DIY Organic Beauty: Jo's Favourites To Try
Have you tried making your own organic beauty recipes yet? It’s Organic Beauty Week this week so now’s certainly a good time to give it a go.
I’m always trying out new homemade scrubs, creams and more so the team asked me to round-up my favourite ones for every skin type. The best thing about every one of these (in fact, every beauty remedy I make) is that they are completely natural – no nasty chemicals, just lots of good-for-you stuff. And, if you have a look in your cupboards at home, you’ve probably already got what you need to make some of these. Here they are…
For normal to sensitive skin:
Cucumber Cooling Cream
Super-soothing, this easy-to-make cream’s great for every skin type, but especially good for sensitive skin. I made it with aloe vera – known for its natural antioxidant and healing properties. Get the recipe here.
For normal to dry skin:
Lavender & Coconut Bath Salt
I love using this one as the seasons change and the nights draw in. (It’s the perfect excuse for a long, soothing soak in the bath!). The lavender in this recipe will really help you drift off, too. Get the recipe here.
For oily-combination skin:
Honey & Lemon Green Tea Face Wash
Like aloe vera, green tea is also loaded with natural antioxidants – and works just as well n beauty recipes as it does in a cup!
The sugar in this face wash means it’s a natural, yet gentle, exfoliator. Honey moisturises your skin, while the green tea can help reduce any redness, too. Get the recipe here.
