Plumping Facial Oil For Dry Skin

DIY Spa Treatment: Plumping Facial Oil For Dry Skin

When your hair suffers from chemical and environmental damage, you can help restore vitality by applying a hot oil treatment. Well, when your face becomes dry from the Winter or even from too much sun, I find that applying a facial oil is a helpful solution for replacing moisture loss and for filling in fine lines and wrinkles. I've found this terrific plumping facial oil recipe from Liz Earle that I think you'll love — the smell alone will send you over the moon! You'll need:

  • 1 oz avocado oil
  • 2 tsp rosehip oil
  • 2 tsp argan oil
  • 1 borage oil capsule
  • 1 Vitamin E capsule
  • 2 drops of neroli oil
  • 3 drops of sandalwood oil
  • For step-by-step instructions on how to make your own facial oil,

    .

    • STEP 1: In a microwave-safe mixing bowl, blend the avocado oil, rosehip oil and argan oil together.
    • STEP 2: Next, cut open your borage oil capsule and your vitamin E capsule and gently squeeze them into the bowl. Mix well.
    • STEP 3: Lastly, add in the neroli oil and a few drops of sandalwood. Heat everything for about twenty seconds (it makes the borage oil and vitamin E oil easier to blend) and blend a few drops to your skin. As you apply it, don't forget to take a few deep breaths and enjoy the fragrance. This recipe is good for about six to eight applications.
