When spring hits, I always feel the need to add a little sun-kissed color to my face. I’m naturally pale and don’t have the ability to tan in the slightest, but I think that any shade of skin can get a refreshing pick-me-up from a nice bronzing powder! Instead of searching around for the best bronzer out there, I decided to make my own!
I’ve always loved the beauty tip that says, “If you wouldn’t eat it, don’t put it on your skin,” and this recipe caters perfectly to that advice. An added bonus: It smells absolutely incredible.
What you need:
(If you can, try to get all organic ingredients – they’ll be the best for your skin.)
An empty, sealable container
What you do:
Mix the ingredients together – it’s as simple as that! Play around with different amounts of each to reach your desired color. If the color is too light, add more cocoa powder. If you want more of a glow, add more cinnamon. :) I was a little nervous about using cinnamon at first because I have very sensitive skin, but my skin is totally fine with it!
Once the ingredients are mixed, fill your empty container with the bronzer. I found this little glass jar at a flea market a while ago, and this was the perfect excuse to finally use it!
I love that this bronzer is totally portable and has no expiration date — two things that you don’t find in all homemade beauty products. You can just throw it in your makeup bag and take it with you for the day! Simple, natural, and delicious.
