This recipe with hazelnut oil is an excellent homemade anti-aging face cream for those dealing with facial sagging and the “dreaded” jowls.
When I look at my mum I know jowls are coming my way. She is not a wrinkly person, but she has jowls, so it is in my genes. Since I don’t like jowls I’m doing all I can to prevent their apparition in a natural way.
If sagging skin is not your thing get ready to make this cream. No matter your age because even younger people need to take care of their skin to prevent age-related skin conditions.
Hazelnut oil is especially effective for flaccid skin and its vitamin E content keeps the skin moisturized and helps reduce pigmentation.

DIY Face Cream Recipe To Lift The Skin
The ingredients used in this recipe are effective to tighten the skin and delay as much as possible loose skin. It is all about natural ingredients and knowing what you are applying on your skin.
It is easy to make, but it needs a few ingredients you might not have at home. I have left a few Amazon links below in case you want to order the ingredients you need.
5gr cocoa butter or Shea butter
4gr emulsifying wax
5gr hazelnut oil or argan oil
3gr rosehip oil or jojoba oil
20 gr rosewater and 15 gr glycerin
1 teaspoon vitamin e (5gr)
10 drops geranium essential oil
10 drops rose essential oil
Broad-spectrum preservative (I like this one)

You can make this moisturizer using cocoa butter or Shea butter, depending on your skin type. I have made the recipe using both ingredients (separately). You can see the pictures below.
I like both of them, but I find the cocoa butter face cream more oily than the one I have made with Shea butter.
How to make it:
Place the cocoa butter and emulsifying wax together in a heat resistant container. In another bowl, place the rosewater combined with glycerin.
Put both containers inside another container with water (water bath) and on the stove over low heat. Make sure the water doesn’t boil.
Once the wax and butter are melted remove from the heat and add hazelnut oil and rosehip oil. Stir until the oils are well incorporated.
Slowly, pour the rosewater over the oils using the hand mixer at the same time. You could also use a hand blender or a whisk, but I find it easier with a hand mixer.
Keep mixing until the moisturizer has emulsified.
Next step is adding the vitamin E and the essential oils.
Lastly, add the preservative and stir all the ingredients until they are well blended.
Transfer to a sterilized container and keep in a cool dry place. With this amount, I was able to fill a 70gr jar.
How to use it:
The texture of the cream is rich, so is more suitable to use at night. Take a small amount with a clean spatula and apply it on the face and neck with an upwards massage.
This homemade face cream has a shelf life of 3 months. Don’t forget to date the container.
