Uh oh, it’s gift giving season. Time to buy a present for your best friend, your brother, your partner, your sister in law, mom, grandma, dad, and that coworker you barely know whose name you drew for the gift exchange.
Or not. One of our favorite things to do this time of year is make a batch or two of some DIY skincare products and give those instead. They’re useful, fun to make, and usually cheaper than buying a bunch of different items. Plus, it’s charming as hell to be all like “happy holidays! I simply whipped this up from items I had lying around — why yes, I do grow my own lavender!”
Here are some of our favorite DIY beauty recipes from (where else?) Pinterest. Follow us at pinterest.com/beautydummy
A lot of DIY hand creams contain beeswax, but this one is a vegan option — it uses shea butter, cocoa butter, jojoba oil and almond oil and is a natural way to get smooth hands. It’ll look as cute as the jar you put it in, so don’t be afraid to get creative.
We love this post on coffee scrubs over at StyleCaster. Coffee is great as an exfoliant and to stimulate circulation, so it works well in on both face and body. This article even has a hair mask recipe.
