Recipes to make a natural translucent powder for the face

It is amazing how every day the number of recipes or methods for the creation of organic translucent powders increases. Not only are they simple to make and also very economical, they also provide the skin with an amount of nutrients that will keep it beautiful and cared for.

For example, cornstarch, or corn starch, is sometimes used in makeup because it offers great oil absorption. It’s not an agent that dries; it just absorbs what’s out there. So if you have dry skin, don’t be afraid.

Clay is often used in resorts for facials and spa treatments. It is wonderful in absorbing dirt, oil and bacteria, while being gentle with pores.

Some of the best known recipes are:

1. Recipe for translucent powder with cinnamon


  • 1 tablespoon ground organic cinnamon.
  • 1 teaspoon of ground organic cocoa.
  • 1 tablespoon nutmeg powder.
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch.
  • 15 drops of organic oil, with the aroma you prefer.
  • 1/4 tablespoon Vitamin E.


In a very clean container all the ingredients must be mixed very well, undoing the lumps that can be created with the fingers, then everything is placed in the mold where it is going to be stored and finally the mixture is imprisoned a little with the help of the back of a spoon.

2. Recipe with red clay


  • Very fine cornmeal or rice.
  • Red clay.


In the same container where the powder will be stored, the rice or corn flour should be added until it is almost completely filled, then a little red clay is added and everything is removed very well. It should not be too much as you want to get a translucent powder. It should be shaken very well before using it, and that’s it.

3. Recipe for translucent powder with cornstarch


  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch.
  • 1 small tablespoon of coffee or organic chocolate powder.
  • White glitter powder.


You must empty the tablespoons of cornstarch in the container or jar where you will have the powder, then add the chocolate or coffee powder as well as the glitter, put the lid and beat everything very well, then with the help of a teaspoon is crushed a little, until everything is compact.

These powders are used exactly like commercial ones, in addition to requiring the same type of care. They should be kept in cool places, used with brushes or clean sponges

It is also important that, as with any type of conventional makeup, it is removed at night before sleep, since despite being made with hypoallergenic materials and being totally ecological and natural, if they last too long on the skin, they can cause damage that is difficult to repair, or create allergic reactions.
