Olive Oil is rich in Vitamins A & E and in turn, helps in repairing skin damages caused due to various factors. It also helps in retaining skin’s elasticity thus helping in keeping the skin younger looking and hence delaying the process of aging. Coconut oil contains Lauric acid that has strong antimicrobial properties and Vit. E is a strong antioxidant.

It is a great moisturizer and gets absorbed in the skin easily. Vit.  E, as we all know, is the essential vitamin of the skin and is also a good preservative. It is used as an anti-aging agent. Wheatgerm oil is rich in Vit. A, B, and D and antioxidants. It helps in maintaining healthy skin and in regulating collagen production.

How To Make DIY Anti-Aging Olive Oil Facial Night Cream

This simple and easy-to-make night cream contains five ingredients in total and takes about 10 minutes to make.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil (you can buy from here)
  • 2 tbsp solidified coconut oil (buy from here)
  • 1/2 tbsp grated beeswax (buy from here)
  • 3 Vit. E capsules or few drops of Vit. E oil
  • 10 drops of wheat germ oil (buy from here)

Instructions:

  • Melt beeswax in olive oil using a double boiler or in microwave
  • Add solidified coconut oil to the mix
  • Add wheat germ oil and Vit. E oil
  • Add any essential oil of your choice for added benefits (optional)
  • Whip the whole mixture and store in a jar

The cream may not become fluffy in one go. If it does – depending on the quantity of coconut oil – good for you. If it doesn’t, store the cream in a jar or tub and let it cool. You can also let it refrigerate. After a while, the cream will begin to solidify.

Beeswax acts as a binding agent while making such creams. If your cream doesn’t solidify at all and stays in liquid form, you can melt 1/2 teaspoon beeswax and add to it or else use it in the liquid form itself. But too much of beeswax can make the cream solid and thus can make it difficult to scoop out while applying on face.

My cream solidified overnight. So this method worked well for me but you can try out different mixes. Since we have added Vit. E to the cream and it is a preservative in itself, the cream can easily go on for about 3 months.
