Avocado Anti-Aging Night Cream


Our avocado anti-aging night cream helps reduce signs of aging, wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. This formulation uses avocado oil, coconut oil, beeswax, shea butter, vitamin E oil, and essential oils. Each of these ingredients plays an important role in giving your skin a more youthful glow.


Avocado Oil

In the health food world, avocado oil is a known super food. Remember the old adage, “If you won’t eat it, then don’t put it on your skin!” ?? This is one for the books… This healthy oil is loaded with antioxidants, beta carotene, vitamin E and has anti-inflammatory properties. Add a few goodies to it, and you have our Avocado Anti-Aging Night Cream.

When used on the skin, avocado oil has been known to provide hydration, reduce itchiness, help promote elasticity, heal dry, chapped skin, and remove dead skin.

Coconut Oil

Similar to avocado oil, coconut oil is a well-known oil used in skin care. Coconut oil has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and antimicrobial properties, making it great for cleansing the skin.

When coconut oil is absorbed into your skin, it helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines by helping to keep your connective tissues strong and flexible.

🐝 Beeswax 🐝

The beeswax in the recipe will give the face cream the perfect texture and it has many benefits for aging skin. Beeswax has anti-inflammatory properties, is high in vitamin A, and can work as a natural exfoliator. Using beeswax on the face will provide hydration, reduce signs of aging, and help clear skin blemishes.

Benefits of Beeswax

  • Beeswax is completely natural, meaning that it can’t harm your skin in any way.
  • Beeswax is a great emollient for dry skin. Emollients hydrate our skin, soothing it and reducing any discomfort it may be experiencing.
  • The specific molecular composition of beeswax allows it to form a protective barrier over, and around the skin. This protective barrier also locks in all of the skins’ moisture in place.
  • Being an excellent source of Vitamin A, beeswax is essential for great skin.
  • Beeswax even attracts water molecules, helping your skin get that extra essential moisture it needs.

Shea Butter

Shea butter is one of my favorite ingredients to use on my skin. It provides hydration; repairs damaged skin, can improve skin tone, and reduce wrinkles. It is the perfect ingredient to make lotion and face moisturizers with.

Vitamin E Oil

We all know that vitamin E has amazing benefits for the skin, so of course, I am adding this into the recipe. Vitamin E can help regenerate the cells, improve skin tones, and reduce inflammation.

Vitamin E oil is one ingredient I really recommend adding to any face moisturizer for aging skin. By just adding a few drops into the night cream, you get all the added benefits that go along with it. Just using plain vitamin E oil daily can help reduce signs of aging.

Essential Oils

Several essential oils are used to reduce signs of aging, fight wrinkles, fine lines, and improve uneven skin tones.

The best essential oils for anti-aging are lavender and frankincense. Both of these essential oils are gentle and great for sensitive skin!

Frankincense Essential Oil Frankincense is a truly unique essential oil, with a rich, aromatic scent that is calming to your senses, your emotional state, and overall sense of well-being. Frankincense essential oil is cytophylactic, which means that it helps protect existing cells and encourage new cell growth. It is said to stimulate cell regeneration and protects older cells from free radical damage. It assists in restoring skin elasticity. Frankincense helps in improving skin tone. This oil also helps generate new skin cells, which makes the skin supple. It has anti-inflammatory properties that reduce swelling and redness. It also improves the overall appearance of the skin.

Helichrysum italicum Essential Oil: This multi-faceted essential oil is instrumental in promoting the health of your skin. An antifungal and antibacterial, helichrysum oil helps to efficiently heal wounds and combats skin irritations such as rashes, infections, and rosacea. Barring its hefty price tag, this oil stands out for its healing ability.

The International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents reported that helichrysum extracts also kill off various bacterial strains. For example, it can prevent Staphylococcus aureus and MRSA from causing skin infections. When used topically, helichrysum didn’t show any allergic reactions. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11397624)

Lemon Essential Oil: A key to any anti-aging lotion or serum formula is antioxidant, free-radical fighting ingredients. One of lemon essential oil effects on skin is that it oxygenates your skin cells. This helps them stay healthy and high-functioning, rather than slow down which can cause lower levels of collagen and produce wrinkles. It also has antioxidant properties to improve oxidative damage on your skin that naturally happens with time. So, by using lemon essential oil, you’ll improve the actual strength of your skin.

Neroli Essential Oil The Journal of Natural Medicines shares a study of the biologically active constituents in neroli oil that demonstrate its ability to

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Ease irritation
  • Balance redness and sensitivity

Neroli oil is a botanical cure used internally and externally, but the anti-aging benefits it can have on your skin are unmatched.

Clary Sage Essential Oil” is known to encourage the growth of clearer, smoother, calmer skin. Used in a moisturizer formula it has anesthetic effects that address redness and inflammation. Its soothing and balancing properties make it an ideal essential oil for our Avocado Anti-Aging face cream. Its nervine and anti-inflammatory properties promote restful sleep and its uplifting qualities enhance the mood to stimulate libido in both men and women. A nice touch for a night-time face cream. 🙂

How to Use Avocado Anti-Aging Night Cream

Massage a small amount of the face cream onto your face after washing and using a face toner. For best results, use the night cream daily. I find it best to use it in the evening and allow it to absorb into my skin all night.

How Long Will the Avocado Night Cream Last?

If stored in an airtight container, this face cream will last up to one year. I have added extra Vitamin E as an antioxidant like to help extend the shelf life.

FREE OF: sulfates, parabens, formaldehyde, artificial colors, synthetic fragrances, mineral oil, petroleum, and other harsh chemicals.
