This DIY recipe is suitable for all skin types which might sound a bit weird to those with oily skin but oil actually counteracts oil. Jojoba oil is the closest natural ingredient to your skin own sebum so by covering the skin in a light layer actually tricks your sebaceous glands into thinking they’ve already produced enough oil.
You will need:
25ml of jojoba oil
25ml sweet almond oil
5 drops gernaium essential oil
10 drops jasmine essential oil
3 drops sweet orange essential oil
Take a small jar with a lid and pour your jojoba and sweet almond oil in.
Add your essential oils to the mix.
Put the lid back on and shake it up so everything is well combined and decant into a pretty jar/bottle.
Take any eye make up you might have off (e.g. use olive oil and cotton pads) then pour a small amount onto your hands. Really warm it up by rubbing it in your palms then ‘cup’ your hands all over your skin. Gently massage the oil in for a good 3–4 minutes focusing on the t-zone. Rinse a flannel under some warm water and wring it out then place over your face. Let the flannel steam your skin for a few seconds then repeat. Remove the rest of the oil with the warm flannel then pat your face dry.
You’ll probably find you don’t need to moisturise after this treatment unless you have super dry skin.
