Homemade beauty products can make great gifts and are easy to make! They contain only natural ingredients and can suit all skin types. This post contains over 100 different DIY recipes to make your own skin and hair care products.
Homemade beauty products have many benefits. Not only are they fun to make but you are also saving the environment by using less plastic!
Making products yourself costs a fraction of what they would cost to buy in the shops. When you make your own products you also know exactly what you’ve put into them and what your skin is absorbing.
I’m a big fan of DIY beauty products and prefer to only use simple ingredients on my hair and skin. I’ve been testing out natural beauty products on my hair for many years and have written a book to help others create their own beauty products to suit their hair type.
Over the years I’ve collected my favourite DIY beauty recipes, as well as come up with my own. This post contains a list of recipes of all the personal care products I’ve made myself. The list includes both my own recipes and other people’s.
