Throughout the day, even if we don’t feel it, our skin is affected by dirt, dust, pollution and, in time, loses its elasticity.
In the morning, we don’t have time to take proper care of our skin, but in the evening it’s the ideal time to do that.
At night, our body temperature allows any serum, creams and masks to be completely absorbed into the skin. Beauty treatments work best when we are relaxed, and sleep is our best ally.
A very good idea, very handy is to make our own night moisturizers.
Homemade night moisturizer with green or white tea
Both teas contain antioxidants that fight against free radicals and help skin to regenerate. They are also effective in relieving psoriasis and rosacea. If you have acne, the cream acts as an antibacterial agent.
– 700 grams of beeswax
– 30 grams of almond oil
– 30 grams of coconut oil
– 1 teaspoon of rose oil
– 2 teabags of white or green tea
How to prepare
Mix all ingredients at bain-marie until they melt. Meanwhile, fill a cup of hot water and leave it to infuse for a few minutes with 1-2 teabags of green or white tea. Pour the tea over the melted preparation and mix well. Open the teabags and add the herbs in the mixture, too.
After the beeswax is melt, allow the mixture to cool for 1-2 minutes, then pass it through a very fine sieve.
The last step is to cool the cream obtained by mixing it with a hand blender until it has a smooth and fluffy consistency.
How to store it
It is good to keep it in a cool and dark place. Do not put it in the refrigerator because it will strengthen. The cream has a long shelf life because it contains oils. If you use it daily, it’s enough for one month.
How to apply?
First, wash your face, and wipe it with a clean towel. Apply the moisturizer with circular movements until it absorbs completely.
In the morning, wash your face with cold water and apply a cleansing gel.
