Making your own skincare products can appeal for all sorts of reasons. Perhaps you don´t like to expose your skin to the chemicals in commercial products, you have sensitive skin, or you simply like the idea of making your own skincare products. There are lots of books available on the subject, so I´ve picked out just a few on how to make your own skincare products …

5 Making Natural Liquid Soaps

Making Natural Liquid SoapsPrice: $10.17 at amazon.com

I´m allergic to most soaps, and liquid soaps are a definite no-go for me! In fact, most shampoos and shower gels are out of the question as well. So this book sounds just what I´m looking for – no more hunting for that elusive product that I can use, and scrutinising labels!

6 The Natural Soap Chef

From what I´ve read about soap-making, it is rather like cooking! So the title of this book seems really appropriate. You can cook up lots of ´tasty´ recipes and make fabulously fruity and flavoursome soaps – they would make perfect gifts as well.

8 Creating a Herbal Bodycare Business

Creating a Herbal Bodycare BusinessPrice: $11.77 at amazon.com

Once you´ve tried making your own skincare products, you may be totally bitten by the bug. If that´s the case, then why not think about starting a small business? Lots of people have begun by making organic skincare for their own use, and ended up turning it into a lucrative enterprise.

If you´ve been wondering how to make your own skincare products, then buying a book is a great way to start. Remember that without the preservatives, they won´t last as long, so keep them in the fridge (well labelled!) and only make enough to last a short time. Have you ever tried making your own skincare products, and how did your skin benefit?
