DIY Holistic beauty & skincare


I just tried making my own face cream the other day, and it turned out really well. I asked you guys on Instagram if you wanted the recipe, and that was a solid yes! So, here you go!

The recipe is made with only 4 natural and pure ingredients and water. Simply, easy and you are then assured that you only put good ingredients on your face. Because remember, whatever you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body. Therefore I want to use as pure ingredients as possible.

The face cream is very moisturising, and perfect for dry winter skin. This cream is also perfect if you have very sensitive skin, because all the ingredients are very gentle and soothing.

If you are not used to putting oils on your face, then you might find the cream a bit too greasy to use as a day cream, but it sure is perfect for a very moisturising night cream.

face cream


  • 50 g almond oil
  • 10 g sheabutter
  •  6 g bee’s wax
  • 50 g water
  • a few drops of vitamin E oil (optional)


*Shea butter is known for repairing skin and boosting collagen

How to do it

It is so simple, you just put all the ingredients into a double boiler and melt it all together. Once it is all melted, you put it into the freezer for 15-20 minutes. Then you take it out and use a mixer to blend it all together until it has a nice, smooth consistency. Then use a spoon to scoop it into a glass or tin container, and voila you’ve got yourself your very own face cream!

    Den ser rigtig spænende ud. 🙂
    Ved du om man kan undværer eller erstatte bivoksen med noget andet. Er veganer så vil gerne undværer det 🙂

      Hej Stine, helt forståeligt 😀 Jeg har ikke selv prøvet med noget andet, så ved ikke hvordan det vil virke. Men synes engang jeg hørte nogen nævne noget der hed ‘alternative wax’, som kunne bruges som erstatning for bivoks. Har som sagt ikke selv erfaring med det, men det er da værd at kigge efter 🙂 Du kunne evt. også prøve at lave opskriften og udelade bivoksen og bare tage lidt mere sheasmør, det kunne også være det fungerer rent konsistensmæssigt
