Introduction: Ultra Moisturizing Anti Aging Lotion

Naturally antimicrobial, antifungal, and super moisturizing aspects of organic coconut oil and emu oil are combined with the invigorating, pore clearing, skin toning benefits of lemon juice. together these ingredients leave your skin feeling soft, pimple free, young and smooth.

Step 1: Gather Ingredients

When selecting your oils make sure that the Emu oil is AEA certified and nothing has been added to it. I found the best deal on Amazon. 2oz costs around $10 but it lasts quite a long time. As far as the coconut oil is concerned it's best to stick with organic virgin oil with zero additives to avoid bacteria. You can pick a lemon from a tree or buy one at the store.

Step 2: Combine Ingredients

Combine ingredients into a small clean container. I used a mini IKEA container.

4 Tablespoons of coconut oil (make sure it is thoroughly stirred ahead of time as it separates when sitting)
1/2 tablespoon of emu oil
The juice of one lemon wedge

Mix gently until the consistency is smooth

Step 3: Apply to Clean, Dry Face & Neck

Apply to a clean, dry face and neck while slowly massaging around your problem areas. Such as wrinkles, dark spots or dry patches. If you feel too oily go ahead and take a clean cloth or paper towel and dab the excess off.

I just want to add that if people are making this with lemon, regardless if it's fresh or an essential oil, you should also use a sunscreen because the lemon makes the skin more sensitive. It's best to put it on ahead of time before going outside and follow with a sunscreen, or even use it only at night before bed. I'm going to give it a try and also add a couple other very light carrier oils to it. Thank you for sharing ?
