What Do Moisturizing Serums Do?

A good facial moisturizer is absolutely central to natural skin health, whether your skin is dry, sensitive, normal or oily. With carefully chosen natural ingredients that suit your skin type, you can replace excess sebum with clean, beneficial oils that protect and nourish the skin.

Every good moisturizing serum starts with a base, or carrier oil, which should be light and easily absorbed in addition to having great healing and nourishing properties. Marula and jojoba both fit this criteria; plus, they’re great for all skin types!

But the real fun starts once you’ve picked your base. Then, you can starting adding precious oils and essential oils, which will help you target issues specific to your skin and its unique set of needs.

How To Customize Your Moisturizing Serum

Spray Bottle

1. Choose your favorite base ingredient

Marula oil is highly nutritious, yet very light. One of the best sources for the fatty acids that help improve the skin’s elasticity, it has been used as a natural face moisturizer for centuries in Southern Africa.

Jojoba oil is structurally and chemically very similar to human sebum. This enables it to trick the skin into halting its own natural oil production, making it especially good at balancing out oily skin. It will no

t clog pores, and as such can be used on acne-prone skin.

Specialized Oils

2. Enrich with specialized oils

Pomegranate seed oil is a nutritious and deep-penetrating oil that reinvigorates the skin and helps reverse damage. Just like the fruit, it is also loved for its antioxidant properties.

Tamanu oil has very powerful anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antibiotic properties, making it ideal for those with persistent acne. It is used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat rheumatism and skin infections.

Vitamin E

3. Add a natural preservative for longer shelf life

Vitamin E oil is a phenomenal alternative to synthetic preservatives. Its antioxidant properties will help prolong the shelf life of your serum and keep it from going rancid.

4. Create an original fragrance using essential oils

Frankincense essential oil features a complex fragrance, both woody and earthy with notes of fruit and spice. It helps protect skin cells and will even lift and tighten the skin, which naturally minimizes signs of aging.

Lavender essential oil can alleviate both anxiety and insomnia. It is said to stimulate cell growth and regeneration, as well as tone the skin. If you have acne-prone skin, it makes for a superb, gentler alternative to tea tree oil.

Geranium essential oil has a cooling and balancing effect on the skin. Its regenerative properties help revive tired-looking skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Tea tree essential oil enjoys some serious antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory powers sure to benefit oily and acne-prone skin. However, it may be too harsh and drying on sensitive skin, so make sure to avoid it if that is your skin type.
