DIY Face Primer
Today's Therapy Thursday is a DIY Face Primer posted by Bustle. Primer is the best way to protect your skin from your makeup and provides a smooth base to apply products.
Ingredients 1/3 cup of aloe vera 1 teaspoon of coconut oil Mineral powder
Method First, peel the leaf from your aloe vera carefully (you don't want to lose all the juicy goodness) and place the contents in a bowl. Aloe is an excellent beauty ingredient because it's high in water and vitamin E.
Next, melt down extra virgin coconut oil in a microwave or on the stove top. Before showering or washing my hair, I take my coconut oil out of the fridge to allow it to start liquefying. I mean, what's the point in buying raw unprocessed coconut oil if I'm just going to nuke it in the microwave? You decide what works best for you and add your coconut oil to your aloe.
Recently, I've gotten into using a tinted primer, so add in your powdered foundation of choice and whisk your mix until you have an even consistency.
