I celebrated my fortieth birthday this year. I decided that this is the year to upgrade the way that I moisturize my face. I researched various carrier oils and essential oils and created this awesome homemade organic firming anti-aging face serum. This organic face serum is easy to make and works great!
In less than a week I noticed very positive results. My face appeared much more firm and I even appeared well-rested, which I can assure you that I am not! I highly recommend making your own organic facial serum, it saves you money and is fun to do.
Last year my face cleansing routine was cleansing using the oil cleanse method (OCM) and then I would slather Vitamin E Oilon my face and that is it. This year I have added two new steps to my facial care routine. First, I began to use kombucha aloe facial toner after cleansing. Once the toner dries I apply this facial serum. It takes a bit more time but honestly I am in and out in less than five minutes. I do this routine in the morning and before bed and I am loving the results!
Face Serum Indgredients
These are the ingredients that I chose to use in this homemade facial serum (I use all organic ingredients):
Rosehip Oil penetrates deeply into the lower layers of the skin. It regenerates cells and increases collagen production. It also brightens and tightens the skin! Rosehip oil helps restore skin’s elasticity, fade age spots, reduce broken capillaries, and balance oil glands. It is very beneficial to dry, irritated and mature skin.
Sweet Almond Oilis full of vitamins D, E, B1, B2 and B6, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Vitamin E helps fight wrinkles and has a firming effect on the skin. Using sweet almond oil daily can greatly reduce dark circles under the eyes as well as scars and dark spots. Almond Oil is very light and absorbs easily, it is wonderful at nourishing dehydrated skin. Cypress Oil is a powerful firming oil. It improves circulation, strengthens blood capillaries, is antibacterial, anti-infectious, and anti-microbial. Cypress oil is amazing for varicose veins and broken capillaries.
Frankincense Oil has skin regenerating properties. It is an astringent, meaning it tightens and balances pH. It helps to even skin tone as well as reducing the appearance of scars and spots. Frankincense is antiseptic and antibacterial.
Geranium Oil is great for regenerating skin and is extremely healing. It also helps to even the distribution of melanin which helps to even out the overall tone of the skin.
Carrot Seed Oil has a rejuvenating effect on the skin. It not only works to help smooth skin, but assists with cell regeneration. For this reason, it can help to fade scars and improve the tone of aging skin.
