There’s a lot of things we love. Starbucks. Anything pumpkin flavored (duh!). Shopping. Online sales. Thanksgiving dinner (and the leftovers you get to enjoy in the following days). Justin Bieber’s new tattoo (sort of?). We could literally go on and on.

That being said, if we had to pick our greatest love, it would have to be beauty products, sorry mom. You can never really have enough beauty products. We have more than we can count, or fit in our beauty drawer, but we still keep buying something new on an almost daily basis. Not the smartest decision. But what can we do about it? It’s not like we can just give up beauty products cold turkey. Well, we have the perfect solution – DIY beauty products.

Not only are these DIY beauty projects easy and fun (think elementary school arts and crafts), they will also do wonders for your skin/makeup, and most importantly your wallet. These are our go-to’s.

DIY All Natural Teeth Whitener, recipe from Body Unburdened

What You’ll Need –

  • Aluminum free baking soda (whitens teeth & freshens your breath)
  • 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide (whitens teeth and helps fight bacteria)
  • Peppermint essential oil (provides flavor and also helps fight bacteria)

Instructions –

In a small container, mix 1 teaspoon of baking soda with 1 teaspoon of the hydrogen peroxide until you get a pasty consistency. Add a few drops of the essential oil. Dip your toothbrush in the paste and brush for 2 minutes before brushing with regular toothpaste.

Homemade Zit Zapper, recipe from Little House Living

What You’ll Need

  • Coconut Oil – is antibacterial and antifungal and helps with redness and puffiness
  • Tea Tree Oil – also antibacterial and antifungal, so it adds an extra kick
  • Empty lip balm tubes

Instructions –

  • On a stove, melt 1/8 cup of coconut oil
  • Add in a few (no more than 5) drops of tea tree oil
  • Mix the blend and use an eye drop dropper to add the mixture into the lip balm tubes
  • Store the tubes in the fridge so they don’t melt and use as needed.

Olive Oil & Honey Conditioner, recipe from Naturally Curly

What You’ll Need

  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • Mix the ingredients in a bowl until they make a paste

How To Use

  • Lightly shampoo and use a light condition if you need to detangle knots
  • Work the mixture through your hair from roots to tips
  • Wrap up in plastic and leave it for 10 to 15 minutes
  • Rinse

Uplifting Shower Bombs, recipe from PopSugar

What You’ll Need –

  • Small mixing bowl
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • ½ cup citric acid
  • ½ cup of cornstarch
  • 30 drops orange essential oil
  • 30 drops lemongrass essential oil
  • 30 drops lavender essential oil
  • Spray bottle filled with water
  • Silicone Mold

Instructions –

  • In a small mixing bowl, mix the baking soda, citric acid, and cornstarch. Be sure to break down any lumps
  • Slowly add the essential oils and mix. Give the mixture a spritz of water and stir. Continue spritzing and stirring until the mixture resembles wet sand.
  • Press the mixture into silicone molds, and let sit until dry (up to 8 hours). Once dry carefully pop out of molds.
