Directions

This grapefruit aloe vera face cream will leave your skin soft and refreshed. Its moisturizing abilities come from a combination of two powerful oils from jojoba and coconut, which also work to regulate skin's oil production and soothe irritations. This natural face cream also contains aloe, which is one of the most popular ingredients in skincare products. Its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds help heal acne, irritations, and other skin damage. Grapefruit, on the other hand, contains natural compounds that help remove dead skin and vitamin C to revitalize the skin, leaving it healthy and beautiful for years to come.

  1. In a double boiler, melt the coconut oil, jojoba oil, and beeswax.(5 minutes)
  2. Take the mixture off the stove and set it aside to cool. You may also place it in the fridge.(30 minutes)

  5. Transfer the cream to a clean jar and store it in the fridge or in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight.
