Making a body lotion for men or for women is really not that hard… Many people think that making your own cosmetic products is rocket science but it is actually quite simple!
The good thing about making a body lotion yourself is that you can personalize it to your preference. You can choose your favorite scent, or use particular ingredients based on your skin type: dry, oily or regular.
Another great thing about homemade cosmetics is that you know exactly what ingredients you used, so you can avoid skin irritations or allergic reactions. But, you will need a bit of creativity, which is why I prefer buying a lotion online, saves me the trouble of making it myself J
Before going on a hunt for your ingredients, it is a good idea to make a list. A list will ensure you stay on the “right path” and chose only the ingredients you want. Some of the basic ingredients are emulsifying wax, oils, fragrance and a colorant. You can get these in your local store, but if you are looking for some special ingredients, hoping over to Amazon.com is not a bad idea.
Also, you will need some containers for preparation, mixing and storing. Make sure you wash these thoroughly to prevent any contamination…
As I`ve already stated, making a body lotion yourself is fairly easy when you know all the steps and have a good recipe. Here are the basic steps:
Once you`ve made your first lotion you will, of course, be proud of yourself and continue to use it until your jar is empty. What I would advise you, after the body lotion runs out, is to try a different recipe.
What I like to do is keep at least 3-4 different recipes at hand so I can compare each lotion and see which suits my skin the best!
