I don’t know what it is but lately my skin has been so dry and this Homemade Face Cream really fixes that. Skip the overpriced face creams and dry this frugal DIY face moisturizer cream. I think you are going to love it too!diy face moisturizer
Just 2 basic ingredients to make this DIY face moisturizer cream:
- Coconut Oil
- Young Living Essential Oil
You’ll also need a small container to put your face cream in. I had an old container that I cleaned out and reused. You might want to dig through your drawers to see if you have an old container you might be able to repurpose. It is very easy and economical to make a large batch of this homemade face cream. If you are thinking about making a big batch for gifts (think slumber party, bridal shower, teacher gifts…), you can purchase small containers from Amazon.
Directions to make Homemade Face Cream:
1. Scoop about 1/4 cup coconut oil into a microwave safe dish. Microwave for about 30 seconds, or until completely melted.
2. Add 6-8 drops of essential oil to your melted coconut oil. I chose Tea Tree oil because it is great for your skin. You can use it directly on your skin by itself, but you have to try it in this face cream. It feels heavenly. Other great essential oils for your skin include: frankincense, ylang ylang, sandalwood, lavender and more.
3. Pour the coconut and essential oil mixture into your container. Set aside until it becomes solid again. Use as needed. I love to use this before bed. When I wake up, my face feels glorious.
Try this homemade face cream for yourself. I’d love to hear what you think of it.
This is also a great homemade hand lotion.
I’ve actually been keeping this fun little homemade face cream in my purse and it is also working great for a homemade hand lotion on the go. It fits nicely in my purse and really helps with dry skin, especially after washing my hands in public bathrooms. What is about those public bathrooms? The soap is so drying! This homemade hand lotion will help with that!
