Is dry skin giving you the winter blues? It’s annoying enough when your hands are rough and red around the knuckles, but it’s even more aggravating when you look in the mirror and notice that the skin around your eyes looks dry—it’s as if wrinkles are setting in, courtesy of winter weather! Grrr. That’s when a vegan, cruelty-free, DIY facial moisturizer comes in handy.

We saw Sunny’s rescue remedy for dry facial skin and just had to share it here. The key ingredient is jojoba oil (pronounced “ho-ho-ba”). According to Sunny, “Jojoba oil closely resembles sebum (the oil our skin produces), so it tricks the skin into thinking it has produced enough facial oil. Basically, jojoba oil moisturizes without clogging pores.” Check out how natural and easy to make this recipe is!

  • Mix the ingredients together. For every teaspoonful of jojoba oil, add 1 drop of essential oil. Pour into a bottle.
