Hydrating Serum Ingredients
- 1/4 cup aloe vera gel
- 2 tablespoons vegetable glycerine
- 1 teaspoon jojoba oil
- 1 vitamin E capsule (optional)
- 2-4 drops of essential oil like lavender, chamomile or rose
Combine ingredients in a small glass pump and shake well to combine. Apply to clean skin at night for a light, overnight moisturizer. Shake before each use if including the vitamin E capsule. Will last indefinitely if stored in the refrigerator.
Why jojoba oil?
Jojoba and avocado oil (see below) are two of my favorites for skin care recipes. Jojoba is an oil that’s very close to our skin’s natural oil, and you can use it for just about anything (much like coconut oil). It’s non comedogenic, so it won’t block pores, and, in fact, it helps oily skin level out oil generation. Plus it’s loaded with vitamin E, linoleic acid and antioxidants that regenerate skin cells.
But if you don’t have any jojoba on hand you can totally make this recipe without it, and it will still be excellent for your skin.
