Natural Body Care for Skin, Hair, Eyes, Teeth

We all want to be beautiful. Some of us are beautifully natural, and others of us are naturally beautiful. Whichever you are, there are always beauty tips to learn whereby we can improve on what we have been given.

I make my own natural body care products for a number of reasons. First of all because they are much cheaper than what you can buy, secondly, because I don't like putting harsh chemicals on my body, and finally because I always get a kick out of making something from scratch.

However there are a number of reasons why you should be making your own cosmetics and beauty products:

  • They are not tested on animals, and there are no animal ingredients
  • They are allergy free and environmentally safe
  • There are no CFCs and therefore ozone friendly
  • 100% biodegradable
  • petrochemical free, and safe for septic tanks

All the ingredients you will be using for these beauty recipes are common enough to be found in most kitchens.

Our natural body care page provides you with a wealth of information on how to make your own cosmetics and beauty products following our simple beauty recipes. This section provides easy recipes for making facial masks, body lotions, skin creams, natural hair dyes, homemade shampoos and conditioners, and other beauty products.

Why Natural Body Care?

Because from commercial shampoos and conditioners to make-up, they contain harsh chemicals that are linked to illnesses, including cancer, and are also poisonous to fish and other wildlife. Whatever we put on our faces and skin, our body absorbs 60% of that. So we really should make sure that whatever we put on our skins, is wholesome and good for us. 

Your Skin

With the skin being the largest organ of our bodies it is important to make sure that we treat it with care. Cleaning, toning and nourishing should be part of our normal beauty routines. This is especially so when we reach an age when the skin is no longer as elastic as is should be due to an aging skin.

However, whether you have a young skin that is prone to getting pimples and acne,  an aging skin that is developing wrinkles, or anything in between, we have covered all skin types, including those with sensitive skins.

Your Hair

Your hair is your crowning glory. If you have beautiful hair, and a good hair cut, psychologically you feel good about yourself. Diet also plays an important part in having good hair, as it does in having good skin. In this section you will find recipes for homemade conditioners, hair masks, shampoos and natural hair dyes.

Your Hands

Ragged or bitten nails down to the quick are ugly and unattractive. Well manicured hands are elegant and not hard to achieve with a routine of hand and nail care. There are treatments here for growing healthy nails, nourishing cuticles and your hands.

Your Feet

Feet are often ignored when it comes to natural body care. And yet looking after our feet should probably be one of the most important aspects of our beauty routine as they carry us for miles during our lifetime. Be kind to your feet and pamper them.

Your Eyes

Eyes are the window to the soul, so they say. However, there are those of us who have trouble with our eyes in that they may be tired and bloodshot, with puffy bags or just strained. There are natural home remedies that will sort out all of these problems.

Your Teeth

Yellow teeth, sore gums, bad breath? If these sound all too familiar then explore this page for a simple solution. We have recipes here too for making your own toothpaste and mouthwashes, as well as some tips on how to make sure that your gums remain healthy. This is even more important than having good teeth!

Your Body - Natural Weight Loss Diets

A healthier you is a slimmer you. Carrying too much weight is not good for you and losing weight successfully involves a  3 stage natural dieting program.
