For someone who has dry, sensitive skin, the arrival of each new season brings more reasons to worry than to rejoice and this is not the way to prepare for summer. High temperatures, dry air, and hot winds are all devastating for sensitive skin and your face is always exposed to the elements.
Homemade All-Natural Face Cream
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 2½ tablespoons cocoa butter
- ½ tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
How To Do:
① Start melting the coconut oil by sticking your pyrex jar or container in a bowl of hot water.
② Then, you can combine all the ingredients in a small pan or double boiler and heat them up just until the cocoa butter melts. Remove from heat.
③ Allow the mixture to cool down slightly, place in a small sealed container/jar and shake vigorously, let it sit for a few minutes and shake again.
④ You can store the mixture in the fridge and depending on the temperature, the mixture may also solidify similar to how coconut oil/cocoa butter does on their own.
⑤ In the winter time, the cream solidifies. You just have to use your finger to get a little bit out of the jar, rub it around in your palms or between your fingers to warm it up a bit and then apply.
