Night creams are wonderful skin healers.
When your skin is dull and stressed out it, an overnight skin cream works wonders.
Making your own intensive night creams at home has its own benefits.
You can choose exactly what goes into your cream, you can choose the amount of cream you need to make and skip all the unwanted ingredients you do not need or allergic to.

This cream is suited for overnight skin soaks. You can use all of the ingredients I use or substitute with any of your own choice. Just adjust the percentages to make it 100%.
