Daytime Facial Serum

DFS_YL_FB

I have a confession, I haven’t used lotion in years. Not on my body or my face. I stopped using them due to the many toxins that are in personal and cosmetic products. Many people are shocked to hear that and ask me about my beauty routine. This post will share with you my favorite homemade daytime facial serum.

This recipe was inspired by my favorite homemade sunscreen recipe from my friend Louise at Loula Natural. I love this daytime facial serum because it allows for sun protection without nasty and toxic chemicals and is so nourishing for the skin. It’s one of my favorite additions to my skin care routine!

Daytime Facial Serum Ingredients:

 

As always I highly recommend using high quality therapeutic grade essential oils which you can learn more about here. Lavender is able to promote tissue regeneration and is great for combating excess sebum on the skin. It’s one of my favorite oils for anti-aging.  Cypress provides circulation support which is helpful in reducing sagging skin and it is a powerful antioxidant. Cypress is also beneficial for oily or troubled skin  helps to protect and revitalize the appearance of your skin!  Carrot Seed Oil also has many benefits for skin and is naturally high SPF.  Sesame Oil is high in Vitamin E and is easily absorbed to heal, smooth and protect dry skin while also cleansing clogged pores. It make a great carrier oil for the daytime facial serum

How to Make your Daytime Facial Serum

Mix the carrier oil (sesame or coconut is great too for extra natural SPF) and essential oils in bottle and use! Seriously, it’s that easy! I love making my own facial serum because it takes seconds. My skin has been so soft, smooth and glowing since I have been using this recipe and Im so happy I can share it with you! I hope you enjoy it!

Homemade Antioxidant Facial Serum

Antioxidant Facial Serum

I love making my own homemade skin products. After learning more about products and ingredients, there are so many toxins in commercial brands that have no place on the human body. Our skin is our largest organ so it is important to be mindful what we put on. This homemade antioxidant facial serum is easy to make and literally makes your skin GLOW! Here is my recipe!

I love coconut oil! To eat, to cook with to wear! Seriously, its all-purpose and I love it. Make sure it’s organic non-refined virgin coconut oil (where-to-buy). It’s a staple in my house and I have a tub in the kitchen and one in the bathroom for beauty products. It also made my Medicine Cabinet Must Have list! It is the base I use for most of my products, including this anti-oxidant facial serum.

Benefits of Coconut Oil for skin

  • Moisturizes skin
  • Antioxidant
  • Soothes skin infections
I also love essential oils. I recommend Therapeutic Grade essential oils. I use Young Living which you can learn more about here.  Below are the oils I use in my antioxidant facial serum recipe and their benefits.

Benefits of Oregano Essential Oil for skin

  • Anti-aging properties
  • Antioxidant
  • Immune Booster

*Warning- This is considered a “HOT” oil. Always make sure to dilute prior to applying to skin as it can burn.

Benefits of Orange Essential Oil for skin

  • Maintain Smooth, Glowing Skin
  • Antioxidant
  • Anti-aging properties

*Warning- This is a photosensitive oil. Be cautions when exposed to the sun within 24 hours of using this oil.

Homemade Antioxidant Facial Serum

  • 2 ounces of Organic Coconut Oil (Where to Buy)
  • 4 Drops of Oregano Essential Oil
  • 4 Drops of Orange Essential Oil

Mix the carrier oil and essential oils in a glass bottle with a pump (where to buy). Apply to face as needed. This high concentration of active ingredients contains a potent dose of anti-aging and antioxidant ingredients. A small amount goes a long way and should last for several weeks. The coconut oil will harden in colder temperatures so you may need to heat up the jar under warm water or place a small amount and warm up in the hands before applying. My face feels so smooth and soft and healthy since using this antioxidant facial serum.
