Why to start doing your own beauty products??? Well.. for a lot of reasons but here I would share with you the Top 4 that make DIY a must!
Top 4 reasons for choosing DIY
1. DIY is a Must for SKIN
The first reason why DIY is a Must is because Skin! Skin is unique!! I’m pretty sure that my skin is completely different from yours rather than that my best friend or my mum. Maybe your skin is extremely sensitive or how mine tends to fill up with pimples once a month. Each skin is different and needs to be treated differently. With DIY you can create your own products by choosing ingredients that are specific to certain skin types. On the market, there are a myriad of products that enhance their beneficial properties. But how many do we really have to try before we find what really meets our expectations? With DIY we can have fun creating new products. Maybe the first or the second one that we will realise will not be as we expected but by trying and testing we will finally be able to realise our unique, specific and effective product.
Reason #1: making your own product will give you the chance to realise something perfect and unique that you will love
2. DIY is a Must for saving MONEY
It will certainly have happened to you to be at the airport waiting for your flight. What can I do in the meanwhile? Let’s spend time observing all the products at the duty free… what!?!? More than 30 – 40€ for the “cheapest” skin cream!?!? Really? No, my friends, it’s too much! Ok, probably the packaging is cute but it’s really worth? And how many products do we have to buy before we can find the right and effective one for our skin? The other day I was curios to understand I much it would cost a cream made at home..well for 100 g (3.5Oz) of product ..less than 3-4 € ($)!!
Reason #2: save money !
3. DIY is a Must for having FUN
In all of us there is a child. It’s not only a phrase but I think that is true. We are all day seating in front of the computer, or cleaning house, or discussing at work, surrounded by boring paperworks or studying for another exam! Sometime I think “let’s do something concrete! Let’s get dirty our hands with colours..try to create something new and enjoy this time”. DIY is all of this! Means expressing your creativity; making mistakes and trying again; feeling proud to have created something unique.
Reason #3: The exact moment you realise that you’ve done something special. It is also the moment that makes you proud of yourself and aware that you’re good!
4. DIY is a Must for REDUCING WASTE
Once I read that a way to reduce the amount of waste is starting made your own beauty products at home. I’m totally agree with it! Think about the huge amount of products that we buy daily for our beauty, such as skin creams, hair products, tonics etc.. How many empty jars do we throw away?? Maybe burned in an incinerator or even worst, dumped somewhere. Awful! Doing your products at home, we can re-use old jars and help the environment. If you want to learn more about the plastic problems just click here, I wrote an article only about it.
Reason #4: be aware that what we buy will become soon a waste! Try to make your best for reduce the amount of garbage!
These are only 4 reasons that had pushed me to start with DIY. My recipes are only a starting point to let your creativity to go out, realising something great!!
