Karli Jaenike, a Senior Content Marketing Specialist with siegemedia.com, shared with Healthy Lombard that most people want to know what ingredients go into their beauty products. However, with so many toxins, fillers and foreign ingredients in beauty products, it’s difficult to be sure.
One way to stay as natural as possible when it comes to what you put on your body is to make it yourself. Coconut oil is a natural ingredient with many, many uses. It can be used on its own as a moisturizer, lip balm or hair treatment. It can also be jazzed up with a few simple ingredients to create some really useful homemade products.
She offered Healthy Lombard information on 35 coconut oil beauty products you can make in the comfort of your own home. From your hair to your skin to other parts of the body, this list covers everything.:
1. Perfect Skin Facial Moisturizer
Coconut oil on its own can be too moisturizing for many people’s faces, but this mix of ingredients creates the perfect lotion. The inclusion of vitamin E can help brighten your skin, and the lemon scent is invigorating.
- 4 tablespoons coconut oil
- Juice of 2 lemons
- 2 drops vitamin E oil
Directions: Whip solid coconut oil with a hand mixer until fluffy. Fold in the lemon juice and vitamin E oil. Store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
