Hello, there! I’m thrilled you decided to give your skin a chance and join the WfN community! You can find numerous helpful articles on skincare issues, along with hundreds of DIY recipes for all levels of experience and issues! But navigating the website can be tricky so I’ve created a little guide to help you get started!
WE'LL TALK ABOUT...
TACKLING SKIN PROBLEMS WITH KNOWLEDGE
There are four major areas when it comes to skincare issues that I’ve been dealing with: anti-aging, skin-tightening, stretch marks and scars, and acne-prone and oily skin. These have been my primary concern because I struggle with these same issues; some I’ve managed to minimize, others continue to be a struggle (yeah, those wrinkles!).
Because I strive to heal my skin naturally and with products that I know, understand (and make), and trust, I have compiled a number of detailed guides to help you deal with your skin issues too! If you’re not a DIYer, you can find appropriate products listed in the articles below; the ones I’ve tried and tested. If you’re a DIYer and want to make them yourself, see the next section where I share DIY recipes that target specific skin issues.

RECIPE SERIES: BUDGET-FRIENDLY APPROACH TO DIY
Homemade skin care can be an expensive hobby if you’re completely new to it. That’s why I decided to create a helpful guide that would enable you to create skincare recipes on a budget.
How does it work? Each series consists of a couple of recipes (normally 6) that are all made with the same ingredients. that way you save money (as you’re not buying something you won’t really use), learn into more detail how different ingredients work, and test things you otherwise may not have the courage or will to do!
What’s more, you can get a complete series with recipes, a shopping guide, and detailed tips on ingredients, substitutions, and bonus recipes on my Buy Me Coffee account for a smallish fee. That way, you get a detailed insight into the ingredients we’re using and access to a private WfN page with questions, queries, and comments from other DIYers!
Some of the recipes from the series include:
- Lotion body butter bars
- Shower steamers
- Hemp and shea creamy cleansing balm
- Gentle geranium facial moisturizer
Since I have some gentlemen that visit this blog regularly, it is only right that part of it is dedicated to you, guys!
