When you are painting your body to glow in the dark, such as for a costume party, Halloween or a theatrical production, skip store-bought paints that may contain harsh chemical ingredients, especially for those with sensitive skin types. Make your own glow in the dark body paint at home using a few ingredients that are gentle on the skin.

Things You'll Need

  • Bowl
  • 4 tbsp. corn starch
  • 2 tbsp. cold cream
  • Spoon
  • 2 tbsp. glow in the dark micro powder
  • Sealable container

Place a bowl onto a flat surface, and pour in 4 tablespoons of corn starch.

Add 2 tablespoons of cold cream into the corn starch, and stir the mixture with a spoon for 5 minutes to combine the ingredients completely. Select cold cream that is unscented if you have sensitive skin.

Add 2 tablespoons of water and 2 tablespoons of glow in the dark micro powder into the mixture, then stir the mixture again for an additional 5 minutes.

Pour the homemade glow in the dark body paint into a sealable container, and store it in the refrigerator until use.

Tips & Warnings

  • Add food coloring to the handmade glow in the dark body paint to color the paint, if desired.
