There’s such a large amount of beauty and body products available from such a large amount of brands that it can sometimes be a chore to sift through the options and find something that works well for you with the ingredients that you like. Wouldn’t it be easier if you could just make your own DIY versions of your favourite beauty products at home in your kitchen? Well now you can!
The DIY beauty tutorials below include products we all know and love, but they don’t contain any nasty chemicals or artificial ingredients. The DIY skincare, makeup and haircare products can all amazingly be made with ingredients in your fridge, store cupboard or medicine cabinet, making them cheaper than store bought versions and much better for your body too! In addition, the items made by following these tutorials would make great gifts!
This facemask is made with chamomile tea, coconut oil, essential oils and charcoal capsules. Many people have charcoal capsules already in their kitchen or medicine cabinet to help in a range of situations from digestive issues to accidental poisoning of animals and humans. In this DIY Beauty tutorial the charcoal is put to good use as it can absorb over 100 times its weight in oils, dirt and toxins, meaning it draws out impurities from the skin and leaves it amazingly fresh and clean.
At home hair removal can be costly and irritating as single-use supplies are needed and the wax can often contain chemicals and fragrances that irritate the skin. However, this wax is made from just three ingredients- white sugar, water and lemon juice. For this wax you don’t need any other equipment like spreading tools or strips in order to begin removing hair, just scoop out a ball of the wax, spread it on the skin and rip off to leave it smooth and hair-free. This DIY beauty product is cheap and easy but very effective!
This DIY pore strip tutorial is easy to follow and uses just unflavoured gelatine and milk, both of which you’re likely to already have in your kitchen at home. This strip is like a peel off mask in that it can be applied to the whole face and peeled away to leave brighter, smoother blackhead-free skin. This is a great beauty DIY that your skin will thank you for!
This DIY sunscreen tutorial uses easy kitchen ingredients as well as zinc oxide powder which produces the sun protection for your skin. This is a simple tutorial that will keep your skin soft and moisturised while you enjoy time in the sun, and you’ll be protected from harmful sun rays and burning.
This brilliant DIY sugar scrub is especially great for the feet and uses cheap and easy sugar as the main ingredient. The moisturising scrub is great for a range of uses such as removing hard skin from feet, softening dry elbows and exfoliating before shaving the legs.
This shampoo tutorial uses all natural ingredients so you can be sure it isn’t going to harm your scalp or hair. The shampoo is PH balanced unlike some shop bought and mass produced shampoos, which means its much closer to the natural PH of your scalp so won’t cause any adverse reactions. The ingredients of this DIY beauty product can also be bought organically too, which makes this a brilliant DIY tutorial.
If you like to use dry shampoo between hair washes but find it expensive then this is a great DIY tutorial for you.
