For those who’ve been studying Wellness Mama for lengthy, you understand that I’m not a fan of utilizing chemical compounds that I can’t pronounce to scrub my home or rubbing them on my face, the place they are often absorbed in just some seconds.
The logical extension of avoiding dangerous chemical compounds is discovering pure choices for private care merchandise and make-up. I made my very own shampoo and toothpaste (and began an organization to share these recipes with others) however discovering pure (and reasonably priced) make-up choices that I beloved was harder.
I found out a liquid basis recipe that gives nice protection for zits and pores and skin discoloration, however since I don’t put on make-up day-after-day. Finally I wished a light-weight tinted face lotion that could possibly be used each day for a tiny bit colour, with out wanting like I used to be carrying make-up in any respect.
My answer? This lighter model of a liquid basis, with additional moisturizing energy.
Methods to Make Tinted Face Lotion or Moisturizer (Like BB Cream)
As I discussed, this tinted face lotion is just like pure basis however thinner and with much less protection. Many firms name it magnificence balm or BB cream. It doubles as a pure facial moisturizer.
With its slight bronzing impact, I can use it each day but it surely by no means seems or seems like make-up. It goes on easy and dries to a powdery easy end.
I used a store-bought lotion on this recipe as a result of it’s what I had available. For those who don’t have already got a great face lotion you need to use the home made 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 Excellent Match
For the tint or colour, there are a number of choices. This recipe works very well with completely different pores and skin tones and is simple 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 really slight shimmer, so in the event you don’t need that, keep on with cocoa. You possibly can additionally add in just a little cinnamon for heat undertones. Simply make certain your entire components are a really effective powder for easy software.
You’ll need 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 just a little darker within the jar than it does on pores and skin, so don’t panic if it seems 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, but it surely ought to sink into pores and skin leaving it supple, moisturized, and calmly tinted. I discover this goes on easy and leaves behind a powdery end, like if I’d calmly 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 problem and over time might help enhance pores and skin tone. Cocoa powder is filled 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 home made basis powder, this recipe doesn’t have any solar safety in it. Whereas I attempt to have secure solar publicity day-after-day, there may be such a factor as an excessive amount of. For those who wished so as to add just a little non-nano uncoated zinc oxide powder for SPF you possibly can. It can change the feel considerably although and supply heavier protection the extra you employ.
The Greatest Moisturizer for the Job
Making that is tremendous simple, particularly in the event 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 need to select a lotion that works properly with the fragile pores and skin of the face. Heavier lotions, like physique butter, will be nice for all-over skincare, however are too heavy for facial pores and skin. Select one which works properly together with your pores and skin kind and isn’t too greasy or dry.
