By now you probably know that SkinEssentialActives is the site from which I buy the majority of my DIY skincare ingredients because the service and quality of ingredients are excellent.
Well, Natasha, the owner of SEA, has started her own blog, and I’m thoroughly addicted. What can I say? She’s a genius. There’s nothing she doesn’t know about putting together serums, peels, moisturisers and a host of other skincare.
The SEA blog contains tutorials and really useful information for DIY skincare makers, and everything is set out with clear photos and instructions.
I was fed up with my dry skin last night, so after I finished writing for the day I made an antioxidant moisturiser based on the base lotion/ creme recipe Natasha demonstrated on her blog. Instead of the B5 used in the recipe, I added CoQ10 and Grapeseed Extract, and my skin loves it!
If you’re into DIY Skincare, I strongly encourage you to have a look. I’ve found the batch size calculator super handy for converting percentages to grams quickly, and the information on acids and pH is really useful too.
