What say you ladies?
I realise that in many ways, many niche or indie skincare brands were born in someone’s kitchen. Most of the time, it was to fill a need or to find a way to get around commercial products. Perhaps it is because they are sensitive to certain ingredients, or it might be that they want to try a natural homemade alternative which they know will be free of chemicals and preservatives.
I’m curious though. Are you into making your own skincare?
The most adventurous I got probably, was with the apple cider vinegar toner. I used to make up batches every couple of weeks but after a while, I just got tired of it. I was also using the aspirin mask for a spell but that soon palled too. Using Extra Virgin Olive Oil on my skin broke me out so badly I’m not even going near it… except for cooking and for dipping bread into. The last time I cooked anything up in my kitchen for skincare purposes, it was the L’Occitane Ma Creme… which really can’t be counted :P
Otherwise, I prefer just purchasing my skincare ready made, because I don’t have much faith in being as clinical at home as I should be when messing around with things like skincare which need to be able to keep, and because most homemade remedies tend to get messy. But that’s me :)
Your say: Are you into DIY Homemade Skincare? Do you have a reason why?
