Discover how to make your own simple DIY beauty products. There are plenty of reasons to make your own beauty products from stuff you either already have in your home or from things you can pick up at the grocery store or farmers market. It’s better for you, the environment and your wallet!
We’ve all been hearing about the dangers of nasty chemicals in our beauty and personal products. There are all kinds of really disturbing ingredients in those store bought cosmetic and beauty products, stuff like: phthalates, which have been called a “global threat” by the World Health Organization; parabens, a preservative to extend shelf life that mimics estrogen when absorbed by the body and has been linked to all sorts of health issues; propylene alcohol, which is a common skin irritant but is still found in many beauty products anyway; and keratin, which actually is made from animal by-products that come from the unsustainable factory farming system.
And of course, there’s the issue of animal experimentation and animal-sourced ingredients. It can be difficult to find products that have not been tested on animals and do not include animal products in the ingredients for those who want to choose cruelty-free.
That’s not to mention the incredible cost of store-bought beauty products. Many of these products tout outlandish claims and can cost as much as your entire food budget for the week! It’s enough to make a girl turn to making her own beauty care products, and that’s just why we’ve put together this list of DIY beauty tutorials.
