Course details

Brief Description:

Join us in this fun workshop to make high-quality Natural Skin Care! You will make lip balms, a moisturising Face cream and use some kitchen ingredients to make nourishing all natural face masks.

The lip balms are made from all-natural ingredients – bees wax, cocoa butter, almond oil and some Aromatherapy Essential oils. You will see the magic transformation of these simple ingredients into high-end lip balms, moisturising, healing and soothing, as well as smelling divine!

Learn which vegetable oils and Aromatherapy essential oils can enhance your own skin type. You can choose from a selection of 2 or 3 ready-made cream bases and by adding your very own choice of highly effective active ingredients you create your very own bespoke face cream! There will be a choice of active ingredients: essential oils, vegetable oils and a cucumber extract.

Finally the class will look at some kitchen ingredients which can all be used to make natural skin care face masks. Using a selection of these ingredients you will create a choice of 2 or 3 face masks and apply it there and then. After the natural face mask has done its magic, you’ll be able to apply your very own bespoke face cream creation!

An active ingredient you will use in this course is cucumber glycerol extract, this ingredient can improve your complexion by helping to reduce freckles and tightening open pores. The astringent action of this extract can help to firm the skin and counter signs of ageing. Cucumber extract can reduce puffiness and the appearance of dark circles under the eyes. It also soothes irritated skin and keeps the skin moisturised and revitalised. It is without doubt a fantastic addition to your tailormade face cream!
