But gathering the mountain of products one might want to create the perfect self-care system can really add up cost-wise. These products can be high in price and low in quantity.

That’s why investing in creating your own homemade beauty products can be such a genius idea. You can save money and know exactly what you’re putting on your skin or in your hair. Read on for our four essential items (and one to skip).

1. Apple Cider Vinegar:

Regardless of use, you should always have some apple cider vinegar around your home. It’s versatile and has so many different uses. In the realm of self-care, it’s great at ridding the body of acne, dandruff, and a wealth of skin and hair problems.

It’s antibacterial and antiseptic, and as such is an essential ingredient to have on hand for all your homemade concoctions.

2. Raw Honey:

Perfect to sweeten your coffee with, but also perfect for your skin. Raw honey can help lock in moisture in your skin and does so without clogging up your pores.

If you have dry, flaky, or overall sensitive skin, applying a little honey can help clear up your complexion. Organic honey even has the ability to help limit the effect of season allergies.

3. Witch Hazel:

Witch Hazel

Despite the zany name, witch hazel is actually nourishing and a real miracle product. Outside of helping heal sensitive skin or acne, it’s one of the best things you can apply to bumps, cuts, or scratches for quick healing.

You can use it solo as toner or mix it with other ingredients to make the perfect homemade skin product. You can even make your own cosmetic labels and name your personal creation.

4. Clay:

Clay

Clay facemasks and skin products are as old as time. But that just goes to show how tired and true clay-based skincare is. Cosmetic clay products can also do a great job of healing bug bites and other such cosmetic nightmares.

It’s also a natural exfoliant and can have you looking shiny and new after use. Make a face mask or apply to needy areas for enviable results.

To Avoid: Vitamin A:

If you’re surprised that you should be avoiding any kind of vitamin, you’re not alone. But vitamin A has a number of potential negative side effects you should be aware of.

Retinol and Vitamin A actually have the potential to damage DNA. It can also speed the growth of skin issues or even tumors.  Avoid products that have a large amount of vitamin A heavy retinol to avoid undue damage to skin or body.
