Ingredients:

Finished Loose Translucent Powder (get the recipe here)
3 ml Grape Seed Oil
2 ml Clear Deodorized Jojoba Oil
2.5 ml Evening Primrose Oil
1 ml Cyclomethicone (or Cyclo-Dimethicone)

Instructions:

Divide your loose translucent powder into three separate containers, each weighing approximately 1.25 oz. For each 1.25 oz. of loose powder you wish to make into a pressed powder, use graduated plastic transfer pipettes to measure out the oils and cyclomethicone and stir into the loose powder. Mix well with a fork, then press the powder firmly into the container you will be using the pressed powder in.

Next, place the container with your pressed powder onto a cookie sheet or air bake pan and place in oven. Turn the temperature of your oven to warm – the lowest possible setting – and “bake” your pressed powder for about 15-20 minutes. After 20 minutes, turn the oven off leaving the pressed powder inside.

Once the oven cools completely, remove the pressed powder and leave open for the next 24-48 hours to complete the drying process. After such time, your pressed powder is ready to use.

Quick Beauty Tips + Skincare Recipes

1. Refreshing Facial Mist. Fill a spritzer bottle with water and a few strips of julienned cucumber or sprigs of lavender and mint. Spritz on your face and body when out in the summer heat to keep cool and refreshed. You can also try this Cooling Mint Facial Mint Recipe that uses witch hazel in lieu of water, but requires a week’s waiting time to make a proper infusion before use.

2.) Use Honey as an Antiseptic. Raw, dark honey is a natural antiseptic that not only heals and hydrates, but also reduces inflammation and inhibits infection. Create a simple face mask with just honey and yogurt and take five minutes out of your long day to let it do its work.

3.) Exfoliate Skin with a Sugar Scrub. Exfoliate tired, rough skin with a sugar scrub. This quick recipe only requires three ingredients – all of which you  may already have lurking in your pantry! Prefer salt over sugar? Then concoct a three ingredient one time use salt scrub using salt, olive oil and a little lemon.

4.) Tone with Grapefruit. Tone your oily to combination skin with a natural skin care toner made from tea, grapefruit and witch hazel. Dry to normal skin? Use cucumber, milk and coconut water.

5.) Stimulate Your Hair and Scalp. Stimulate your hair and scalp with quick rinse made from carrot juice, fresh mint and warm water.

6.) Make a Cucumber Hair Drench. Three simple ingredients create a cucumber hair drench for revitalizing hair damaged by the sun’s rays and pool chlorine.

7.) Fight Breakouts with Apple Cider Vinegar. The high acid content of apple cider vinegar makes it perfect for fighting acne. Take ten minutes out of your day to steep a handful of clarifying parsley, then mix the cooled infusion in a spray bottle with a splash of vinegar and a few drops of tea tree oil.

8.) Freeze Aloe Vera Gel for Quick Sunburn Relief. Use an ice cube tray to freeze aloe vera into cubes for instant sunburn relief.
