Inventive Beauty Techniques Found in Our Kitchen

Delicious items are waiting in the kitchen, but this time we aren't crafting meals.  Instead, we may make all-natural beauty treatments by combining ingredients from the kitchen. This method of caring for our skin and hair is not only affordable, but it also gives us entire authority over all of the ingredients used in our cosmetics.

A lot of cosmetic businesses add parabens and other unpleasant compounds to their products, but edible components are non-toxic and devoid of these substances. Whether we are a professional or a kitchen beginner, we can handle producing our own hair and skin products because the majority of beauty treatment recipes don't require any special cooking abilities to prepare them.

1. How do we make a lip balm?

  • In a double boiler, combine 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, cocoa butter, and beeswax beads.
  • Melt the butter and oil by heating the contents over a kettle of boiling water.
  • Take the mixture off the heat after it has completely melted, then whisk in 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence. Every time you use this balm, the vanilla essence will provide a nice flavor. If we want a cooling sensation, we may substitute the vanilla with a few drops of peppermint essential oil.
  • Keep items in tiny jars or discarded lip balm tubes. Using our preferred container, pour the melted liquid into it and let it for it to cool and set.

2. How do we make a lip scrub?

  • Obtain the coconut oil, sugar, honey, or agave nectar. Combine equal portions of each.
  • Gently apply the mixture to our lips.
  • Allow it to sit for a few minutes so that the honey and oil can do their job of hydrating our lips.
  • While we wait, place any remaining lip scrub in a well sealed container. Wash the scrub off gently with warm water.

3. How do we make a hair conditioner?

  • In a glass jar, combine 4 tablespoons dried lavender and 2 cups boiling water to prepare an extraction.
  • Allow for 1 hour before straining out the petals.
  • To the lavender water, add 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar and a drop of lemon juice.
  • Fill a spray bottle halfway with the mixture.
  • Apply the homemade conditioner to our hair and rinse it off while taking a shower.
  • Apply coconut oil to the ends of our hair around once a week to help replenish our hair's moisture if we start to feel it getting dry.

4. How do we make a face mask?

  • Blend 1/4 cup of honey and 1/2 cup of cocoa to create a chocolate mask.
  • Add 4 teaspoons of heavy cream and 3 tablespoons of oats.
  • The ingredients should be well blended to make a thick paste. This should be applied to our face, then left to sit for 30 minutes.
  • Following 30 minutes, rinse the mask gently under warm water.
  • Refrigerate any remaining mask mixture left.

5. How do we make a cold cream?

  • In 3 ounces of boiling water, soak one or two bags of green tea.
  • Throw away the tea bag after brewing the tea for 2 to 4 minutes.
  • Mix with 1/2 teaspoon soy lecithin.
  • Let the soy lecithin in the tea dissolve by allowing the mixture to sit for an hour.
  • Thaw the tea water in a microwave-safe container once the hour has elapsed, just until it is about boiling.
  • In a separate microwave-safe container, add 2 teaspoons of beeswax beads and 3 tablespoons of castor oil.
  • Microwave the wax and oil mixture until the beads melt.
  • Start mixing the wax and oil mixture together using an electric mixer.
  • Add 20 drops of tea tree oil or your preferred essential oil after pouring half of the tea.
  • Continue to pour green tea into the container after that.
  • The ingredients will start to thicken as we combine them with the mixer, but keep going. Continue doing that until the mixture cools off. It will have thickened into a cream by then.
  • Cream should be kept in a container with a cover. 

Making our own beauty products instead of buying them from a store may require a bit more effort, but we will be able to control the ingredients. By using food-safe components, we can assure that our beauty regimen is free of toxins, parabens, and other potentially harmful substances. Additionally, we'll feel proud that we worked hard with our own two hands to get our bright, spotless, and lovely appearance.
