Today is Beauty Tricks Monday and I’m back with another DIY Vegan All-Natural beauty tip on how to get glowing skin.
About a month ago, I realized that my DIY Shampoo and Conditioner was working so well that it was time to try a new challenge.
Since then, I’ve been making my own face products as well.
They’re almost as simple to throw together as my hair products, and they work just as amazingly!
I’m someone who has washed my face every morning and night for years.
I have used many products with varying success, but nothing as great as my DIY Cleanser.
Here’s how you make this amazing cleanser.
More likely than not, you have everything in the kitchen right now to throw this together!
DIY Vegan Facial Cleanser
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1 tbsp honey
- Blend the oats in a food processor or Magic Bullet to make oat flour.
- Add almond milk and honey
- Blend together until smooth
- Store mixture in fridge when not in use
It’s that easy!
I made this recipe nearly a month ago and have not run out yet.
When I made this originally, I had not yet begun making my own milk, so I used store-bought almond milk.
I have had no problems with it on my skin, so if you’re not ready to make your own milk, you can still get better skin today!
How To Get Glowing Skin : DIY Moisturizer
Your skin is your body’s biggest organ. Think about this for a second.
You can be eating the most amazing clean, whole food plant-based vegan diet and still be destroying your body with chemical products via: you guessed it, your skin.
And why would you keep spending money on these products when you don’t have to?
Why would you purchase a product that tests on animals when you don’t have to?
I had been using the same product brand for years before I read that they were not cruelty-free, although they claim to be.
What I read explained that they outsource the animal testing to a company in China so that they can identify as a company that does not test on animals.
Now, I understand you can’t believe everything you read, but I’d rather not run the risk.
This summer I saw this video on Facebook and knew it would change the choices I make as a consumer.
This video is a positive, beautiful, loving video about beagles who spent their first 6 years in a test lab, but are rescued here.
Definitely worth watching, it will make your heart smile.
Don’t worry, I will never put a horrific video on here of animals being abused.
I know it happens, but I can’t watch it. I choose to be a vegan to do my part to end it.
You may not save all the animals with my DIY Moisturizer, but every little bit helps.
You need two simple items and two ingredients:
- Mixing Bowl
- Empty moisturizer tube (I bought mine in the travel section at the drug store. here’s a link to amazon)
- Vitamin E capsules
- Coconut Oil
The quantities aren’t very exact for this and they don’t need to be.
Scoop out some Coconut Oil (I would guess I use 1/4 cup) and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds.
It will be very melted and that is how you want it!
Cut the tips of two Vitamin E capsules and pour them into your melted coconut oil. Mix together well.
Use a small funnel to pour your mixture from the bowl into your moisturizer tube.
This can be stored at room temperature. Unless you keep your house very cold, you’ll be able to squeeze it out easily when you want to use it.
If your fiance likes to keep your home at 65 degrees like mine does, you may have to melt it for a few seconds before using.
When I was still using my brand name moisturizer, I had to use a separate foundation primer prior to applying my foundation.
It’s a clear liquid that gives your skin a smooth finish and makes your foundation look polished.
Now that I use my coconut oil moisturizer, there is no need for a separate primer.
My makeup glides on effortlessly.
I even put this on my eyelids because it makes a huge difference in the application of my eye makeup.
My skin routine is very simple now:
- Wash off makeup with DIY Eye Make Up Remover (recipe coming soon)
- Clean face with DIY Facial Cleanser, wipe face clean with warm washcloth
- Apply DIY Moisturizer
- Admire your beautiful skin in the mirror
That’s all about how to get glowing skin.
Don’t waste any more time or money on your brand name products, they are by no means a requirement to have beautiful skin.
