Homemade Anti Wrinkle Cream

Homemade Anti Wrinkle Cream

antiwrinklecream

Looking for a homemade anti wrinkle cream?  This homemade anti wrinkle cream is easy to make and inexpensive.  Now that I am in my 30’s I am thinking about wrinkles.  I don’t have that many, but they emerge from time to time, especially around my eyes.  I know I need to nourish my skin more.  What to buy?  Lately I have no clue, even organic skincare can have ingredients that are sketchy and hard to pronounce (bad sign).  My search began for a homemade anti wrinkle cream.  I started researching and experimenting.  The first thing I had to order was beeswax, everything else I could buy at my local health food store.  And then, finally….

My beeswax arrived! I have been waiting for 2 weeks for this important part of the recipe.

The secret ingredient in this homemade anti wrinkle cream? Rosehip seed oil.

Rosehip seed oil is the best oil available for anti-aging and cellular regeneration.

Essential fatty acids in rosehip seed oil give it moisturising properties and the antioxidants and beta-carotene may help to prevent signs of ageing. It may also promote wound healing by stimulating tissue regeneration. The vitamin A is said to help combat wrinkles, sun damage and uneven skin tone.

“Through testing, rosehip seed oil has been shown to regenerate the skin, reduce scars and wrinkles, prevent the advancement of wrinkles and aging, and help skin to regain its natural color and tone.  Rosehip seed oil contains Vitamin A, which helps to delay the effects of skin aging, assists with cell regeneration, and promotes collagen and elastin levels to increase.  This results in firmer, smoother, and more youthful skin with greater elasticity.  I have noticed improvement with wrinkles, age spots, acne, and overall skin tone.

Anti Wrinkle Cream

2 tsp jojoba oil

1 tsp coconut oil

3 tsp apricot kernel oil

3 tsp Rosehip seed oil

1.5 tsp beeswax pastilles

6-10 tsp rose-water

Place beeswax, jojoba, coconut, rosehip and essential oils (basically everything besides the rose water!) in a double boiler or right in a stainless steel pan (keep your pans separate).  Heat on low very gently to melt wax about 5-8 minutes.

Stir well.

After you you remove the ingredients from the stove (I let mine cool for a few minutes because it can be really hot.)

Place in blender (be careful bc this can be very tough to clean out after).

Add in the rose water a little bit at a time (through the top of the blender).

Pulse the blender a few times and you will have a nice fluffy cream.  Remember the cleanup can be MESSY! Still worth it though.

My suggestion is to double or triple the batch (if you are doing the cream version)… place in refrigerator until ready to use.

Addition: If you have super oily skin, I would also double the rose water amount.  I have yet to try this (very soon and will update), but a reader suggested this and it makes perfect sense.  It will be lighter w/ more rose water.

If you are just looking for a Rosehip Serum, and do not have time to make the  cream…. I have found this organic one  and I LOVE it for when I am in a hurry and don’t have time to make a new batch for awhile:

You can find it HERE. Or at your local health food store.

    hi!
    i have just finished making the cream 🙂 it worked out just fine.
    I used a hand mixer, and it got nice and fluffy 🙂
    I will make this for my mum for christmas 🙂
    I tried it with the carrot seed oil, but it gives a scent that does not feel right…so i will leave it out next time. 🙂
    I also added vitamin e to it. 🙂 it looks very nice! 🙂
    Thank you so much!

    I have a question. I am new to this. I am 64 and have dry, aging skin and lots of sun damage. I am going to make your cream as soon as I get all of the ingredients. What do you put your cream in after it’s done? 🙂

    I made it today and and it came out really nice, and since I brake out with coconut oil I used sweet almond oil instead, I love it, it feels very nice on my skin. Thank you!!

    Thank you for this amazing recipe! I did it the first time and it worked wonderfully (we all loved it at home!) but have not managed since 🙁 It just does not mix for some reason … do you know why it might be doing this?

    DO NOT place the essential oils in the double boiler. You’re cooking out the effective medicinal bits when you heat essentials oils. Add these to either the rose water or separately into the blender.

    Also if you don’t have a double boiler don’t heat your ingredients in the microwave. This zaps the nutrients out of anything you put in there. I use a heat safe measuring cup inside a pot of boiling water.

    I just made this today. I didn’t have jojoba oil so I threw some vitamin e oil in instead. Do you know if this lotion is safe to use on kids? It feels great, and I’d love to toss their aveeno and use this instead!
