If you are finding that your face needs a little extra nourishment consider incorporating a natural and easy homemade remedy. This can be done in addition to your normal skin care regimen or can be swapped out for your moisturizer.
This type of facial oil can be balancing and nourishing for all skin types. Just because the base is oil, doesn’t mean it will clog your pores. Keep your skin clean and properly exfoliated, and by following the recipe below, you will find your skin glowing even in dry winter climates.
Carrot seed essential oil is yellowish-orange in color, and has a unique spicy-sweet fragrance. It is very high in beta-carotene, and therefore extremely nourishing for the skin. With its ability to stimulate skin elasticity, carrot seed essential oil has been used in a number of skin care products.
Combine 2 tablespoons jojoba oil and 6 drops carrot seed essential oil in a small dark glass bottle. Shake well to blend. Use about 1 teaspoon at a time for a 5-minute daily facial massage. (You should not use this massage oil if you have very oily skin.) This homemade massage oil is supposed to improve blood circulation and moisture retention, resulting in healthier and smoother skin. Keep it in a dry, dark cabinet for its maximum shelf life.
