Homemade All-Natural Face PowderJul 18, 2020
Your skin is the largest organ in, I mean ON, your body.
So, what you put ON your body is just as important as what you put IN your body.
Personal care & skin products, even “natural” ones, are made with thousands of chemical ingredients. These fragrances, stabilizers, and harmful additives are:
🚩Known and suspected carcinogens.
🚩Toxic to your reproductive system.
🚩Known to disrupt your endocrine system—your thyroid gland, adrenal glands, HPA axis, and more.
We use at least 9-15 topical products a day—shampoo, conditioner, soap, face wash, toothpaste, lotion, shaving cream, sunscreen. I haven’t even mentioned makeup yet, girlfriend!
Those chemical nasties add up fast!
Here’s a simple recipe that will help you swap out ONE product you're probably using every day.
It’s simple, it smells delish, and the cacao is rich in antioxidants that nourish your skin! The tint is totally customizable too…perfect for every shade of beauty!
All-Natural, Customizable Face Powder
- 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder
- 1/2 teaspoon of cacao or cocoa powder, plus more to reach desired color
- Mix ingredients and stir until well-combined.
- Add 1/8 to 1/4 tsp of cacao at a time until you match or enhance your desired skin tone.
- Store in a closed glass container and shake well before each use.
To customize even more:
- For additional tints, add a pinch of turmeric (yellow), paprika (pink/red), or cinnamon (warmer brown) to get just the right color.
- Add a couple drops of essential oil, if desired. Some great oils for skin health are:
Lavender, Frankincense, Geranium, Tea tree, and Rosewood. I use and recommend Spark Naturals essential oils.
- You can use organic cornstarch for this powder, but it’s a bit stickier than arrowroot. And, I personally don’t eat corn, so I don’t use it on my skin.
