Turning slowly on the "green" life, I decided to make a new qualitative leap. Disclaimer shampoos, deodorants, creams led to another problem: Is it possible to go on a self-made cosmetics?
Because, really, mascara, blush, eye shadow, lipstick - it is those products which are in contact with a person permanently, and so they should be as safe (free from preservatives, synthetic chemicals). Then it is necessary to try to make the most decorative cosmetics.
And we start with the essentials - mascara. And it's not just for me the most necessary. One poll showed MyCharm.ru that without mascara do not think your way out to the people about one percent of women. And it was the most popular answer.
Recipes found some. As always, I talk about those who tried out on himself.
- 2 tablets of activated carbon,
- A few drops of aloe vera juice (available fresh aloe juice, but you can purchase aloe vera gel in it about 98% of natural juice).
It is necessary to mix the ingredients together. Crush tablets coal to add some juice of aloe vera (approximately 1: 1 ratio). Mascara is ready! You can take a brush of mascara used (pre-washed and dried), and use as normal.
Makeup removal done as usual with warm water or with a cotton pad and liquid makeup remover. Keep better long in the refrigerator a week. But given the number of missing only a couple of performances, so afraid that the product will deteriorate, not worth it.
A nice bonus: This composition, as well as all that you prepare yourself as mascara, can be used as a liquid liner. If the consistency is thickish, home composition is always possible to make such a density as you need.
Previous recipe, I must say, the more I liked as a liner because the lashes he was not very visible, and generally watery consistency. Therefore, there is such a prescription, thicker variety. Ingredients:
- 2 tablets charcoal
- A few drops of aloe vera
- Beeswax (or almond oil, or coconut oil)
Beeswax makes the texture more dense and viscous, provides good adhesion to the cilia. An interesting recipe, try it. And for a long time does not change the texture, because the first time is not a recipe to thicken, just dry it. And then a few days in a jar composition was the same as the first day.
A nice bonus: By the way, these experiments are now helped me to not be upset if the purchase mascara too thick liquid or vice versa. I know how to fix natural ingredients!
Another good and easy recipe.
- Activated carbon
- Castor oil (available olive oil, jojoba oil, coconut)
- Vitamin E oil
Also you need to mix all the feelings that had the texture of liquid sour cream. This composition does not dry completely. The presence of vitamin E pleases, it is often put in products for eye cosmetics manufacturers. I think that in castor oil include nutrients, such as fatty acid, for example. Therefore, there is a caring properties.
The addition of jojoba oil seemed to me the most successful. It moisturizes, and the composition does not change its consistency. While coconut oil is more malleable in the hot season, and thus more liquid. In general, the better to experiment with coconut, when the street is not very hot.
A nice bonus: You can enrich your purchase and mascara with vitamins, if you add just a drop of vitamin E oil. If you have bought vitamin E capsules, simply pierce the needle cover and pour the contents (there is just one drop) in the ink.
Despite the fact that we are trying to find only natural ingredients Home-made cosmetics, it does not mean absolute security for all. This is me about allergies. Be sure to check first hand on how to behave in the skin of the new compositions.
And another tip. Do not make too much of the composition. Suppose that you have enough for a few staining. And do not forget, utensils for cooking, storage container and brush for applying must be clean. All this saves you from bacteria.
The online store for Home-made cosmetics pigments are sometimes sold. Black pigment (powder) can replace activated carbon. However, in natural pigments have, for example, there are doubts.
