Treating dry skin can be truly annoying. But the good news is, I have got you covered. Nothing can make your skin as happy as natural ingredients. I have shared some simple DIY recipes of natural moisturizers for dry skin that you can make at home. Let’s get started!

Natural Remedies:

1. DIY Shea Butter Homemade Face:

You Will Need
  • ½ cup shea butter
  • 6-7 drops sea buckthorn oil
  • 6-7 drops rosehip seed oil
  • 6-7 drops geranium oil
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil
  • Melt the shea butter in a double boiler**.
  • Once it has softened, remove it from the heat.
  • Add avocado oil and mix.
  • Add the essential oils and whip the mixture well until it develops a creamy texture.
  • Store it in a glass jar and use it as your daily face cream.

Why This Works:

Sea buck thorn oil is extremely effective in treating eczema and soothes dry and itchy skin. Rose hip seed, geranium, and avocado oils have an equally soothing effect on your dry skin while shea butter keeps it moisturized and nourished.

To make a double boiler, pour some water in a saucepan and place it on the stove. Place a heat-proof glass container that fits snugly over the saucepan. Once the water starts simmering, keep the butter on the glass container and let it melt. Keep stirring until it melts.

2. Natural Face Moisturizer

You Will Need
  • ½ cup argan oil (you can also take jojoba oil or hempseed oil)
  • ½ teaspoon emu oil
  • 4-6 drops essential oil (lemongrass, rose geranium, rose, chamomile, palmarosa, rosemary, lavender, or peppermint)
  1. Take a glass bottle and pour arg an oil into it.
  2. Add the other oils to the arg an oil and mix well.
  3. Use the blend to massage your skin.
Why This Works

Argan oil is light and suitable for soothing dry skin. Emu oil is a natural emollient that helps in locking moisture in your skin and heals it from within. Essential oils (the listed ones) have an overall healing effect, especially for dry and sensitive skin.

3. Beeswax Moisturizer:

You Will Need
  • ¼ cup beeswax pellets
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 10 drops essential oil (patchouli, Roman chamomile, vanilla, sandalwood, frankincense, clary sage, lavender, or geranium oil)
  1. Use a double boiler to melt the beeswax.
  2. Once it melts, remove it from the boiler and let it cool.
  3. Add the coconut and olive oils and whip well.
  4. Add the essential oil(s).
  5. Whip the mixture well until you get a creamy texture.
  6. Transfer the mixture to a glass jar and store it in a cool and dry place (do not refrigerate).
Why This Works

Both beeswax and olive oil heal skin conditions such as atopic dermatitis (eczema) (2). Coconut oil provides added moisturization to your skin, and essential oils promote further healing. Read More..
