As mum's, we often forget about ourselves and our routines to keep our skin looking rejuvenated & youthful. *Guilty*! I used to be so exhausted at the end of the day, that I would climb into bed, makeup still on my face (If I even got as far as makeup that morning!), unwashed face, and definitely no moisturisers, or the cheapest I could find from the supermarket - and because of this, my face would suffer every month, especially around my period. And while using "cheap" moisturiser is definitely better than nothing, it really does matter what you put ON TO your body, as much as what you put IN TO your body for your skin's health.
And of course I still love a bargain! I mean, who doesn't? So making my own Glow Face Serum was the perfect solution for me. Made with natural ingredients that help nourish my skin, as well as calm my senses through smell, this is the perfect combination for me, no matter where I am in my menstrual cycle.
If you want your skin to feel EXTRA amazing, pair this serum with a gua sha facial massage as well, to smooth your face, and leave you feeling like you've had a deep tissue massage.
GLOW FACE SERUM
15 drops Lavender essential oil
15 drops Frankincense essential oil
7 drops Copaiba essential oil
7 drops Geranium essential oil
Glass bottle with dropper
Place 15 drops Lavender, 15 drops frankincense, 7 drops copaiba & 7 drops geranium into glass bottle with a dropper lid. (These can be purchased from essential oil accessory websites).
Place a small squirt each of avocado & rosehip oil into the bottle.
Top the bottle with 100% jojoba oil.
Shake before each use.
I use jojoba as it is unlike any oil, because it's not one. It's the only plant to store liquid wax in its seeds. Sharing the same molecular structure as the natural wax esters found in healthy human skin, making it more receptive to receive vital nutrients and antioxidants & restoring balance.
Jojoba oil moisturises the skin, has anti-inflammatory properties, nourishes the skin with a source of vitamins E and B, minerals like zinc and chromium, and various phytonutrients, and really does feel AMAZING. Added bonus is you can use it in your hair & scalp to promote happy healthy hair!
