diy beauty hack
This has been my go to cleanser for years now and it's about as simple as it gets. It's simple, it's cheap and it will last you forever. All you'll need is witch hazel, an empty jar, some cotton rounds and your desired essential oils.
I personally have oily skin and love using Geranium, Lemon and Helicrysum and sometimes tea tree but I can't seem to find the one I had so I wen't without today. These work really well for balancing the oil production in your skin as well as minimizing scars.
If you got oily or troubled skin, some good oils would be lemongrass, lemon, grapefruit, tangerine, tea tree. I highly recommend using a blend of citrus and lemongrass.
If you have sensitive skin I would recommend things such as lavender, rose, ylang ylang and Roman Chamomile.
Mix about 7 drops of each of your desired essential oils in the witch hazel and that's it. You could either leave it as is in the bottle and use morning and evening or pre make your rounds which I usually do because I'm traveling. I can't always / wan't to carry a lot of liquid with me, at least not in my cary-on, and therefore find it a lot easier and more convenient to make these pre made wipes. Less containers and liquids to worry about.
Add a few cotton rounds in your jar. Add some of the liquid on the rounds till they are soaked. Then add some more rounds in and add some more liquid and do this till you can't fit anymore cotton rounds in your jar. I find it easier to do a few at a time to make sure they're all soaking in the liquid without actually 'drowning' in it. Makes sense? You'll see when you get started.
Days when I don't wear makeup I like to use these a couple of times a day and especially after a workout if I can't shower right away. It's perfect.
And as I said, you could of course just make the mixture and apply to the cotton rounds as you want to use them. You'll probably use a lot less if you do it this way, but hey, anything to make traveling easier :)
Lemme know how it works for you!
