How to make Homemade Anti-Aging Cream
I’m sure you’ve been wondering how to make your own anti-aging moisturizer. But doesn’t it seem complicated?
My mother used to say…
“Maybe it’s something I should leave to the professionals”
That doesn’t mean I always listened to my mother!
So don’t worry, it’s not rocket science, we show you with your full guide below:
Sure you can go out and buy yourself an anti-aging cream. Sure that store bought cream will be “great,” but did you ever consider what is actually inside the cream?
Going au natural is one of the best things you can do to preserve your youth and beauty and knowing exactly what you are putting on your skin on a daily basis is absolutely essential.
Now, for my love of all things DIY, I’m going to share with you a homemade anti-aging cream that is not only cheap, but effective.
This cream is going to be paraben-free, chemical-free, cruelty-free…in fact let’s just make this easy and say all-bad-stuff-free, this recipe is going to be a go-to for you in your quest for younger looking skin.
Wrinkle-Fighting Facial Cream
For this homemade anti-aging cream you will need the following items:
Step 1: In a double boiler, mix all of your ingredients together
Note – If you don’t have a double boiler you can use two different sized pots. Just bring water to a boil in a larger pot then place your smaller pot with the ingredients in it so it heats from the boiling water; not the direct source.
Step 2: Constantly stir ingredients until cocoa butter and coconut oil melt and everything is blended evenly
Step 3: Remove from heat and let cool. The cocoa butter and coconut oil should thicken once cool
Step 4: On a clean face, apply your homemade anti-aging cream to your face and neck. Massage it into your skin in an upwards motion to give your skin an extra little lift.
If you live in a warmer climate, your cream may be a little runny so be sure to give it a good shake before application. Store in a cool, dark place to get the best results.
OK, this is why you’ll Love this…
There’s so many great things about this homemade anti-aging cream that you’ll benefit from.
Firstly, the cream base of cocoa butter and coconut oil is rich with antioxidants that lock in moisture but fight against free radicals.
Secondly, the essential oils used are fabulous for fighting the signs of aging.
Rose hip seed oil is ripe with omegas and penetrates your skin rapidly. If you have previously sun-damaged skin, this oil will help repair that damage.
Argan oil has high levels of Vitamin E and antioxidants that fight free radicals. The natural chemical components called saponins, hydrate dry, blemished skin to give it a more healthy-looking appearance.
Carrot seed oil is a must-have ingredient because it promotes skin rejuvenation by increasing circulation. This helps to repair your skin tone, improve elasticity, thus the overall appearance of your skin.
Finally, frankincense encourages skin cell growth. The higher the cell turnover rate, the younger looking your skin.
Thanks to the rose hip seed oil, this cream acts more like a serum than a regular cream. You know, serums soak deep into the skin to repair damage at the root of the problem and that’s what this homemade anti-aging cream will do for you.
So give it a shot, see how it works for your skin. Everyone’s skin is different and everyone shows different signs of getting old. So don’t be discouraged if you have to make a few adjustments. I wouldn’t be surprised if you saw results within the first week of use. As we always say here at GEDOC, you can do anything you put your mind to. So don’t be discouraged and really make sure you get out there and try to make stuff on your own too. Here’s to a healthy life and health!
