Fuck Clean & Clear! An adventure in DIY skincare products

posted by ebean

Inspired by a recent discussion with some serious skincare specialists, I’ve decided to embark on a quest to create my own skincare products.  Your skin is your biggest organ, so why would you put something you couldn’t eat on it?

On the to-do list:
What I think I need and why I think I need it…

1.  Astringent – removes surface oils and bacteria, spot treatment on blemish, and aftercare if you must pop
2.  Face wash – cleans off the icky grime of city living and sweat
3.  Exfoliate – gets rid of dead skin, helping to prevent blemishes
4.  Face mask – deep pore cleansing
5.  Face lotion – hydrates and protects skin
6.  Night cream – seems like a really good idea

I’m going to be realistic.  I won’t be able to create everything at home, and in such cases, I’m on the hunt for a non-yucky store bought product.

Step 1:  Find recipes
