From homemade cereal and pudding cups to DIY makeup and body scrubs, making things ourselves takes more time, more effort, and even learning new skills. It's worth every moment as you begin to understand that what goes on your body also goes in it. I heard somewhere that it only takes 26 seconds for anything you put on your skin to be absorbed into your bloodstream. So lotions, soaps, makeup, perfume... It's all making its way inside. That makes you think, doesn’t it?
