Is this what your skin feels like this time year!?
It’s that time of year where everyone’s skin turns into a dry, scaly mess! It may not affect everyone (especially those of you living in the south), but I hear so many people mentioning and complaining about it, including myself! I utilized my own knowledge of oils and did some more research to come up with this simple, easy DIY Facial Serum for Dry Skin recipe!
What I discovered is, in terms of supporting skin health, especially in the winter, frankincense essential oil is key! After looking at countless recipes, I decided to try a rather simple one. I prefer to make it myself not only to save money, but so I know EXACTLY what is in the concoction I am putting all over my face (which ultimately enters the body system; our SKIN is the largest organ of the body after all!).
Back to the recipe….I chose frankincense as the primary essential oil, then also added tea tree and lavender essential oils. As my carrier oil, I chose almond oil because I like the texture of it (it’s not too oily and soaks in fairly quickly).
Now, there are PLENTY of other essential oils I could have added to this mix, but remember, I wanted to keep it simple. I wasn’t sure if it would work or not, but the reason I am sharing this DIY Facial Serum for Dry Skin recipe with you is because IT DID!!!!
The dry, scaly skin on my face generally happens every winter, but for some reason it was particularly worse this year. After 5 days of using this serum, once in the morning and once in the evening on a clean face, I have seen a total turn around in the appearance of my skin. I am upset with myself for not taking a before picture! This serum soothed the skin irritation I was experiencing, helped restore my skin’s natural moisture balance, and is currently supporting my now healthy, radiant skin!
