If there’s something I really love to do, it’s to make my own skincare products. And I’ve already created a bunch of them and shared them in here with you guys, but if you are new to this blog, then here you have some recipes for homemade skincare products!
By making your own skincare products you will know exactly what is in them, and you can customise them to fit your skintype. You can play around and try different ingredients, fx try using jojoba oil instead of almond oil. Put less of some of the “butter” in it and more of the liquid ingredients if you like a more liquid consistency in your products. You can really play around and find what fits you and your skin type. Some homemade skincare products are also the perfect idea for a present to your friends, sister or mom!

Have you tried any of these recipes?
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.
- 50 g almond oil
- 10 g sheabutter
- 6 g bee’s wax
- 50 g water

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!
