I’ve always been a big proponent of making face cream recipes at home. As long as you’ve got the right ingredients, they’re very easy to make and you’re sure that there are no toxic chemicals in the creams that you put on your face.
I have my own face cream recipes which I’ve made after many years of trial and error based on my skin conditions. Do the same thing for yourself.
Look at all the basic face cream recipe available online and experiment until you find one that best suits your skin type. Unfortunately, this is the only way it works when it comes to skin care. What works for me may not necessarily work for you.
Look for face cream recipes online and you’ll find a lot of good recipes for your skin care needs. You can usually make use of ingredients that you already have in your kitchen such as lemon, honey, avocado and baking soda . But it’s also a good idea to stock up on essential oils and other common face cream ingredients such as the following:
- shea butter
- rose water
- aloe vera
- essential oils such as jasmine, sandalwood, ylang-ylang and rose oil
Here are some face cream recipes that you can make at home.
Face Cream Recipe With Beeswax
Beeswax is one of the most common ingredients in face creams. It’s great for dry skin as it locks in moisture and helps soften the skin’s surface. It also mixes well with many other ingredients and make a good and safe sunscreen.
Here’s an extremely easy recipe that needs only beeswax and olive oil.

Face Cream Recipe With Shea Butter
Shea butter is another common ingredient for these recipes. It is especially used as an anti-aging ingredient. This is one of my favorite ingredients and I always make sure I have it available at home. In fact, you don’t even need to mix shea butter with anything to get its benefits. You can simply just massage pure shea butter on your skin – leaves it very soft.
Shea Butter is also a great ingredient to treat various skin problems such as eczema, rosacea, stretch marks and rashes.
Here’s a tutorial on face cream recipe for dry skin.

Face Cream Recipe Aloe Vera
I love aloe vera. We have a plant at home and it has served me well all these years. In the summer, when we get sunburnt (what can I say I don’t always follow my advice of not staying in the sun too much!), I just cut an aloe vera leaf and rub it on. It’s sticky but so extremely soothing.
You can make your own aloe vera face cream too.
Get rid of hyperpigmentation, black spots and lighten skin color!
Many home-made recipes don’t use a preservative. So mix only in little amounts that you can use in a week to a month
Honey is a good preservative but makes cream rather sticky.
