Homemade skin care products: Natural ingredients to pamper your skin

fruit.07.12.10.jpgIf you open up your kitchen cabinets or peek into your refrigerator, you might find some of the most common ingredients I use in some of my natural beauty recipes; Mangoes, pineapple, lime, lemon, banana, avocadoes, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, etc.,

If you cannot find some of the items like your carrier oils (coconut oil, jojoba oil) or essential oils (rose geranium, lavender, Rosemary) check out your local health food store or pick them up at an online store. I incorporate aromatherapy into my natural beauty products. I first discovered aromatherapy in 1994, read numerous books on the subject. I took courses, received certifications, and happily included them in my natural beauty products.

I first became interested in natural skin care products when I was a teenager. The reason was simple, many of the over the counter products caused skin irritations with my sensitive skin, and so I headed to the local library, researching skin care products, and why some ingredients caused a reaction.

It was an eye-opening experience reading about the ingredients that make up some of the beauty products, and I searched for alternate ways to cleanse my skin. I guess you could say that’s where it all began, my love for natural things and eventually creating my own business focused on homemade natural beauty products.

Whether your looking for facial masks, cold creams, all natural toothpaste, facial scrubs, or sports rubs, many of the products you find in stores can be duplicated at home. You might enjoy them even more. The shelf life won’t be as long as your over the counter products, unless you add a preservative. However they’ll be fresh and can be replenished once it’s gone.

Here’s hoping you enjoy some of the recipes that I share here at I’m Celebrating Life, homemade skin care products are a simple but effective way to pamper your skin.

Oh, please do share! Can’t wait to try some of these. I would definitely prefer to make my own and know exactly what goes in and use some organic ingredients, yummy 🙂


I’ll be posting something either later today or tomorrow. The majority of the products don’t really take a lot of ingredients. They can be very simple to make, smell delicious, and are effective too. 🙂


this is great…another alternative for skin care…


@ARJAY – It’s always nice to have options. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

Fruits is absolutely the best thing to have to pamper your skin and more likely nourish it. They are the best thing that most dermatologist had been suggesting. Then also consider increasing your oral fluid intake to get rid of your toxins.
