10 DIY Winter Skincare Recipes

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.

Coconut oil is very great for our skin and health too. It is also very beneficial for hair growth.
