Face creams are very beneficial for your skin and help you prevent the early signs of aging. Naturally, it can be said that the most important benefit is the fact that they help you actively fight against wrinkles.
Now, since no one likes having wrinkles, it goes without saying why you should be using face cream right now – no matter how young you feel. The main downside of relying on a purchased cream, however, is the fact that you can almost never know what you’re actually putting on your face.
This is why, in the following lines, we’ll show you five of the best DIY face cream recipes that you can tackle in your own home, with little investment – but with great results!
Anti-Aging Face Cream
For this one, you’ll need ¼ cup of almond oil, roughly 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 2 tablespoons of beeswax, half a spoon of vitamin E oil, 1 tablespoon of shea butter, and some essential oils that you like – for a better fragrance overall.
The best way to make any DIY face cream is to bring the ingredients to their melting point. This can be done by placing them in a jar and then placing that jar in a pot with hot to boiling water.
After the ingredients melt completely, mix them around a bit, and then pour the cream into another clean jar. Let it rest until it hardens and store it in a cool room until the next morning. That’s it!
Mature Skin Face Cream
For the second cream, you’ll need 15 grams of avocado oil, 10 grams of wheat germ oil, 15 grams of emulsifying wax NF, 45 grams of rose hydrosol, 15 grams of distilled water, 1 gram of vitamin E oil, 4 drops of rose essential oil, and 3 drops of your favorite essential oil.
With the right essential oils, you’ll get a face cream smelling like rose petals. For increased relaxation, you could pair this with a Joy Organics CBD cream to be used before or after.
Dry Skin Face Cream
If you face dry skin, here’s what you need. Start with avocado, argan, and kukui nut oil. Then, add some emulsifying wax NF, orange blossom water, as well as some distilled water. To finish things off, pour in the essential oils of your choice.
Thanks to the highly moisturizing ingredients inside this cream, you can say goodbye to dry skin.
Combination Skin Face Cream
For skin that doesn’t know what it wants or needs, here is what you should be buying. First, you’ll need some melon seed, jojoba, and wheat germ oil. Then, add the usual emulsifying wax NF.
For the grand finale, all lavender and distilled water, some sandalwood essential oil, and another essential oil of your choice.
Aloe and Lavender Face Cream
For the final face cream on our list, you’ll need some glycerin, Aloe Vera gel, and some distilled water. Then, for a silky-smooth skin, add avocado oil, cocoa butter, emulsifying wax, and only 3 grams of cetyl alcohol.
For just the right smell, we recommend you add orange, geranium and, obviously, lavender essential oils to the mix.
The Bottom Line
DIY face creams are not hard to make. The ingredients are not expensive either. However, it can be a bit difficult to find all the ingredients that you need to craft yourself such delights in your own home.
Nevertheless, with a little bit of dedication, we’re sure that you can get everything you need for your own, personal face cream. It’s also worth mentioning that, with the quantities mentioned for the first and second creams, you’ll get around 3-months’ worth of DIY face cream.
