Do you have a suggestion for an easy-to-make moisturizer? I am getting so wary about buying commercial products, what with all the news about personal care products and endocrine-disrupting chemicals! —Jenny, MI
I agree, when you make your own products you are assured of what you are getting, and when you use the truly pure natural ingredients you can get really beneficial skincare products.
Iíve selected a few easy-to-make moisturizing products for you to make. Each has their own benefits.
Cocoa Butter Antibacterial Moisturizing Lotion
Cocoa butter is naturally water repellent and thus protective of the skin, it is especially useful for dehydrated skin.
1 tablespoon cocoa butter
2 tablespoons jojoba
1 tablespoon aloe vera gel
Melt the cocoa butter and jojoba in a double boiler over medium heat. Once the cocoa butter is melted, stir in the aloe vera gel until thoroughly blended. Use by dabbing on your finger.
Makes about ľ cup.
Here is another moisturizer, this one doesnít take any heating.
Soft and Silky Moisturizer.
