Whilst we think of our families and the most vulnerable in our society, we lock ourselves away in our homes for the foreseeable future. This is an incredible thing to do for our community and we here at Aequem want to provide you with loads of inspiration and things you can do from the comfort of your own home! Time to make some homemade beauty!!

Fortunately, there are natural remedies for pretty much all beauty products and rumour has it, most are more effective than their chemically inclined counterparts. The best part is you don’t need a million and one ingredients to get started, it can be a simple as you want!
