For the last couple months I've added a simple facial glow serum to my routine (morning and night) that I've been making at home with a combination of oils. I recently posted about this on Instagram stories and had a lot of folks interested in the details so I thought it was worth sharing here. I've tried a lot products (insert may have a problem) over the years and I'm surprisingly really loving it and as is my skin (literally soaking it right up). Everyone's skin is different, mine is dry and I live in a cold climate, but definitely recommend giving it a try if you are looking for something new (especially great to combat winter drying).
What you need
How I make it
Once our have your supplies, this serum is super simple to make. For a 1oz bottle, I put 10 drops of each essential oil into the glass bottle and then fill will my carrier oil. Put the cap on and shake :-)
How I use it
I use the serum morning and night after cleansing and using my DIY toner (which is just Thayer's witch hazel + geranium essential oil in a small spray bottle). I use about a half a dropper full.. just enough to coat my skin but not drench it (if that makes sense). In the winter I often apply a moisturizer on top like the Beautycounter Countermatch lotion.
Note I've linked all the products (other than the essential oils which are Young Living) in my Amazon Store Front you can check the page out here. If you're interested in purchasing the Young Living starter kit or just the oils, you can do so here or feel free to email me with any questions!
If you're really want to try the glow serum before purchasing all the ingredients (totally understand), I'm happy to send you a small bottle to try, just send me an email.
