It seems only natural (pun intended) that an increased fascination with “clean beauty” and the things we put on our bodies echoes the growing interest around food, nutrition, and the things we put in our bodies. And it turns out that they’re not completely mutually exclusive.
While studies regarding the exposure to certain worrisome compounds remain conflicted, we do know that some products can penetrate the skin. And just like within our food supply, there are some potentially hazardous compounds frequently used in beauty and personal care products that can pose a threat to our bodies and the environment. Given that the skin is the largest organ on the human body, and that most of us use upwards of ten or more personal care products in a day – starting with shampoo and wrapping up with toothpaste – the growing attention is warranted.
In efforts to clean up your beauty routine, you can make natural beauty products at home with a NutriBullet. Not only do you know what you’re putting in each concoction, but each ingredient is so pure, you could eat it (although we don’t recommend it)!
5 DIY Beauty Products to Make in Your NutriBullet
We recommend using each beauty product immediately after making and storing any leftover you may have (such as with the body scrub or face mist) in the fridge and using within seven days.
