To preserve the skin of the body from the signs of aging, it is good to treat it with ad hoc creams. On the market we find many creams, for every skin type and ranging in a range of prices. However, the healthiest ones contain only natural ingredients and are free of chemicals like paraffin and other petroleum derivatives.
In this article we will show you how to prepare one at home moisturizing body cream, nutrient suitable for all skin types with five completely natural ingredients. Plus, the preparation is super easy!
As a homemade moisturizer, how to use
Homemade creams have a short shelf life as they do not contain artificial preservatives and fresh ingredients can deteriorate. Although vitamin E also functions as a natural preservative, we recommend that you keep this cream in the refrigerator and use it within a maximum period of two weeks.
Homemade body cream: for which skin types?
It is a moisturizer that is not too oily in texture, so it is effective for all skin types. In case of very dry skin, just increase the amount of oil, while if it is very oily, you can add more aloe vera.
In addition, other specific ingredients can be added for some skin problems, although this recipe is already designed to hydrate, nourish and improve circulation.
Among the ingredients present in this cream we find almond oil, one of the most used ingredients in natural cosmetics, not only for its countless properties, but also because it is one of the cheapest. It can be applied directly to damp skin after a shower and will act as an excellent moisturizer.
