Summer can wreak havoc on all skin types. Without optimal skin care, dry skin types become deserts under the sun, and oily skin can become overly dewy. Gel moisturizers are sweeping the market this summer because of their ability to complement both skin types.
Our experts got to work in creating a gel facial moisturizer using EG’s very own Soothe & Smooth blend; a nourishing and soothing blend made for all skin types, that’s even safe enough to use on children and sensitive skin.
Gel moisturizers are hydrating and moisturizing to dry skin, and because they’re water-based, they don’t contribute to the overproduction of sebum in oily skin types. With the addition of aloe vera, an emollient, and glycerin, a natural humectant, this DIY gel moisturizer just might save your skin this summer.
78 g Distilled Water
15 g Aloe Vera Gel
3 g Glycerin
1 g Polysorbate 20
1 g Xantham Gum
1 g Preservative
Yield = 3.5 oz (100 g)
Weigh your ingredients. Sprinkle xantham gum onto water and use a stick blender to combine. In a separate bowl, combine Polysorbate 20 and Soothe & Smooth. Then, add in aloe vera, glycerin, and the preservative. Combine this mixture with the water and xantham gum. Pour the gel into an airtight jar. To use, scoop out a dime size amount of gel and press onto your face evenly, avoiding the eyes and mouth. Enjoy smoother, softer, more radiant skin.
