It is really important to have inner and outer beauty. Using nontoxic organic beauty products should be a no-brainer by now, as we all know that what you put on is as important as what you put in. Today you can effectively swap out any conventionally produced, toxin-laden product for a safer version that looks and acts just like its synthetic loaded counter-part.

Yet, many still opt for simpler skincare and go homemade. While this is an easy and cost-effective route, there are certain products that need to be created, manufactured and packaged by professionals to provide the results and safety we all want and need. Whipping up an exfoliate or cleanser is do-able and even fun. Hair products and makeup are a completely different ballgame.

Market is full of some beautiful verities of product and also having numerous products which we can’t even see in our life. Better way is to make some products which are home made and also we are aware of the ingredients and they are easily available also. Here are some results which are presented in front of you as the end point and passed through various trials from our research centre. Remember, the companies have options of products but there is no option for our skin.

Top Three Beauty Products to Make Yourself

  • Face and Body Scrub
    You can make a wonderful scrub for face and body with just a few ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen cupboard. Sugar is an excellent exfoliant, just mix with olive or grape seed oil to your desired consistency and there you have it. Your skin will be fresh, glowing, and moisturized. Just remember to be gentle.
  • Facial Mask:
    Plain yogurt is another great exfoliate, and though not abrasive like sugar, is still pretty potent. Mix 1/4-cup yogurt with two tablespoons grape seed oil and a teaspoon of honey. Apply to skin and allow to dry somewhat, around 10 to 15 minutes. Rinse off with warm water. This plumps and firms the skin. Even my sensitive skin loves this treatment.
  • Grape seed oil cleanser
    Using oil as a cleanser may seem counter productive, but it works like a charm in dry winter months. Oil binds to dirt and makeup, cleansing the skin of impurities without stripping away moisture. Simply massage oil into skin and rinse with a warm wash cloth. You may follow with toner if you like.

Top Three Beauty Products Best Left to the Pros

  • Shampoo
    Creating a product yourself that is fit for cleansing the hair and leaving it soft and shiny is difficult at best. In my experience with homemade products, the one area I did not find pleasant or worthwhile was hair care.
  • Deodorant
    You actually can make your own deodorant using baking soda, alum or cornstarch. While some folks are happy with its effects, I find these to be irritating to skin and hard on clothing. Most nontoxic deodorant manufacturers carry an unscented product, if no scent is what you are after.
  • Make Up
    Obviously, producing your own mineral foundation and blush, mascara and eyeliner would require tools, materials, and skills beyond most of our means. But, there is nothing wrong with mixing a bit of pure mineral blusher with your favorite lip balm for a hit of color.

So, don’t be afraid to mix it up in the kitchen. A combination of professionally manufactured and homemade beauty products result in a well balanced beauty regimen.
