THE BEST ANTI-AGING CREAM CAN BE MADE IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR KITCHEN

The Best Anti-Aging Cream Can Be Made in the Comfort of Your Kitchen

Anti-wrinkle serums are some of the most expensive beauty products on the market, but you don't have to forsake your 401k to prevent crows' feet and smile lines. Some of the best anti-aging creams can be made in your own kitchen.

While a honey and egg white mask can firm things up quickly, and a two-ingredient coconut oil and vitamin E combo is fairly easy to throw together, we're looking for something with proven long-term results. Enter Green Boot Living's homemade anti-wrinkle cream. 

The mixture is filled with skin nourishing products like jojoba oil, coconut oil, and rose water, but the star of this solution is definitely rosehip seed oil. Known for its cellular regeneration benefits and its ability to increase both skin elasticity and collagen levels, rosehip seed oil is the active ingredient in many high-end beauty products.

Check out the ingredients you'll need to recreate this age-defying cream below, and then click over to Green Boot Living for the full DIY instructions.

Ingredients
2 teaspoons jojoba oil

1 teaspoon coconut oil

3 teaspoons apricot kernel oil
3 teaspoons rosehip seed oil
1 1/2 teaspoons beeswax pastilles

8-10 teaspoons rose water
