Make Your Own Beauty Products

With the wide range of beauty products on the shelves, why do some people make their own beauty products? I started making my own products for skin care years ago. I have a book about natural skin care. You can actually make masks from mashed fruit. They are really complicated if, but back then, I was really broke. You can not spend on skin care, so I made do with what we could achieve. I mashed watermelon and put on my face.

My face felt very clean, but there was a bit of a rash after that. I also read that papaya used in spas to return exfoliating masks. Indeed, enzymes of papaya and pineapple are often used to exfoliate the skin. These can be quite hard though, so I've never tried on my face. One thing led to another. I went to make my own creams.

I went through a period of time where every body lotion I tried to shops, from cheap to $ 20, made my itchy skin. That led me to make my skin cream. Cream recipes I found were mainly for cold cream. These things were really heavy in oil. I wanted something lighter. A water-based lotion. One is basically water droplets suspended in the oil, kept in that state by an emulsifier. To my creams, I used beeswax as an emulsifier. Experienced in the kitchen. After a lot of failed experiments. Finally, I arrived with the lotion in a texture that he loved.

Be Careful Not to Lose Firmness

The rates of loss of firmness and elasticity of the skin varies from person to person, depending on their genetic makeup, general health, excessive sun exposure, the system of skin care, or lack of, and other factors. As the skin becomes less elastic, it also becomes drier the underlying fatty tissue begins to disappear as a result of the skin begins to sag. Our skin is less flexible, and wrinkles begin to form. At this stage, our skin is more easily injured, heals more slowly and tends to dry faster. The role of pH in acne As noted above, the pH of the skin is important and maintaining a pH slightly acid of about 5.5 is critical. PH of the skin is a major contributor to acne and other skin problems.

Propionibacterium acnes is a bacterium that normally lives on the skin and is a normal bacteria found in all people regardless of the presence or absence of acne. However, in people prone to acne, the number of P. acnes is much higher. It was found that the growth of this bacteria is highly dependent on pH of skin and growth is at its lowest in normal skin pH of 5.5. A slight shift towards the alkaline pH would provide a better environment in which to prosper. Importance of pH of the skin: Do’s and Don’ts One of the main culprits that radically alter the pH of the skin, is soap. Ordinary soaps, available in the market are highly alkaline (pH range 9-11) and raise the pH of the skin to be much more alkaline.
