DIY: Night Time Face Cream

Shea Butter

This DIY face cream only needs three ingredients. It will leave your skin smooth, moisturized, and fight blemishes.

Ingredients:

4 tablespoon of unrefined shea butter

3-4 tablespoons of sweet almond oil

5 drops of lavender essential oil

Directions:

  1. Add shea butter and sweet almond oil to a mixing bowl
  2. Use a hand mixer or manually stir ingredients until the mixture is smooth and free of lumps
  3. Stir in essential oil

Shea butter is non-comodegenic meaning it is less likely to clog your pores. Shea butter will moisturize your skin and leave it feeling soft and supple.

Sweet almond oil is also non-comodegenic and is rich in vitamin and minerals to combat dryness and heal your skin. Sweet almond oil is easily absorbed by the skin and won’t leave your face feeling greasy. If you do not have sweet almond oil then jojoba or grape seed oil are great substitutes.

Lavender essential oil is balancing for the skin. It helps to fight acne and soothe other skin conditions such as psoriasis. Also, lavender has a calming effect which is perfect for aiding in sleep.

Since no water is added to this recipe the moisturizer should last you months. Also, the essential oil helps to preserve the mixture.
