DIY Skincare Resources

Hi all! I have a few DIY skincare resources to recommend to you today.

The first is the Skin Essentials Active blog, which is excellent for the basics of DIY skincare. Make a coffee and have a read!

Second, I have two excellent forums to recommend to you. The first is the Skin Essentials Active forum, and the second is the Skin Care Boards forum. I am signed up to both, and I find the information top notch. The girls there really know what they are talking about, and will give you amazing skin and save you a tonne of cash. It may seem daunting at first, but they are really supportive and will talk you through anything you need to know. They will never look down on you for asking questions!

If you want a simple place to start with DIY skincare, why not try this simple wash-off OCM cleanser. Seriously, it beats anything on the market and is a joy for the skin. No need to double cleanser, and it removes all my ZnO sunscreen,  Waterproof Covergirl Lashblast Mascara, and everything else, in one go. It will leave your skin in top condition and finally rid you of all those annoying nose blackheads! The best part is that it is so simple to throw together. Literally takes me two minutes (and I have been known to mix some cleanser in the mornings before work!).

Finally, I would also like to recommend Barefaced Truth – a website run by two highly regarded dermatologists who are very keen to inform the general public about the truth behind ageing skin. Also, if you want a rundown of a particular active, head over the Smart Skin Care. This site will give you a brief explanation of both popular and obscure actives.

Good luck on your DIY skincare journey 🙂

    Gosh! while I was writing on your blog (rose sunscreen) I was thinking how to get the ZnO sunscreen off my face. Thanks for the great tips. I guess I will make the OCM cleanser. I have been using the Apricot scrubs to remove blackheads but not so good results.

    @Dramaquin That OCM cleanser is a dream. It will dissolve everything in one go, and it’s so easy to make! Yeah, those Apricot scrubs are harsh 🙁
