Good Looks – Green Beauty Trends

There is an array of basic ingredients that you can create innovative beauty products.  These ingredients are inexpensive and they work.   No need to run to the store to purchase the latest costly skincare products that promise miracles.  Natural products work just as well and you can take comfort in knowing the ingredients.  Here are a few ideas:


Paste of baking soda, salt and water
Lip scrub
Baking soda, water and peroxide
Tooth scrub and whitener
Coffee scrub made at home
Facial or body scrub
Apple cider vinegar
Clarifying hair rinse
Olive oil or coconut oil
Facial moisturizer
Shea butter mixed with coconut oil
Hand cream

Dandruff control
Shea butter mixed with coconut oil
Lip balm

The recipes can be found here.  As you can see, quite a few natural products have double duty utility.  Make either small quantities or just enough for one use.  You’ll save money and our environment.
