If you’ve read any of my other posts, I’m sure you’ve gathered that I love DIYs, but only if they are
simple and easy. These 5 Eco-Friendly Beauty Tips are my favorite beauty DIYs because they are
just that– so simple to use and friendly on our environment.

5 Eco-Friendly Beauty Tips:
Dry Shampoo Made with Cornstarch– Cornstarch makes an excellent dry shampoo. Just sprinkle it in your hair and comb it through. Unlike baby or talcum powder, which can also be used as a DIY dry shampoo, it’s completely unscented and most people probably already keep it in their kitchen. It also feels lighter and silkier than talcum powder. It easily and quickly absorbs excess oil. I put mine in a glass condiment shaker and keep it in the medicine cabinet in the bathroom.
Deep Conditioner Made with Coconut Oil– Coconut oil is a simple and inexpensive deep conditioner for your hair. Just put it in your hair (avoiding roots if you have oily hair) before going to bed for the night. I put an old towel on my pillow to protect it. Wash the coconut oil out in the morning with two rounds of shampoo.

Shaving Gel Made with Aloe Vera– Aloe Vera is ideal for use as a shaving gel. Not only is it chemical free and simple to use, it’s exceptionally moisturizing. Its anti-bacterial properties help with nicks and cuts. Many people probably have an Aloe Vera plant at home for use as a topical for minor burns and skin irritations. I planted some outside years ago and they spread and spread if you let them—which is good because it provides a continual supply of shaving gel!
Toner/Cleanser Made with Rosewater- I love Rosewater because it is so versatile. I use it as a makeup remover, a cleanser, a toner, or a face mist. Rose water can also be used as a hair rinse, a bath water additive, a body splash, or a linen spray. This beauty potion has so many different uses and has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Rosewater is readily available in stores. One of my favorite brands is Heritage Store which you can buy here on Amazon. Or check out my post here to make your own Rosewater.

Makeup Remover Wipes Made with Cloth Pieces- This is one of my favorite beauty DIYs. I use cut up pieces of cloth from my kid’s old baby clothes or other absorbent material I can recycle in place of cotton balls or makeup remover wipes. I use them with baby oil to remove eye makeup or to apply Micellar water. See my post here to make your own DIY face wipes. I also use them to wipe makeup off my hands or clean up small makeup spills.
Not only are these beauty DIYs simple and easy, they’re also versatile and inexpensive. You probably
already have most of them in your cupboards at home. Give these 5 Eco-Friendly Beauty Tips a try
and you won’t be disappointed!

Coconut Oil is the best for deep conditioning but everyone doesn’t choose it. But yes, I am one of them who loves coconut oil for hair. Thanks for sharing.
These are so good. I’ve never heard of cornstarch but it makes so much sense.
Unfortunately my husband is allergic to rose water so I can’t use it.
I am a big fan of coconut oil for hair masks. Great ideas all.
I love the DIY rose water! Rose water is one of my favorite beauty products and I would love to try to make my own!
