There are a lot of face serums available in the market and I’m not saying they’re bad but making your own skin care products comes with upper hand. I say so because first off you’ll be free of all the chemicals used in store bought products and you exactly know whats going in your homemade skin care product. Also you can save a huge amount of money and customize your thing accordingly. Today I’ll share one such product which can be easily made at home, A DIY Glow Serum.
So I made this glow serum specially for summers and the ingredients used provides cooling effect and soothes your skin. Regular use of this product will also bring glow on skin and lighten complexion. I’ve also added few organic fairness ingredients like saffron which will make your skin fairer than before. It has aloe vera which is a skin soother and will remove sun tan if you have any. Cucumber gel is the best thing you can use in summers due to its cooling effect. For moisturization, I have added sandalwood oil which will hydrate the skin without making it greasy. Sandalwood also has added benefits like removing sun tan, is anti inflammatory in nature and can lighten complexion as well. For added fragrance, you can add essential oil of choice, which will also act as a preservative. I have used peppermint essential oil here because of its cooling properties.
To store the glow serum, use a clean glass container and store in a cool, dark place. I store it in refrigerator during summers. Application is pretty simple, you can either use it as night serum (apply before sleeping on clean face) or you can also apply during day and if you are going out, do not forget to top it up with sunscreen.
