So, here is a confession.... I love to make my own skincare products, especially lotion. The beauty about the whole process is YOU know exactly what is in YOUR skin cream. Ready to start? All you need is an electric mixer, shea butter, coconut oil, and essential oil ( lavender is best to soothe any type of skin). That's it? Yes, you have everything to make your own lotion and preserve the health of your face.
Take 1 cup of shea butter and 1 cup of coconut oil and melt the ingredients in the double boiler or a microwave
Mix the 2 together with an electric mixer and add essential oil ( about 50 drops or so, depending on YOUR personal taste).
If you like a less greasy lotion, add 1/3 cup of arrowroot powder or cornstarch. However, if you would like a more thicker version of the cream, try adding 1 teaspoon of beeswax. Voila! You have your own , DYI lotion you just made ! Happy moisturizing!
