DIY: Anti-ageing serum

November 12, 2021 0 Comments

Hello everyone!


I am 36 years old and, I know that you cannot get completely rid of wrinkles, fine lines, and other ageing signs. However, you can slow the process down and make your skin look youthful. In this post, I want to share a homemade anti-ageing serum that will help reduce the signs of ageing


Ingredients: 

  • 4 tbsp aloe vera gel
  • 3 capsules vitamin E 
  • 2 tbsp rose water
  • 5 drops lavender or rosehip essential oil (optional)
  • 1 tbsp glycerin


The essential oil is optional because some people with sensitive skin avoid using them on their faces.


Method:

  1. Place the aloe vera gel in a bowl. 
  2. Add vitamin E capsules. 
  3. Add rose water and mix well. 
  4. Add glycerin and mix again. 
  5. Lastly, add 5 drops of essential oil. 
  6. Store this anti-ageing serum in a clean, airtight container. 

This anti-ageing serum has incredible benefits for your skin as it is made with all-natural ingredients. Keep reading.

Do you brush your face?!

November 02, 2010 1 Comments
Hello everyone!

Lately, the use of facial brushes seems to be gaining popularity.  There are various facial brushes available on the market; ranging from small manual ones, that look like a toothbrush, to larger electric ones with various attachments.



A soft-bristle face brush is used to get a more radiant complexion by gently loosens dead skin cells and impurities while stimulating circulation.  Most brushes are gentle enough for all skin types.  Besides deep cleansing and softening the skin, facial brushing can also help reduces the appearance of acne scars and fine lines.

How to use:

Splash warm water onto the face and neck and apply your cleansing product.  Gently massage into the skin, using the face brush, in small circular movements, then rinse with warm water.  After use, splash your face with cool water and pat dry.  Follow with a toner and moisturiser suitable for your skin type.

If you have whiteheads when using this, make sure to clean your brush with antiseptic soap and water and wash off any residue before use. Be sure to go over those spots really gently.



Tip: 

I also find that this is the quickest and safest way to get rid of blackheads.  Blackheads (impurities that block the pores) will come to the surface while brushing, making it very easy to extract with a blackhead extractor.
