on their skin. There has never been so much talk about cosmetic
treatments to lessen wrinkles and sagging on face, body; on skin, in general. And there is a new method that promises to

microneedling and skinbooster. Have you heard of them yet? Besides being expensive, they are also very
invasive on our body. So, in today’s video, we will show you some
great homemade recipes to help keep your skin beautiful, moisturized and soft all year long. Are you interested? Let’s start with a homemade facial moisturizer: This natural moisturizer can be easily made
at home, and it’s a great solution to moisturize dry and extra dry face skin. It is also perfect for normal or combination
skin. Use twice a day, after applying a facial toner. Ingredients
2 tablespoons of apricot kernel oil; 1 teaspoon of jojoba oil;
1 teaspoon of wheat germ oil; 6 drops of lavender essential oil;
2 drops of lemon essential oil (do not use in case of sensitive skin); Directions
Combine all ingredients in a sterilized, air-tight glass container and shake it well to mix. Store it in a dark and cool place, and use
it in up to two months. If you wish to moisturize your body in a more
natural way, without chemicals, do this coconut, oats, and milk mixture. It will nourish and protect your skin, making
it smooth, soft, and nourished. Ingredients
1 cup of shredded coconut; 1 spoon of oatmeal;
1 glass of warm milk; Directions
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Apply on all body areas that are dry. Let it act for 15 minutes and rinse with warm
water. Besides these homemade creams to moisturize
your skin, it is important to: Use a good quality moisturizing liquid soap;
Avoid long showers in hot water; Not rub your skin with a towel and just pat
it dry; Exfoliate your skin at least 2 times a month
to remove dead skin cells and facilitate moisturizing; Avoid alcohol-based solutions;
Avoid using oils since they don’t always moisturize the skin correctly, and last, but not least:
Drink at least 67 oz. of water a day. Besides that, remember to avoid sun and wind
exposure since they can also dry your skin. So, did you like these recipes? Did you know any of them? Have you ever made a homemade moisturizer? Share your experiences with us.

  1. I USED TO MAKE MY OWN SHAMPOO….NO CONDITIONER NEEDED, IT WAS WONDERFUL. AND I MADE MY OWN FACE CREAMS AND LOTION. THEN I MOVED TO AMERICA IN 1981 AND HAD NO LUCK TO FIND ALL THE INGREDIENTS .

  2. 2 words for the DIYers: shea butter. Get it raw by the brick directly from Ghana. Best stuff on earth. Its a thick base, leaving room for the addition of that lavender (balances sebum(skins own oil) levels on skin) and if you like it smoother/creamier add some coconut/jojoba/sweet almond oil. Apricot oil is great too of course but can be a bit expensive. Geranium e. Oil is also amazing for the skin and smells awesome with lavender and rose. This butter has lots of natural occuring vitamins like A and E, which protect and heal. And because it is so effective, a lil goes a long way with shea! Love n light yall!
