A discreet touch of blush, a little mascara or an attractive lipstick. When you’re a flirt, you like to wear makeup. But there’s no question of applying just anything to your skin. What if we started making our own makeup? Here are 3 recipes to make at home.
Kingdom of synthetic dyes, silicones, mineral oils, parabens and endocrine disruptors, commercial makeup is a fabulous cocktail of molecules that are harmful to our bodies. Since we eat organic food, use organic and natural cosmetics and hygiene products, it is time to switch to makeup free of all toxic substances.
Creating your own makeup has many advantages, including the ability to fully customize it. It is possible to choose the textures, the colors, the products adapted to our type of skin but especially to get rid of the toxic elements. You can control the composition of the product by using real “active” ingredients (vegetable butters and oils, essential oils, floral waters). In addition to being economical and ecological, makeup becomes a real care for our skin.
