Homemade beauty products...

I'm interested in trying some homemade body scrubs and masks. Does anyone have any simple recipes? Or maybe for anything other than scrubs and masks?

  • I use extra virgin organic coconut oil as a moisturizer it works great, no recipe just use it right out of the jar =) I'm trying to look up a good oatmeal scrub recipe online, but haven't found anything I like yet.

  • NO!! whatever you do do NOT use food coloring!! i did it and my skin was red for a week!!! as for homemade scrubs... one part honey, one part sugar, and one part body wash. it exfoliates and helps with dry skin plus, it smells yummy!!!

  • dear vadasmom...if you put food coloring in your homemade products it will stain your skin that color. you gotta be careful with un-natural dyes.
