Fast Absorbing Body Butter w/ Hibiscus

Summer is here and I don't know about you but I'm in need of some serious moisture!  Winter has left my skin ashy and dull so after finding out mango butter and sesame oil are fast absorbing, it made me think about how great it would be to make an effective body moisturizer that would actually soak in rather then setting on top of the skin.  I decided to make a body butter rather then a body cream in order to make the most effective product.  Since creams contain about 80% water, a body butter … [Read more...]

DIY Blood Orange Hibiscus Face Mist

I've been on a big roll lately creating new DIYs!  Some flop, but some I end up really loving and this face mist is one of them that I like!  I've jumped out of the box and am using different ingredients and this toner is no exception!  Not to mention, it's pink!  And that pretty pink hue is from all-natural, skin loving hibiscus!  With a mix of blood orange hydrosol and lemon witch hazel, we've got ourselves a skin brightening spritzer your skin will love! Blood Orange Hydrosol has been … [Read more...]

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...]

Hyaluronic Pumpkin Serum DIY

A new hyaluronic acid post has been a long time coming.  My first HA recipe HERE has been my most viewed post since I published it but I haven't played with the ingredient since.  I've been wanting to explore botanical extracts as well but since most of those need to be in a water based solution, I had put them on the back burner.  Then it dawned on me-a 1% hyaluronic solution would be the perfect base for extracts and I've been experimenting ever since!  Plus, it's fall and PUMPKIN IS IN.  What … [Read more...]

Rejuvenating PURE Facial Oil

I want to talk a bit today about facial oils.  Many of you go nuts over a cream/moisturizer recipe-I get it.  Creams contain water which acts as a vehicle to transport the oil into the pores-does that make any sense?  Basically, when you add water to oil and emulsify it into a cream, you get a moisturizer that absorbs almost immediately.  Plus, who doesn't love a fluffy white, luxurious cream to slather on your skin?! Well, you might be wondering what my point is-My point is that creams are … [Read more...]

Essential Oil Roll-On for Blemished Skin

Having irritated, blemished skin can be so frustrated.  Despite being in the skin care business, I have always battled my skin.  You name the skin issue, and I've probably had it.  I've tried everything you can think of in the pursuit of beautiful skin.   Seriously, giving people facials while I had ugly skin was mortifying.   I worked in spas and had just about every skin treatment at my fingertips.  My poor skin was so over processed.  I'm not going to claim that I've  found a magic potion … [Read more...]
