What is the best natural anti aging skincare?

In my opinion, the best natural anti aging skincare comes from something that is extremely close to our own skin. It has a very similar cell biology, and contains everything our skin needs to repair and rejuvenate itself. Best of all, it is easily homemade. 

Now, stick with me here, because you might find this a bit surprising. But let me tell you: Don’t knock it until you try it. 

The magic ingredient for the best natural anti aging skincare you’ve ever tried is grass fed tallow. That’s right! Of course, we can add other things to make it even better, like other ingredients with great skin benefits and anti aging essentials oils. 

But first, hear me out on why grass fed tallow is simply the very best thing ever for your skin, and is the ultimate homemade anti aging skincare product. 

Pin it for later

I have been using these homemade anti aging skincare products, and I am loving the results! The ingredients are so pure and natural. There are recipes to make them yourself, or you can buy them already made. #antiaging #skincare #homemade #natural #diy

What is the best natural oil for anti aging?

Okay, so when it is at room temperature, grass fed tallow isn’t exactly the same consistency as a liquid oil. But, it is a fat, and it is definitely the best “oil” for anti aging, hands down (source). 

What makes tallow so good for skin? Grass fed tallow:

  • Is deeply moisturizing
  • Helps to prevent the skin’s loss of moisture
  • Is uniquely biocompatible with our skin cells
  • Contains fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, K, and B12
  • Is rich in minerals
  • Contains anti inflammatory conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)

It is interesting to note that this combination of fat soluble vitamins is found only in animal products, and especially in grass fed tallow. No plant oils contain this same, complete combination of skin friendly vitamins. 

You can tell how deeply moisturizing tallow is for skin the instant you feel it. Your skin drinks it right in, it doesn’t sit oily on the top of your skin like plant based oils. It’s like your skin recognizes it and can use it right away.

Nutrients in grass fed tallow

Grass fed tallow also contains omega 9 fatty acid, also known as oleic acid. Oleic acid helps other nutrients penetrate deeply into skin. Palmitic acid is in grass fed tallow as well, and it improves the barrier function of the skin. 

Palmitic acid, also in grass fed tallow, improves the barrier function of skin. Stearic acid is in grass fed tallow as well, and helps to repair damaged skin. Stearic acid also helps to improve skin’s flexibility and suppleness. 

Now here’s where the anti aging benefits of grass fed tallow get really serious. Grass fed tallow contains omega 7 fatty acids, which are some of skin’s basic building blocks. These omega 7 fatty acids help in making skin appear more youthful and healthy. Sign me up!

More natural ingredients for youthful looking skin

Tallow is pretty amazing, but there are other ingredients that can be combined with it or used alongside it that have their own anti aging properties. Here are my most favorite natural anti aging ingredients for skin:

  • Grass fed tallow – We already went over this one, but it definitely deserves to be at the top of the list!
  • Raw honey is full of enzymes and nutrients that are beneficial for skin. It also has natural preservative properties, which act as anti aging benefits for skin.
  • Rose hips are rich in vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant and helps to renew and brighten skin.
  • Aloe vera is so soothing and hydrating for skin.
  • Essential oils like frankincense, turmeric, rose, and lavender contain powerful anti aging properties.

My favorite homemade anti aging skincare

Those ingredients all sound great, but what can we make with them to actual use on our skin? I’ve come up with a number of homemade anti aging skincare products, and I’m excited to share my recipes with you. Here they are:

  • Tallow balm – This is how we make that amazing, grass fed tallow into a gorgeous and easily usable skincare product! You can use tallow balm as a stand alone moisturizer, for the oil cleansing method, for healing skin conditions, and so much more. Get my tallow balm recipe here, or grab some tallow balm here. I also have a tallow lotion recipe here
  • Honey face wash is one of the best ways to get the wonderful skin benefits of raw honey. I like to make mine with rose hips powder and anti aging essential oils. You can also use this magic mixture as a super soothing honey face mask. Check out my honey face wash recipe here
  • Rose clay face mask – This is my most favorite face mask ever. It combines everything you’d ever want in a face mask. Pink and white clay are gently detoxifying and clarifying for skin. Rose hips and chamomile soothe skin, reducing inflammation, and add a nice amount of vitamin C for brightening and renewing. Aloe vera gel soothes and hydrates skin. Rose essential oil has wonderful anti aging benefits and smells amazing. Get my rose clay face mask recipe here

Homemade anti aging face cream

Let’s say you want to jump right into making my favorite homemade face moisturizer. Let’s go over how you do that, right here. 

It’s pretty simple, and there are actually a variety of ways you can make this. I’m going to share with you my favorite way to make this natural anti aging cream recipe.

  1. Get yourself some grass fed tallow. You can render it yourself, or buy it online
  2. Melt the tallow down until it is liquid. 
  3. Measure out 1 cup of melted tallow and mix in 1/4 cup of a liquid oil. Some great choices are olive oil, avocado oil, or jojoba oil
  4. Add 48 drops of your favorite anti aging essential oils. My favorite is the Soft Skin Synergy from Plant Therapy
  5. Put the mixture into a large mixing bowl and let it solidify. 
  6. Once the mixture is no longer liquid, whip it with a hand mixer until it is light and fluffy. 
  7. Store in a glass jar at room temperature. 

That’s it! You’ve just made the absolute best homemade daily moisturizer for face that there is. 

You might find yourself reaching for your jar of tallow balm for other uses, too. At our house we use it for skin rashes, sun burns, diaper rash, and minor skin wounds. 

Natural anti aging products you can buy

Sometimes life gets busy and there just isn’t time to DIY. If that’s the case, there are some great options for natural anti aging skincare.

Is coconut oil anti aging?

Coconut oil has some great properties. It is anti microbial and antiviral, and is great for health when you consume it on a regular basis. But for skin, it’s not that amazing. 

There are some places where it can be useful for skin. In my deodorant stick recipe, I do use coconut oil. The antibacterial properties help control odor. 

If you’re making something like an anti fungal cream, coconut oil is a great choice, especially if you add an essential oil like tea tree. 

For a moisturizer, though, coconut oil is not that great. It sits on the surface of the skin without absorbing in well. Coconut oil can also actually be drying to the skin. 

So is coconut oil anti aging? Nope. For plant based oils you’re better off with something like avocado or jojoba oil. Better yet, skip the plants altogether and give your skin what it really needs with grass fed tallow.

Is olive oil anti aging?

Olive oil is nice for skin. It does act as an antioxidant, which provides some anti aging benefits. 

I usually choose olive oil whenever I want a skin friendly liquid oil in my homemade skincare. It is a great choice for the liquid oil portion in tallow balm. I also have a luxurious and super hydrating DIY shaving cream with olive oil and tallow in it
