Top 5 DIY Beauty Products For St Valentines
Nothing is more romantic and suited to St. Valentine’s Day than a red lip! And nothing is less romantic than a lipstick full of chemicals – so make your own! In my ‘make lipstick like a pro’ recipe, I show you how to make DIY lipstick that’s shaped perfectly in the traditional lipstick tube that we’ve all come to know and love.
Homemade Lotion Bars
A lotion bar is a solid lotion that melts into your skin upon contact –- and has the added bonus of imparting a subtle scent depending on the formula you use. I think they’re the perfect way to keep your skin soft and subtle (and glowing for that Valentine’s Day outfit).
DIY Perfume with Essential Oils
A signature scent is a perfect accessory for a romantic St. Valentine’s Day date. Most conventional perfumes are loaded with toxic chemicals like phthalates –- but you can make your own non-toxic and customized scent using essential oils.
Picking warming essential oils (with natural aphrodisiac-qualities!) makes this DIY perfume perfect for St. Valentine’s Day. Cinnamon, clove and cardamom bring a little extra spice to this scent while also boosting circulation and mood.
DIY Massage Bar
A DIY massage bar is a perfect non-toxic treat to both soothe the skin and relax the body. You can use this energizing massage bar as a moisturizer, or to up the ante on romance with your partner on St. Valentine’s Day! The high shea butter content imparts high amounts of stearic and palmitic acids to nourish and protect the skin, while the Apricot kernel oil helps the oil to glide smoothly over skin as it melts – perfect for giving massages!
Homemade Chocolate Lip Scrub
A lip scrub is a perfect partner for lipstick, making the application go on so much smoother –- and also a must-have for perfectly kissable lips! My homemade chocolate lip scrub is 100% edible, and delicious with real cocoa and brown sugar as an exfoliant, and also helps to plump the lips with circulation-boosting cinnamon powder. Your lips will be left silky soft and a little sweet!
