4. Avocado Lip Balm
You know that I’m a fan of food-based beauty recipes, and this avocado lip balm from From Nature With Love fits the bill perfectly! Just combine avocado oil, coconut oil, mango or shea butter with a little bit of beeswax or carnuba wax for a homemade lip balm that’s just as good as anything from the store. If your local health food store or co-op doesn’t have all of these ingredients, you can find them pretty easily online.
5. DIY Winter Face Mask
If your face is already pretty dry, you can rejuvenate it with a homemade face mask. This recipe from Your Daily Thread calls for yogurt and honey, but you can make this a vegan recipe by using coconut yogurt and agave nectar instead.
6. Tomato Face Scrub
Exfoliate your face and give it a healthy glow with an all natural tomato scrub! This is one of the simplest beauty recipes ever: slice a tomato in half, cover in sugar or salt, then use the piece of tomato as a scrubber to gently exfoliate your face.
7. Face Moisturizer
Protect your skin from winter winds and dry weather with a homemade moisturizer. Combine aloe vera gel with vegetable glycerine and some essential oils, and you’re ready to rock! You can check out the full recipe at the Healthy Vegan Blog.
