Homemade Aloe Vera Moisturizer And Other Effective
An aloe Vera moisturizer is great when used as an anti-aging cream. Everyone knows how expensive anti-aging products are and most of them do not really work. We get carried away by advertisements and just end up throwing away our hard-earned money and being disappointed. To make your own at home, you need:
· 1 tbsp. Aloe Vera gel
· 1 tbsp. beeswax
· 2 tbsp. lanolin
· 2 tbsp. rose water
· 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
· 2 to 3 drops of essential oil (lavender, orange, lemon or rose)
Combine the lanolin and beeswax together, melt them in the microwave for about 30 to 40 seconds. Mix the olive oil and aloe vera gel. The aloe will help hydrate the skin, it also contains plumping agents to keep the skin looking young. With regular use, your wrinkles will be less visible. Combine the two mixtures together. Beat until you get a very smooth consistency. Add the rose water and the essential oil. Keep beating until the aloe vera moisturizer is thick and creamy.
Pour the mixture into a clean jar that you can tightly seal. You can use and store the moisturizer for up to 4 weeks. Use it every morning and night after cleansing and toning your face.
Mix together 3 tablespoons of honey, 3 tablespoons of wheat germ, 1 tbsp glycerin, ½ tbsp. of rose water, and 1 tbsp. of witch hazel. Apply morning and night after cleansing for a soothing, natural moisturizer.
