My son is very keen on face paint and temporary tattoos. Ever since he had them removed before the start of school, he's been bugging me about it. But, I remember reading this article about unsafe face paints on the market. It's very discerning and it got me looking for natural alternatives. I came across a few recipes in The Green Beauty Guide and thought I'd give it a go!
This was a great DIY for my son with all the colours and mixing, plus he got to paste them on his face. We experimented with aloe vera gel (that I had purchased for our bout of HFMD) and five natural food colouring agents - tumeric (yellow), cocoa (brown), corn starch (white), lettuce (green) and red yeast rice (red).
