This DIY skincare recipe doubles as face cream and after shave. Jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, cacao butter, and shea butter make this cream deeply nourishing. Witch hazel is a natural astringent which soothes the skin and cleans any cuts caused by shaving, while Frankincense and Tea Tree oils work their powerful anti-inflammatory magic.
