During the Summer months I tend to have dryer skin. Now, that might be opposite of how you feel about your skin. I know a lot of people say their skin is dryer during winter months. Our family tends to spend a lot of time outdoors especially in the Summer and the sun really tends to make my skin pretty dry. That is why I have made some really great products with natural ingredients that hydrate my skin and help keep it soft. I love my facial roller and I wanted to share that recipe today! This DIY facial moisturizer is super easy to make leaves your skin glowing.
Hydrating and Glowing DIY Facial Moisturizer Tutorial
You’ll love this DIY facial moisturizer because it leaves your skin soft and glowing. I chose pomegranate oil as the best facial moisturizer carrier oil for its many benefits. According to the School of Natural Skincare, “Pomegranate oil is a wonderful addition to your natural skincare products. It is rich in antioxidants and polyphenols that give the oil natural protection qualities, shielding skin from UV and free-radical damage. It supports cell regeneration.”
Kunzea might be a new oil for you! It’s amazing. It is an oil from Australia and has similar properties to Tea Tree. It’s wonderful for helping keep skin clear and fresh. I think it works better and it smells lighter than Tea Tree.
Geranium oil has been used for centuries to promote radiant skin. According to Dr. Axe, ” [Geranium Oil] has the power to minimize the look of wrinkles because it tightens facial skin and slows down the effects of aging.”
Palmarosa essential oil is also highly regarded for it benefits to skin. Accrording to Idea Hacks, “the oil’s cytophylactic nature means that it encourages cell regeneration and growth of new tissue beneath the skin. This helps in healing dark spots and scars while repairing the effects of aging.”
I store my homemade moisturizer in a roller bottle so that it’s very easy to apply and carry along in my purse. The roller bottle is also beneficial for stimulating circulation and keeping your skin refreshed.
