My 2-ingredients DIY hyaluronic acid serum recipe is made using Bos Essentials Hyaluronic Acid Powder and offers an economical way for you to create your own anti-aging beauty products. Plus it really is so easy to make!
Hyaluronic Acid Serum Recipe
Combine all of the ingredients in an airtight container and shake really well until it is thoroughly mixed. (I used a 9 oz. clear straight sided glass jars with silver metal lug caps that I had from SKS Bottle & Packaging which work great. But you can also use a small mason jar.)
Place the DIY hyaluronic acid serum in the refrigerator until it gels and is no longer grainy.
To use, simply apply the anti-aging facial serum to your face and neck prior to using your moisturizer or makeup.
Your serum will keep for 30 days, when stored in the refrigerator. DO NOT store at room temperature unless preservatives such as ascorbic acid and DMAE bitartrate are used to prevent bacterial contamination.
It’s also important to note, should your DIY hyaluronic acid serum go watery, it should be replaced with a new batch.
Want to supercharge this hyaluronic acid serum recipe with vitamin C? Here’s how!
Dissolve a small amount of Bos Essentials Ferulic Acid Powder at 1% in alcohol. (This will help to stabilize the vitamin C and offer additional antioxidant benefits.)
Then combine a few drops the dissolved Ferulic Acid with 2 Tablespoons Bos Essentials Vitamin C Powder and 4 Tablespoons of water.
Finally, once all the ingredients have dissolved add 1/2 teaspoon Bos Essentials Hyaluronic Acid Powder. (You can optionally also mix in 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable glycerin.) Refrigerate until gelled and apply prior to other beauty products as the first step in your beauty routine.
Use hyaluronic acid powder in an anti-aging under eye cream!
You can also use the Bos Essentials Hyaluronic Acid Powder in my anti-aging under eye cream recipe for additional anti-aging and moisture benefits! You can find my anti-aging under eye cream recipe here.
