There was a time when I bought all of my beauty products at department stores. I assumed the bigger price tag meant better quality ingredients. Boy, was I wrong.
On my journey to live more naturally, I’ve discovered that both department stores and corner drugstores are filled with beauty and personal care products that are loaded with chemicals, artificial junk, preservatives, and worst of all, possible carcinogens. Check out the safety of your beauty care products on the Environmental Working Group (EWG)’s Skin Deep database.
Now I make my own beauty and personal care products, and you can too. I’ve rounded up the BEST 100+ DIY recipes for make-up, moisturizers, body scrubs, lip balms, sunscreens and much more. I’ve even got a fun section for (ahem) natural sensual products.
When you make your own beauty and personal care products, you know EXACTLY what goes into everything you make. No more chemicals. No more junk. And you’ll save money too!
