{diy thursday}




It's been a few weeks since I have posted a DIY Thursday. Here we go!

My all-natural facial product called Signature Serum was a best seller since it debuted and it was just a lovely, basic product for most skin types.

I would like to give you my recipe today. It contains only 4 ingredients and is a breeze to make.

It is for most skin types, even those with very sensitive skin. Let's look at the ingredients you'll need and what they do.

If you click the ingredient name, it'll take you to a recommended source.



OLIVE SQUALANE: This is vegan and derived from olive oil, as opposed to sharks like many forms of squalane.Squalane penetrates deep into the skin and can actually aid in cell regeneration.It hydrates without being greasy, is rather light, and is gentle enough for sensitive skin. In studies, it has been shown to help those with eczema. It helps to smooth and soften fine lines.This is wonderful for all skin types.

RICE BRAN OIL: This wonderful oil can held reduce imflammation and skin irritation. It absorbs very quickly without leaving a film on the skin. This oil is antioxidant-rich, as it contains vitamin E and gammaoryzanol. Rice Bran is a great, lightweight oil to give your skin a velvety feel.

HEMP SEED OIL: Richer in essential fatty acids than flax seed oil, this contains 57% linoleic and 19% linolenic acids. This is known for anti-inflammatory properties, healing abilities, and hydrating properties. This is also a lightweight, non-greasy oil.

GREEN TEA EXTRACT: Green tea extract is chock full of EGCG, an antioxidant complex. This green tea herbal extract I like the most is also 100% USDA certified organic.

Recipe:

Simply mix equal parts of each ingredient to give you the signature serum! If doing a 1 ounce bottle, that is 0.25 ounce of each ingredient. If doing a 4 ounce bottle, for example, use 1 ounce of each.

Combine in an amber or cobalt glass bottle. Click here for a great place to buy bottles without having a minimum order.
