Time To DIY: 15 Homemade Moisturisers That Will Change Your Skincare Game!

Our skin needs a lot of pampering and care and they aren’t lying when they say that CTM is just as crucial as working out and eating healthy. Today, we’re addressing the third and the last step of the skincare routine. If you are confused, bored or unsatisfied with the gazillion moisturisers available in the market, then you have to give homemade moisturizers a try.

While making homemade moisturizers might sound like a daunting task at first, trust us, it’s a game changer. The lotions and creams available in the market usually fulfil the generic requirements of your skin and are full of chemicals and parabens. On the other hand, DIY moisturizers will serve your specific needs and be perfect for your individual skin type. So, from the best non-comedogenic moisturizers to the perfect lightweight creams, here are the best homemade moisturizers for every skin type.

Homemade Moisturizers For Dry Skin 

While there are several drugstore and high-end brands that make great moisturizers for dry skin, they still might not be effective on your skin. The reason is that these creams only hydrate your face, but do not tackle other internal problems caused due to dryness. These homemade moisturizers for dry skin will fight dryness, inflammation, fine lines, and prevent moisture from escaping.
