DIY Beauty: making Korean BB Cream

diy bb cream DIY Beauty: making Korean BB Cream

I’ve always wanted a BB cream but have stopped short of getting one because I wasn’t very keen on the long list of ingredients seen on the packaging. So of course I was elated when I finally had a chance to make my own BB cream during the DIY natural skin care workshop at Jayeon Miyin.  It was the most interesting of the three products we made that day, and it was also the most challenging.  Here I’ll share with you the recipe but unless you’re pretty well versed in making skin care products already, I’ll suggest you make this with some sort expert guidiance or attend the DIY workshop.

I’ve always wanted to learn more about creating my own cosmetics but didn’t know of any suitable workshops or courses that I can attend here in Singapore. But thanks to Fr3b, I finally attended a DIY workshop conducted by Jayeon Miyin and made my own BB cream as well as bath soaps and cleansing oil!  I spent three hour at the session and it was really well worth the time because in the end, I brought home natural skin care products specially customized for my skin type!

This is my second attempt making a homemade salt bath scrub and I had a lot of fun doing it! Not only that, it was so lovely to use! In my first unsuccessful attempt, I used rock salt which were too coarse for my skin. So the second time around, I tried making using Epsom Salt purchased at S$4.60 from Guardian Pharmacy and it turned out perfect!

Not everyone with acne likes the idea of using over the counter acne medications or prescription drugs as these may cause side effects for some people. In this case, natural treatments maybe a better alternative to the harsh chemical treatments as they present a more holistic approach to combat mild acne. So what are the natural remedies available?

Here are some suggestions on natural acne treatments based on what I’ve read from Acne Treatment Guru as well as what I already know.
