A friend recently told me about her struggles with acne and dry skin. We usually associate acne with oily skin, but dry skin can be acne-prone, too. Sometimes acne-fighting treatments are very drying, so replenishing the skin with moisturiser is a must. In this last part of my clear skin series, I share a recipe for a homemade moisturising balm. Many moisturisers have a high water content that evaporates quickly once applied. This light moisturiser with all-natural ingredients retains moisture without being heavy on the skin. Shea butter nourishes the skin and helps to reduce inflammation. Hemp seed oil hydrates without clogging the pores. This oil is similar to the lipids of human skin and therefore penetrates the epidermis deeply. Tamanu oil, a cure-all for many skin problems, is anti-bacterial and helps the regeneration of the skin. You can find the recipe for this beauty DIY and pretty printable labels below!

Peony Rose Arrangement

You can further the effectiveness of the balm by adding a few drops of neem oils, which helps to heal acne scarring, and lavender oil, which helps to soothe inflammation. Hemp seed oils is an excellent carrier oil and ensure the essential oils reach deep into the skin.

Ingredients

  • 40 g (1.4 oz / 3 tbsp) shea butter
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) hemp seed oil
  • 10 ml (2 tsp) tamanu oil
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) wild rose oil

Instructions

1) Melt the shea butter

Add shea butter into medium, microwave-safe mixing bowl and melt in the microwave set to medium in one-minute intervals until melted. Stir in between each interval and until perfectly blended. Alternatively, set up a water bath to melt the shea butter.

 

2) Whip up the balm

Stir the hemp seed oil, tamanu oil, and wild rose oil into the shea butter. Then fill a large bowl with ice cubes and place the mixing bowl with the melted shea butter and oils between the ice cube. Using a hand-held mixer with beaters or whisk attachment, whip the mixture until white, fluffy and tripled in volume, which takes approximately 5 minutes.

 

3) Store the balm

Transfer the homemade moisturising balm into a dry, sterilised jar or container and use our printable for labelling.

How to use the homemade moisturising balm

After cleaning the skin, gently massage a small amount of the moisturising balm into your face and neck. You can use the moisturiser twice daily. If your skin feels extra dry prime with my DIY floral toner first.  Hot temperatures may soften the balm, and I recommend to put the balm in the fridge to set again.

Storage and shelf life

You can store the balm in an airtight container away from light for up to 3 months.

How to print the label

Print the label on DIN A4 or letter size self-adhesive or sticker paper and cut out along the grey outline. Adhere the label to your bottle or spritz bottle. The label comes in different sizes, giving you more options when choosing a bottle or container.

We recommend printing the labels on self-adhesive vinyl sheets. Vinyl sheets are water-resistant and will ensure the label stays pretty, and the colours don’t come off when exposed to water or humidity. Vinyl sheets can be found in printing shops or online. They are available for inkjet as well as for laser printers and can be used in the same way as regular printing paper. We used Photo Paper Direct’s A4 Inkjet Creative Vinyl Stickers Matt to print our labels.
