We've seen together how you can have an hydrated and bright skin even in winter with winter recipes for cosmetics. Now days are getting longer, and maybe waking up in the morning can be a bit difficult. Let's try these recipes for an express charge!
Today, we offer 4 100% natural homemade recipes to awaken not only our skin but mostly our mind. They are all very easy to make but particularly comfortable to store in a glass or plastic jar for cosmetics such as those that Stocksmetic has designed for you.
How to better start the day than with the aroma of a good coffee?
To give us a boost of energy when waking up we can try this coffee scrub in the shower.
- 40 g of coffee;
- 100 g of brown sugar or salt;
- 3 tablespoons of almond oil or jojoba oil.
After mixing the dry ingredients you can add the oil until the mixture is thick.
Coffee is an effective natural exfoliating for our skin. Ground coffee beans, in fact, not only exfoliate the skin by stimulating cell renewal but also have excellent anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effect.
Also, it is considered an effective natural remedy for the treatment of cellulite. On the one hand it helps to reactivate the bloodstream. On the other hand stimulates the metabolism, causing the body to burn excess fat.
This scrub is perfect for use in the shower on wet skin. Apply it by massaging the skin with circular motions and leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water. After the shower, as the last step, you can apply a nourishing cream for an even more fresh and soft skin.
To perfume your scrub and enhance its invigorating properties, you can add a teaspoon of cinnamon or ginger.
MOISTURIZING CHOCOLATE CREAM
Another ingredient known for its toning, moisturizing and nourishing effects is chocolate. Greedy to eat but also for our skin, it can become a great bundle of energy ready to use.
Here is our recipe for a chocolate moisturizer for the body and face.
The ingredients are:
- 10 g of dark or white chocolate;
- 5 g of sweet almond oil;
- 30 g of cocoa butter;
- 10 drops of essential oil of orange.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler with the cocoa butter. Then, add the almond oil and, when it is all well mixed, add the essential oil, stirring constantly.
Pour the mixture into a plastic or glass container and allow it to cool for a few hours, then close tightly. Your moisturizer chocolate is ready to be applied on the body and face and can be stored in a plastic jar, like those of the Thalasso cosmetic line with hermetic closure.
ORANGE, GINGER AND CINNAMON SCRUB

A great natural cleanser to clean the face is almond milk. Not only it has softening and moisturizing properties, but can be used on all skin types.
