Natural Face Moisturizer Recipe

There can be a lot of chemicals in moisturizers that are causing more harm than doing good. When you use natural ingredients, you know exactly what is in the moisturizer and you don’t have to worry about any further damage being caused to your skin. 

Here is a natural face moisturizer recipe that will nourish your skin better than any moisturizer you have ever used before!

Once you have tried this moisturizer you won’t be able to use a store-bought one ever again as the benefits will be too good on your skin!

What Are The Ingredients? 

Shea Butter

A large component of natural face moisturizer is shea butter as it is known all over the world for its moisturizing properties. It helps to soothe dry and cracked skin which can help ease any irritation you might be having.

Shea butter can also help to improve acne and tighten skin, so it is capable of improving a lot of elements of your skin. 

If you aren’t a fan of shea butter, you can substitute it for cocoa butter or mango butter. Both of these ingredients have high moisturizing properties and can also help to soothe dry skin.

These ingredients are available in health stores and even in some supermarkets. 

Essential Oils

Essential oils have lots of benefits that can help with acne, dry skin, and will add a scent to your moisturizer. If you don’t want to use essential oils in your moisturizer, you don’t have to.

However, they do have a lot of benefits to the skin as well as having a lovely scent. Here are some of the benefits of essential oils on the skin. 

Dry Skin 

If you are suffering from dry skin, try this blend of essential oils in your moisturizer. Combine sandalwood, myrrh, and lavender essential oils with your moisturizer mixture, and get ready to say goodbye to dry skin and hello to smooth skin. 

Although moisturizers aim to get rid of dry skin, some ingredients in store-bought moisturizers can dry your skin out. Using natural moisturizers will ensure that your skin stays smooth and soothed. 

Clear Skin

If you are suffering from acne and want to clear your skin, there is a blend that can help clear your skin so you can feel confident and happy.

All you need to do is combine lavender, tea tree, and frankincense to your moisturizer and you will be able to see your skin begin to clear almost instantly. 

Revive Skin

If you are looking to revive your skin and give it some much-needed care, this blend will be perfect in your moisturizer as you will refresh your skin and you will begin to see a glow. To make this blend, add yarrow pom, lavender, and sandalwood essential oils to your moisturizer. 

Youthful Skin

If you want your moisturizer to make your skin look youthful and fresh, then add this essential oil blend to your moisturizer and begin to see the benefits. Add rose, myrrh, frankincense, lavender, and helichrysum to your moisturizer and begin to see gorgeous, youthful skin. 

Carrier Oil

Using a carrier oil in your moisturizer is extremely important as you need to dilute the essential oils as you will be using them directly on your skin. Using a carrier oil will help your skin to feel the benefits of the essential oils instead of experiencing any irritation or burning.

Popular carrier oils to use in natural moisturizers include fractionated coconut oil and jojoba oil as they are both incredibly soothing on the skin. 

Recipe For Natural Face Moisturizer

As this recipe is made from completely natural ingredients, it is perfect for soothing all skin types and skin problems. It won’t cause any breakouts as it will instantly soothe your skin. 

To make the moisturizer, position a glass bowl over a saucepan with the heat on low. Add the coconut oil, jojoba oil, and shea butter to the bowl and stir until they have melted. 

Once the ingredients have melted, take them off the heat and let them cool. 

As soon as the mixture has cooled, add in your chosen essential oils and stir to combine. 

Store your moisturizer in an airtight container and use it daily for beautiful skin. 

How Long Will The Moisturizer Last? 

As long as the moisturizer is stored correctly out of sunlight and kept at room temperature, it will last about a year. You need to make sure that your moisturizer is kept in an airtight container so it doesn’t become spoiled.

As long as you keep your moisturizer in these conditions, you will be able to use it for a whole year. 

You don’t have to use a huge amount of moisturizer when you are using it, so using a little every day will help to make sure that you don’t run out of any moisturizer quickly. 

How To Use The Moisturizer

Use this moisturizer daily to see the results of gorgeous clear skin. Use a small amount of the moisturizer and evenly distribute it around your face making sure that your whole face is covered. Remember to only use a small amount, the size of a cent. 

If you use too much moisturizer on your face, your skin will become super oily from the remaining moisturizer and your skin won’t be able to absorb it all. Make sure that you are only using a small amount to evenly cover your face in a light layer of moisturizer. 

Final Thoughts

To conclude, this recipe for a natural face moisturizer is extremely beneficial and healthy for your skin. As you know exactly what is in the moisturizer and it is made from 100% natural ingredients, there is no risk of any harmful chemicals affecting your skin and causing you to break out.

There is also no risk of your skin becoming oily or dried out, only if you use too much or too little. 

The moisturizer is incredibly easy to make as it only contains 3 ingredients plus whatever essential oils you want to add into your mixture.

The essential oil blends that are listed above will help soothe any skin problems you are suffering from and, by using the moisturizer daily, you will be able to see improvements in your skin in no time. 

Finally, it is important to make sure that you use the carrier oil in your moisturizer recipe as you don’t want to experience any irritation from the essential oils.

Once you include the carrier oils in your recipe, the moisturizer will be appropriate to use on your skin. If you are looking for a moisturizer that will keep your skin soothed and healthy, this recipe will be for you.
