Winter Skin Homemade Body Oil

by

Winter is in full effect in southwest Missouri where I live, and my skin is feeling it! During the winter, I tend to get dry patches on my skin, especially my elbows, knees, and hands. This winter skin homemade body oil is the perfect remedy. It’s kind of a hybrid between a lotion and a body oil. Here’s what the consistency is like:

A little bit of this goes a long way! And, I especially love applying some of this to my feet and hands before bed so it can kind of soak in overnight. 🙂 I packed my version full of some pretty high end ingredients! You know how you’ll sometimes go to buy a product at the store and see that the first ingredient listed is water? Not so much here. It’s all good things for this homemade body oil.

Here’s what I used in my winter skin homemade body oil:
-shea butter
–argan oil
–jojoba oil
-vitamin E oil
–essential oil for scent (lavender)
–mica powder for a little shimmer

You basically want to your body oil to be 1 part shea butter and 1 part oil. You can mix oils (like I did) or swap out the majority for something less expensive like coconut oil or even olive oil, which is still really great for your skin. I added about 10-15 drops of lavender essential oil and a heaping teaspoon of the mica powder too, but both of those are optional and the oil would still be great without them.

Here’s what the mica powder looks like. It’s actually really great for a little (natural) shimmer or to make DIY makeups with.

Just add all the ingredients to a glass jar and use an immersion blender to blend well until no clumps remain. My homemade body oil has an almost milky color with a kind of pearl shimmer from the mica. Even though I’m not necessarily using this as a cosmetic (it’s really for dry skin), I do love how pretty and luxurious it looks.

You can simply store it in any airtight container like a glass jar with a lid. But, as with any lotion or body oil, it’s nice to have something with a little spout or pour option. I found some reusable honey bear containers at a local farming supply store (it’s a long story why I was there, but I thought these would be perfect for homemade lotions and things, so I bought them when I saw them). But you could absolutely reuse something you may already have in your bathroom or kitchen cabinets or just use a clean glass jar. Hope your skin loves this stuff as much as mine! xo. Emma

P.S. This body oil can separate over time, or in extreme temperatures. If you notice this, just give the container a good shake and things will get blended up again.

Get rid of acne, tighten skin and many more benefits with these homemade egg face mask recipes that work miraculously when it comes to skin care!

1. Lemon and DIY Egg White Face Mask

The initial stage to prepare this homemade egg face mask recipe begins with separating the yolk from egg white. You can do that manually, or you can buy egg separators from the market. Another active ingredient used in this face mask is lemon which not only clears up the oily skin but is also antibacterial. This face mask is known to clear up clogged pores, acne, and lighten skin tone.

Ingredients:

  • One egg white
  • Lemon juice (Half lemon)

Steps:

  • In a bowl take pour both egg white and lemon juice. Make sure that the bowl is clean.
  • Thoroughly whisk the mixture till you obtain a uniform paste.
  • Apply this mixture on face and neck by using a cotton pad or facial brush.
  • After around 10 minutes wash your face with lukewarm water.

NOTE: Apply this mask thrice in a week for oil-free glowing skin.

2. Honey and Egg Homemade Face Mask Recipe

The combined benefits of honey and egg white can do wonders when it comes to skincare. Egg white is known to promote and repair tissue growth which results in wrinkle-free young skin. But using egg white alone is not suitable if your skin is on the drier side. Not only does honey moisturizes the skin but it’s antiseptic and antibacterial properties also make it great for fighting acne.

Ingredients:

  • One egg white
  • Honey (Half tablespoon)

Steps

  • Take egg white and honey in a bowl. Stir the ingredients till honey mixes well in egg white.
  • Apply this solution on your face after washing your face with warm water. It is to clean up clogged pores.
  • For 10-15 minutes keep this mask on your face. It’s advisable to keep the face relaxed during this period.
  • Remove the face mask with warm water and gently dry off the skin using a soft towel.

NOTE: Avoid the application of this mask around the eyes as the skin in that area is quite sensitive.

3. Avocado and Yogurt Egg White Mask

People having dry skin will benefit greatly from this face mask. Avocado and yogurt both nourish the dry skin and turn it more soft and youthful. Plus, avocado also moisturizes the skin giving it a beautiful glow. You’ll also get rid of acne-causing bacteria because of the antibacterial nature of yogurt.

Ingredients:

  • One egg white
  • Ripe avocado (one-fourth)
  • Yogurt (One tablespoon)

Steps

  • Mash the avocado with the help of a fork till you obtain a paste which is lump free.
  • Take egg white, yogurt, and avocado paste in a bowl and mix all the ingredients until you get a thick paste.
  •  Apply a coat of this paste on your face with fingers. Make sure to wash hands before that.
  • After 15 minutes you can wash the face with lukewarm water and pat dry with a soft towel.

TIP: The face mask can drip off the face and create a mess so apply it over the bathroom or kitchen sink.

4. Skin Whitening Turmeric and Orange Egg Mask

We don’t claim that this face mask will make you instantly fair! But we do assure you that your natural skin color will come back and you’ll get rid of the summer tan with each application. Turmeric and orange juice both help in evening out the skin tone and discoloration. Both these ingredients also possess skin lightening properties. Don’t be surprised if your acne clears up too as it’s because of turmeric’s antibacterial properties.

Ingredients:

  • Orange juice (One tablespoon)
  • One egg white
  • Turmeric powder (One tablespoon)

Steps:

  • Prepare a foamy mix by whisking orange juice and egg white in a bowl.
  • Now to this foamy mix add turmeric powder and stir till you obtain a smooth paste.
  • With circular strokes of fingers apply this paste on your face. You can use it on your neck too!
  • As this mix is somewhat drippy lie down for about 15 minutes after applying it, so it does not run off.
  • Peel off the dried mask gently and apply moisturizer on the skin.

NOTE: Wear an old cloth as the mask is drippy and turmeric stains are tough to get rid off.

5. Grapes and DIY Egg White Mask

Even though it may sound a little absurd to apply grapes on the skin, it actually cleanses the skin deeply. Other advantages for the skin include improving elasticity, preventing wrinkles, and sun damage. It also prevents and cures acne because of the presence of alpha hydroxyl acids. In addition to this, it works for all skin types!

Ingredients:

  • One egg white
  • Grapes (6-7)
  • Blender

Steps:

  • Run the blender after filling it with egg white and grapes.
  • Once you obtain a smooth mix, stop the blender and pour this mixture into a bowl.
  • With a cotton pad or facial brush apply this mask on the face with upward or circular strokes.
  • Let the mask rest on your face undisturbed for 15 minutes.
  • Rinse off the mask with lukewarm water and towel dry your face.

6. Corn Starch Homemade Egg Face Mask Recipe

If you are lucky enough to be bestowed with normal skin which is neither dry nor oily, taking proper care of it is a must. Here is a face mask that works best for people with normal skin. You’ll get a smooth and clear skin after just a single application as corn starch present in this face mask absorbs the pollutants and dirt. Irritation caused due to sunburns and allergies is also known to soothe with the topical use of cornstarch.

Ingredients:

  • One egg white
  • Corn starch (two teaspoons)

Steps:

  • Take corn starch and egg white in a small mixing bowl.
  • Mix these ingredients together either using blender or a spoon.
  • Using a cosmetic brush or cotton pad apply this mix on your face.
  •  After about 15 to 20 minutes wash your face thoroughly to remove this mask.
