When thinking about the colder weather you might like to consider learning how to make the best winter moisturiser which protects skin from harsh winds, cold temperatures and central heating. Adding perhaps a few more oils/butters which can help protect, condition and enrich your skin with extra vitamins and minerals can help skin damaged by the summer sun. In this recipe I have used Mango Butter which is rich in Vit C, reduces environmental damage, packed with antioxidents and softens the skin. By adding essential oils like Rose, Frankincense or Geranium you can enhance your moisturiser even more. Please remember to only use up to 1% essential oils on a leave on product.
