A lot of people think vegan equals expensive, especially when it comes to skincare. But not necessarily!
Unfortunately, not every beauty item is vegan so you need to be aware of what’s in them because they may have been tested on animals, or they may even contain animal products themselves.
The thing is, how often do you take the time to read the back of, for example, your shampoo bottle to see the list of ingredients used to make it? You might find not only that it was tested on animals but also a ton of nasty chemicals that are no good for your own body.
But how to make sure your products are vegan or cruelty-free? Well, there’s a way for you to know exactly what your products are made of: make them at home. That’s why here you will find a list of the best DIY beauty hacks from around the web.
Dry shampoo is suuuuper easy to make it yourself. You need to choose something that is good at absorbing oils. For example, cornflour, bicarb of soda or arrowroot.
