2 Simple Moisturizing Lotions

Did you know you can make your own moisturizing lotions in the kitchen?
Moisturizers stay on you skin to hydrate your skin and prevent your skin from dehydrating. Many simple moisturizers are usually emulsions of water and oil. I prefer the ones which are water based, meaning where oil droplets are suspended in water.

    Rose water and Avocado Lotion
    Ingredients:
    rose water
    avocado oil
    clean bottle
    Procedure:
    add equal amounts of rose water and avocado oil into the bottle
    shake the bottle well just before use.
    Rose water Lotion
    Ingredients:
    rose water
    pure glycerin
    clean bottle
    Procedure:
    add 1 teaspoon of glycerine to 9 teaspoons of rosewater into the bottle
    shake the bottle well before just before use.

For home made lotions, refrigerate them and use within 1 day.


Since water and oil do not dissolve one another, you need an emulsifier to get water and oil to form a suspension.
I like to use lecithin lotions. You can add liquid lecithin to the oil part of the lotion or dissolve lecithin granules in the oil, by heating both the oil and the water portions of the lotion in separate containers simultaneously within a saucepan of water. For such lotions, you have to slowly add drops of warm oil to the warm water once the granules are dissolved. Now that is really troublesome.
Avocado oil already contains lecithin.
