Have you ever made your own beauty products at home? I recently received an advanced copy of the book DIY Beauty by Ina de Clercq and I’m feeling inspired. The book is published by Simon and Schuster’s Adams Media and it’s available on June 4, 2019. Pick up your copy if you’re like me and you love experimenting and making lotions and potions. I think it would be fun to get together with a few girlfriends and mix up a few batches to share.
DIY Beauty has recipes for face masks, hair products, skincare products, deodorant, makeup and bath products. The recipes allow you to understand what exactly is in your product and how to customize each recipe to fit your specific needs. In addition, it contains instructions on how to make so many cult favorites. It will save you money by making these products at home.
I feel like summer is the perfect time to experiment with making some products on my own. With the kids out of school for the summer, you could spend a day making some fun bath bombs for everyone to enjoy their summer baths.
The book offers recipes for 100 products that are inspired by favorites from brands such as Kiehls, Dr. Jart+, Tom Ford, Moroccanoil, Herbivore and more. But before you get started crafting your own products you’ll want to read the first chapter. Ina explains the tools needed, along with where to purchase, how to use them and tips for packaging and storage.
Why do you need DIY Beauty?
All-natural ingredients are used for each recipe. The beauty of creating your own products is that you know EXACTLY what’s in them. Nothing is hidden within words that you can’t pronounce. I’ve been looking on Amazon for some of the ingredients that I want to pick up along with some really fun empty containers to put my products in (*see below). Think of all the gifts you could make at home too… Use fun labels and pretty packaging and you’re all set to make someone else’s day!
This book is the perfect addition to my beauty arsenal. DIY Beauty is available June 4, 2019. You can purchase in stores or purchase now over on Amazon. The book can save you money on popular beauty products by making your own at home. You’ll have a hard time choosing which product to make first. It just may satisfy the inner scientist in you too!
