DIY – Moisturizing Anti Aging Face Cream With Shea Butter & Essential Oils

Have you noticed signs of aging on your face lately?

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and moisture. When the facial muscles put some strain on our skin, it gives way to wrinkles, sagging jowls, and puffy eyes. It is wise to detect any such signs early on and start remedial actions to prolong the skin’s youthfulness.

But before you jump to anti-aging or anti-wrinkle facial creams, let us warn you against the dangers of parabens, sulfates, and in most cases, fragrance, these beautifully packaged creams come with. You can always opt for a more eco-friendly, less expensive option of homemade anti-aging face cream.

Is there a shock or disbelief on your face? Like, you just started reading curiously, but don’t think any DIY cream could resist the signs of aging. Hang on for a while, and you will believe us too. As you age, your skin’s ability to reproduce cells, release the oil, and all those chemicals that bind moisture and ensure elasticity & radiance; declines. And a full treatment calls for switch to a healthy diet and cutting off the bad stuff.

Not to forget, use topical treatments like one we are sharing to treat the wrinkles and age spots.

Shea Butter

The ingredient on top of our list is known to reduce premature wrinkles and facial lines. An ideal moisturizer, shea butter is used in many beauty products. It has soothing and healing abilities that help restore moisture, make the skin appear plumper and fade scars from various skin conditions.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a rich source of linoleic acid and omega-6 fatty acid, which helps soothe the skin and lock moisture. It also enhances lipid levels on the skin’s surface. The anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties form a protective barrier on the skin.

Rosehip Oil

Rosehip oil is a non-greasy moisturizing oil that also acts as a carrier oil. It helps skin retain water, penetrating deep into skin layers. It moisturizes dry and itchy skin. Rich in vitamins, it promotes the production of collagen in the skin and inhibits its breakdown. Together these properties help the skin maintain its elasticity and give it a radiant appearance.

Jojoba Oil

Jojoba oil creates a protective barrier on your skin, preventing loss of moisture and protecting against certain bacterial infections and dandruff. It is non-comedogenic (does not clog pores), controls the natural production of sebum, and is anti-bacterial, an ideal oil to control breakouts and treat acne. Whereas, the vitamin E components help fight oxidative stress.

Vitamin E Oil

It is an excellent choice for treating dark patches on your skin. Vitamin E has plenty of antioxidants, which help fight oxidative stress and promote collagen growth. Its ability to regenerate cells also comes in handy for treating wrinkles and sagging skin.

Frankincense Oil

Frankincense essential oil is an excellent option to treat age spots. It tends to kill bacteria, create an even skin tone, and soothe your skin, making it useful in the treatment of scars.

Carrot Oil

Carrot seed essential oil has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. It soothes the skin and scalp. And the antioxidants can help reduce the signs of aging.

Lavender Oil

Lavender essential heals the skin against dark spots, skin redness, itchiness, and inflammation. It is beneficial in the treatment of dry skin and eczema. The antioxidants found therein help fight the fine lines and wrinkles.
