I’ve been fighting my 30s ever since I realized I was no longer in my early 20s. Luckily, I have my mother’s skin; however, for a few critical years I took this genetic gene pool benefit for granted. One day I woke up and realized I had wrinkles! So I did what every sane 28-year-old woman does and began searching for grays. Thankfully I color my hair every six weeks so those, whether I had them or not, were nowhere to be found. My next line of defense was putting a better moisturizer on my skin and stop buying the same brands and formulas I used when I was 16.
As soon as I started working with Kelapo Coconut Oil, I started putting it directly from the jar to my face. I noticed how soft it made my skin feel and gave me back my “I’m still in my 20s” glow. So when I found a way to improve upon what I thought was perfection, I said why not? If you’re battling the wrinkles, or just want an organic moisturizer, try this delicious Three Ingredient Moisturizer, adapted from Eating Bird Food.
What you’ll need:
1 tablespoon Kelapo Coconut Oil
2 1/2 tablespoons shea butter (You can also use cocoa butter, but I had a hard time finding 100% pure cocoa butter that didn’t have wax and other ingredients)
1/2 tablespoon avocado oil, olive oil or almond oil (I used avocado oil because I loved how it worked in my Jasmine Coconut Oil Skin Polish)
1. Melt Kelapo Coconut Oil in small sauce pan.
2. Mix shea butter and avocado oil.
3. Stir until shea butter is melted.
4. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
5. Spoon mixture into seal tight jar, shake.
6. Let moisturizer sit until it solidifies. I put mine in the refrigerator for about an hour before moving it to my vanity.
I immediately put it on my face that night and made my boyfriend feel how soft my skin was. I’m willing to put money on the fact he’ll be using this just as much as I will. You just need a small amount, so this batch should last you a while (even if you are sharing!). Ready to make Kelapo Coconut Oil a part of your beauty routine? Try our Hair Mask and Lip Balm as well.
