I’ve been giving some thought recently to the amount of chemicals that are found in most cosmetics. This concerns me as I have a very dry skin and use body cream, day cream, night cream and eye cream…Doctors often prescribe medicine in the topical form – from hormonal creams and patches to very strong pain killers. So clearly what we put on our skin can be absorbed into our system and cause changes inside our body – for better or for worse!
So I nervously decided to stop using all the face/body products that I have been using all the years and to give some homemade body products a bash. These products contain ingredients that are easy to get hold of, not terribly expensive and are quick to put together. Most importantly – I KNOW what is in them and know how good they are for me.
I really encourage everyone to give this a try – I don’t think you’ll be disappointed:) If the first recipe you try does not suit you – please don’t give up. I’m sure you have tried several face creams, body creams, soaps etc from the shops before deciding on the product you like best. We all have different skins and live in different climates so our skin needs do vary. The recipes posted here are those that work best for me. I am sharing them with you in the hope that they will work for you too. However, if some of them don’t, search the web for other recipes that may suit you better.
Pamper yourself – you deserve it
