Pros and cons of DIY skincare

When you create your own DIY skincare, it’s easy to customize it to your skin type and needs, targeting what you want to achieve. It’s not a product made for every top model, it’s a product made specifically just for you! 

DIY skincare products are quick, affordable and easy to make but some do not give results that fast or at all.

Remember most of these are trial and luck products especially if you`re just getting started, so they may work on one person but not on the next.

Most DIY skincare products do not have a long “shelf” life. When making your own, make just enough to last you about two months max.

Most DIY only have a shelf life of about 3 months as they are made without preservatives as what you`ll buy in stores.

Preservatives are not always “bad” it`s used in almost all everyday products to prolong the life of products and you do not need this when making your own DIY skincare.

Now having said all that, making your DIY beauty products may sound great, but can you really tell how clean your product is?

DIY beauty products may require antioxidants to keep them stable, I`m really not sure how you`re going to measure this to make sure it’s the correct amount you need.

Some DIY skincare products need caution

Although widely used, and if I`m right any girl out there has at one point or the other tried one of these, you should take care when using any or just avoid them altogether.

  • Eggwhite-salmonella bacteria risk
  • Sugar-damages skin barries
  • Toothpaste-Causes your skin to dry out
  • Lemon juice–pH acidic

I`m not trying to say I do not use them, I do but……………
