Ingredient Spotlight: Pumpkin Seed Oil + DIY SERUM

Here we go again-another post about pumpkins.  With fall well underway, you are inundated with recipes and recommendations all centered around pumpkins, am I right?!  In fact, even I-who has sworn off high acid coffee, found myself in line at Starbucks last week ordering a pumpkin spice latte!  Insert 12 eye roll emojis.  Tis the season.  Anyway, if you haven't had enough pumpkin talk go HERE for my pumpkin recipe round up and read on to learn more about how pumpkin seed oil can greatly enhance … [Read more...]

DIY Aloe Cucumber Toner with Chlorophyll!

I talked HERE about the insane benefits of adding chlorophyll to your water.  Well, while I was doing research on chlorophyll, I read that it is even beneficial to use it topically as well as internally.  The problem is that it's very green!  I got the idea to add it to a toner mainly to tint the toner.  Lately, I'm all about making unique products that are naturally pretty-like THIS hibiscus toner that is pink!   I say that to say, I'm not really boasting the topical benefits of chlorophyll … [Read more...]

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...]

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...]
