DIY Homemade Coconut Oil and Aloe Vera Gel Skin Moisturizer

1 of 2

Why buy expensive, chemical-laden moisturizers when you can make your own homemade skin moisturizer using coconut oil and aloe vera gel? Both ingredients are excellent for your skin. They are also helpful for problems like eczema and psoriasis.

Coconut oil is super-moisturizing. It penetrates deep into the skin to keep it soft and supple. Packed with antioxidants, it also helps fight free radicals and slows skin aging. Plus, it has antifungal and antibacterial properties that help fight microbial infections.

Aloe vera gel is also soothing for your skin. It keeps your skin firm and hydrated. Being rich in vitamins and minerals, particularly the antioxidant vitamin E, it rejuvenates your skin and induces cell regeneration. It is also good for healing sunburned skin and fading skin spots.

Use it all over your body as you would use any other moisturizing lotion. To increase its effectiveness, apply it after bathing when your skin is somewhat moist to help lock in the moisture. It also works well as a good makeup remover.

        1. Mine came out watery. It felt great but after several days the smell was a little to heavy for my liking. How do i get this to a whipped consistency? Inuaed pure aloe from the leaf and vigin, cold pressed coconut oil. Also how long is this good for?

  1. I would also add a little bit of almond oil (which I find especially useful against dark circles), as well as beeswax or even honey (careful you use just a little bit else it will be sticky).

  2. I will use this mixture.thanx a lot.can u give me more home remedies for face pigmentation.I would be grateful for that.

  3. I made this with just the aloe and coconut oil. The original result smelled and felt wonderful. After a night in the refrigerator the entire jar set to a solid. It was useable again after I put it out on the counter for a while, but this is inconvenient for quick use. How do you keep the lotion soft enough to use right out of the fridge? Could some added liquid vitamin E help or maybe more aloe gel? Love the lotion, would just like it to be a bit creamier.

  4. Comment:I haven’t tryed it just ye I wanna know if it’s good for me coz I’ve been using da aloe vera gel from da fresh plant and it works so fast so if mixed to get with coconut oil will it work too

  5. Yes,I always use aloe plant and it works just as good. Just make sure to use a hand blender as aloe is chunky and slimy.
