In this simple homemade moisturizer recipe for face I mix aloe vera gel with a little oil. That’s it!
- 4 tsp of aloe vera gel. I use Lily of the Desert, but you can also take the gel directly from an aloe vera leaf.
- 1 tsp hazelnut oil (it regulates excess sebum). Other vegetable oils that can be used for moisturizing a combination skin (oily T-zone) are: almond oil, wheat germ oil, grape seed oil.
Directions: Mix the ingredients till a homogeneous gel is attained.
Result: an aloe vera gel moisturizer with a very pleasant texture and a non-greasy finish.
Homemade Moisturizer Recipe Variations
- Oily Skin: aloe vera gel can be combined with grape seed oil (it regulates the process of skin greasing);
- Dry Skin: aloe vera gel + almond oil, avocado oil, rose-hip seed oil or olive oil. To choose the most appropriate oil for your skin, check the properties and uses of 19 healing vegetable and carrier oils.
Tip: Apply the homemade aloe vera gel moisturizer right after bath to “lock” the moisture in your skin.
