Our skin is one of our most precious organ. And for that reason, we need to care about our skin. I know that most of you are using commercial skin care products. However, these products are full of chemical ingredients that are actually harmful for your skin. So, I will give you this perfect homemade face lotion to hydrate your skin.
You will regret ever using those commercial products. And love this excellent natural DIY face lotion. Before my own homemade face lotion recipe, I will tell you what some of the harmful ingredients in chemical skin care products like face lotions are.
Fragrances are generally the most harmful content of commercial skin care product. Generally, cosmetic brands must list the ingredient of their skin care products. However, when it is about fragrances or perfume, they can omit this as trademark or trade secret. What does this mean? This means that we have no idea what is inside those fragrances. And we can never be sure about it. We will replace these perfumes in commercial skin care products with natural ingredients. And this is what makes our homemade face lotion perfect for everyone.
Other components you should avoid in your skin care are sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) and sodium laurate sulphate (SLES). And as you can guess, our amazingly natural face lotion will not have any trace of these harmful ingredients.
