Help Nourish Your Dry Skin With This Serum
For high-quality skin oils, you want to make sure that they are certified organic and minimally processed. I like to use cold-pressed or expeller-pressed oils that are unrefined. It’s also essential to keep them in a cool, dark place. I store mine in the refrigerator and use it often. Because they are minimally processed, high-quality oils can turn rancid if not properly stored. Keep in mind, a little oil goes a long way.
Okay, it’s time to feed your skin some luscious serum! I use this recipe first thing after showering in the morning and again before bed. I find it especially helpful for dry or sensitive skin, but feel free to play with other carrier oils and essential oils to craft a perfect serum for you.
