Sweets – Really Helpful in Creating Our Own Cosmetics
You may wonder why I am so obsessed with all these natural ingredients, homemade recipes for beauty and so on. Well, let me tell you where it started. Last year I was very short on money at a certain time, and, due to my passion and job I wanted to stay up-to-date when talking about makeup, cosmetic products, body lotions, creams, body butters and all the other beauty products that come to mind. So, I started reading a lot about the power of the natural ingredients.
Sweets, ok, maybe not the best recommendation when it comes to diet, but, here they are, helping us create delicious cosmetic products. Easy to make and even more easy to use.
