What to do When You Can’t Use Drugstore Hair & Beauty Products

What is the solution for this kind of crisis???

It’s simple, make your own products! Imagine knowing EXACTLY what you’re putting on your skin and in your hair, using ingredients from your fridge, garden or kitchen cabinets.

Ingredients like fruit pulp or fruit juice provide natural antioxidants and toning benefits.  Honey is known as the world’s oldest moisturizer and has antiseptic properties. Milk (goat’s milk in particular) provides relief of skin irritation and inflammation like acne, eczema and psoriasis.



For an extra boost, ingredients such as oatmeal, wheat germ, brown sugar, and dried herbs can also be included for more specialized concoctions to treat acne-prone, flaking, and/or oily skin.

Making your own products not only saves you money, the natural ingredients reduce the chances of allergic reactions or skin irritations (make sure you’re not allergic to your ingredients).

NOTE: Remember that if you don’t use a preservative of any type (essentials oils would work), your concoctions will require refrigeration and should only be kept for a week. You can err on the side of caution and mix in small batches for immediate use.
