This anti aging night cream recipe helps to reduce the signs of aging naturally with ingredients like coconut water, cocoa butter, evening primrose and rosehip seed oil.

Rosehip seed oil was chosen for this night cream recipe due to its extremely high fatty acid content. It’s praised for it’s ability to fight against dry, weathered, and dehydrated skin. And it also works well at helping to minimize the appearance of scars. It’s commonly used throughout the beauty and skin care industry to help to prevent and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and premature aging.

Evening primrose oil was chosen for its naturally occurring gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) as well as its moisturizing and skin softening effects while cocoa butter lends its moisturizing and healing properties.

Coconut water also acts as a natural moisturizer to rehydrate skin. It is also rich in anti-oxidants and cytokinins which can help to prevent the skin from premature wrinkles and aging. In addition coconut water also has natural anti-viral, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal properties which can aid in healing as well as soothing damaged skin.

Anti Aging Night Cream Recipe

Ingredients:

.35 oz. emulsifying wax
.1 oz. shea nut oil
.25 oz. rosehip seed oil
.25 oz. evening primrose oil
.5 oz. cocoa butter
.15 oz. liquid soy lecithin
.1 oz. stearic acid

.65 oz. coconut water (not from concentrate)
2 ml rose water (or rose hydrosol)

2 ml vitamin E
10 drops carrot seed essential oil, optional
.02 oz. Optiphen Plus

Instructions:

I recommend using double boilers for this anti aging night cream recipe. If you don’t have double boilers it’s snap to set canning rings inside your pot of water and then use a glass Pyrex measuring cup inside the pot on top of the canning ring. Just be sure to place the Pyrex in the pot of water BEFORE you turn on the heat. You’ll need a small one cup sized Pyrex measuring cup for the water based ingredients. This only makes about 2 oz. of product but you can easily double the recipe for a larger batch. You’ll also need a kitchen or candy thermometer.

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the emulsifying wax, liquid shea butter, rosehip seed oil, evening primrose oil, cocoa butter, liquid soy lecithin and stearic acid. Place in a double boiler and add heat it begins melting. Once it melts bring the temperature of the oils, wax and butters to 158°F (70°C) and hold for 20 minutes.

While the oils, butters and waxes are melting weigh out the coconut water into a second double boiler. Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette measure out the rosewater and stir into the coconut water. Bring the temperature of the waters to 158°F (70°C) and hold for 20 minutes.

Remove both the wax, butter and oil mixture and the waters from heat. Slowly pour the waters into the oils while mixing with a stick blender. Once all the water has been added mix with a stick blender for three minutes.

Allow the night cream mixture to cool to 113°F (45°C) then add the vitamin E, carrot seed essential oil and Optiphen Plus Preservative. Mix well for about two minutes with the stick blender then pour into the container(s) of your choice.

This anti aging night cream recipe helps to reduce the signs of aging naturally with ingredients like coconut water, evening primrose & rosehip seed oil.

You can also wait a day or two for your anti aging night cream to reach its final consistency, whip with a fork then spoon into your jar(s). As my house is rather cold at the moment I found the cream was much creamier and smoother if I whipped it two days after I made it before filling my containers.

To use simply apply a small amount to your face and neck before bed paying extra attention to your eye area or other areas of concern. You can also apply this anti aging night cream during the day as you would an eye cream before applying makeup. It also works really well on dry hands and feet.

Natural DIY Coffee Under Eye Cream Recipe for Puffy Eyes

DIY Beauty Recipe for a Natural DIY Coffee Bean Under Eye Cream Recipe that helps to combat under eye puffiness, dark circles and fine lines and wrinkles!

In my last post I mentioned that I had recently purchased and tried 100% Pure Cosmetics’ Organic Coffee Bean Eye Cream made with Arabica Coffee Seed Oil and Green Arabica Coffee Seed Oil and as a result concocted my own coffee bean infused oil for creating my own version of a caffeinated eye cream that would help with those morning dark under eye circles, puffiness and even fine lines.

I strayed from the ingredients in 100% Pure Cosmetics product a bit – and looking back my next batch will definitely have some vitamin E in it – but I was rather pleased with the results of my own recipe which creates a smooth, rich cream that smells like delectable coffee. I also made sure to use natural ingredients known for their anti-inflammatory properties like shea butter, olive oil and lavender & chamomile essential oils, as well as jojoba and rosehip seed oil which have skin rejuvenating properties with evidence that they reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The end product is smooth and creamy and literally melts right into skin. A little goes a long way.

You can either make this recipe for one large container or pour the cream into smaller sized lip balm pots for gifting and sharing. If you like this recipe, you can also use the coffee infused oil you make for this recipe to create my other recipe for Handmade Coffee Lip Butter.

This Natural DIY Coffee Under Eye Cream Recipe is made using homemade coffee infused oil which can help with puffiness, fine lines and dark circles!

Natural Coffee Under Eye Cream Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

1/2 oz. coffee infused oil (see below)
.25 oz. jojoba oil
.25 oz. rosehip seed oil
.75 oz. shea butter
.75 oz. cocoa butter
1/2 ml lavender essential oil
1/2 ml chamomile essential oil (1/2 ml if 3% dilution in jojoba or 4-5 drops if pure eo)
5 drops non-GMO vitamin E

To Make Coffee Infused Oil:

Coarsely ground 3 Tablespoons of whole (unflavored) coffee beans in a coffee grinder. Combined the grounds with 4 oz. by weight of olive oil over low heat for about 15 minutes, then strain the oil using either cheesecloth or a coffee filter in a pinch. As I didn’t have cheesecloth handy, I improvised by taping a coffee filter to the top of a cup then poured the coffee and oil into the filter. Once the majority of the oil dripped through I carefully removed the filter and then squeezed the rest of the oil out into the cup.

Instructions:

Using a digital kitchen scale weigh out the shea and cocoa butter into a glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave until melted, then weigh out the coffee infused oil, rosehip seed oil and the jojoba oil and stir into the melted butters.

Next, using a different 3ml Graduated Plastic Transfer Pipette for each essential oil, measure out and add the chamomile and lavender essential oils and mix into the other ingredients. Finally, add several drops of vitamin E if desired and pour into your container(s) of choice.

How to Make Homemade DIY Coffee Under Eye Cream for Dark Circles, Puffiness and Fine Lines

This recipe will yield approximately seven 10ml or 1/3 oz. lip balm pots or will fit into a 2 oz. container or jar.

Notes from the crafting kitchen: Keep in mind that this does take some time to thicken. I’ve had products like this take a day or two to thicken at room temps and up to several hours to thicken fully in the fridge.

Also, as I did go back and experiment with various coffee options, note that using pre-ground coffee beans vs. coffee beans you grind fresh as well as the intensity of the roast – light, medium or dark – will determine the final color of your oil. Pre-ground and darker roasts make a much darker oil than grinding the beans yourself and choosing a light roast. Also, straining with a coffee filter over all other methods produces a much lighter oil with fewer coffee grains sneaking through.

Also keep in mind that ingredients from different suppliers will yield slightly varying results. I do not recommend using olive oil from the grocery store, but rather olive oil sourced specifically from a company that sells olive oil for using in soapmaking and bath and beauty.

A natural beauty DIY for making your own anti aging facial serum recipe for dry and mature skin.

The older I get the more I start to notice the fine lines on my face and the wrinkles around my eyes. Not to mention those annoying dry patches I get under my eyes whenever cooler weather strikes. While I’ve never really looked my age, at 38 I’m even more conscious of how quickly my age can catch up with me – and show! – if I don’t take care of my skin. So I created this all natural anti wrinkle face serum recipe to help keep the effects of aging to a minimum as well as to help reverse those troublesome dry spots.

This natural anti wrinkle face serum recipe is super easy to make. Just weigh the ingredients, mix and bottle. It even comes with free printable labels which make it great for gifting inside of those DIY homemade holiday gift baskets. And just a pea sized amount daily before bed does the trick. It’s also great under makeup and aids as a primer for eyeshadow to help keep your favorite eye colors in place. It absorbs quickly and leaves your skin feeling moisturized, but not greasy. Plus there’s no overwhelming perfume fragrance like many facial products have that can irritate sensitive skin.

Ingredients:

5 grams sesame seed oil
5 grams evening primrose oil
5 grams walnut oil
2 grams macadamia nut oil
5 grams rosehip seed oil
5 grams baobab oil
9 grams tamanu oil
29 grams jojoba oil
29 grams grapeseed oil
15 grams patchouli essential oil
15 grams GMO free Vitamin E oil
6 grams rosemary extract

Supplies:

digital kitchen scale
plastic transfer pipettes (at least one of each oil)
small glass pyrex measuring cup
four 1 oz. amber glass bottles with glass droppers (or two 2 oz. amber glass bottles with glass droppers)
full page Brown Kraft sticker label

Instructions:

Place the glass measuring cup the scale, set to measure grams and tare. Then using a plastic transfer pipette add the sesame oil to the cup until you reach 5 grams. Repeat with each oil and a fresh pipette with the weight indicated taring after each new oil is added. Then use different plastic transfer pipettes each for the patchouli essential oil, Vitamin E, and (liquid) rosemary extract to add the number of drops indicated. Stir well.

Now use a plastic transfer pipette to slowly fill each of the four 1 oz. amber bottles with 24 – 25 grams of the serum. If using two 2 oz. bottles, fill each with 48 – 50 grams of serum by weight. Cap each with a glass dropper cap and label.

To use simply apply a pea sized amount evenly to a clean face before bed. You can also add another pea sized amount to your neck if desired. Pay extra attention to areas with wrinkles or dry spots such as around eyes. For extra love, you can also use this natural facial serum before applying makeup in the morning. You’ll be amazed at how easily it absorbs without leaving any greasy, oily feeling behind.

If you like you can also include 5 grams of Sea Buckthorn Oil. I had planned to use this oil as part of this recipe but inadvertently forgot to order it. Sea Buckthorn Oil is typically used to treat damaged skin, ulcerations, scar tissue, wrinkles, eczema, and burns.
