DIY: Translucent face powder

Hello everyone!
Today's post is a simple recipe for translucent face powder!  Not only is it easy to make, but it also gives your skin a break from all the toxins and chemicals found in commercial face powders!  The ingredients are items that you probably already have in your kitchen.

This powder is very effective at mattifying the skin and setting your make-up and because it’s made with skin-loving ingredients, it will also nourish your skin!  Here’s how you make it:
  • Arrowroot powder: this powder is made from dehydrated and ground arrowroot, which is known to have skin-smoothing effects.  
  • Corn flour (cornstarch): absorbs excess oil, helping to give your skin a matte finish
  • Cocoa powder: has anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which help to firm and renew your skin
All three ingredients can be found at the cooking and baking supply section at the store!

  1. Combine 2 tablespoons of arrowroot powder and 2 teaspoons of corn flour in a bowl.
  2. Add in a little cocoa powder until it reaches a shade similar to your own natural skin tone.  This is a translucent powder, so I suggest you only use between ½ and 2 teaspoons.
  3. Mix thoroughly.
You may keep your powder for up to six months in a sealable container.

really love this DIY loose powder and I'm pretty sure you'll love it too!
