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.

Things You'll Need

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.

Remove from heat. Whisk until cool.

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.

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

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


  • Use a circular, upward motion to lightly massage the moisturizer into the face.

  • The best time to apply moisturizer is right after a shower or bath, when the skin is damp. The moisturizer helps to seal in the moisture.

  • Store all aromatic and liquid oils in the refrigerator after initial use.
