This helps absorb oils on the skin and helps hide blemishes. You can adjust the ingredients according to your skin tone.

• 2 tablespoon cornstarch
• 1 teaspoon cocoa 

Mix and lightly dust some on your face. If it’s too dark, add more cornstarch. If too light, add more cocoa. If it’s still not quite your color, add small amounts from this list: slippery elm bark powder, turmeric, cinnamon or ginger (all powdered). Store in an air-tight container.
