4 Homemade Night Creams All Natural
1. Homemade Night Cream for Dry Skin
- 3 tablespoons of lanolin
- 1 tablespoon of cold-pressed sunflower oil
- 1 tablespoon of almond oil
- 1 tablespoon of lavender essential oil
Melt the lanolin in a bowl on bain-marie. Add the almond oil and sunflower oil and mix well until you get a fine texture. Then take the bowl off the heat and leave it aside to cool. When the mixture begins to solidify, add the lavender oil, and mix it again. Pour the cream into a small glass jar and allow it to cool down before putting the cap on. This is the cream that will leave a soft and well-nourished skin after only one night on the skin.

Pour the night cream into a clean glass jar and store it in a cool place.
