In the event you’ve been studying Wellness Mama for lengthy, you realize that I’m not a fan of using chemicals that I can’t pronounce to clean my house or rubbing them on my face, the place they are often absorbed in just some seconds.
The logical extension of avoiding dangerous chemical substances is discovering pure choices for private care merchandise and make-up. I made my very own shampoo and toothpaste (and began a company to share these recipes with others) however discovering pure (and inexpensive) make-up choices that I liked was harder.
I found out a liquid foundation recipe that gives nice protection for zits and pores and skin discoloration, however since I don’t put on make-up day by day. In the end I wished a lightweight tinted face lotion that might be used every day for a tiny bit shade, with out wanting like I used to be sporting make-up in any respect.
My answer? This lighter model of a liquid basis, with additional moisturizing energy.
Make Tinted Face Lotion or Moisturizer (Like BB Cream)
As I discussed, this tinted face lotion is much like pure basis however thinner and with much less protection. Many corporations name it magnificence balm or BB cream. It doubles as a pure facial moisturizer.
With its slight bronzing impact, I can use it every day nevertheless it by no means seems to be or looks like make-up. It goes on clean and dries to a powdery clean end.
I used a store-bought lotion on this recipe as a result of it’s what I had available. In the event you don’t have already got a very good face lotion you need to use the selfmade face lotion from this recipe. It’s so simple as altering the powders we’re including to show it right into a tinted lotion, as an alternative of a basis.
Discovering Your Good Match
For the tint or shade, there are a number of choices. This recipe works very well with totally different pores and skin tones and is straightforward to regulate so it’s an ideal match. This tinted face lotion recipe makes use of:
- natural cocoa powder and bronze mica
- OR pure mineral make-up in your shade
I used a mixture of bronze mica powder and cocoa powder in mine. Observe that mica powder does have a very slight shimmer, so when you don’t need that, keep on with cocoa. You may additionally add in just a little cinnamon for heat undertones. Simply ensure your entire components are a really tremendous powder for clean software.
You’ll wish to begin with a small quantity of cocoa powder and mica (if utilizing), including just a little extra at a time to match your shade. It seems to be just a little darker within the jar than it does on pores and skin, so don’t panic if it seems to be too darkish!
And whilst you’re at it why not make some dry shampoo with the additional cocoa? 🙂
What Does It Really feel Like?
It relies upon considerably on the lotion you employ, nevertheless it ought to sink into pores and skin leaving it supple, moisturized, and evenly tinted. I discover this goes on clean and leaves behind a powdery end, like if I’d evenly dusted on sheer basis powder or bronzer.
Observe that it’s not heavy and it received’t cowl up zits, scars, or different blemishes.
The excellent news is, this makes use of wholesome elements that feed our pores and skin cells as an alternative of masking the difficulty and over time may help enhance pores and skin tone. Cocoa powder is stuffed with antioxidants and has just a little caffeine to perk up pores and skin. Plus rubbing chocolate-scented lotion in your face simply feels decadent!
Tinted Face Lotion With SPF?
Not like my selfmade basis powder, this recipe doesn’t have any solar safety in it. Whereas I attempt to have safe sun exposure day by day, there’s such a factor as an excessive amount of. In the event you wished so as to add just a little non-nano uncoated zinc oxide powder for SPF you possibly can. It should change the feel considerably although and supply heavier protection the extra you employ.
The Greatest Moisturizer for the Job
Making that is tremendous straightforward, particularly when you’re utilizing pre-made lotion. It may be so simple as two elements (lotion and cocoa powder or mineral make-up), or you will get just a little fancier with it.
You wish to select a lotion that works properly with the fragile pores and skin of the face. Heavier lotions, like physique butter, could be nice for all-over skincare, however are too heavy for facial pores and skin. Select one which works properly along with your pores and skin sort and isn’t too greasy or dry.
Tinted Face Lotion
This tinted face lotion goes on clean and dries to a powdery end. It is light-weight sufficient to put on day by day for a recent look.
Home made Lotion
Soften the shea butter, argan, or jojoba oil and emulsifying wax in a double boiler, stirring sometimes.
Take away from warmth and add the aloe and witch hazel, whisking vigorously till clean.
Let cool utterly. The fridge hastens the method.
Tinting Your Face Lotion
Combine the lotion (both selfmade OR retailer purchased) and the colours to get the specified shade. Begin with a tiny quantity of every shade powder and slowly work as much as get your required shade. You may wish to use both cocoa powder and mica OR mineral make-up, not each. I began with ¼ tsp every of cocoa powder and mica, then added 1/8 tsp extra at a time till it matched my pores and skin tone.
This may look darker within the jar than it does on pores and skin. To get your good shade add just a little extra shade at a time and check the colour in your internal arm.
Retailer in an air-tight container and use every day as desired for a smoothing/sharpening pure tinted lotion.
If utilizing pre-made lotion, it will have the shelf lifetime of the lotion you’re utilizing. If utilizing selfmade, it is going to last as long as a month (the rationale I make small batches).
