If you are looking for a DIY cream to help make your skin supple and soft, this 3-ingredient body moisturizer is the one for you. So let’s get straight to it!

Simple Body Moisturizer Recipe

Coconut oil is the best natural moisturizer for skin, whether it is dry, oily, or normal. You may need to adjust the amount you use every day according to your body’s natural skin oil levels. Using coconut oil as a base, you can add honey and orange oil to increase its ability to make the skin radiant and tight. Honey helps make the skin soft. On the other hand, orange essential oil helps boost collagen production in the skin as well as increase blood flow.

If you have very dry skin, you can apply this after your shower. But it is most effective if used just before a shower. Keep it on for about 10-15 minutes and shower. You will see a noticeable difference in your skin in just a few days!
