DIY: Homemade Beauty Products

We know how much you all love DIY posts, so we’ve got another one for you! This one is centered around cosmetics and skin care that you can make at home. After diamonds, cosmetics and skin care products are definitely a girl’s best friend. By using some simple tips for creating great homemade beauty products, you can have consistent, glowing skin.

More often than not, commercial beauty products do more harm than good. Far from the image projected, commercial brand skin care lines use synthetic and unnatural materials to create their products—products we use on a regular basis.

Commercially produced cosmetics invariably incorporate elements like petroleum byproducts. These kinds of ingredients are harsh and can quickly clog skin pores, preventing healthy skin from breathing and staying fresh. Natural cosmetics are the healthiest option for your beautiful body. Tend to your body like the temple it is and treat it with care through homemade beauty products.

Here are some lovely handcrafted alternatives to regular everyday beauty products.

Natural Body Scrub

Natural Body Scrub Handmade cosmetics are incredibly inexpensive, but most of their major ingredients required are found right in your pantry. All you need is a base or scrubbing agent—sugar, ground coffee, salt, or Epsom salts are great examples. Add a carrier oil like almond, canola, or avocado, and a dash of color found in herbs like lavender and rosemary. Spices like nutmeg or cinnamon also make excellent additions. The herbs and spices can give a great aromatherapy effect while you scrub away dead skin.

Facial Mask

Homemade facial mask Honey, milk, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, and turmeric are basic ingredients needed to make a quick and effective face mask. The simplest combination is the honey and cinnamon face mask. All you need to do is mix the two components together, apply onto your face, and let rest for about 15 minutes.

Face Cleanser

Face cleanser A combination of olive oil, honey, and cider vinegar makes a delightful face cleanser. Simply apply the mixture onto your face and rinse with warm water after 15 minutes. Or, try a blended yogurt and cucumber facial cleanser. Apply the mixture over your face and rinse in five minutes for glowing skin.

Lip Gloss

Homemade Lip Gloss Create your own lip balm by melting beeswax and coconut oil together. Add a few drops of Vitamin E oil and your choice of essential oil and leave it to cool. Voila! You’ve made your own personalized nourishing lip gloss to keep your kisser soft. Store it in a sample jar or other small airtight container.

Shampoo

Homemade Shampoo Soak Chamomile tea bags in hot water for 10 minutes and mix about 4 tablespoons of grated soap flakes and 1½ tablespoons glycerin to it. Let it rest for a few hours, and then pour it into a bottle for use. You can add an essential oil of your choice to the shampoo for a relaxing feeling.

 

Accessories Can Make or Break a Look

You may dress well, but the look is incomplete without the right accessories. We can loosely define a fashion accessory as a secondary item that contributes to a wearer’s outfit. An accessory can be a purse, jewelry, gloves, shoes, jackets, boots, suspenders-the list is endless. In fact, anything other than your clothes is an accessory.

Fashion accessories for all seasons

Fashion accessories are just as important as the clothes. Some of the fashion accessories that are in style all year round are sunglasses, jewelry, and handbags. Even in the Summer, when the sun is hot and shining, you can look your fashionable best. Oversized sunglasses are the latest trend. Find what shape suits you best and match the color with your outfit. Wayfarers, aviators, cat eye, and many more styles are up for grabs.

Jewelry, nowadays, is no longer a female-dominated domain. Of course, women have always obsessed about jewelry, but designers today are designing jewelry exclusively for men. With stars like Johnny Depp walking out in jeweled finery, it is the latest trend to take the world by storm. Rings, cuffs, cuff links, tie bars, bracelets, and chains are in. There is a slight risk of overdoing it with jewelry, but do what suits you and whatever you are comfortable with. Do not follow trends blindly.

When it comes to accessories, scarves can be an inexpensive way to make any outfit complete. Even for men, scarves are a necessity for every season. During the summer, a nice silk scarf can help protect your skin from the sun while keeping you cool when a breeze passes by. In the winter, a great knit scarf can add pizzazz to your outfit while keeping the chill off your neck.

Handbags, including a range of man purses or messenger bags, are the most important yet practical accessory these days. The range, color, and designs vary as per the occasion and you can never fail with a classic style.

hat Another emerging trend is hats. Now this is where the trend does a 360. Instead of men, it’s women who are into hats. The trend snowballed into full-fledged fashion starting with Prince Williams’ wedding. No one could have predicted then that this would be back in vogue in such a big way.

Choosing the right accessories

A look is incomplete without the right accessories. An individual’s style reflects in the way they accessorize. In fact, the right accessories can restyle an old repeat outfit, make an inexpensive garment look expensive, give you a new style, and make you look completely different.

Just like the garment one wears, the accessory can change the entire look. They can draw attention to or away from any part of the body. Accessories can lengthen or shorten your height. An accessory can make you look elegant or boho chic and contribute to your personality, be it a handbag, earrings, belt, tie, muffler, shoe or leg warmers. It can basically add a finishing touch to your overall look.
