Natural Advantage Recipes – M

MOISTURISER

Why should you consider Natural Advantage Moisturiser Recipes?

Our skin takes a beating every day. It is exposed to fluctuating temperatures, dry environments, wet environments, sun rays, dirt, cuts, bruises and everything else that our environment throws at it. 
We then expect it to be perfect the moment we are required to look our best.

DIY Facial

There is no material on earth that can do what our skin does. But still, many of us are not satisfied.

  • we bleach our skin with chemicals to make it lighter
  • we inject toxins beneath our skin to make it plumper to get rid of fine lines
  • we add silicones to make it smooth and shiny
  • we add ingredients that promise to give us a natural glow (according to many cosmetic company's, we don't have one)
  • we bake it in the sun by exposing it to too much harmful rays

We often forget what our skin does for us and how resilient it stays … even though we layer it with rubbish and toxins.

After each day of abusing your skin, there is one thing that you can do to give it a little help for the next day … add a natural advantage moisturiser and let it soak in its bath of rejuvenation.

These natural advantage moisturiser recipes do just that. From light jojoba oils to fragrant coconut oils, these natural advantage moisturiser recipes will saturate your skin with natural ingredients that help to repair and rejuvenate damaged skin layers.

Many of these ingredients have been around for centuries, testimony to the fact that if they were toxic and did not work (like many of the cosmetic ingredients today), then they would not be around.

Taking Care of Your New Product

The natural advantage moisturiser recipes that you follow always use fresh ingredients and to keep them fresh, there are no synthetic preservatives in any of the recipes. Some recipes contain water and others don't.

For the ones that do contain water, please note that once water is added, the product becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. Typically, a product will last for around 4 weeks - less in warm temperatures and longer in cool temperatures.

To maximise storage of your products, keep them in the fridge.

These are the basic signs to look out for when the product is starting to spoil :

  • changes colour
  • develops fungal growth
  • smells differently from when you made it
  • changes texture (for example, smooth to lumpy)

Treat your natural products like food. Doing so will go a long way to keeping you safe from bacteria and maximising shelf life without having to use preservatives.

Here are some simple natural advantage moisturiser recipes that are easy to make, easy to use and provide effective performance without having to add synthetically made chemical ingredients.

Recipe 1 – Mild and Gentle Natural Moisturiser with Calendula

Ingredients :

  • 90 ml coconut oil
  • 60 ml apricot kernel oil
  • 60 ml grape-seed oil
  • 60 ml sweet almond oil
  • 15 ml calendula infused oil
  • 15 ml beeswax
  • 5 ml cocoa butter
  • 60 ml strong calendula tea
  • 180 ml distilled water
  • 60 ml aloe vera gel

Group 1
Combine the coconut, apricot, grape-seed, sweet almond, calendula oil, bees wax and cocoa butter in a small saucepan and melt over a low heat.
When the mixture is melted, remove from heat and pour into a glass measuring cup and allow to cool to room temperature.
Group 2
Pour tea, distilled water and aloe vera gel into a blender. These must also be at room temperature
Turn the blender to its highest speed and very slowly add the cooled oils from 
group 1. 
Blend until the cream gets thick and white. 
When the blender makes sputtering sounds, the cream has reached the correct consistency. 
Turn blender off and pour the cream into glass jars. 
Add essential oils, 7-10 drops per 30 ml, and stir well (adding essential oils after pouring into glass jars allows you to have several different scented creams) 
Use as a day cream for normal to dry skins and as a night cream for any skin type. 
Calendula is widely regard as a rejuvenating herb.

Important - The two groups can be combined at any temperature as long as they are the same.

Recipe 3 – Natural Moisturiser for Cold Weather

Ingredients :

  • 0.5 ml borax
  • 50 ml distilled water
  • 125 ml fractionated coconut oil
  • 15 ml grated beeswax
  • 1 to 5 ml essential oil
  • 0.5 ml lecithin
  • 125 ml aloe vera gel

Combine water and borax and bring close to boiling point. 
In a separate pan mix coconut oil and beeswax and heat until wax is melted. 
Slowly add borax/water to oil/beeswax, stirring briskly, with a whisk or a hand-blender. 
Add essential oils during the whisking process – the amount depends on the strength of the scent that you like. 
Let the mixture cool to room temperature. 
Once lotion is at room temperature, add the 125 ml aloe vera gel and mix. 
Add to your container ready for use.


Recipe 4 – Light to the Skin Moisturising Lotion

Ingredients :

  • 50 ml jojoba oil
  • 50 ml stearic acid
  • 2 ml baking soda
  • 50 ml glycerin
  • 7.5 ml lecithin
  • 125 ml distilled water
  • 10 to 15 ml essential oil

Combine oil and stearic acid and heat just until stearic is melted - do not overheat or the lotion will curdle.
Combine baking soda, glycerin, lecithin and water and heat but do not boil.
Slowly add water solution to the oil solution while stirring with a whisk – the ideal heat is hot on the finger without burning.
This will foam up so make sure your container is large enough.
Use a blender and mix for several minutes.
If the mixture separates and curdles, it is too hot. Stick the container in another container full of ice water and let it cool down before trying to mix again.
Add essential oil – quantity depends on the strength of the scent you require.
Add to your container ready for use.
