Now that I’m–gulp–over 30, I’ve noticed that I can’t use the same beauty products I used when I was 21. I’ve also become a bit more “crunchy” and like to use products that are more natural, like essential oils.
I was doing a little “research” on Pinterest for natural skin care and came across a DIY anti-aging serum and decided to give it a try!
Here’s what I used:
~1 oz lavender oil
~1 oz jojoba oil
~1 oz Vitamin E oil
~1 oz Frankincense oil
I mixed it all together and poured it into my glass dropper. Boom. Done.
Here’s a picture of me without makeup (don’t judge me; I have two kids) before I started using the serum:
I applied the serum every night after washing my face/before bed:
So, let me start by saying that the lighting in my bathroom SUCKS so these pictures may not be the best at comparing. Having said that, I COULD tell a difference, if ever so slight. I saw a small difference in the look of my skin but I saw the biggest difference in how it felt. It felt softer, more hydrated, less tight (you know when your skin is dry and it gets that tight feeling? That’s what I’m referring to), and smoother. I also noticed that any blemishes I got went away SUPER fast (I’m talking the NEXT day they were gone)!
Was it worth it? I think so. I mean, its not like some “revolutionary thing” (for me anyway) but I’m pretty pleased with the positive effects on my skin, so I’m going to keep using it until its gone.
