DIY Homemade Cosmetics (Rose Based)

            Homemade Astringent: Here is a homemade astringent preparation which is used to tone the skin and also to remove the last traces of greasiness and to close open pores.
4 Tbspn Rosemary,
juice of a Lemon,
juice of an Orange,
1 cup Rosewater, and
1/2 cup Witch Hazel.
Mix well all the above ingredients together in an air tight bottle. Let it stand for 3-4 days. Remember to shake the bottle frequently. This is a milder tonic for your skin and is not harmful as strong astringent lotions are. It does not dry out your skin or dehydrates it.
             Sun Tan Lotion: Sunburn is a very common complaint and so here is an easy method to prepare sun tan lotion at home.
5 Tbspn of powdered Sesame Seeds,
1 cup of Rosewater, and 
3 Tbspn of Surgical Spirit.
 In an air-tight bottle, mix together Sesame seeds powder and Rosewater. Keep for 1 full day shaking the bottle frequently. Now strain the solution and add Surgical Spirit in order to preserve it. It helps in cooling and soothing the affected area.
                Both these lotions are purely herbal preparations and are harmless but very effective at the same time.
