What’s more relaxing than soaking your feet in warm water after a tiring day? A simple foot soak will do the trick. And you don’t have to buy those expensive foot soaks. Instead, you can make one at home with this homemade skincare recipe. All you need is baking soda. Take a shallow tub and add a ratio of 1/2 cup baking soda for every gallon of warm water. Stir the powder until it dissolves. Soak your feet in it for 30 minutes. Then rinse away the baking soda and pat your feet dry.

6. Honey lip scrub

Want that perfect pout? We have the best homemade skincare recipe for it! Mix one teaspoon of coconut oil and raw honey with 2 tablespoons of raw sugar and a dash of lemon juice in a small bowl. Apply that mixture to your lips in a gentle, circular motion. You can use a toothbrush here. Wash it off, and then apply a lip balm.

You can make organic lip balm easily at home with only a few kitchen ingredients. You need coconut oil, sweet almond oil, essential oils, beeswax, and a couple of empty lip balm jars. First, melt almond oil, coconut oil, and beeswax in a double boiler on low heat. Once melted, remove from the heat and add essential oils. Next, use those empty lip balm jars and fill them with the prepared lip balm. Let it cool for a few hours to firm up before using it.

8. Cucumber eye mask

We found a unique way to use cucumber slices other than the typical eye masks. That is, grating them. Take a cold cucumber and grate it (grated cucumber releases the enzymes that are good for your skin) over a paper towel. Next, wrap the pieces like a burrito and compress them. Now use them as you would use the slices.

9. Honey facial masks

One of the best things you can do for your body is to have raw honey in your kitchen (and actually use it). One of the ways you can use honey for your skin is by making a hydrating honey and yogurt facial mask. For this DIY skincare product, you need only two ingredients: raw honey and plain yogurt. Mix one tablespoon of raw honey with two tablespoons of plain yogurt. Apply the mask to the face. Then wipe the mask off with a warm washcloth. And, now you’re more than ready to go and flaunt your glowing face!

10. Face cleanser for all skin types

Store-bought facial cleansers can sometimes be harsh as they strip the natural hydration from the skin. This is where enters DIY skincare products – homemade facial cleansers for all skin types. All you need is castile soap, almond oil, vitamin E oil, ylang ylang essential oil, frankincense essential oil, and lavender essential oil (you can customize the essential oils). Take all the ingredients in a bottle, add water to the mixture, and shake it well. There you go. You now have an all-natural facial cleanser.

So instead of spending tons of money on commercially made beauty products, why not try making your own? These homemade skincare products will be twice as effective as store-bought ones, and half the price!
