As we grow older (and wiser), we experience various health conditions that we didn’t ask for. Some are easier to deal with than others, and aging skin care can be a tricky one because results doesn’t show overnight. So to succeed, a great deal of patience and consistency is key.
If you’ve lost the smooth complexion or got crepey skin, turning to these ingredients has the potential to make you a very happy woman:
Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, which is why it’s often touted for its ability to hydrate and nourish the skin and improve elasticity. The fat in cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over skin to hold in moisture.
Cocoa butter is also rich in natural plant compounds called phytochemicals. These substances may improve blood flow to the skin and slow skin aging by protecting against damage from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
One common use of cocoa butter is to smooth scars, wrinkles, and other marks on the skin. Many women believe cocoa butter creams and lotions can be used during and after pregnancy to prevent and minimize the appearance of stretch marks.
Jojoba oil has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Topical application may help relieve dryness, flaking, itching, and related symptoms.
*People who have inflammatory skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema may find jojoba oil especially beneficial.

How to make it:
- Begin by melting the cocoa butter in a water bath.
- Once the butter is completely melted, transfer to a bowl and add in the 3 tablespoons jojoba oil.
- Stir to mix the butter and jojoba well.
- Then put the bowl in the fridge and wait for the oils to start solidifying. The mixture shouldn’t be completely solid, just halfway solidified, kind of like soft butter. So try not to forget it in the fridge for too long. If it happens though, simply allow it to thaw at room temperature until it reaches the proper consistency.
- Once you have the soft butter effect, grab a hand mixer and whip for a few minutes until it looks like a whipped cream.
- Add the essential oils and whip just enough to incorporate them into the butter.
- Transfer to a mason jar.
How to use it:
- Massage the butter cream into freshly washed damp skin.
- Let it sink in for a couple of minutes before putting clothes on.
- In a couple of weeks, your skin will be so much softer, smoother more tight, you won’t believe it!
How to store it:
You can store it out of the fridge but if your house is too warm, it will melt. If it happens that your butter melts, don’t worry, nothing is lost - you can simply re-whip it and you’ll be good to go.
Remember, consistency is key in getting results, so don't get discouraged if you don't see an immediate effect, this is normal. This blend will be effective already within 14 days of daily use.
