WHIPPED ANTI-WRINKLE CREAM


I whipped up my first batch of facial & body cream today! A few weeks earlier I was having dinner with some of my friends and they were talking about all the special facial creams they had. I have no experience in those kinds of products because of my allergies so I've always had to use just the basic unscented creams from the pharmacy. I decided that it was time for me to have one of those lovely scented miracle creams that turns you 20 years younger over one night :-)


I did several tests and the final recipe still needs some tweaking, but below are the ingredients I used:

Castor Oil: stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, softens and hydrates skin, rejuvenates, natural treatment for wrinkles, gives skin a youthful appearance.

Coconut Oil: anti-oxidant, slows down aging, smoothens irregularities and moisturises efficiently.

Horse Chestnut Oil: anti-inflammatory, prevents capillary fragility, balances circulation, promotes clear skin and even complexion.

Mango Butter: emollient, moisturizing, anti-oxidant, regenerative.

Rose Hip Oil: reduces wrinkles and fine lines, repares damaged skin cells, rehydrates dry skin, rich source of Vitamin A, omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids.

Wheatgerm Oil: rich source of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and protein, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, regenerative, improves circulation, reduces scarring.

Lemongrass essential oil: revitalizes body and mind, reduces cellulite.

Palmarosa essential oil: helps with scar tissue and wrinkles.

Rosewood essentail oil: cell stimulant, rejuvenates skin, reduces wrinkles.

  2. This looks divine. I make a face cream I love and another body butter that I can use on my face as well.

  3. Numerous wrinkle creams and skin lotions offered by department stores, drugstores and online promise to reduce or eliminate wrinkles and stop or reverse sun damage. But the question is, do these anti wrinkle creams work? Many researches propose that some wrinkle creams contain ingredients that may reduce skin wrinkles. But some of the ingredients haven't been scientifically tested to prove their benefits.

  17. I really loved reading your blog. It was very well authored and easy to understand. Unlike additional blogs, I have read which are not that good. I also found your posts very interesting.

  18. Do you have the amounts of each oil you need to add to get this recipe? I would love to try this, but I am new at this and I would love to have the measurements for the ingrediants to try it.

  19. This sounds wonderful. After loosing alot of weight my mother and my husband informed me that my face looked a bit more wrinkled (im only 47) so of course I panicked and started looking for a diy formula that I could use or make to help bring my face back to the way it used to be. I would love to make this but could you provide me with the measurements of each ingredient so that I may make this? I would really appreciate it a lot. thank you very much!
