Anti Aging Serum DIY
Washing, toning, and moisturizing are all important parts of your daily skincare routine. And, while I often use products that I buy at the store, I like to make homemade alternatives as well.
This facial serum recipe is something simple that you can make at home when you don’t want to head to the store. It takes only a few minutes to make with a few simple supplies.
One of the reasons that I like to make my own beauty products is that I can control the ingredients. If you’ve ever taken a look at the beauty products at the store, you probably recognize very few of them.
And, many of the chemicals in our personal care products have never been tested for safety. Since our skin absorbs everything we put on it, that’s definitely a concern.
How can I make anti aging serum at home?
This is a very easy beauty recipe. You will need a dropper bottle, a carrier oil, and several essential oils. You simply combine the ingredients in the bottle and shake gently. Apply the serum once a day to your face.
Which essential oil is best for aging skin?
There are several different EOs you can choose from when you make this. I like Frankincense, lavender, and valor. But, other good choices include lemon, carrot seed, sandalwood, and rosemary.
Since I apply this to my face, it’s important that I like the way it smells. Pick the oils that you like the fragrance of when you make yours.
What’s a carrier oil?
You can’t apply EOs directly to your skin. They are too strong and will probably cause a rash or irritation. Instead, you need to put them in a carrier oil.
There are quite a few different types of carriers. I’ve used jojoba oil in this anti aging serum DIY. But, you can also use argan, olive, grapeseed, or sweet almond. You can use whichever one you have on hand.
I like jojoba oil because it doesn’t clog your pores. And, while I don’t often have breakouts, clogged pores can make your skin look unhealthy.
How much does this make?
This will make enough for one small dropper bottle. There are no preservatives in this DIY beauty recipe. So, it’s important that you make up a small batch at the time.
I like to store mine in the refrigerator to help it last longer. This also makes it a refreshing way to wake up in the morning. Don’t store it anywhere that is hot and humid.
What EOs are best?
I don’t recommend one brand over the other. As long as you are buying pure oils, you should not have a problem. Make sure that you look at the ingredients before you buy. When I can afford it I look for organic oils because they are more likely to be pure.
When you’re looking for a natural anti aging serum, purity is important.
This is what you need for this DIY:
- 1 oz dropper bottle
- organic jojoba oil
- 3-9 drops frankincense essential oil
- 4-9 drops lavender essential oil
- 3-9 drops valor essential oil blend
- Add the essential oils to your dropper bottle.
- Pour in the jojoba oil
- Return the top to the bottle and shake gently.
- Apply to your face once or twice a day after you tone.
