Homemade Hyaluronic Acid Serum Recipe
How to make a hyaluronic acid serum that hydrates, plumps, and protects your skin.
Yield: 2 ounces
Place the hyaluronic acid powder in a small bowl. Add the water and stir vigorously to dissolve. Cold water should help the powder dissolve more easily, but if you’re still seeing chunks, you can put the mixture in a small blender or food processor to get it to mix completely.
Transfer the mixture to an amber bottle. Add the glycerin, carrot seed oil, and neroli oil. Shake well.
Let the serum sit for at least 4 hours to allow the hyaluronic acid powder to dissolve completely before using.
To use, apply a bit of serum to freshly washed skin, and let it soak in. Follow up with any additional serums or creams. Apply 1–2 times a day to keep skin looking fresh and dewy.
Store remaining serum in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
To keep your serum fresh, feel free to halve the recipe to make smaller portions. And while the supplies can be a little pricey up front, they're used in such small quantities that they should last for a long time.
