DIY Facial Moisturizer
I love her even though she made my hormones all wacky!
I’ve shared with you about my search for the perfect skin care regimen after I had Cora. If you haven’t read about how I wash my face now, you can check that out here.
But I was also in search of a moisturizer that didn’t cause me to breakout. What I found was something that is full of healing and moisturizing properties, is simple and, well, awesome! I simply mix up a few essential oils and apply the blend to my clean face.
Here is why I chose these specific essential oils:
Frankincense - reduces inflammation, soothes skin, relaxes muscles. “Applying this oil topically may help smooth the appearance of healthy-looking skin”.
Lavender - calming and soothing to the skin
Myrrh - has a long history of use in skin care for its moisturizing properties to cleanse dry skin
Now that you know why I love these oils, here’s my blend:
DIY Facial serum
Natural Face Serum to replace your moisturizer
1 week's worth
1 drop Frankincense
1 drop Lavender
1 drop Myrrh
1 month's worth
25 drops Frankincense
20 drops Lavender
15 drop Myrrh
Mix in a dark glass jar with a dropper top. Drop 2-3 drops onto your hand and apply to face and neck after washing.
I use this in the evening after washing my face using the oil cleansing method.
I love knowing exactly what is in my moisturizer and I love the effects it has on my skin! I think you will too.
