DIY Natural Anti-Wrinkle & Facial Serum Recipe for Mature Skin

Natural Beauty DIY - Handmade Anti-Wrinkle Serum Recipe for Dry, Aging and Mature Skin

The older I get the more I start to notice the fine lines on my face and the wrinkles around my eyes. Not to mention those annoying dry patches I get under my eyes whenever cooler weather strikes. While I’ve never really looked my age, at 38 I’m even more conscious of how quickly my age can catch up with me – and show! – if I don’t take care of my skin. So I created this all natural DIY Facial Serum Recipe to help keep the effects of aging to a minimum as well as to help reverse those troublesome dry spots.

This natural face serum is super easy to make. Just weigh the ingredients, mix and bottle. It even comes with free printable labels which make it great for gifting inside of those DIY homemade holiday gift baskets. And just a pea sized amount daily before bed does the trick. It’s also great under makeup and aids as a primer for eye shadow to help keep your favorite eye colors in place. It absorbs quickly and leaves your skin feeling moisturized, but not greasy. Plus there’s no overwhelming perfume fragrance like many facial products have that can irritate sensitive skin.

Ingredients:

5 grams sesame seed oil
5 grams evening primrose oil
5 grams walnut oil
2 grams macadamia nut oil
5 grams rosehip seed oil
5 grams babassu oil (or baobab oil)
9 grams tamanu oil
29 grams jojoba oil (clear, deodorized jojoba is fine)
29 grams grape seed oil
15 grams patchouli essential oil
15 grams GMO free Vitamin E oil
6 grams rosemary extract

Supplies:

digital kitchen scale
plastic transfer pipettes (at least one of each oil)
small glass pyrex measuring cup
four 1 oz. amber glass bottles with glass droppers (or two 2 oz. amber glass bottles with glass droppers)
full page Brown Kraft sticker label

Instructions:

Place the glass measuring cup the scale, set to measure grams and tare. Then using a plastic transfer pipette add the sesame oil to the cup until you reach 5 grams. Repeat with each oil and a fresh pipette with the weight indicated taring after each new oil is added. Then use different plastic transfer pipettes each for the patchouli essential oil, Vitamin E, and (liquid) rosemary extract to add the number of drops indicated. Stir well.

Now use a plastic transfer pipette to slowly fill each of the four 1 oz. amber bottles with 24 – 25 grams of the serum. If using two 2 oz. bottles, fill each with 48 – 50 grams of serum by weight. Cap each with a glass dropper cap and label.

To use simply apply a pea sized amount evenly to a clean face before bed. You can also add another pea sized amount to your neck if desired. Pay extra attention to areas with wrinkles or dry spots such as around eyes. For extra love, you can also use this natural facial serum before applying makeup in the morning. You’ll be amazed at how easily it absorbs without leaving any greasy, oily feeling behind.

If you like you can also include 5 grams of Sea Buckthorn Oil. I had planned to use this oil as part of this recipe but inadvertently forgot to order it. Sea Buckthorn Oil is typically used to treat damaged skin, ulcerations, scar tissue, wrinkles, eczema, and burns.

  3. is there anyway that we can buy these products from you if you make them?

    • I will have a variation of this recipe for sale in my shop soon. I am waiting on a shipment of essential oils as I plan to use chamomile in the batch I’ll be selling as well as sea buckthorn oil which I still need to procure along with some bottles.. Keep an eye on my shop at http://shop.soapdelicatessen.com or follow me via any of my social networks for updates.

  4. How much do all of these cost?! It seems like it would be really expensive if you are just making a batch for yourself. Where can you go to purchase the ingredients?

    • I linked to where you can purchase the most of the ingredients although you can also source through other online retailers or even locally with a little searching. It is a little pricey to make the first initial batch, but the ingredients will yield more than one batch. I added a few ingredients to the one I created to sell including the sea buckthorn, shea butter, and chamomile found here. I’ve been using this for a while now though and the results are so worth it – definitely less expensive than some of the anti-wrinkle creams I’ve seen/tried – plus it’s all natural. I’m hoping to also create variations for normal, combination and oily/acne prone skin.

  5. Hi, Like your page information here. How about men 50+ years old, what ingredients can you recommend? How do you normally apply this serum, when, especially for men like me? Not sure if this applies here sorry. Thx

  6. I’m wondering if you’ve created a version for sensitive / acne prone skin? Thanks

    • This is suitable for sensitive skin. The version I sell has sea buckthorn and it does not cause break outs, however you can add lavender and tea tree to this one to help prevent breakouts if you are acne prone. But no, I haven’t created one for oily skin/acne at this point.

  7. Hi!
