DIY Face Oil
Disclaimer: I am not an aesthetician, dermatologist, chemist, or expert of any kind. Please be aware that everyone’s skin is different and what works for me may not work for you.
I love love love a good face oil. From tackling my hormonal acne to being an incredible makeup primer, face oil is a must-have in my skincare routine.
I’ve also found that I love love love a good DIY skincare product (check out my DIY face cleanser here). Like most skincare, a good quality commercial face oil can come with a hefty price tag, so I went in search of effective, affordable, and non-comedogenic oils and put together an incredibly simple and affordable face oil.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Jojoba oil (Benefits: Moisturizing, helps control sebum production, antibacterial)
Grapeseed oil (Benefits: Prevents clogged pores, protects against free radicals, balances skin, anti-inflammatory)
Tea tree oil (Benefits: Treats acne and other skin irritations, fights bacteria, anti-inflammatory)
2 oz bottle (I bought these on Amazon - the amber glass helps to properly preserve the oils)
Mix 2 tbs of jojoba oil, 2 tbs of grapeseed oil, and 10 drops of tea tree oil in a measuring bowl (or any bowl with a lip so it’s easy to pour into your bottle).
Pour into your bottle and you’re ready to go! (So easy)
A couple of notes for usage:
I use this 2x/day after cleansing, toning, and spot treating
This mixture does not contain an emulsifying agent (an ingredient that keeps all of the other ingredients homogeneously mixed together) so the ingredients will separate. Give it a good shake before using
Be delicate around the eye area to avoid getting it into your eyes :)
Cheers to happy skin!
