You may be asking, why these ingredients? Well, each of these has a role to play in giving you a beautiful and glowing skin. Let’s break it down one by one.
Argan oil fights free radicals and gives you a more healthy-looking appearance, because of the antioxidants and Vitamin E that is found in it, while carrot seed oil helps rejuvenate your skin and repair its tone and improve its elasticity.
Coconut oil and cocoa butter are both essential ingredients that lock in moisture in your skin and as they have a high level of antioxidants that also fight against free radicals. Rose hip seed oil on the other hand, help repair skin damaged by the sun.
And lastly, Frankincense helps with skin cell growth. Combined they all help give you a healthy and younger looking skin that will leave many at awe.
So what do you need to do to make all these ingredients work together?
3 Easy Steps to Follow
- Mix all of the ingredients above in a double boiler. If you don’t have one, prepare two pots (one needs to be bigger than the other). Boil water on the bigger pot and place the smaller pot, where all of the ingredients are mixed, inside it. Take note that the ingredients need to be heated from the boiling water and not directly from the source
- Stir all of the ingredients consistently until the cocoa butter and coconut oil melts. Make sure everything is evenly blended
- After everything is blended, remove the double boiler (or pots) from the heat and let it cool. You’ll know that it has cooled down when the cocoa butter and coconut oil has thickened
To use the cream on your face, you just need to wash your face before application to get rid of dirt and excess oil. Then gently and evenly apply the DIY anti wrinkle cream on your face. One tip is to massage the cream on your face in an upward motion to give your skin a little extra lift.
