Hello all my fellow homemakers, project lovers, & DIY’ers! Thanks for stopping by! If you love healthy homemade goodies and are up for a simple and fun home adventure, this is a great one! Today, I am going to share with you how to make this DIY silky smooth face cream. As well as share with you all the ingredients in it and how they can benefit your face!
This DIY face cream is great as little “I’m thinking of you” gifts too!
This little project has been on my “to do” list for a while now. My DIY moisturizing night cream is great, but I really wanted something a bit more smooth and light for the “most of the time” times! This goes on the skin so nicely. It absorbs very well, and smells amazing! I really think you will be happy with it! First off, let’s talk about what’s in it:
Shea Butter- Rich in vitamin E, D, & A, this oil is like a super food for your skin. It also leaves your skin very moisturized while repairing, fine lines, wrinkles and scars.
Jojoba oil- It is great for oily skin, it helps regulate the skins sebum production. It works well for those with acne & is an anti-microbial.
Vitamin E oil- This oil stimulates the formation of collagen as well as improves skin texture.
Coconut oil- The fatty acids in this oil work like antioxidants reversing and preventing the damage due to free radicals.
Beeswax- Also great for dry rough skin. It also acts as a protective barrier to our skin while still allowing it to breath.
Joy essential oil
Frankincense essential oil
Lemon essential oil
Lavender essential oil
*Depending on your skin type you can trade out Jojoba for sweet almond or olive oil. If you prefer cocoa butter better you can swap that out with the shea butter. I also love to add Myrrh to this recipe but happened to be out. Completely optional.
You don’t have to have any fancy equipment. It can totally be done with old items around the house to keep costs down. Or you can go all out and get all the “get up.” I’ll leave that up to you. Personally, I go the frugal route.
All you will need is the ingredients, a double boiler or two pots. One has to be smaller so you can use it as a double boiler. This recipe uses such a small amount of beeswax, that clean up is super easy. NO MESS! YEAH!
It’s time to get your silky smooth skin on!
Silky smooth diy face cream recipe:
- 2 oz. Shea butter
- 1 oz. Jojoba oil
- 2 oz. Coconut oil
- 1/2 oz. beeswax
- 1 Tbsp. Vitamin E oil
- 12 drops of frankincense
- 10 drops of joy
- 5 drops of lavender
- 3 drops of lemon
- Prepare your double boiler, or you can also use a small pot and hold it in a larger pot of water.
- Place on low heat.
- Melt all ingredients together (Except the essential oil), and stir well until melted.
- Lastly, take it off of the heat, add in your essential oils, stir and pour!
- Pour into your jars or tins and let it set for about 2 hours!
This makes 5 ounces of face cream. I like to get the 1 ounce tins, 1 ounce goes a long way! I hope you enjoy this recipe. This recipe will make your skin glow!
