Have you considered the very fact that there might be more to taking care of your body besides the regular shower/bath, rinse, and lotion routine? Have you ever thought of rebranding yourself, taking care of your body, immersing yourself in some good bath, exfoliating properly and doing all the right things for your skin to get that glowing look? Pretty sure you have.
However, you have to think of how expensive it is to purchase skin care products and then those thoughts turn into bubbles and you grab a pin and pop every single one. Well, now you can revive those thoughts because there are some DIY body care ideas that you don’t have to break your bank for.
Using natural products that you can make yourself has more advantages than using store-bought products. Most stores bought products are usually filled with a lot of chemicals and carcinogens that could eventually damage your skin. Plus, we all know that they don’t have a lasting effect. A large number of people have clarified that once they stopped using these store-bought products, their skin kind of goes into a relapse.

These DIY body care ideas are not only helpful, but they are cost-effective and won’t take much of your time at all! Here are 10 of these amazing homemade body care products.
1. Lip Balm (homemade)
Sometimes the weather is dry and your lips are all dry and chapped. An effective lip balm will easily solve that problem for you. Of course, you can easily walk into a store and get any appealing lip balm for yourself but what if you made your lip balm by yourself? Especially since it is easy to make and you would be stretching your creative mind. All you have to do is follow the instructions, sit back, relax and enjoy a nice lip balm made by yourself and with natural products!
2. Lotion Bars
Homemade lotion bars are fun! Apart from the fact that you don’t have to spend a lot of money getting this from the nearby store, you can make it to your satisfaction with any of the ingredients that suit your skin. This wonderful lotion bar can be made in an hour (seems like a lot of time but it’s not) and you can make a lot to last you a long while within that hour. How fun is that!
3. Homemade Eczema Cream
Eczema can be damaging to the skin and can quickly turn from mild to wild in a short time. It can also lower a person’s self-esteem because it is very obvious. Right there on your skin. Sadly, you must have tried several eczema creams that seemed hopeful at first but as soon as you take a short break, they come swarming right back at you. Here is one DIY effective eczema cream that you can trust seeing as it is something you can make by yourself.
4. Coconut Oil Sunscreen
Coconut has a lot of benefits and yes, it can also be used as a sunscreen! How exciting! I’ll tell you how. Coconut oil as sunscreen blocks about 20% of UV rays when applied. This may seem too little but reapplying it makes it more effective plus you need the sun since it is quite beneficial to your health. You don’t need to block 100% of UV rays. This is one tip that will not only protect your skin but will also make your skin glow, keeping you young and beautiful!
