Planning cosmetics at home

Using cosmetic products, whether industrial or homemade, can not be made at random without knowing their effects and without knowing the actual condition of the skin.

It requires that those who have decided to use cosmetic preparations at home to become familiar with the basics of skin care and hygiene, skin needs, composition and properties of cosmetic ingredients. We are committed to help you make available through a series of structured information easy to navigate.

1. Skin diagnostics

2. Information depending on skin type

Depending on the type and condition skin care routine should be established. Here are some articles on the subject.

3. Establishing a routine for skin care

Based on information and articles featured on this blog you can outline a program of care and personal hygiene. Not necessarily, especially not at the beginning, to change all  your cosmetics with homemade ones. You first make a mask, a facial oil  or a toner. Maybe at first is too much information to be processed and to understand, but at the same time you may feel an impulse to prepare several compositions at once. Set your first care program and choose some compositions that can be prepared easily, without risk of error and are inexpensive. Along the way you can update the program, relying on the findings including the preparation and application of the first own compositions. Feel free to ask any question here on the blog and we will answer shortly.

4. The first recipe

Depending on the established routine, given the needs of skin and hair, you can prepare the first recipes. These can be exact recipes published by us or may be some adaptation. We recommend preparing for the start of low-difficulty compositions (recipes are marked with the indication “beginners”). If you want from the beginning to customize or adapt the recipes published by us, it is a must to consider the conditions under which it may replace, add or remove ingredients. We recommend that you have a notebook in which you write down the information needed for your care routine, and you write down the recipes prepared and newly formulated. Here you can note comments or questions. This allows you to prepare again a composition inside that you have prepared some time ago, you could reread some guidance and not least you can amuse awkwardness later on that we all do at the beginning.
