Why It’s Time to Make Your Own Face Cream

I had converted to natural products to reduce my toxin levels, optimize liver function, and reduce excess chemicals that mimic hormones and so I blamed it on the changes in skincare.

It’s a difficult process; I spent about one year or even more testing different products. You need to find what works for you.

Now, finally, I found a routine that was costly but brought my skin back to normality.

Take a moment and ask yourself how many products you use in a typical day. Cream, lotion, deodorant, soap, perfume, makeup, lip balm, anti-cellulite treatments?

Now ask yourself how many ingredients are in those products.

What if I tell you that just one of those products contains 126 unique ingredients?

The skin is our biggest organ. Everything you put on it goes into your bloodstream for about six minutes.

All the toxins are in your organs for another twenty minutes, and some of them stay there for a long, long time.

Did you know that less than 20% of the chemicals in cosmetics are proven safe? I can also tell you that of 12 000 substances used in cosmetics, only eight are forbidden.

Do you really believe when you see a label “natural” or “organic”?

For example, if you are on your way to buy a face cream and you are reading what this is made from…one herb (sounds good, it’s natural) is, but then you see – another 20 chemical substances…so, is this a natural cream???

Yes, of course, it is!!!

If you choose carefully what you eat, why don’t you do the same with your skin?

The Hidden Benefits of This DIY Face Cream

Shea Butter

  • Shea butter is a great natural beauty product for your skin or hair. It is rich in fats, making it an excellent emollient and skin moisturizing agent.
  • Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. These can help reduce inflammatory skin diseases and the damage the skin and hair have undergone due to free radicals.
  • It also contains vitamins A and E, which keep the skin in optimal health and protect it from being damaged by the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation.

Cocoa Butter

  • Cocoa butter is high in antioxidants, which help fight off free-radical damage, which can cause skin aging, dark patches, and dull skin.
  • It reduces stretch marks and scars.
  • Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids and hydrates the skin deeply, making it a wonderful addition to body moisturizers and lip balms.
  • It contains oleic, palmitic, and stearic acids, all of which nourish the skin.

Jojoba Oil

  • Jojoba oil moisturizes dry skin.
  • Jojoba oil helps soften and soothe ragged cuticles by Boasting tons of fatty acids.
  • Jojoba oil can soothe dry, chapped lips thanks to its nourishing vitamin and minerals.
  • It contains vitamin E, a strong antioxidant that helps reduce inflammation and speed up cell regeneration both in the body and the skin. That makes jojoba oil a great treatment for sunburn.
  • Jojoba oil has antibacterial properties and boosts the skin’s glow.

Rose Essential Oil

Rose essential oil is perfect for dry or aging skin.

Beetroot Powder

  • Because of vitamin C’s anti-inflammatory properties, it can be used to treat conditions such as acne.
  • Beets contain vitamin C and can be used in treating hyperpigmentation.
  • Beetroot is rich in antioxidants such as beta carotene, vitamin C, and E, which aid in the regeneration of skin cells. This wholesome package of antioxidants helps to maintain skin and hair health and prevents aging by delaying the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

    Im really wanting to try this recipe but was waiting to know if i could use hibiscus powder instead of beet root powder hibiscus has so many great benefits for skin its know as natures botox or could you recommend a face cream made with hibiscus powder

  2. Lora says:

    Yes, the beetroot powder can do that, so you can skip it. It’s an optional ingredient, just for the color. You can use mica powder instead

  3. Lora says:

    Hey Debby, I’m always using around 1/8 tsp rose petal powder. But if using rosehip powder you should consider that it may color your skin and that’s why it’s always better to use rosehip in the evening. Rosehip has also anti-aging benefits.
