How to make your own beauty and skincare products by using all-natural ingredients.

Instead of just completely overwhelming you with an abundance of facts and information on why making your own beauty and skincare products is a lot better for not only you, but the environment, here are four super easy recipes that you can make right at home by using these two natural products: Coconut oil and organic beeswax.

COCONUT OIL

It’s commonly known that coconut oil has many health benefits, ranging from the treatment of skin and hair problems to being used as an alternative in cooking. But what you possibly didn’t know is that it can kill harmful microorganisms which can be found in many skin issues, “as many types of skin infections, including acne, cellulitis, folliculitis and athlete’s foot, are caused by bacteria or fungi” according to Healthline. It can also reduce inflammation, be used as a moisturiser and can even treat some wounds.

Here are just a couple of DIY makeup and skincare recipes that use coconut oil, both found on wellnessmama.com.

Recipe One: Natural Lipstick

Recipe Two: Sugar Scrub

ORGANIC BEESWAX

Beeswax has been widely used for over a number of centuries, and for a range of different reasons. For example, it can be a healthier candle option, due to helping neutralize pollutants in the air and not producing toxic by-products or heavy soot. This is because “it is a non-toxic, natural ingredient that contains non-allergenic properties which protects the skin from airborne allergies” according to uniorganics.com. Additionally, 100% beeswax provides a protective layer to the skin, holding in moisture and reducing dryness. It also contains vitamin A, soothes temporary itching and has a natural delicious fragrance.

Here are just a couple of DIY makeup and skincare recipes to make using beeswax, the first one was found on realfoodrn.com and the second one on saynotsweetanne.com.

Recipe Three: Mascara

Recipe Four: Green Tea Face Cream
