DIY Rose and Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum

Chelsea
An extremely hydrating and plumping serum that you can mix up at home in minutes!
Prep Time 3 mins
Total Time 4 hrs

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup Rose hydrosol this is my favorite (or other hydrosol, or plain distilled water)
  • 1 teaspoon High molecular weight hyaluronic acid powder this is the one I chose
  • 1/2 teaspoon glycerine non-gmo and food grade
  • Optional: 2 drops rose essential oil or other skin friendly essential oil or blend See note below.
  • Optional: 1/2 teapoon Leucidal liquid a radish-derived preservative
  • sterilized air-tight glass container for storage recycled or purchased (I use these)
  • hyaluronic acid

Instructions
 

  • Mix this up at least 4 hours before you want to use it. It needs time to absorb fully first.
  • First, put your hyaluronic powder in your sterilized glass jar.
  • Next, add the hydrosol (or distilled water--do not use filtered tap water--it may introduce harmful microbes to your serum). Put the lid on and give it a good shake.
  • Then, remove the lid, and add the glycerine and  Luecidal Liquid preservative if using). If you aren't using the preservative, it is a good idea to just make a half batch to make sure you use it all up within a few weeks. Also be sure to refrigerate your serum if not using a preservative. If you do use the preservative, you can store your serum for a few months at room temperature (even longer in the fridge).
  • Put the lid on the jar and shake, shake, shake. The mixture will be lumpy with pockets of powder. Do not fear! It will fully absorb.
  • Finally, refrigerate your serum while you wait for it to fully hydrate-about 4 hours.
