    Default Homemade face cream ingredients??

    I have a hard time buying commercial skin care products because I'm either not satisfied with the ingredients or I just don't trust the product to work.

    So I want to make my own face cream but I'm not 100% sure what to put in it. I want it to be light and non greasy but have it leave my skin super soft and protected.

    Can anyone give me any pointers?

    Have you tried natural oils? I find jojoba and papaya very light and non-greasy and perfect for the warm months. In the winter I will use camellia kissi oil. If it is bitterly cold and my skin is extremely dry, I will use the tiniest amount of shea butter.

    Why are you trying so hard to blend in when you were born to stand out

    For the winter season, I am applying Shea Butter, Jojoba oil and avocado oil, the shea butter is for moisture, avocado oil supports skin elasticity, it is rich in nutrients and has hydrating qualities, and jojoba oil is for for moisturizing qualities.
