DIY: the growing desire to "do it yourself"!

Gebhard Sophie
Do It Yourself or "do it yourself" in French, is a practice that is spreading more and more. For the more creative among you, you certainly already know this concept by the manual side that it requires. But if at the base this activity appeals to the most creative among us, it is developing more and more and this for several reasons which I will tell you today in this article, because after all, BeautyMix is the 'essence of Do It Yourself (with a little help: the robot which makes all the difference!).

The Do It Yourself, in a few words ...

Do It Yourself has developed a lot in all areas: the making of clothes, decorations, household and maintenance products, beauty products, jewelry and many others.

In a few figures and according to a survey on "The second creative life of the French", 2 out of 3 French people practice DIY. 75% are followers for various motivations: to gain self-confidence (26%), to pass on their know-how (17%), to become actors in their life (14%), but also in order to save money, stand out , privilege the "Made In France", for the pleasure of creating ... 

What are the advantages of Do It Yourself?

  • Do it yourself : a first step towards autonomy! You have freedom in the choice of the product you want to make: choose your raw materials, your style ... You can manufacture this one according to your desires, according to what you are really looking for. Whether in terms of practicality or results, whatever the field (textiles, decoration, hygiene products, etc.), you are the master of your clothing.

Which brings me to point number two.

  • Satisfaction : Buying in a store is good, doing it yourself is better. Having the product of your creation in your hands, whether it has been guided by a manual in its preparation or that it comes straight out of your imagination, nothing is more satisfying than having your product with its personal touch and original: great pride. DIY can also be a good way to clear your head, to take time for yourself.

  • The economy : To achieve what you want, you must equip yourself with basic materials: raw materials, fabrics, accessories ... But doing it yourself will always cost you less because after all you only pay for the material for which you need and thus eliminate all additional costs due to labor, distribution network, communication, packaging ... You no longer need others to take care of you, DIY offers you independence financial and material. And even better if the chosen material is multifunctional. For example, at BeautyMix, we only offer about twenty'ingredients since some are present in different recipes.

  • Consume in a more conscious and eco-responsible way : This is especially true in the context of cosmetics, cleaning and household products. Indeed, industrial products are full of chemical ingredients. When you do it yourself, you can choose your ingredients and limit their number. So your product is healthier, free from chemicals and unnecessary ingredients. At BeautyMix, all of our ingredients are natural and organic . Each of our recipes contains very few ingredients, which are essential for the proper manufacture of these, guaranteeing you the desired result without having too long a list ...

  • Do It Yourself is also a fun activity, to do alone or with others. When you step into this practice, you join a big community and a big family who share ideas and advice. At BeautyMix, this community is present on our Facebook group "BeautyMix Addicts".

Fears to get you started? BeautyMix reassures you!

Many advantages to DIY but two fears particularly arise: the waste of time and the failure of the realization.

  • In fact, making it yourself can in some cases, such as sewing, take a little longer than a product already made.
