Facial Serum Recipes

Facial serums don’t have to be loaded with chemicals and preservatives. Here are three oil based serums that can nourish and improve skin in record time, when applied every day. Oil based serums are the easiest to make, and are helpful for every skin type from dry to normal to oily skin. In fact, many botanical oils and essential oils help slow down excess oil production, reduce inflammation, and keep pores clear.

How to use facial serums: Apply a few drops at a time to clean skin, free of make-up. Spread serum under eyes, on forehead, face and neck. Make sure you use upward and outward strokes as you apply it. You can apply it once or twice daily. It is especially good to apply it before going to sleep, giving the serum lots of time to do its work!

Below are three recipes to try out. Watch our BLOG for a future post on how to make emulsion based serums!
