Making makeup at home!

In the modern world, the concept of naturalness is greatly distorted, since cosmetics manufacturers under the concept of “naturalness” often display only the absence of dyes, while other chemical compounds remain unchanged and have a detrimental effect on the body. That is why, when talking about vitamins, we rarely mean getting them from cosmetics. Let’s break the stereotypes!

We have collected for you a whole arsenal of cosmetics, the ingredients for which you can easily find in your kitchen or in the nearest store, and the effect of such cosmetics will many times surpass any expensive drug.

Nourishing lotion

In addition, by occupation, people are tense, which responds with the appearance of facial wrinkles. This is due to the lack of moisture in the body. Replenishing all this is very simple! Digging through folk recipes, we found a lotion made from aloe, grapes and green tea.

You need to cut 1 medium aloe leaf into slices, place them in a blender and grind until juice is formed. Then strain the aloe juice. 3-4 pitted grapes, put the berries in a blender, chop until gruel. Next, mix aloe juice, grape pulp and 1 tbsp. green tea. Wash your face with this mixture morning and evening!

In this recipe, there are no restrictions on the volume and ratio of products. Mix the ingredients by eye so that a fairly thick mixture is obtained. It should be applied to the face in the evening, rub it with massage movements, and then rinse with cool water.

Decorative cosmetics

The recipe is extremely simple. You need to grind activated charcoal in a mortar or other container. Then add aloe juice and mix again. Mascara is ready! After applying to the eyelashes, you need to give the mascara a couple of seconds to dry, and then the effect will be exactly like from a store-bought mascara. For a thicker consistency, you can add a little coconut oil to the mixture. Then the mascara will turn out not only decorative, but also truly medicinal!

Beeswax can often be found at harvest fairs or bee products store. In a separate bowl, heat 100 ml of olive oil and mix it with 1 tbsp. jojoba oils. Add 1 tbsp to the resulting mixture. alkane root powder. It is this ingredient that is responsible for the color of the future lipstick. So you can choose the saturation of the hue yourself! A mixture of oils and alkane root powder is filtered through gauze folded in several layers. Melted wax is added, and the whole mixture is thoroughly heated in a water bath. Then, 10 drops of essential rose oil are added to the mixture removed from the fire and slightly cooled, which will not only give a pleasant aroma to the lipstick, but also make it nourishing and moisturizing.
