Face oils are a great way to add some extra moisture and nourishment to your skin. They improve the protective barrier of your skin, prevent loss of water and keep your skin soft, youthful and radiant.
This DIY anti-aging face oil is perfect for treating fine lines and dark spots. It makes your skin well-nourished and moisturized, plump, firm and supple and it evens out your complexion.
What makes this face oil blend so effective in treating aging skin is a well-balanced combination of rejuvenating and regenerative oils. Here’s how each ingredient contributes to this DIY anti-aging face oil:
The Ingredients for Anti-Aging Face Oil
Jojoba oil is a perfect base for this DIY anti-aging face oil. Though not a real oil but more like a liquid wax, jojoba oil provides the skin with lots of moisture, nutrients and antioxidants. It strengthens the skin’s protective barrier and makes the skin soft and smooth.
If, for some reason, you don’t want to use jojoba oil for this face oil blend, you can replace it with sweet almond oil.
Grapeseed oil is one of the best natural oils for aging skin. It encourages collagen production and improves the skin’s tonus and elasticity. This oil also evens out the complexion, gets you rid of dark spots, protects the skin against free radicals and prevents sun damage.
Vitamin E oil is included in almost every anti-aging skincare product – both DIY and commercial. And with a good reason – vitamin E is a great antioxidant that protects the skin and helps slow down the aging process. It can boost the skin’s natural healing process and that way rejuvenate the skin.
Lavender essential oil is often used in aromatherapy and wellness products because of its relaxing and soothing properties. But it is also an amazing anti-wrinkle essential oil that can smooth out your skin and fade age spots.
Carrot seed essential oil, though not as famous as the rest of the ingredients, adds a lot of value to this DIY anti-aging face oil. Carrot seed oil has cell regenerative properties. It repairs the skin, makes it soft and supple and adds some youthful glow to your cheeks.
DIY Anti-Aging Face Oil Recipe
- 2 tablespoons jojoba oil
- 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
- 15 – 20 drops vitamin E oil
- 10 drops lavender essential oil
- 10 drops carrot seed essential oil
This DIY anti-aging face oil is super easy to make – it will take you less than 5 minutes if you have all the ingredients ready. The best would be to have all the oils at room temperature.
Into a small dark glass bottle (with a dropper, if you have one), first pour the carrier oils – jojoba oil and grapeseed oil. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix everything well.
Shake the bottle a bit before every use. Use this anti-aging oil every night as a part of your nighttime beauty routine. Just apply 2 – 3 drops over your night cream and massage it a bit into the skin.
