Your campus, Your story
In the beauty world, it’s more important than ever to look good and stay healthy – but with expensive cosmetics and beauty products, this has become near impossible, especially for college students.
Instead of using expensive products that are often chemical-ridden, try these nine all-natural products that will keep you healthy and your wallet happy.
Mix the ingredients to make a paste and apply it to your toothbrush. Brush your teeth thoroughly with the paste, but be sure not to ingest it. You can use this DIY life-saver as often as once a week, or just for special occasions when you may need that extra glimmer.
Dump the activated charcoal into a small, clean bowl. Dip an eyeliner brush into the water and then dip the brush into the bowl with the activated charcoal. Sweep on as you would regular eyeliner. You can even replace the water for aloe gel for a stronger hold.
Berry Lip Stain
Mash the blackberries, raspberry and pomegranate seeds with the back of a spoon in a small bowl. Pour the olive oil into the bowl and stir everything together. Once you’re done stirring, drain the liquid from the mixture into a container. Use your fingertips, Q-tips or a lip brush for application. Since this is made out of fruit, it is only good for a few days, but you can always refrigerate to increase its longevity. Tasty and practical? You can’t go wrong with this homemade concoction.
The secret ingredient to most expensive lip plumper is cinnamon oil. Add seven-10 drops of this to a regular drug store lip gloss. Since the cinnamon oil is very powerful, don’t add more drops than suggested. Mix evenly and apply to get the luscious lips you’ve always wanted.
Blotting paper helps to eliminate shine and can help make your face feel fresh. Cut the tissue or rice paper into tiny sheets and store them in a small, dry container. Tissue paper or rice paper do the job equally as well because they are both thin enough to absorb oil with a quick dab.
Handmade deodorant might seem odd, but as more and more people prefer a natural deodorant, the demand for this homemade product has sky rocketed. Most deodorants contain aluminum compounds, which reduce sweat and body odor, but have been linked to diseases. To avoid this, try our homemade version.
Mix the cornstarch with the baking soda and add your favorite essential oils if you want your deodorant to be scented. Add coconut oil and a few drops of vitamin E oil to soften skin. Finally, blend everything together until you get a thick mix. Take the mix and pack it into an old deodorant case.
Mix together the cocoa powder and the powdered sugar to create a desired shade. Test the shade out by sweeping it over the back of your hand; then apply lightly and evenly to skin.
Combine all the ingredients in a dark glass bottle (sunlight may damage some oil types). Apply a small amount to damp hair before blow-drying. You can also apply a very small amount to dry hair for added shine and smoothness. Shake well before each use.
Stress Relief Lotion
This lotion is perfect for college students who spend the majority of their time stressed out. Mix the oils together and let them sit for a few days to relax. Add the oils to your unscented lotion and shake well for the most inexpensive and effective stress relief you can get.
