DIY Eco-Beauty: Moisturizer 


Looking for skincare products can be such a whirlwind… There are so many companies, so many lines, and so many products. Do you need a mask or a toner or a moisturizer or a cleanser? How many lotions should you actually put on your face? And with new products that have prices reaching up towards the three digits, how much money can you really afford to spend?


The truth is, many of the things we put on our face and body are chocked full of crazy ingredients. Many of which are not so good for the environment and, not surprisingly, not so good for your skin. So it’s no wonder that eco-friendly, economic-savvy guys and girls are switching up their style with a little DIY action.


We’re going to keep giving you new beauty recipes… so check back often and give 'em a go!


Here’s a simple moisturizer that you can easily make with ingredients you already have!


You’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 beaten egg yolk
  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice (depending upon how thick you want the cream)

Whisk the egg yolks with the lemon juice and slowly add the olive and vegetable oils!


You’ve saved yourself some cash, you’ve given your skin a lovely snack and you’ve greened up your beauty routine. After you’ve tried the recipe, let us know what you thought by commenting below!
