5 Reasons To Make Your Own Skin Care Products

5 Reasons To Make Your Own Skin Care Products



We all have a choice about how and where we buy our skin care products, but have you ever thought about making your own? It is a trend that has been rapidly gaining popularity, and one we are proud to be waving the flag for. Making your own skin care products is a great way to take control of your skin care regime and your budget simultaneously.
 
If you're not yet convinced, check out these top five reasons to learn how to make your own products:


1. YOUR SKIN DESERVES BETTER


Maybe you've tried a range of commercial products and none seem to work well for you. What you've experienced is really not uncommon. We're all different people with different skin types. Even people with similar skin types may react differently to the same products. When you make your own skin care products, you can easily experiment to find out what works best for you, then concentrate on those formulations that you feel are helping you meet your skin care goals.

Perhaps you will discover that our moisturiser for mature skin recipe works best for you thanks to the macadamia nut oil and thistle oil, or maybe our face and body cream recipe will be more suitable to your skin. In any case, you can try a variety of recipes – or create your own - to get exactly what you want.


2. BETTER VALUE FOR MONEY

 

We are generally aware that quality costs money, but the old adage that says you get what you pay for isn’t always true in skin care and cosmetics.

When purchasing brand-name products you are already paying extra for packaging and marketing before even getting to the ingredients used. Making your own skin care products eliminates that extra expense and you can use your own cosmetic containers and cosmetic packaging to easily choose the size of your finished creation (no more leaving your favourite products at home because they won’t go in your hand luggage when you go on holiday!)


3. TAILORED PRODUCTS JUST FOR YOU

Learning to make your own skin care products also means learning how to tailor what you make perfectly to you.

Natural skin care courses give you all the information you’ll need to understand how to best care for your skin, then you can create something that you love.


Do you suffer from oily skin? If so, blueberry seed oil is one of the ingredients you'll come to appreciate as it helps to reduce large pores. If you suffer from sensitive skin, rosehip is a very popular soft oil that is fantastic to use in a range of different products, from serums to creams. Both avocado butter and avocado oil are great ingredients to use on dry skin. In short, you can choose exactly the ingredients you need to accomplish your skin care goals and will avoid paying extra for ingredients you neither want nor need.


4. GUARANTEED ANIMAL-FREE PRODUCTS

Hidden animal by-products are unfortunately quite common in mass-produced skin care and cosmetics, and it’s not as easy as you’d think to identify what they are. Did you know that hyaluronic acid is commonly sourced from rooster combs and that keratin often comes from pig hair?

When you make your own natural beauty products, you have the opportunity to choose organic ingredients that are free of animal products and by-products. In so doing, you will have the confidence and peace of mind that comes with knowing that no animals were harmed to meet your skin care needs.

All the courses offered by Aromantic are vegan-friendly and all the raw materials sold are plant-based, with the exception of the ethically-sourced beeswax.


5. MAKING YOUR OWN PRODUCTS IS FUN

Last but not least is the fun factor! Creating your own skin care products is not just cost-effective and ethical, it is also really enjoyable! We highly suggest taking a course in making natural beauty products which will give you the opportunity to learn about different skin types and different cosmetic ingredients. Once you get comfortable following natural skin care recipes at home, you’ll be able to unleash your creativity and start formulating your own unique lotions and potions.
