Show your face, some love with those beauty recipes

Show your face, your feet or your muscles some love with safe, natural, toxin-free spa concoctions

and personal care products.   

The necessary ingredients are usually affordable and not hard to  find in organic or natural form.

The benefits of making your own  cosmetics will be immediately evident: your new products will smell  and feel good, and so will your skin. 

There are no preservatives in these beauty recipes so take a few  
precautions to avoid contamination by bacteria.

Avoid touching products like lip gloss with your fingers – instead use a cotton swab to apply.  

Use products within two weeks, and consider storing them in your refrigerator.

Also, exercise caution if you think you might be allergic to ingredients like nuts, avocados or other common food ingredients.
