Home Made Moisturiser

There is no need to splash out loads of money on expensive moisturisers when you can make these yourself at home with no chemicals and natural products.  This particular recipe takes minutes to do, all it requires is a glass jar to store it in (no need to refrigerate) and it will last for a long time.

When we age our skin starts to lose it elasticity and that’s when wrinkles and sagging begin to set in.  Here is a moisturiser which includes avocado essential oil which is a real anti-ager.

I would always recommend anyone who is taking any kind of medication, or suffer from a skin disorder to just ask your GP if the oils are suitable to use because it will be absorbed into the skin.
