I’ve been cleaning out my bathroom cabinets lately, and tossing all of those store-bought products that have an ingredient list that looks longer than a DMV line… arg!! It’s about time I started actually thinking about what I’m putting on my skin (which is then absorbed into my body causing who knows what kind of havoc).
This easy DIY night cream is made with just 3 ingredients, and let me tell you… it’s so luxurious!
It really could be used as a body butter. It’s perfect for moisturizing, fine lines and healing dry, dull skin. I use it on my face and neck before bed, and sometimes my heels, elbows, or any other part of the body I feel could use a little love.
- 3 tbsp cocoa butter
- 4 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp vitamin e oil
- 3-4 drops your favorite essential oil (optional)
Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes. Whisk in the vitamin E oil and the optional essential oil.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for about an hour.
Remove from the fridge, and whisk vigorously until the mixture become fluffy.
Cover with plastic wrap again and refrigerate for about 30 more minutes.
Whisk again and store in a small container with a lid (a 4 ounce mason jar works well).
Apply to your face, neck and/or chest every night before bed!
