Make Your Own Homemade Anti-Wrinkle Cream
Commercial anti-wrinkle creams contain chemical ingredients that may harm your skin, while all-natural products are usually more beneficial but they cost a lot more.
In today’s article, we’ll give you an alternative: why not make your own homemade anti-wrinkle cream easily and using all-natural ingredients? You won’t spend that much money and you can even make some extra to share with your friends.
Your skin type
This anti-wrinkle cream is designed especially for normal to dry, mature, or sensitive skin types that are more prone to wrinkles. We don’t recommend using this if you’re under 25 or have oily skin.
The ingredients in this cream are highly nutritious and provide deep skin hydration. They also may help protect your face from free radicals and also help promote the regeneration of healthy skin cells.
Here we’ll explain the main benefits of each of its ingredients.
Virgin coconut oil has been front and center in lots of health articles lately thanks to its wonderful properties. When used topically, it’s an excellent moisturizer that’s absorbed easily by the skin. It leaves your skin feeling smooth and with a delicious aroma.
Beeswax is another basic ingredient because it helps thicken this cream. Coconut oil is ideal by itself in cooler temperatures, but it melts very quickly in heat. Thus, you need to add some beeswax to it.
Beeswax may also help remove skin impurities and refine any dark spots.
One of the most potent ingredients in this cream is rosehip oil. Because it contains lots of vitamins, fatty acids, and antioxidants, it may help stimulate collagen production and reduce your chances of getting fine lines and wrinkles.
On the other hand, it also helps fight any blemishes, stretch marks, dryness, irritation, and the adverse effects of excess exposure to the sun. In addition, it’s highly rejuvenating for the skin and may help renew skin cells.
You can apply rosehip oil directly to your skin before going to bed. However, in the morning it’s more practical and discreet to use it in the recipe we provide here.
Vitamin E is beneficial for the skin whether it’s taken orally as a capsule or applied directly to the skin. It also acts as a natural preservative, so it’s a great addition to this cream.
Vitamin E has antioxidant properties, is rejuvenating, and may help protect the skin against free radicals.
Finally, to round out this recipe you can’t forget essential oils, which provide an aromatic component and enhance the properties of the other ingredients.
We specifically recommend geranium oil, which is excellent for revitalizing the skin. Also, it helps keep your skin firm and makes this cream smell amazing.
How to prepare your homemade anti-wrinkle cream
Start by putting the following ingredients in a small glass bowl:
- 20 ml of coconut oil
- 30 ml of beeswax
Set the bowl in a warm water bath to thin these ingredients slightly and mix them with a spatula or wooden spoon.
When they’re mixed well, remove them from the heat source and immediately add the remaining ingredients:
- 5 ml of rosehip oil
- 5 ml of vitamin E
- Also, 5 drops of geranium essential oil (optional)
- 5 drops of rose essential oil (optional)
Mix all ingredients well and let them cool.
To store this cream for a longer time, we recommend keeping it in the refrigerator.
If you live in a very hot climate or don’t want to store it in the fridge, add 10 to 15 ml of beeswax to the recipe to thicken it.

Conversely, if you prefer your cream to be more liquid, you can increase the quantity of coconut oil and reduce the amount of beeswax.
