If I wanted to, I could make a pretty good living as a tree frog. I don't know about you, but the stages of winter bring out my face perfectly. A scaly nose? Plus minus 5 degrees. Chin flakes? We are at zero. A few degrees lower, I'm already scaly all over. (As a bonus, of course, I always have a cold, so I'm terribly beautiful overall.) That's why I deal with skin nutrition in the winter more than usual.
Last year I ran on oils in the winter, this year thanks to the cream mixed according to today's recipe (which was created in cooperation with the Ekokoza eshop)
, I found out that it goes even better
. Since the scales continue to avoid me, I'd almost say quite well.
To the caring oils , of which raspberry also provides SPF protection , vitamin E , an expert on dry skin, olive squalene , an effective fighter against dehydration, and beeswax, which locks it all in the skin, have been added. (Under normal circumstances, a photo of the ingredients would follow; since I'm crazy, I've had the recipe taken for a long time, I'm not at home and I don't have the ingredients with me, I'll add it later.)
To prepare you will need:
How to do it:
The procedure probably won't surprise you. First measure the ingredients ; according to the volume, I added beeswax, raspberry oil, nimbus oil, olive squalene and acai berry oil in a ratio of 5:5:5:2:1. Heat in a water bath and set aside after dissolving into a homogeneous mixture.
Add a few drops of essential oils ; I'll admit that I'm in lavender season right now (sprinkling essence in the bath, on the duvets, on clothes) , so I couldn't miss this soothing essential oil , I chose sage because it's one of the most beneficial essential oils ever - it helps balance sebum production, has an anti-inflammatory effect , is a strong antioxidant, balances skin tone. If you're comfortable with a different EO combination, go for it!
Finally , scoop up a little vitamin E gel on the end of a stick and mix it into the mixture, which you pour into the prepared cups, ideally pre-washed with lukewarm water with grapefruit extract.
The finished cream behaves more like a solid oil; it picks up and spreads without problems. I apply it to slightly moistened skin for faster absorption and maximum effects - thanks to the water, it penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin.
Neem oil , which is waiting for you at Ekokoze when you order over 500 CZK, is one of the most popular oils in terms of skin care (you probably know it by its English name, "neem oil") . It is easily absorbed, has a huge amount of vitamins and fatty acids and intensively and long-lasting hydration; it has the ability to prevent moisture loss , which beeswax will also ensure. Nimbus oil is prized especially for its ability to eliminate small wrinkles and restore elasticity to the skin.
Raspberry oil , in addition to smelling wonderful, provides a high SPF factor ; itself has SPF 28-50 against UVB rays, 8-10 against UVA. Similar to nimbus oil, it is very rich in fatty acids , it is said to be among the most antioxidant oils.
The acai fruit ranks among the so-called superfoods , so it is no surprise that the oil is also super. It will be the greatest treasure for maturing skin (smaller tip if you are already worried about wrinkles - make a skin oil from an argan base with a mixture of acai berry oil, vitamin E and sage). Easy absorption and a high amount of vitamins take care of a deep restart of the skin.
Olive squalene prevents moisture loss, strengthens the skin's natural barrier. Due to its structure almost identical to sebum, it is very natural for the skin and helps the other ingredients to penetrate the individual layers better. Excellently regenerates and restores damaged skin . And by the way – it provides that velvety finish that we know from silicone bases under makeup. Just without the silicones.
I've been using the cream daily since the beginning of January and it's been great. I also apply it under the eye area and since I consistently apply it to damp skin, I have no problem with the decorative facade not sticking; it can be absorbed very well.
