Tips and warnings

There’s no end of anti-aging skin care recipes on websites like www.makingcosmestics.com and www.pioneerthingking.com. You can search for books in the DIY area of any big bookstores or online bookstore. Some components like essential oil and Q10-enzyme have to be bought from a cosmetic shop or a grocer. Store the mixtures in glass jars and put the glass jars in the refrigerator to enhance their life expectancy.

Never use fingers to apply anti-aging cream on your face. Bacteria and other contaminants from your fingers can easily be transferred into the cream and make it rot. Use a spatula for application. If you are allergic to any component of the cream, find other appropriate components to replace the old ones. Some people are allergic to essential oil, especially lavender oil. Before using essential oil to make anti-aging cream, try putting a drop on your skin.
