I made a jazzy DIY recipe for water based lotion to help keep my skin healthy and moisturized through the chilly winter months. The ingredients are all natural and super nutrient rich to give your skin a seasonal upgrade.
I went with a water based lotion recipe in order to ensure moisture penetration, moisture retention and super soft and supple skin. I have come to notice that my skin responds better to cream based moisturizers when the weather starts to get cold and dry.
Here is a recipe that can change your winter skin LIFE!
10 oz. Purified Water
3 oz Solid Oil (Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Babasau Oil etc.)
2 oz. Sunflower Lecithin
10 drops of Essential Oil
*1 Tsp. Rosehip Oil (great for cell turnover & repair)
The recipe is great and has a shelf life of 2 weeks, with refrigeration the lotion may last up to a month’s time.
*You can also add some tea tree oil/ honey to help preserve the lotion.
