You are currently viewing DIY Cream: The 5-Ingredient Recipe for Glowing Skin

All you need are five ingredients. Your skin and the environment will thank you.

You need:

  • 15 milliliters of argan oil
  • 4 grams of Emulsan (pharmacy)
  • 3 grams of shea or cocoa butter
  • 35 milliliters of rose water
  • 5 drops of borage essential oil (dry skin) or black seed oil (combination skin)
  • Also: kitchen scales, saucepan, 2 bowls, small screw-top jar, kitchen thermometer, immersion blender

That’s how it’s done:

  1. Fill a saucepan with some tap water and place a bowl on top to create a water bath. Wait a bit for it to warm up. Melt the shea or cocoa butter in the bowl.
  2. Add the argan oil and emulsan and remove the bowl from the water bath when everything is very runny. Let the liquid cool down to 40 degrees: the kitchen thermometer helps with checking.
  3. Now place the second bowl on the water bath and add rose water. Measure the temperature again with the kitchen thermometer. The water must reach exactly 40 degrees.
  4. Now it is emulsified, i.e. oil and water are mixed to form an emulsion. Pour the rose water into the bowl, mix with the argan oil mixture and puree everything with the hand blender until a homogeneous mass is obtained.
  5. Optionally add borage or black cumin oil, stir and pour everything into a screw-top jar.
