Anti-aging products are expensive, and there are so many! All of the drugstore products seem to be full of chemicals and show no results and products from expensive skin care lines cost far too much. In this post I’ll show you how to take two pharmacy products and turn them into a top-of-the-line anti-aging moisturizer.

These two products are featured in my anti-aging beauty box, which you can enter to win here, but can also be found in your local Target, Wal-mart, Cvs, or any pharmacy. To make your own anti-aging moisturizer, all you need is Cetaphil Moisturizer and collagen pure capsules.

Cetaphil is a great moisturizer because it is paraben, sulfate, and fragrance free. There are no harsh chemicals, which means it’s gentle and works for all skin types. It blends easily into the skin, leaving your face hydrated but not oily.

Collagen pure capsules are small pills full of a gel made with collagen and primrose. Collagen is the protein that keeps your skin looking young and fresh. As you age, your skin produces less and less. These pills can be taken by mouth to improve the appearance of skin, but are best used to make this anti-aging moisturizer.

Tip: Primrose adds an extra calming benefit to those with eczema and rosacea. 

What you’ll need:

  • Cetaphil moisturizer
  • 5 collagen pure gel capsules with primrose

What to do:

  • Open the Cetaphil moisturizer so that you can add the collagen.
  • Cut open 1 collagen capsule, and squeeze the gel into the Cetaphil. Repeat with the rest of your collagen capsules.
  • Close the Cetaphil bottle and shake well.


Apply the mixture everyday, morning and night, after cleansing and toning the face. Using moisturizer on it’s own helps the skin to stay young, so imagine how amazing your skin will be after adding the collagen! You can also take the collagen capsules by mouth to increase the effects.
