In the event you’ve been studying Wellness Mama for lengthy, that I’m not a fan of using chemicals that I can’t pronounce to clean my house or rubbing them on my face, the place they are often absorbed in only a few seconds.
The logical extension of avoiding dangerous chemical substances is discovering pure choices for private care merchandise and make-up. I made my very own shampoo and toothpaste (and began a company to share these recipes with others) however discovering pure (and inexpensive) make-up choices that I cherished was harder.
I found out a liquid foundation recipe that gives nice protection for zits and pores and skin discoloration, however since I don’t put on make-up daily. In the end I wished a light-weight tinted face lotion that might be used day by day for a tiny bit colour, with out trying like I used to be carrying make-up in any respect.
My answer? This lighter model of a liquid basis, with further moisturizing energy.

As I discussed, this tinted face lotion is just like pure basis however thinner and with much less protection. Many corporations name it magnificence balm or BB cream. It doubles as a pure facial moisturizer.
With its slight bronzing impact, I can use it day by day however it by no means appears to be like or appears like make-up. It goes on clean and dries to a powdery clean end.
I used a store-bought lotion on this recipe as a result of it’s what I had available. In the event you don’t have already got a superb face lotion you should utilize the selfmade face lotion from this recipe. It’s so simple as altering the powders we’re including to show it right into a tinted lotion, as an alternative of a basis.
Discovering Your Excellent Match

- natural cocoa powder and bronze mica
- OR pure mineral make-up in your shade
I used a mixture of bronze mica powder and cocoa powder in mine. Notice that mica powder does have a very slight shimmer, so when you don’t need that, keep on with cocoa. You would additionally add in just a little cinnamon for heat undertones. Simply make sure your whole components are a really nice powder for clean software.
You’ll wish to begin with a small quantity of cocoa powder and mica (if utilizing), including just a little extra at a time to match your shade. It appears to be like just a little darker within the jar than it does on pores and skin, so don’t panic if it appears to be like too darkish!
And whilst you’re at it why not make some dry shampoo with the additional cocoa? ?

Notice that it’s not heavy and it received’t cowl up zits, scars, or different blemishes.
The excellent news is, this makes use of wholesome substances that feed our pores and skin cells as an alternative of masking the problem and over time will help enhance pores and skin tone. Cocoa powder is filled with antioxidants and has just a little caffeine to perk up pores and skin. Plus rubbing chocolate-scented lotion in your face simply feels decadent!

In contrast to my selfmade basis powder, this recipe doesn’t have any solar safety in it. Whereas I attempt to have safe sun exposure daily, there may be such a factor as an excessive amount of. In the event you wished so as to add just a little non-nano uncoated zinc oxide powder for SPF you may. It’ll change the feel considerably although and supply heavier protection the extra you utilize.

Select one which works nicely together with your pores and skin kind and isn’t too greasy or dry.
Tinted Face Lotion

Combine the lotion (both selfmade OR retailer purchased) and the colours to get the specified shade. Begin with a tiny quantity of every colour powder and slowly work as much as get your required shade. You may wish to use both cocoa powder and mica OR mineral make-up, not each. I began with ¼ tsp every of cocoa powder and mica, then added 1/8 tsp extra at a time till it matched my pores and skin tone.
It will look darker within the jar than it does on pores and skin. To get your good shade add just a little extra colour at a time and take a look at the colour in your inside arm.
Retailer in an air-tight container and use day by day as desired for a smoothing/sharpening pure tinted lotion.
