Homemade Moisturizer for Face

By Mimi Abney

To create a spa-like treatment for your face, make a homemade moisturizer. For extremely dry and sensitive skin, you can whip up a natural skin cream to smooth and soften skin without petroleum and mineral oil. There's no need to spend a lot of money on a moisturizer--you can create a gentle and rich moisturizer that is inexpensive and effective.


Step 1

Combine 1 cup of liquid avocado or almond oil and ½ cup of beeswax in a small pot over medium heat. Stir with a wooden spoon until melted.

Step 2

Remove from heat. Whisk until cool.

Step 3

Add the contents of three capsules of Vitamin E into the pot. Add fragrant oils like rose, sandalwood or lavender into the mixture. Stir until all ingredients are combined.

Step 4

Transfer the mixture to a sterile glass or plastic jar. Shake vigorously for 5 to 10 seconds to combine.

Step 5

Store the moisturizer in a dark, cool place for a maximum of 30 days. Refrigerate unused portions for an additional 15 to 20 days.
