Homemade Skin Care Recipe: Vitamin E oil and cocoa butter microdermabrasion
submitted by sophia, alamogordo, NM 88310
Tip description / details:
I have found through my own trial and error, that if you mix aluminum oxide with vitamin e oil and cocoa butter, the results are satisfactory. I have somewhat oily skin, and I use to use just plain soap on my face to get rid of the oil. I later noticed that though my skin had not lost it's moisture, I began to see signs of blotching. AHH!!! I always knew that cocoa butter helped moisturize your skin, along with vitamin e oil. So I decide to buy some vitamin e caps with cocoa butter (queen helene) along with two teaspoons of aluminum oxide and scrub my face with it. I first start by applying a HOT wash cloth on my face to open up my pores. I then apply the cream I've made ( aluminum oxide, cocoa butter, and vitamin e) to my forehead, both cheeks, and chin. In a circular motion I work the cream into my skin. I also use a tool I got from Igia ( the ones with the little thingys protruding out of it; and go over my face about three to five times. I like to feel it!! I then jump in the shower and rinse the crystals and dead skin off; sometimes using a wash cloth or or scrub sponge for a last wipe over. It rinses right off with no residue. After my shower, I splash my face with cold water to close my pores back up to prevent dirt from getting in there. My face has always been smooth, but now it glows. I do this everyday, at least once. I have a one year old daughter, so she keeps me busy.. this doesn't take long for me. If you have a little more time, repeat the circular massage, and or use your tool as many times over your face as you want. I haven't had any irritation. I like to believe you are scrubbing away the dead skin cells, and moisturizing with key ingredients like vitamin e oil and cocoa butter ( emu oil also for penetration, read up on it)at the same time. I glow, and I don't pay a lot. the most expensive thing to buy is the crystals. I use 100 grit, and they are available on ebay for as low as 5 pounds for $15. Five pounds will go a long way. Make your cream as strong or weak as you want. Just add or decrease.. Hope this helped. Now all I need is a larger tool to massage with!! haha
