If you're growing tired of your shaving cream and need something more moisturizing in your life, look no further than this DIY shave butter.

This whipped shave butter can be used for even the most sensitive and delicate of areas and uses natural ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, and liquid castile soap. You don't have to worry about this shave butter having any artificial fragrances and chemicals that can leave your skin dry and irritated.

Coconut oil has a ton of great health benefits, and when it comes to your skin, it's a wonderful ingredient for keeping it hydrated. It can penetrate the skin on a deeper level, according to Dr. Axe, and it also smells so amazing, totally reminding us of summer and the beach!

Shea butter is super moisturizing, and can also help with inflammation. If your skin has been dry and itchy, and you haven't been able to stop scratching, shea butter is the way to go. Sweet almond oil adds another layer of moisture for your skin, as well as a closer shave, and liquid castile soap kills bacteria and is all-natural (and sensitive skin-friendly!).

Here's how to make it:

  • Add the shea butter and coconut oil on low in a small saucepan until they both melt.
  • Add the olive oil in, stir, and remove from heat.
  • Transfer this mixture into a medium-sized bowl, or keep it in the jar.
  • Let it sit in the fridge until it hardens and becomes solid.

If you kept the mixture in the jar, go ahead and transfer it into a medium-sized bowl in order to whip it up until it's fluffy, and add the castile soap. Keep whippin' until everything is combined and creamy.

To use it, just apply a thin layer and shave until smooth! You'll have beach-ready legs in no time, girlfriend.
