5- Mix the ingredients together.
6- Pour the serum into a bottle for storage.
How To Use The DIY Face Serum
Start with a dry and clean face. It might be a good idea to use a cleanser to remove any oil or dirt on your face. Next, if you use one in your skincare routine, you can use a toner to help prepare your face for the serum.
Now it’s time to apply the serum. Take a small amount and massage it gently on your face using circular motions. You should then wait for your skin to fully absorb the serum.
After your skin fully absorbs the serum, you can use a moisturizer to help lock in hydration. This will ensure your skin feels very soft and supple.
If you’re using the serum during the day, it may be better to apply sunscreen to protect your skin from UV damage. Lastly, it’s important to note that you don’t have to use a face serum daily. Focus on what your skin needs and go from there.
