How Can You Make Your Own Face Cream?

To make your own face cream, combine almond oil, beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter, fragrant essential oils and vitamin E oil. This recipe yields 1/2 cup of face cream. The required supplies include a stove, two glass jars, one jar lid and measuring spoons.

Pour 1/4 cup of almond oil into a clean glass jar, and add 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Pour in 1/2 tablespoon of vitamin E oil, add 2 tablespoons of beeswax, and then add 1 tablespoon of shea butter. Sprinkle several drops of one or more fragrant essential oils over the other ingredients.

Put a pot on the stove over low heat, and add 3-4 inches of water. When the water simmers, set the jar in the pot. Heat the ingredients for several minutes, stirring occasionally. When no solids remain, pull the pot off of the heat. Carefully lift the hot jar out of the pot, and pour the contents into another jar.

Set the open jar in a safe place until the face cream cools and thickens. Seal the jar tightly, and store it in a cool place.

This facial cream contains powerful anti-aging ingredients that promote healthy skin. Almond oil is an effective moisturizer, and shea butter reduces inflammation. Beeswax also has an anti-inflammatory effect on skin.
