Anti Aging Serum That Works! www.primallyinspired.com

 

Hi everyone!  Welcome to Beautiful Skin Fridays, with me, Jenni Raincloud!  Since I’ve started my blog I’ve realized that everyone is essentially similar-we all want to be the best version of ourselves that we can be.  Anti wrinkle products are a multi-million dollar industry because women just want to be pretty.  I get it-it’s as prominent to us as young girls as prince charming is.  As we get older, we are conditioned to just accept that beauty fades, but the thing I can’t get out of my head is what if I ate cleaner?  What if I worked on my heart, mind and soul and were happy and peaceful inside??  And of course, what if I found a magic potion that would feed my skin the moisture it needed while firming and evening my skin?  Well, that was my aim for this week.  I have created a product that will do all these thing for our skin.  It’s a serum, so it’s easy to make and can be used as often as you want without side effects.  You ready to get started??

Ingredients:

Rosehip oil– Rosehip Oil penetrates deeply into the lower layers of the skin.  It regenerates cells and increases collagen production. It is rich in vitamin C, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and retinoic acid, which studies have shown it brightens and tightens skin!   It also helps restore skin’s elasticity, fade age spots, reduce broken capillaries, and balance oil glands.   It is very beneficial to dry, irritated and mature skin.

Sweet almond oil- Sweet almond oil is full of vitamins D, E, B1, B2 and B6, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. Vitamin E helps fight wrinkles and has a firming effect on the skin.  Almond Oil is light and absorbs easily.  Using sweet almond oil daily can greatly reduce dark circles under the eyes as well as scars and dark spots.  It helps to renew skin cells and rev up circulation.  It is wonderful at nourishing dehydrated skin. I believe it is one of the top (if not #1) carrier oils for reversing the signs of age.  In fact, it is said to be the closest to the oil found in a babies skin-how cool is that? I recommend THIS almond oil.

Cypress Essential Oil– Cypress Oil is a powerful firming oil.  It improves circulation, strengthens blood capillaries, is antibacterial, anti-infectious, and anti-microbial.  Cypress oil is amazing for varicose veins and broken capillaries.

Frankincense Essential Oil- Frankincense has skin regenerating properties.  It is an astringent, which means it tightens and balances pH.  It helps to even skin tone as well as diminishing the appearance of scars and spots.  Frankincense is anti tumor, antiseptic and antibacterial.

Geranium Essential Oil-Geranium is my favorite essential oil for the skin.  When in doubt-add Geranium.  Geranium is great for regenerating skin and revving up circulation.  It is extremely healing.  It also promotes even distribution of melanin-which helps even out the overall tone of the skin.

Cypress Firming and Anti-Aging Serum Recipe

2 TBSP. Rosehip Seed Oil (find it HERE)

2 TBSP. Sweet Almond Oil (find it HERE)

10 drops of Cypress essential oil (find it HERE)

10 drops of Geranium essential oil (find it HERE)

7 drops of Frankincense Essential Oil (find it HERE)

Mix all ingredients in a 2 ounce glass bottle (find them HERE).  You can use this serum morning and night.  I prefer to only use mine at night.  Like all serums, less is more.  It only takes a small amount to cover your entire face and neck.  If you use too much, you will feel quite greasy!

So there you have it!  A short and sweet recipe that will moisturize, firm the skin and even tone.  It’s a well rounded anti aging serum that I’m sure you are going to love!!

See you next Friday!

  1. I not used to using serums. When do you use it? Is it a face wash or moisturizer? Thanks!

    • I can’t wait to try this, this sounds wonderful. As you said a little bit will go a long way. All of the essential oils you mentioned are wonderful for your skin. Thank you for this recipe!

    • Hi Shelley, I copied this for you from some site…thanks for the question, because it made me wonder. I want to try this!
      How do you apply it? Use about a pea-sized amount of serum for the face and neck, applying the product about two minutes after your cleanser (not on wet skin). “Hydrated cells allow the active ingredient to penetrate better than dried cells,” Dr. Samuels says. Then, wait another three to five minutes before applying your moisturizer. “Moisturizers help restore the keratin protein back to the skin, so they generally have a higher pH,” he said. “If you put on your serum then immediately put on your moisturizer, it can somewhat decrease the effectiveness of your serum.”

      Also, it’s important to use face serums primarily at night, because UV rays and oxygen can cause them to oxidize — another reason to make sure you always keep a tight lid on your products.

  2. So does this recipe include the rosehip oil you mention? It’s not listed in the ingredients?
    Thanks,
    Robin

    • Primally Inspired

      Hi Robin, Yes it’s 2 tablespoons of the rosehip oil. It’s listed in there, but that big annoying ad is right in the middle of it and looks like it’s not included. Sorry about that! Hope you love this serum as much as me :)

  3. Hi I was researching your different eye serums and see two different ones. Are they both just as good or is one better than the other?

  4. Hi..Can’t wait to try this! What is the shelf life of this serum?

  5. I like the idea of adding cypress essential oil. That’s seem great for firming especially for late 30’s skin. Definitely giving a try!
    Have a beautiful weekend!

  6. I am curious if you have ever tried using vetiver in your blends for anti aging since it has cell regenerating properties?

  7. Do i need a moisturizer after using the serum or is this moisturizing enough?

  8. Oh and how long is the shelf life?

  9. I was also wondering how long the shelf life is. If I would add vitamin e for a preservative, how much would I put in?

  10. Ladies…the shelf life of this is as long as the shortest dated oil..probably the sweet almond oil…which will be about a year…Terasa…vitamin e is NOT a preservative…it’s an anti-oxidant and cannot be relied upon to ‘preserve’ products…

    • Thanks for the information Pete. I ordered an expensive Argon oil last night while trying to find an oil that would help with firming. I’m going to the site in a few minutes to cancel and make this one instead.

  11. Hi Jenni

    I was just wondering if one could mix the firming/anti-aging serum with the vitamin c serum and have a really potent face and body serum?

    Regards
    Janine

  12. Hi! I just want to confirm how to apply this. Usually when someone in my family has applied an essential oil directly to skin it has burned like the dickens. Are you diluting this in any way? Is it just this list of essential oils? I’ve been using doterra which is supposed to be very pure and safe but we still don’t often directly apply. I’m nervous. What do you use?

    • Primally Inspired

      Hi Chris! It looks like my ad company put an ad right in the middle of the ingredient list, which is so confusing (I will talk to them about that because that’s so annoying!), but you are mixing (diluting) those essential oils with 2 tablespoons of rosehip seed oil and sweet almond oil (those ingredients are in the list right above the ad). I love this serum and I hope you get a chance to try it!

  13. hi i bought soy-rice peptide, haloxyl, tripeptide, lupine protein and jojoba oil and mixed them all together in a little jar along with water & glycerin. is this a safe mixture to put on my face ???

  14. What to you recommend for the morning? You said you prefer to use it at night.

  15. Could you add some emulsifying wax and whip this into a cream?

  16. Hi, Curious if carrot seed oil would be good to add to this? Thanks!

  17. Could this be an all over face and eyes serum? Of course, I would add carrot seed oil also.

  18. I made it and tried on my face. It doesn’t spread very easy. Can I mix it with vegetable glycerin or my moisturizer, and how much should I mix in?

  19. Hi again! LOVE this serum! I’m using a coconut oil and baking soda wash before but I kind of feel like the coconut oil is leaving a barrier and I don’t know if the serum is getting down in my pores good enough? thoughts? thanks!

    • Primally Inspired

      Hi Emily! Coconut oil (and other oils) are known to form a barrier to protect your skin from the elements, but using oils together actually help aid and transport the oils deep into the pores. So you are good!!

  20. Hi! I’m new to EOs and I was wondering if you have to use almond oil or if a substitute carrier like grapeseed or apricot would work. We have a nut allergy in the home and I don’t want to use almond if possible!

  21. Hallo, I’ve been using this for about a week my skin is soft but I don’t see any other difference in my face, can you tell me how ling does it take to work?

    Thank You.

  22. Hi! :) Inam about to make this and I don’t have geranium (or carrot seed). Is there something else you would recommend instead? I’ve been using a blend of lemon, lavender & frank and really like that. Maybe I could substitute lavender?? Or should I just wait and order geranium…

  23. Can this serum be used in the eye area? And what moisturizer do you follow it with? Thanks!!

  24. Hi Kelly,
    I really like your blog and have learned a lot of little nice tricks :)

    I have all the ingredients you mention in this recipe but instead of Almond oil I have jojoba oil. Will this work instead of sweet almond oil?

    Thanks again for the great info you provide.

    • Primally Inspired

      Hi Celia! Thank you so much for your kind words – that means a lot to me and I’m so grateful to have you as a reader :) Yes, jojoba oil (or any good oil like argan, avocado, even olive) is perfect – jojoba is what I use for this recipe instead of the sweet almond oil, too 😉

  25. I love all of the recipes you have for skin care. I am definitely going to try some of them. I am no longer going to buy any skincare lines. I have spent a MINT on skincare because it is so important to me. Thanks!!

  26. Hi! Great recipe – I can’t wait to try it. I was wondering if this recipe is safe for acne skin? I have very sensitive oily acne skin and just want to be super cautious before I try anything new on my skin. Thanks!!!

    • Primally Inspired

      Hi Henna! It is safe for acne prone skin, however it’s always a good idea when introducing any new product on your face to give it 2-3 weeks for your skin to get used to it to determine if it’s something that you want to continue. It’s normal to have an initial breakout period of a few days while your skin gets used to any new product. But I will say that I have a few acne prone friends who use this serum and love it!
