The one beauty product that you cannot brave the winter without? Lotion, of course! With the temperatures dropping everyday and the harsh winds picking up, winter can be rough on skin. So you have to keep hydrated all season long, which means buying tons of lotion. But if you’re looking to save a few bucks, try making your own hydrating lotion at home.

There are so many recipes out there. Though, you really only need a few products–namely, raw shea butter, coconut oil, vitamin E oil, and any essential oils that you want to add for scent and/or other nourishing qualities. Start off by putting the raw shea butter and the coconut oil into a double broiler. Once melted, add in your vitamin E oil and essential oils (sweet almond, jojoba, lavender, and grape seed oils are a few options that are ultra nourishing. Then put it in the freezer for a few minutes. After, mix it all together with a blender or by hand until whipped. Put it in a container, and you’ve made your very own hydrating lotion!
