Moisturizing skin is equally important as cleaning and toning it.
A good skin health is achieved with a combination of these three steps in which moisturizing is very important.
Here are few remedies for achieving a beautiful skin in an all natural way…..
Coconut Oil Cream– Coconut oil has anti ageing properties which helps in achieving a flawless skin which is free from wrinkles and blemishes. It is also a great moisturizer which provides a smooth skin and tightens the pores.
To make a coconut moisturizer mix 1/2 cup coconut oil with 1 tsp liquid vitamin E and few drops of lavender essential oil. Mix and store in a jar. You can even skip other ingredients and just use coconut oil for a good massage, but adding these ingredients certainly helps.
Another recipe goes like this… Mix 1/2 cup coconut oil with 2 tsp almond oil, add 1 tsp cocoa butter and 5 drops of lavender essential oil. Mix everything in a container and whip until everything blends in and becomes light and fluffy. Store in a clean jar.
One more thing you can always give essential oil a miss and add a one which suits our skin.
Aloe Vera Cream– In a melter melt put 1/2 cup beewax, 1/4th cup coconut oil and 1/4th cup almond oil and melt in everything. Once done pour the mixture in a grinder and let it cool completely. In 1 cup aloe vera gel mix few drops of our favorite essential oil. Now turn on the grinder and slowly pour the aloe mixture while doing so through the opening of the jar lid. It will turn fluffy. The white moisturizing cream is ready.
