Seeing the initial signs of aging on your face can be quite disheartening. You begin to miss your soft, smooth and fresh skin which once you used to take so much pride in.
However, in this modern age, it is super easy to bring back your natural glow. Adding a great DIY face serum to your skincare regime will take years off your face!
But before we disclose an amazing DIY face serum method to you, let’s first help you answer some basic questions that you must be wondering related to DIY face serums.
Why Use a DIY Face Serum Rather Than an Over-the-Counter Serum?
Buying face serums for aging skin can cost you a ton of money. By investing in a few simple and basic ingredients you can save yourself a lot of cash.
It could also be possible that an over-the-counter serum which you are looking forward to buying is out of stock, bringing your skincare routine to a halt. However, in the case of a DIY face serum, you needn’t worry about the ingredients since DIY solutions require everyday items which are easily available at any market/shop.
Another reason why you must consider the option of a DIY face serum is that it is organic and refined. Over-the-counter serums can possibly have questionable ingredients which can be harmful to some skin types, especially to sensitive skin. Instead of making you look younger, these serums can damage your skin.
Why Use a Serum Instead of an Anti-Aging Cream or Lotion?
Well, there is no doubt that anti-aging creams and lotions are commonly used for combating aging. However, a serum helps to repair your skin quickly and is more affordable, even if it takes longer to see results.
The beauty of a serum is that most of the fluid is eliminated when you apply it on your skin, leaving a high concentration of ingredients that penetrate well into your skin, reducing wrinkles, red spots, fine lines etc. A serum is also great because a little bit goes a long way.
How to Make Your Own Healthy Face Serum?
A DIY face serum is super easy which can be prepared by mixing together a few skin-supporting essential oils.
For this recipe you will need:
- 1 small dark glass bottle with a dropper
- ½ ounce of rosehip seed oil (it’s important to use unrefined seed oil)
- 6 drops of organic frankincense essential oil
- 2 drops of organic lavender essential oil
- 2 drops of organic rose essential oil
- 2 drops of organic helichrysum essential oil.
Once you have all of these essential oils, which are easily available online and at nearby stores, add them all to a ½ oz dark glass bottle with the help of a dropper. Roll the bottle between your hands to ensure that the ingredients are well-mixed. Now apply a small amount of the serum after you have cleansed your face. You can apply it before going to bed for effective results.
Could this DIY face serum be any easier and simpler? This is the great thing about DIY projects! It doesn’t have to be complicated at all. So, make this anti-aging serum at home and be on your way to having younger looking skin!
