There are different ways of moisturizing your skin. You can use a lotion or a cream. Moisturizers are a product most women love the best as it helps keep those wrinkles at bay!
Lotions are easy to make as you only need a couple of ingredients!
A lotion that soaks straight into the skin can be made using Jojoba Oil and a few drops of your favorite essential oil.
If you prefer a cream, you need to go to a bit more trouble as you have a few more ingredients to mix together. You’ll need:
- 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon of shea butter
- 1 tablespoon of almond oil
- Few drops of your favorite essential oil.
To make it easier to mix them all together, you need to warm them gently. Don’t heat them directly. Melt them as you would chocolate. For example, sit them in a vessel that is sitting in a bowl of hot water, or a saucepan gently simmering.
You can also add beeswax which will harden your cream, if you prefer a harder cream. Simply add a tablespoon of beeswax to your mix.
Once you have perfected your cream, you can make a larger mixture. You’ll soon get to know how much essential oil you like to add too.
Your homemade cream can be used as your day cream or night time moisturizer.
