If you are skin conscious and more of a “make-up girl,” you already know that cosmetics and makeups are costly; and toxic to the skin. This is where homemade cosmetics come in. They are natural, non-toxic, and above all the cheapest out there. We have got some tips for you to help you make your own face powder. Simple, convenient, and cheap.
Should you have known these tips before, you must have started making your own homemade face powder way earlier. Read on for these simple tips to make your own face powder at home:
Use Corn Starch
You must be wondering why on earth should I put corn starch on my face? Well, by putting commercial cosmetics on your face, you are constantly exposing your face to toxic chemicals. Stats show that 60% of commercial cosmetics are carcinogenic which badly damages the skin. On the other hand, corn starch is a natural and non-toxic ingredient that helps in keeping your face glowing.
The toxic skincare items have other side effects like skin aging, scars, ringworm, and other skin infections. On the other hand, Corn Starch is 100% natural and has no side effects. Above all, it is the cheapest – if does cost at all.
Arrowroot powder is another natural ingredient to use as an alternative to store-bought powder. Unlike corn starch, arrowroot powders are thicker and do not stick in your face. It blends with your skin.
Just like corn starch, it is cheap, effective, and has no side effects. It is pertinent to mention here that arrowroot powder best works while you expose your face to the sun. So, it is a worthwhile idea to try on arrowroot powder on a sunny day.
Adding Almond Oil and Glycerine Will Take it to the Next Level
One of the annoying things about face powders is that they stick to the tiny little face hairs and eyelashes when you put the powder on your eyelids. That is where essential oils like almond oil come in. You can gently rub a few drops of almond oil on your eyelashes and the powder will disappear. The same goes for the tiny little hairs on your face.
Likewise, gently rubbing a few drops of glycerine will wash away the scratches and scars from your face.
Make use of these homemade powders that are non-toxic, efficient, and have no side effects. These natural ingredients will best serve you as potential alternatives to commercial cosmetics that are toxic to your skin. These natural ingredients and homemade face powders will help you in sustaining glowing skin as you grow old.
