Your skin is the largest breathing organ, which means that you should know exactly what you are putting on it. Applying toxic chemicals like commercial beauty products or prescription creams/ointments can often result in acne, rashes, skin spots, dry skin, or wrinkles. These signs are the skin’s way of rejecting foreign toxins. Rather than just looking for the eco-friendly option, dive deeper and aim for cruelty-free, organic, and all-natural products. How do you find these? You make them.
A common misconception about skin care products is that organic and all-natural are interchangeable words. They are not. For your benefit, it is optimal to get something that is both organic and all-natural, simply because it means that you are providing your skin with the purest forms of the ingredients. We, however, want you to buy separate organic and all-natural ingredients so that you can make your own skin care products. Trust us when we say that your skin will be appreciative.
Your Skin Will Be Softer:
Most lip balms, moisturizers, creams, and lotions often contain drying agents that counteract what they are supposed to be doing! Using real ingredients without drying agents helps your skin stay hydrated, nourished, and soft.
You Might Notice Clearer Skin:
This is not guaranteed because everyone’s skin is different and each person reacts to ingredients in various ways. Halting the use of chemical-rich moisturizers may have a positive affect on the endocrine system, though. These products contain synthetic hormones that can lead to acne, fertility issues, or hormonal imbalance. You may break out using your standard lotion, but your skin may respond positively to an all-natural moisturizer.
Let’s take a look at some of our favorite DIY skin care products below. If you make them, let us know how they work out for you.

When you apply sugar scrubs to your skin, the sugar actually helps remove dead skin cells that accumulate on the skin every single day. As you massage the scrub on your skin, it actually helps increase circulation, which ultimately assists with collagen production and skin cell regeneration.
