Simple Ingredients for Homemade Anti-Aging Cream

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup almond oil
  • 2 tbsp virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons beeswax
  • 1/2 teaspoon vitamin E oil
  • 1 tablespoon Shea butter
  • Essential oil of choice (optional)

Benefits of all those ingredients 

Almond oil is an emollient, which means it makes the skin softer, and less harsh and abrasive. It has historically been used to treat psoriasis, eczema, and scarring. It smoothes and rejuvenates skin and improves complexion and skin tone.

Virgin coconut oil had the strongest scavenging effect on free radicals and the highest antioxidant activity. In another study, the antioxidant activity of virgin coconut oil was found to result in an increase of antioxidants and self-healing compounds of the body, resulting in rapid formation of cells and blood vessels in harmed areas. These studies are significant in that they indicate coconut oil’s antioxidant capacity and antioxidants are known to have considerable anti-aging effects.

Beeswax has a number of benefits for the skin, including an anti-inflammatory action that helps to calm and soothe, and helps soften and soothe skin.

Vitamin E prevents water loss from the skin, and helps it to retain its natural moisture. Thus, it makes dull, dry skin look healthy and well-moisturized.

Shea Butte can treat many skin problems, including blemishes, wrinkles, itching, sunburns, small skin wounds, eczema, skin allergies, insect bites, frost bite, and other skin conditions.
