Make these easy, inexpensive DIY face and body moisturizers. These are so simple and the creamiest, dreamiest moisturizers I’ve ever used! Today, I’m going to be sharing simple and natural DIY moisturizers that you can make at home, and these only require three ingredients or less.
So whether you’re, looking for a cream and oil or a gel moisturizer, this article covers all of them, so let’s, go ahead and get started.
DIY Oil Moisturizer For All Skin Type
The first DIY moisturizer I want to share with you guys is my personal favorite and one that I’ve, been using for a long time.
The main ingredient is jojoba oil, and jojoba is very, very similar to the skin’s own sebum.
This is why I think it works great for any skin type. It helps balance oil production by tricking the skin into producing less oil. It’s also absorbed by the skin very quickly. So I don’t ever find my skin feeling greasy at all.
So for a simple DIY moisturizer, you can apply a few drops of this on its own, or I like to make an oil blend, and this one works especially great for acne-prone skin.
- Fill up a small dropper bottle with jojoba oil.
- To this, I add three drops of frankincense essential oil, which has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
- It’s, a powerful astringent known to reduce acne, prevent wrinkles, and it’s also a wonderful scar healer, so it helps even out the skin tone.
- Also, add three drops of lavender essential oil. This is one of my favorite oils because it’s not only soothing and relaxing, but it also has natural antiseptic properties. It helps reduce any redness on the skin.
- Please give it a little shake.
- Apply a few drops of this all over your face every morning or night.
DIY Cream Moisturizer For Dry Skin
Now, if you tend to have dehydrated skin or look for a little extra moisture, this cream moisturizer will do the trick for this.
You’ll need 1/4 cup of shea butter, which is naturally non-comedogenic, meaning it won’t clog your pores. It’s loaded with nutrients, like vitamin A, vitamin E, and fatty acids that will provide you with deep moisture, and it has a natural SPF of 6 to 10.
So it makes the perfect facial moisturizer, and to this, you need to add an eighth cup of sweet almond oil. It’s loaded with vitamin E, and it’s very lightweight. So I think it’s the perfect oil to mix with the already moisturizing properties of shea butter, but you can also substitute the almond oil for jojoba or grapeseed oil.
- To begin, you want to melt the shea butter using a double boiler, or if you don’t have one, you can boil some water in a saucepan and then place a bowl on top of that add the shea butter.
- And let it melt completely.
- Once you’ve, let it cool, you can add the oil and stir it together.
- Please place it in the fridge and let it solidify for approximately one hour.
- Now that it’s more firm, remove it from the refrigerator, and at this point, you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oils.
- Either stir or whip the mixture until it turns into a creamy consistency and now you can use this as a day or a night cream.
- A little bit of this moisturizer goes a long way, so you only need to apply a minimal amount, and you’re all set.
DIY Gel Moisturizer For Summers
If you’re looking for a light moisturizer for the summertime or have oily skin, aloe vera gel is the way to go. It helps moisturize the skin without leaving it greasy. It’s also very soothing.
It’s traditionally used to treat acne and acne scars, thanks to its wound healing properties. And it contains tons of antioxidants that help keep the skin nice and firm.
- So in a container, add equal parts aloe vera gel and jojoba oil, which will also help with the skin’s oil production.
- Lastly, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil. The beauty of DIY skincare – is that you can customize it to fit your own needs, so you can add more aloe or oil depending on what works best for you.
- Now the moisturizer is ready.
- Remember to shake it up each time you use it.
To Sum Up!
Pick whichever moisturizer works best for your skin type and apply after cleansing and toning for really soft and hydrated skin.
Those are three simple and natural moisturizers that you can make depending on what your skin needs.
