DIY: Homemade Cosmetics Recipes for Natural Beauty

In a world where the labels on beauty products seem increasingly complex, turning to simple and natural solutions has never been more appealing. Making your own homemade cosmetics is not only an excellent way to reduce your ecological footprint but also to control the ingredients that come into contact with your skin. Here are three easy recipes to start your adventure in the world of DIY cosmetics.

1. Nourishing Honey and Avocado Face Mask


  • 1/2 ripe avocado

  • 1 tablespoon of raw honey

Instructions: Mash the avocado in a small bowl until smooth. Add the honey and mix until the two ingredients are well combined. Apply the mask to your clean face and leave it on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a towel. Avocado moisturizes and deeply nourishes the skin, while honey has antibacterial and soothing properties.

2. Sugar and Coconut Oil Body Scrub


  • 1/2 cup of cane sugar

  • 1/4 cup of virgin coconut oil

  • A few drops of your favorite essential oil (optional)

Instructions: Melt the coconut oil over low heat if it is solid. Mix the melted coconut oil with the cane sugar in a bowl. Add a few drops of essential oil if desired. Use this scrub on damp skin, gently massaging in circular motions, then rinse. This scrub exfoliates the skin while leaving it feeling soft and hydrated thanks to the coconut oil.

3. Beeswax Hydrating Lip Balm


  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil

  • 1 tablespoon of beeswax

  • 1 teaspoon of sweet almond oil

  • A few drops of peppermint essential oil (optional)

Instructions: Melt the beeswax, coconut oil, and sweet almond oil in a double boiler. Once the mixture is liquid and homogeneous, remove from heat and add the peppermint essential oil. Pour into small lip balm containers and allow to cool completely. This lip balm offers long-lasting hydration and a pleasant refreshing sensation.
