DIY Facial Oil Serum

I will show you my homemade recipe for making your own nourishing facial oil!

Making facial oil has never been easier and more essential! We are starting to get to that age where the years of tanning beds and layers of makeup piled on over the years have started to take a toll on our delicate skin.

A while back I started looking at moisturizers and anti-aging serums to help repair some of the damage to my skin and I quickly found out that it was going to cost a pretty penny.

I dove in head first into some research and decided that I wanted to get natural products with ingredients that I could pronounce and with proven beauty benefits.

Facial oil serum containing nourishing oils

I went with a facial serum containing nourishing oils that have a proven track record! I love reading all their benefits and how great they are for your skin! They’re also great for other things too…like cleaning!

After about 6 months of buying this serum, I realized that I could make this product myself! And without all the fillers! I bought the ingredients right from Amazon (which I’ll link below).

The best part about making my own facial serum is that I know exactly what’s in it.

Below are the facial oils I chose to use and their benefits:

Jojoba oil is very healing and is effective in treating skin conditions like acne, eczema, etc. It can be used as a cleanser, moisturizer, or spot treatment. Not only can you ppply it anywhere on the body, but it can be used on the face without it being diluted.

Jojoba oil absorbs really well without clogging up pores and makes a great carrier oil. It has high amount of vitamin E and contains many antioxidants. Likewise, This will protect the skin from free radicals that cause damage. Plus, with its anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties you really can’t go wrong.

I like to use it as a cleanser in the shower to help with acne on my back. 

Argan oil is rich in nutrients, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory compounds. It helps to strengthen tissues in the skin and can aid in wrinkle prevention.

Agan oil makes a great lightweight moisturizer that will leave the skin feeling hydrated without it feeling greasy. Most importantly, It increases the elasticity in the skin which for me is a must after having three babies.

Rich in ursolic acid, Argan oil has powerful collagen which can aid in anti-aging and heal skin damage.

Caster oil can help in restoring the skin’s natural moisture. The fatty acids in castor oil are believed to be extremely nourishing to the skin and can help grow thicker, longer eyelashes and eyebrows. In fact, castor oil makes a great carrier oil and works well with jojoba and agran oil.

Choosing the right oils for your serum

Furthermore, when buying oils to make this serum be sure to buy 100% organic (free from pesticides and GMOs), cold pressed and unrefined, and most importantly 100% pure. We only want the highest quality oils on our skin or else it could cause the opposite effect by causing breakouts.

  1. A good article to know about the homemade facial oil-based serum. I have read the entire content and it seems to be an effective one for preparation. So far I am using the pre workout serum before going to the gym. It is a very good anti ageing agent and prevents the formation of wrinkle formation and also helps in maintaining a soothing effect on the skin. I am excited to use the serum mentioned in this blog.
