Over the last few years i have started to make my own diy skin creams after spending a lot and getting little from the shops. The results i have got from doing this are great. A better complexion and less lines. I regularly use vitamin c and other antioxidants in my creams. The benefits of doing this are that it costs less, gives better results and you can keep out stuff you dont want in your skin (like some preservatives they use). It seems more common for people to diy in the US. Does anybody else use this sort of stuff?
Probably one of the only things i buy is jojoba oil as it does a good job of moisturising my skin. I recently made a hyaluronic acid moisturiser though (just water and hyaluronic acid powder) and it feels great.
