Similar to my first homemade wrinkle cream this natural anti wrinkle cream is another great overnight treatment, it’s perfect for smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles in your facial skin. But you can also get some great results when using this cream on cracked heels or dry hands.

The Ingredients In This Recipe

  • Apricot Kernal oil is a delightful oil comparable to Sweet Almond, but more suitable for delicate or prematurely aged skin.
  • Wheatgerm is a seriously rich oil that is loaded with natural Vitamin E, A, D, proteins, Lecithin, and also Squalane. This great combination also makes it an excellent natural preservative in all your homemade skin care products. Wheat germ has long been used for many irritations such as rough, dry and chaffing skin, and is particularly good on mature skin, helping repeal the effects of wrinkles.
  • Shea Butter has been used to help hydrate skin for many years now, it contains high levels of anti-aging and anti-inflammatory components and is the perfect ingredient for my homemade wrinkle creams.
  • The Honey in this recipe contains natural moisturizing ability, can contain some Alpha Hydroxy Acids and also helps to gently exfoliate your skin all at the same time. Honey also has significant natural antioxidant properties.
  • The Orange has a lot of citric acid which will also help exfoliate your skin. But the high level of antioxidants present in oranges will help your skin fight free radicals and slow down the formation of wrinkles. The vitamin C content will help promote the production of collagen which keeps your sin looking younger longer.

For best results: Use this cream within 1 week (or adding a preservative at around 1% will increase the shelf life to around 12 months)

The Method

The Method for this wrinkle cream recipe is almost identical to the main anti-wrinkle cream, with just a few subtle changes.

Step 1. For this recipe we will be using a combination of orange blossom water, distilled water and honey.

Step 2. Weigh out your base oils, shea butter, and wax (not the vitamin E oil) into one of the heat proof containers. Then pour your waters and honey into the second heat proof container.

Step 3. Place both contains into a pan of simmering water, once the oils have melted heat them through but do not allow them to boil.

Step 4. Once the oils have melted and they are both warmed, remove them from the heat and combine the water with the oils.

Step 5. Now mix steadily with a spoon or whisk, if using a whisk try to keep it down to prevent air bubbles.

Step 6. As the cream starts to cool and thicken this would be a good time to add your preservative if you are using one (please check the instructions on your product for more guidance on this).

Step 7. Once the cream has reached room temperature add your chosen essential oils and the vitamin E, then give it another good stir. To stop the oil and water separating you need to stir until the cream has completely cooled.

Step 8. Spoon into airtight jars to ensure the essential oils are well preserved, clear jars need to be kept in a cool, dark place.

Use this cream in the same way as shown in the first DIY night cream recipe.

  1. I just made the cream. It is not as thick as I think it should be, but maybe it won’t be any problem.
    But either you didn’t mention when to add the shea butter or I don’t see it?
    Could you please correct that?
    Thank you

    • Hi Yvonne,

      Thanks so much for spotting this. You would add it in the first step, along with your base oils and wax. Many apologies. I have amended my post to make it a bit more clear. Thanks again.
