    Hi Ayesha, when you prepare cocoa butter wrinkle cream, keep in mind that that proportion has to be 75% solid, 25% liquid. Coconut oil and olive oil forms the liquid whereas cocoa butter is the solid.

    Hi Maggie, the proportions for “Skin Lightening cream” are: 1/4 cup of almonds
    1/4 cup of creamy yogurt
    2 tsp of lime juice
    A pinch of turmeric powder
    1/2 teaspoon of sandalwood powder
    A pinch of saffron strands
    For “Avocado Anti-aging cream”, you need avocado and egg/yogurt. Mash some avocado and take a little egg/ yogurt. Make a paste as you make any face pack. The ratio should be around 1:1.
