Here’s simple cream recipe you can try to soothe and moisturize dry skin.

Ginger Skin Crème

Recipe compliments of Spa Index.
Ginger invigorates, and oil soothes. Try this double dose for dry skin.
Ingredients:
2-inch piece of fresh ginger
2 teaspoons light sesame oil
2 teaspoons apricot kernel oil
2 teaspoons vitamin E oil
½ cup cocoa butter
Instructions:
Preheat oven on lowest setting. Finely grate the ginger just enough so that you have about an 1/8 teaspoon of ginger “juice.” To obtain the juice, squeeze the freshly grated ginger over a small bowl. Place the ingredients (including the ginger) in a glass container and heat just until the cocoa butter is melted and the oils are blended. Pour into a clean, dry container and store in a cool dry place. You can add a few drops of orange or other essential oil for a nice twist. You can find ingredients for this recipe at Mountain Rose Herbs.
