DIY natural skin care routine

Here are some general steps you can follow :

1. Cleansing

The first and most important step in any DIY natural skin care routine is to cleanse your face.

This helps to get rid of dirt, oil, and makeup.

Helping your skin to breathe and absorb other skincare products better.

A simple honey cleanser is a great way to start creating your own DIY cleanser.

Honey is a natural humectant that helps keep your skin moisturized and has antibacterial properties.

How to make a honey cleanser

  • Mix one tablespoon of raw, organic honey with a few drops of water to create a spreadable consistency.
  • Apply the honey cleanser to your face and massage it in gentle circular motions for about one minute.
  • Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry.

2. Exfoliation

Exfoliation can make a big difference in improving your skincare routine.

It helps remove dead skin and unclog pores.

Making your skin feel smoother and brighter.

Making your own exfoliator with natural ingredients like sugar and coconut oil is a cheap and easy option if you want to save money and avoid harsh chemicals.

How to make a DIY natural exfoliant

  • Mix one tablespoon of granulated sugar with one tablespoon of melted coconut oil to create a paste-like consistency.
  • Gently massage the scrub onto your skin in gentle circular motions for about one minute.
  • Focus on areas that are prone to acne.
  • Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry.
  • Avoid over-exfoliating, as it can cause skin irritation.

3. Toning

Balancing your skin’s pH levels and tightening your pores are crucial for maintaining healthy skin.

And you can achieve this by adding a natural DIY rose water toner to your skin-care routine.

Rose water is well-known for its hydrating and soothing properties.

This makes it an excellent choice for a DIY toner.

Here’s how to make a natural DIY toner to add to your skincare routine

  • Mix one tablespoon of rose water with one tablespoon of distilled water in a small spray bottle.
  • You can add a few drops of witch hazel or apple cider vinegar for additional benefits.
  • After cleansing and exfoliating, spritz the toner onto your face.
  • Or apply it with a cotton pad.
  • Gently pat it on your skin and let it dry before moving on to the next step.

4. Spot treatment

Spot treatment is an optional part of a DIY natural skin care routine.

And it also depends on your specific skin problems.

But you can make your homemade treatment products to treat acne, dark spots, or dry patches.

And for acne-prone skin, you can try making a DIY spot treatment using tea tree oil.

Tea tree oil has antibacterial properties that help reduce inflammation and kill the bacteria that cause acne.

How to make a DIY tea tree oil spot treatment for acne

  • Mix one drop of tea tree oil with a carrier oil, such as coconut or jojoba oil.
  • And apply it directly to the acne spots using a cotton swab.
  • Leave it on overnight and rinse off in the morning.

5. Moisturization

To keep your skin hydrated and healthy, moisturizing regularly is important.

You can make your own moisturizer using natural oils such as jojoba, coconut, or shea butter.

Or you can use these oils on their own as a body moisturizer.

Customize it and make natural oils part of your DIY skin care routine.

How to make a DIY moisturizer

  • Mix coconut, jojoba oil, or shea butter with other beneficial ingredients like aloe vera gel, rosehip oil, or essential oils to create a customized moisturizer for your skin type.

Wearing sunscreen is super important if you want to protect your skin from sunburns and premature skin aging.

So don’t forget to slather on some SPF every time you step out into the sun to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy for years to come.

Keep in mind that every skin is unique and reacts differently to various DIY skincare ingredients.

Therefore, it’s crucial to pay close attention to how your skin reacts to each product and make adjustments as needed.

Before applying any DIY skincare product to your face, please do a patch test to ensure your skin doesn’t react adversely.

Lastly, it’s always best to consult a dermatologist for personalized advice if you have specific skin concerns.
