Transcript:Olive Oil Night Cream for Oily Skin

Hi, I'm Natasha Levitan for About.com. I love my skin and usually buy a lot of creams for hands, feet, and face. Night creams are the most expensive of the bunch. But you know what? You don't have to have a PhD to make a night cream at home. You can find the ingredients for this olive oil night cream for oily skin in your refrigerator.

Homemade Olive Oil Night Cream Ingredients

You will need:
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tbsp white wax

Melt the Night Cream Oils

First, we need to melt the oils together. The easy way is to setup a double boiler. Fill a small saucepan quarter full of water. Turn the heat to medium and set a small bowl on top of your pan. Pour in olive oil and add in white wax. As the white wax melts, stir the mixture. It usually takes a little while for the wax to melt, so please be patient.

Add Vinegar to the Cream

Remove the bowl with the mixture from the heat and leave it to cool down to room temperature. Then stir in vinegar and water. Vinegar is helpful for removing oil from the skin and it restores the skin's natural pH balance.

Store the Homemade Night Cream

You can pour in your cream mixture into a small cream container. You can store it in the refrigerator for 3-4 weeks.
