DIY Apple Cider Vinegar Facial Toner

This super duper simple and cheap potion can do wonders for your skin! It’s one of the things I use for my water-only face washing routine and it helps my jawline acne, which has become one of the most frustrating forms of acne I’ve ever come across.

Seriously, the front of my face is fine, but when you look closely at my jawline, particularly the right side, all you’ll see are very painful zits.

This DIY ACV toner can help improve your overall complexion by balancing and restoring your skin’s natural pH. It certainly did mine!

DIY Dry Shampoo For Light/Dark Hair

Standard

Hey guys!

So today I’ll be sharing with you my DIY Dry Shampoo Recipe. It’s not even a recipe because it’s that easy, but it makes it sound fancy.

Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is essential to my hair routine because I don’t wash my hair everyday. When I first started out, my scalp would produce so much oil that I relied on dry shampoo a lot. My money and scalp health went down the drain when I first started using the store-bought dry shampoo.

So here’s my recipe for DIY Natural Dry Shampoo:

What you’ll need:

  • Spice flask
  • Cornstarch
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder (only for darker-haired peeps!)
  • Funnel

Depending how dark your hair is, the ratio of cornstarch to unsweetened cocoa powder may vary. The darker your hair is, the more cocoa powder you should use. Otherwise you’ll end up with grey looking roots. If you’ve got light/blonde hair, you’ll only really need to use cornstarch.

DIY Body Balm

One fine summer day, I decided to go crazy and ordered 10 lbs. of beeswax. This was probably half a year ago, and I’ve only used up maybe half a pound for my lotion bars experiment.

Now that graduation has provided me with more free time, I’ve decided to make use of the leftover beeswax and make my own beauty balm salve. This was inspired by Michelle Phan’s Travel Tips Video, but unlike her, I can’t afford many beauty products and am transitioning into a more natural beauty products lifestyle, so even if I was able to afford the product she used in her video, those questionable ingredients will prevent me from purchasing.

So this is my DIY all-around beauty salve! This can be used in multiple of ways including:
