All Natural Homemade Moisturizer Recipe
*Vitamin E (softgels or oil)
First grab a re-sealable and microwave safe container. Fill it about 1/2 way with coconut oil and warm in the microwave for about 15 seconds (or until coconut oil is completely melted). Next add several drops of Vitamin E oil. This can be done by either puncturing at least 2 Vitamin E softgels with a safety pin/needle or by using Vitamin E oil (which can be found in most health food and supplement stores).
Once the Vitamin E has been added (as little or as much as you'd like) give it a good stir and pop it in the fridge for about 10 minutes (or however long it needs to turn to a solid again). After that you are all set to go! It's that simple.
I like to keep my container in my bathroom medicine cabinet. I use it every morning before applying makeup as well as every night after washing my face. As someone who has struggled with adult acne this all natural moisturizer has made all the difference!
Actually my whole family is obsessed with this moisturizer. My husband finds it gives him a closer and cleaner shave whenever he applies it the night before and even my kids ask if they can use it when they feel their skin is starting to get a bit dry. So in my book it's some pretty awesome stuff!
