I did , a year ago I choose to bin it all the factory made face skincare products .
The best move ever!
I had a face skin problems for ages...well that's what I thought :)
For the past eight years I hated my sensitive and dry face .
Always reddish , with a spots , some days even itchy and painful.
Only I know how many different creams , make up removals , tonics I tried...
I am now confident to say " It's all rubbish! "
Please have a look at this infographic of toxic ingredients in skin care products < http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-5971/12-Toxic-Ingredients-to-AVOID-in-Cosmetics-Skin-Care-Products-Infographic.html >
That rubbish was the reason of my skin trouble ... But hey , it's gone :)
It's gone for good .
Now making my own mixtures of natural ingredients and my face never been better!
I am happy to share some of them with you to try, if they work a miracle for me they might work for you too :)
The first and essential would be my ultimate Camomile tea face toner .
With a bought ingredients it's taking about 10 minutes to make , with no fuss :)
To make one you will need :
Frankincense pure essential oil
Rose Geranium essential oil
Lavender essential oil
250 ml plastic bottle
Yes, I use ordinary Tesco Camomile tea bags :)
The essential oils are from FRESHSKIN.
10 ml bottles , after a year I used not even 1/4 of the amount :)
Make a camomile tea :)
Cover and leave to infuse for 5-7 minutes...Or even leave it till cold if not in rush , I did forget my tea many times . Stronger is better ;)
Add essential oils.
For my 250 ml bottle I use 3 drops of each oil.
Shake it ;)
If you did follow this recipe then you just created the absolutely amazing , natural and inexpensive homemade product with anti ageing properties and lovely smell :)
Without fancy packaging and labels nature works best!
I use my toner whenever I feel of need to refresh my face, that would be morning , midday and evening.
To remove my eye make up I use mixture of three oils -virgin olive oil, sweet almond oil and castor oil.
So much better than ready removals, trust me.
To moisture my face I use pure coconut oil and argan oil - great for the wrinkles ;)
To finish this post with the complete honesty I give you my face , photographed this morning with absolute no make up , without any digital retouches . Happy 34 years old face :)
Remember " If you can't eat it , don't put it on your skin"
Go green , it's easier then you think!
