I have a mission – to reach 100 people over the next 3 months and help them make a small step (s) towards living a healthier and more eco-friendly life. We all need to make positive shifts to our lives to help ourselves and the Earth. Please share this post (there is also a sign up link to the email list here) to spread this message far & wide. Today I’m focusing on healthy skin care.
Everything that is put on the skin is absorbed into EVERY CELL in the body. When did you last check the ingredients in your skin care products? Could you recreate them at home? Would you eat them? The answer to all 3 is probably never, no & no. If we are focusing on healthy eating for a healthy body we also need to focus on healthy skin care too. Non-toxic skin care products are a must.
It’s so easy to make your own products, and therefore know what you are putting on & in your body. Witch Hazel water & grapeseed or sweet almond oil are the two key ingredients that it’s worth having at home. With these two (and some essential oils if you have them) you can make:
1. Eye make up remover
2. Body moisturising oil
3. Cleanser & Toner
4. Body Spray
1. Make Up Remover – Mix 50:50 witch hazel water with the oil of your choice in an amber, glass, pipette bottle. Shake well. Squirt a couple of drops on a soft muslin cloth and remove your eye make up.
2. Body Moisturiser – just pop either grapeseed oil or sweet almond oil in a glass bottle and add a few drops of essential oil (my favourites are bergamot or sweet orange). Shake. Massage your skin with this blend when you are still damp after a shower.
3. Cleanser & Toner in One – Witch Hazel water is a fabulous toner & cleanser. Some of its healing properties include helping reduce inflammation associated with rosacea, acne, eczema or psoriasis. It’s also great at calming sun burn. It can also help protect against skin damage.
4. Body Spray – Add 1 tbsp witch hazel water in an 8oz spray bottle. Add 30 drops of essential oil of your choice. Top up with water. Shake before spritzing your body.
Both oil & witch hazel water can be purchased from The Natural Dispensary and you are welcome to use my discount code CMW5. Any problems let me know & I’ll send you a link.
I’d love to know if you make your own skin care products already or what you think of these ideas if you get to try them.
Please share this FREE mission with friends and loved ones. I’d love to keep the momentum growing, reaching the ripple effect of this group further and wider. You can also sign up to get emails direct to your inbox following this link HERE. Thank you for being a part of this x
