No one likes to look in the mirror and see a glaring reminder that time is marching on — right across your face. Of course, you can’t stop Planet Earth from making its annual trip around the sun, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some healthy ways to minimize the effects that glaring sun has on your skin. Even better, while you’re tackling those harsh rays, you can also reduce the toll that other weather elements like the wind and cold take on your skin that leave it dry and begging for moisture.

Even if you don’t care about the wrinkles caused by dry skin, you certainly don’t want the irritation of itchy skin conditions that are often the result of dry, flaky skin. If you also don’t love the idea of plastering creams and ointments with strange, chemical-sounding ingredient names all over your face, then you might want to consider making your own natural homemade facial moisturizer. Whether your skin is always dry or temporarily dry due to winter's harsh chill or stress — thank you, 2020! — you can whip up a great solution for the problem. Start with these ideas for making your own facial moisturizer at home.
