Natural moisturizers and homemade beauty products are becoming more and more popular. Last year, I made an investment into a number of natural oils and started making my own moisturizers. Using natural oils completely changed the look and feel of my skin. If your skin has suffered from the drying effects of winter, I implore you to try a DIY moisturizer. They are easy to make, all natural, and much cheaper than store brands. Judging by the velvety way my skin feels now, I think they are definitely worth it. I have picked a few of my favorite natural homemade moisturizer recipes and hope they help your skin feel as soft as mine! After you pick which moisturizer you want to try, check out this DIY Facial Mask How-to to complete your skin makeover.
