As you can see, I’ve been on a DIY beauty products kick. If you’re like me and you’re sick of high-priced, chemical-laden cosmetics & skin care, and you prefer the DIY satisfaction of concocting your own naturally fresh beauty potions, homemade beauty recipes are the way to go! Sometimes the beauty products I make at home are so the shit, that I feel like charging myself (and hence, paying myself—perhaps in cupcakes) for my awesomeness.
I recently discovered The Holistic Beauty Book on Amazon.com while doing a search for DIY beauty books, and I had to get my hands on a copy.
The recipes in the book are for the most part vegan (there are a few vegetarian ingredients peppered here and there) and are all-natural and eco-friendly. One thing I did notice is that a few of the ingredients are hard to come by (like Irish moss, raw linseeds and dried southernwood), especially if you’re a newb like I am when it comes to DIYing it up. Don’t worry, though, there are some simple beauty recipes for us novices as well (like the Essential Fatty Avo Mask and Oaty Goodness Cleanser).
This book is a fabulous resource for over 100 recipes including ones for lip balms, face creams, body butters, massage bars, bath melts, scrubs, cleansers, baby care products, moisturizers, facial toners, masks and packs, and more.
