DIY: Facial Products
This past year, I decided that I wanted to make my own facial products. This way I know what ingredients are in the products that I use on my face. So of course, like everyone else, I needed to do research since I didn't how to make any of the facial products that I wanted to use. While researching, I came across several recipes that use apple cider vinegar, coconut oil and other items that I have in my cupboards. I was amazed that you could use coconut oil or apple cider vinegar on your face. I found several recipes for each product that I wanted to make so I could try out different ones to see which one fits my face.
So in this article, I have the ones that I use as well as some that I intend to try in the future. I hope this article was helpful.
