Your skin is dry. Your skin is oily. Your skin is both dry and oily. Your skin was oily yesterday, but it's dried out today.
Not only does everyone have a different skin type, but your own skin type may be different from season to season or from day to day. Here's an easy way to customize your store-bought facial cream or lotion and make it right for your skin—simply add a few drops of essential oil to the mix.
10 drops of essential oil (depending on your skin type)
3 fluid ounces of hypoallergenic, unscented face cream or lotion
Burdock for oily skin
Lavender for combination skin
Rosemary for dry skin
In a small glass or jar, mix all of the ingredients well with a spoon. Apply your custom moisturizer to your face and neck, gently massaging it into your skin. Repeat once or twice daily.
Store your new moisturizer in a sealed container in a cool, dark place. back to top
