemicals and other ingredients that can do more harm than good. The FDA doesn’t regulate skincare like they do food or drugs, so there’s no way to know what’s in your favorite moisturizer or serum. And even if it’s “all natural,” that doesn’t mean it’s safe!
-It’s expensive! Though some brands offer affordable prices, most of them cost an arm and a leg—and sometimes two arms and two legs!
So what are you supposed to do? There are plenty of ways to take care of your skin without breaking the bank—and without exposing yourself to harmful chemicals. Instead of spending money on fancy skincare products, try making some homemade skincare products with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
Here are some simple Homemade Skincare to make sure your skin is glowing and healthy:
1. Coconut oil and Honey Moisturizer
Coconut oil has antibacterial properties, which helps fight off acne and other blemishes. Honey is an excellent humectant—it attracts moisture from the air and holds it close to your skin, keeping it hydrated.
Mix equal parts coconut oil and honey together until they form a smooth paste. Apply this mixture as often as needed to keep your skin soft and supple!
2. Baking soda face wash
Baking soda is the ultimate clarifying agent, it removes excess dirt and oil from your face without leaving behind any residue or buildup like other cleansers tend to do over time (like bar soap tends to do). Just mix a tablespoon of baking soda into your favorite facial cleanser (or even just water!), then use.
3. Honey and lemon mask
This is one of my favorite masks because it’s so simple to make and works on any skin type! Mix two tablespoons of honey with one tablespoon of lemon juice until they’re blended together into a paste. Apply the paste to clean skin and leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing off with warm water—your face will feel super smooth afterwards!
4. Oatmeal face mask
Mix 1 tablespoon each of oatmeal and yoghurt in a bowl until they form a paste. Apply this mixture on your face and leave it on for 10 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
This mask helps keep your skin clean by exfoliating dead skin cells and moisturizing dry areas like your cheeks or forehead! If you have dry skin, add more yogurt or if you have oily skin add more oatmeal!
5. Homemade Lip Scrub
Make your own lip scrub by combining cocoa powder and honey in equal parts, then adding some cinnamon for extra flavor if desired. Apply this mixture directly onto your lips and scrub gently for about 2 minutes until you feel it getting gritty. Rinse off with warm water and apply lip balm afterward (this will help lock in moisture).
6. Lemon juice face wash
Lemons are an excellent cleansing agent—they help remove dirt, oil, and makeup from your face. All you need is 1/2 cup lemon juice mixed with 1/2 cup of water and 1 teaspoon of sugar or honey. You can also add in some rosemary or mint if you want something with more scent!
This mixture works great on dry or oily skin types alike because it doesn’t contain any harsh ingredients.
7. Coconut oil skin exfoliator
Coconut oil is a great all-around moisturizer because it locks in moisture without being too heavy or oily (and it smells amazing!). Mix coconut oil with baking soda until it has the texture of wet sand; then massage onto dry skin using circular motions before rinsing off with warm water. This will help remove dead skin cells from your face, leaving it smooth and soft!
8. Milk Lotion
Milk has anti-inflammatory properties that can help calm redness caused by acne breakouts. To make milk lotion, add one cup of milk to one tablespoon of honey and mix well until smooth. Apply directly on face with cotton swabs or washcloth and leave on overnight before rinsing off in the morning!
9. Aloe Vera gel
Aloe Vera gel is great for helping your skin heal from sunburns, bug bites and other injuries. You can use it as a moisturizer or even as an exfoliant by mixing it with sugar or salt.
If you have sensitive skin, use 1 teaspoon of aloe vera gel and mix it with 1 tablespoon of water until it forms a paste. Apply this mixture directly on your face and leave it on for 10 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
10. Rose Water
Rose Water has been used for centuries as an anti-aging treatment because it moisturizes the skin and helps reduce wrinkles by keeping the skin hydrated throughout the day.
To make rose water at home all you need is 2 cups of distilled water and 5-6 drops of rose essential oil (or rose essence) in a spray bottle, then shake well before using this spray on your face every morning before applying makeup or after washing your face at night before going to bed.
So there you have it! These are some of the products that we think are worth making at home. All of these recipes are simple to make and don’t require a lot of ingredients or special tools. They’re also made with natural ingredients that are good for your skin, so there’s no need to worry about allergic reactions or irritation.
It’s important to remember that just because we’ve listed these products, they don’t necessarily work for everyone. In fact, some of them might not even work for you! That’s why we’re so excited to see what works for you and what doesn’t—if you try one of these recipes out and find that it doesn’t help your skin at all, let us know in the comments below!
