Soft skin oil (DIY)
We all think 24/7 even when you will be reading this post there must be something else which will be going in your mind..Tell me if this is not true . A relaxing oil massage is something which we all look for and if we get this at the convenience of our home with some additional benefits then there is nothing like it.
After my Aroma pedicure I thought of making this oil again which I used before my marriage to soften skin and bring the glow to my skin.Regular massage of this oil not only makes your skin soft but relaxes your body as well.
I read about this oil in Nirogdham which is a popular magazine of herbal remedies. As the oil is pretty easy to make I immediately tried it and with in one month result was apparent. If you use this oil for whole winter then it will make your skin fairer.
So now with winters knocking at the door its time to make this skin softening oil.
Ingredients required :-
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/ 2aloevera lead
2tsp amla powder
2 tsp shikakai powder
any essential oil of your choice.(optional)
Step 1 - I got this Amla and Shikakai packet. These are easily available in supermarkets nowadays.You can use powder also.
As I didn’t get shikakai powder here I powdered it in the mixer and mixed both the ingredients together.
Step2 – You have to take aloe vera leaf and scoop out the gel.To know how to take out aloe vera gel from the leaf click here.If you are really lethargic which I am not today then you can just cut the whole leaf with its peel on and cut it into pieces.
Alo vera is the ingredient which is going to make the skin soft
Step3 -Take a pan and add coconut oil in it and let it simmer for one minute.(You have to use extra virgin coconut oil.You can use the one which we use in cooking.I am using Patanjali coconut oil .
Step4 – Now add the shikakai and amla powder in it.
Step5 - After one minutes add aloe vera gel in it.
Step 6 - Bring 2-3 boils in the oil and switch off the gas.
Let it cool down for a while.Filter the oil with the help of a sieve and pour it into a clean bottle.Your natural skin softener is ready to be used.
Massage the oil half an hour before taking bath.You can do this on weekends as well and wash it off with luke warm water.Use mild soap or shower gel in removing the oil.
When you are using the oil make sure you cover your hand, feet as well. If you can ask some maid of yours to massage it on your body for 15- 20 minutes then there is nothing like it.
Enjoy the benefits of herbal beauty remedies with this oil and let your skin glow.
