We need the following for our natural Home made anti aging serum

  • Gycerin – We can get it in any medical store and is often used to treat mouth ulcers. Gycerin is a natural humectant. A humectant helps in retaining moisture inside our skin for a longer period of time. The skin therefore stays healthy and nourished. The skin also stays hydrated because of the same.

  • Vitamin E capsule- 2 pcs. We can get these capsules as Evlon 400 in any medical store. They are easily available and often used in skin care remedies. Vitamin E is a natural anti-aging product which helps in the production of collagen and elastin in our skin. External usage of vitamin E makes the skin look prettier, soft and shiny.

  • Any aroma oil- to add fragrance to the whole mixture (optional) 

The Process

The aloevera gel acts as a base in this mixture. Vitamin E is an oil soluble vitamin while glycerine and rose water are water soluble. We need a base to bind these water soluble and oils soluble ingredients together and hence we are using the aloevera gel. It acts as a perfect binder.

Use 2 spoons of aloevera gel and add vitamin E capsule with it first. The aloevera gel will slightly become milky and become less transparent. It’s very important that the vitamin E mixes with the gel properly.

We then add one spoon of glycerin. We should not add extra glycerin because excess of it may cause pimples. 

Once It becomes into a thick gel, we then add 3 spoon of rose water to make the gel more fluid. We mix rose water in the end and make sure the consistency of the serum is neither too thick nor too thin. Add more rose water if required. 

Add a few drops of your aroma oil approximately 6 drops if you want to add any kind of fragrance.

Mix all of these together in a big bowl and store it together in a bigger bottle. This serum can be stored for a long period of time as all of them have natural preservation properties. You can now store the gel and use it every night before u sleep.
