I’m really excited to share this recipe with you today! This recipe has transformed my skin.
I’m not getting any younger, folks (that’s not why I’m excited). The everyday stresses of life (you know the whole moving across the country, raising a toddler that doesn’t want to sleep through the night these days kind of things) and the lack of sleep has really had my skin in all sorts of disrepair. My skin was dry, has acne, black heads, wrinkles, sun spots, uneven skin tone… you name it, I probably had it. So, I created this DIY Repairing and Anti-Aging Skin Serum to help my poor skin look much, much better.
This repairing serum includes natural and healthy ingredients like rosehip seed oil and essential oils that help reduce fine lines and have skin clearing properties. After applying the serum, I love to follow it up with aloe vera gel.
Rosehip seed oil has amazing anti-aging properties. It is high in vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin D, and vitamin A. It is rich in essential fatty acids, can help increase cell turnover, and increases collagen production. It is great for hydrating skin and treating skin issues like eczema and rosacea.
Within one week of using this serum, my skin looked healthier and hydrated, my skin tone was more even, fine lines have reduced, my few little breakouts started clearing up, and overall, my skin had a more youthful appearance. I could’ve done the smart thing and taken a before and after picture of my skin. But of course, I didn’t think of that. Some days it’s hard enough to remember to shower. The best part is I had many of the ingredients on hand, and it was very inexpensive to make.
DIY Natural Repairing and Anti-Aging Skin Serum
I follow this serum up with a dime size amount of Aloe Vera Gel (I use this kind). I tried premixing it, and it works, it just separates a lot and you would have to shake it before each use. I like to keep it simple around here.
Cleanse your face as you would normally (I use the oil cleansing method) at night. Add 3-5 drops of the serum to your hands and apply to face in a circular motion making sure you apply it to problem areas. This oil has a natural yellow tint to it, so it is best to use it at night, but you can also use it in the morning as the tint does fade over time.
Rosehip seed oil is a dry oil, meaning it absorbs very quickly and doesn’t leave an oily residue on your skin. I have naturally have very dry skin, so I “wash” my face using the oil cleansing method. I will apply a thin layer of olive oil to my face and then apply this serum.
*If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, make sure to talk to your medical provider before using any essential oils.
In the mornings, I also use this amazing Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream to get rid of dark circles and puffy eyes! It works amazingly well.
I love this serum and how it has helped make my skin look younger and brighter!
