DIY Organic Face Powder

Wouldn't it be cool to know exactly what is going into some of your beauty products? I mean we all go to the store look and see if we like the shade and then we just plop down the money and pay for it. Well if you'd like to know a little bit more about what is going into your beauty products, here is a DIY organic face powder. And many of the ingredients can be found in your kitchen.

Here's what you need.
3 Tablespoons arrowroot
Arrowroot has been used for ages as the base for talc powders. So it works
1 1/2 teaspoons cacoa powder. Yep, it provides the color
Next 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
This also provides some color, and cinnamon is great for circulation.
The final ingredient is the one that you can't just go to the grocery store and pick up. You'll need to order it, but it's pretty inexpensive.
1 Tablespoon zinc oxide
Zinco Oxide will help protect you from the suns harmful rays. It acts as a sunscreen.
Now mix all of these ingredients together. Then test it on your skin. If you're happy with your shade then apply it like any other face powder. You can also use less of cacoa powder if you want a little lighter shade of powder.
See it's easy, and well you can decide on your shade of powder instead of somebody else.
