DIY Antioxidant Additive….Add a Kick to Your Skin Care Routine!

Back in my facial days I used Dermalogica.  Speaking of green washing.....  Anyway-that's another post but while under the disguise of being natural, they had some really creative products that I enjoyed using in my treatments.  One that I clearly remember were their additives.  They came in these small (1 ounce) tin bottles and had somewhat of an oily consistency.   They were used by adding them into other products.  They smelled heavenly and I always added them into the mask and sometimes into … [Read more...]

DIY After-Shave Spray

Yesterday I made a beard serum that has multiple uses.  Today I'm making an after shave spray-again with multiple uses!  The man in your life really does need to use some type of product that will calm and heal the skin after shaving.  In fact, I admitted a few posts back that I even shave my face and this spray is perfect for closing pores as well as protecting the skin from sensitivities after shaving.  This spray is also calming for after waxing as well as a nourishing and calming facial … [Read more...]

DIY Kaolin Clay & Aloe Mask with Vitamin C…

Let me tell you-way too much thought and experimenting has gone into this post!  First I was trying to re-make Proactiv's Refining Mask-I'm sure many of you are familiar with the sulfur smelling, creamy clay mask?  Well, the problem with re-doing that mask is the sulfur.  I could not find a legit source for it.  I found that eggs contain a good amount of sulfur so I originally created a mask with an egg and a scoop of kaolin clay.  I'm concerned that the skin will not reap the benefits of sulfur … [Read more...]

Aloe Vera Toner with Juniper Berry

I've concocted a new toner recipe that I think you're gonna like!  I had run out of THIS toner and had just applied THIS mask.  My skin needed something soothing as well as balancing so it was time to make something to fit my skin's current needs.  I've been using this new toner for over a week and love how it is not only acting as a skin balancing spray, it is also calming and hydrating my skin in the process. Typical DIY toners contain witch hazel or apple cider vinegar.  Their main job is … [Read more...]

The EASIEST Lotion Recipe Anyone Can Make!!

Many of you have asked me if you can ditch the emulsifying wax in my other DIY cream recipes and use beeswax instead.  With quite the know-it-all stance, I quickly assured you that beeswax would not properly bind oil and water.  I had tried this method in my early days of experimenting with DIYs and created the most greasy, non-cohesive "cream".  It was super gross and I reluctantly had to throw away a lot of wasted ingredients. I don't know what got into me this morning but I decided to give … [Read more...]

The Amazing Aloe Vera Gel

With summer in full swing, my skin care cabinet would not be complete without my bottle of Mountain Rose Herb's Aloe Vera Gel.  I use this big bottle for everything from sunburns to treating IBS discomfort!   Did you know that aloe is fabulous for acne and anti aging? Aloe vera gel contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. Giberellin in aloe vera acts as a growth hormone stimulating … [Read more...]
