I usually don’t wear much make up, but when I do I like to use a loose powder or mineral powder foundation. The least expensive powder foundation that I have seen so far sells for about $6 per tiny jar. Most of them sell for $10 and up and are full of ingredients I can’t even pronounce. Today I decided to create my own foundation powder. These are the ingredients:
Cornstarch or Arrowroot Powder
Bentonite Clay (optional)
Go in your pantry and find some cornstarch and cocoa powder. Mix the ingredients together until you have the right color powder for your skin tone. Store it in a small, clean container. You can also add Bentonite clay if you have it on hand. Bentonite clay is great because it rids the body of toxins. Cocoa powder is full of antioxidants which is also good for your skin. You can also add cinnamon to create a bronzer.
I have to say that I like my new foundation powder. It feels very light on my skin and I noticed that my skin was shine free for about five hours. The powder contains no chemicals and is actually good for your skin.
