When it comes to my "beauty routine" I keep things pretty simple.
I rarely wear makeup, but when I do I wear a small amount, and really love Root Pretty, partly because its made in Waverly, IA and mostly because it is natural and safe.
I don't put much else on my face. I occasionally wash my face with soap, but most days I use a Norwex body cloth and water.
After "washing" my face, I use a small amount of my homemade coconut oil face lotion, add a spritz of my rose face mist, and I'm good to go.
Making your own face lotion doesn't take very long and you don't need that many ingredients--plus it's A LOT cheaper than those $50+ tubes of eye cream, winkle reducers, and moisturizers, and without the harsh chemicals. So many positives!
Homemade Coconut Oil Face Lotion
- 1/3 c coconut oil, unrefined
- 5-10 drops lavender
- 10 drops Vit E oil (optional)
- 10 drops sesame or jojoba oil (optional)
Put in stand mixer and mix for several minutes, until whipped.
Store in a jar.
After cleansing your face, use a very small amount on your fingertips and rub into your face. Follow with a spritz of rose face mist.
