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 is in my genes. I don’t want to have them and 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.
Note: Make sure you are not allergic to the ingredients, especially hazelnut oil. Pregnant or nursing women consult your doctor if you are unsure. Same goes for anyone taking medications.

If you don’t have a digital scale to precisely measure the ingredients have a look at this one.
How to make it:
Place the hazelnut oil, cocoa butter and emulsifying wax together in a heat resistant container. In another bowl place the rosewater mixed with the glycerin.
Place both containers inside another container with water (water bath) and on the stove over a low heat. Make sure the water doesn’t boil.
Once the wax and butter are melted remove from the heat and add the rosehip oil.
Mix the rosewater with the glycerin (if you bought them separately) and add it to the oils. On the other hand if you want to make your own check this homemade rosewater recipe.
Pour the rosewater slowly, using the mixer at the same time. You could also use a hand blender or a whisk but I find it easier with a hand mixer.
Place the container in a bowl with very cold water and keep mixing until the cream has emulsified.
Next step is adding the vitamin E and the essential oils.
Lastly add the preservative if you are using one.
How to use it:
The texture of the cream is rich so is more suitable to use at night. Just apply a small amount on the face and neck with an upwards massage.
