4 Beauty Products You Can Make in an Instant Pot

Soothing anti-aging face cream

Certified integrative nutritionist and fitness instructor Dora Vandekamp, founder of the blog Biohack Your Beauty, offers this recipe for an anti-aging cream that will leave your face hydrated and silky smooth.


  • 1/2 cup organic jojoba oil

  • 1/2 cup organic coconut oil

  • 1/4 cup beeswax

  • 2 T organic cocoa butter

  • 2 drops Frankincense essential oil

You can find these items in your local craft stores, Walmart, Target, and Amazon.


Add jojoba oil, coconut oil, beeswax, and cocoa butter to your Instant Pot. Select “Keep Warm” on the settings panel and allow ingredients to slowly melt — around 20 minutes. Add Frankincense essential oil then spoon into a Mason jar. It’s best if used within six months.

Hard lotion bars

The most abundant Instant Pot beauty recipes online are currently for hard lotion bars, which offer the concentrated moisturizing effects of traditional lotion without all the mess. They also make pretty neat gifts.
