We all want skin that looks young and clean.
Yet factors like too much exposure to the sun, pollution, not using enough sun protection, not getting a healthy diet, adopting a sedentary lifestyle, continuously going on crash diets, and depriving our body of the necessary nutrients, etc. are all the reasons why we start looking tired.
So no matter what anti-aging, night creams, day creams, or evening creams you use, there’s hardly any guarantee of good performance.
Here’s a simple recipe that will help make your skin look the best.
- 1/4 cup aloe vera gel
- 2 tablespoons vegetable glycerine
- 1 teaspoon jojoba oil
- 3-4 vitamin E oil capsules
- 2-4 drops of essential oil like lavender, sandalwood, or any other oil of your preference.
- Add all the ingredients in a bowl, if you are using fresh aloe vera gel the blend it once and strain the pulp, this will ensure an even consistency.
- Combine all the ingredients well to make the serum.
- Apply this moisturizing serum to clean skin at night, if you want you can use it during day time too.
- Shake until every use if the vitamin E capsule is included. Can last for a week if it is kept in the refrigerator.
- If you are using store-bought aloe vera gel it can last up to a month in the refrigerator.
Jojoba is an oil that is very similar to the natural oil of our bodies, and you can use it for just about anything (like coconut oil).
It’s non-comedogenic, so it doesn’t block pores, and actually helps oily skin level out of oil generation.
Besides, it is filled with vitamin E, linoleic acid, and antioxidants that regenerate skin cells.
But if you don’t have any jojoba on hand, you can make this recipe absolutely without it, and it’s still going to be perfect for your skin.

That is where the serum comes in.
It’s a light moisturizer that hydrates with just a minimal amount of oil your skin feels smooth and moisturized but not greasy.

These vitamins act as antioxidants and help protect the skin from damage caused by external stressors.
Aloe vera also helps to moisturize the skin, strengthening the weakened skin barrier.
Glycerin acts as a natural humectant, which means that, like honey, it extracts moisture from the air.
Applied topically, vitamin E oil can block free radicals and replenish lipids, helping to slow down the aging process of the skin.
The ingredient may also help to reduce wrinkles and fine lines and keep the skin looking young.
