Facial OIl Recipe for Dry Mature Skin

by Rita Spicer
(St. Pete Fl)

I'd like to mix carrier oils for mature skin. I have dry skin around my mouth and eyes, plus some old scarring.

I was thinking of Sea Buckthorn oil, Kukui, Almond and Jojoba oils, but I don't know how many drops for each. What would I put under my eyes?

Some people say they mix oil with moisturizing cream, but what cream? All the creams have their own formulas. I do get peels for my scarring but it's a slow process!

I think oils are great if I could just get the right formula.

Acne Facial Oil for Mature Skin NEW
by: Kyley

Hi there,

You'll want to change up the carrier oils to prevent breakouts. Try this instead:

4 tablespoons (45ml) Jojoba Oil
2 tablespoons (30ml) Kukui Nut Oil
1 tablespoon (15ml) Grapeseed Oil
2 teaspoons (10ml) Sea Buckthorn oil

2 drops Frankincense
2 drops Patchouli OR Palmarosa
2 drops Sandalwood

That should create a good balance between the oiliness and the antiaging properties. Good luck!

Hi Rita,

Those carrier oils will definitely help your skin! Here's a suggested blend:

4 tablespoons (45ml) Kukui Nut Oil
2 tablespoons (30ml) Jojoba Oil
1 tablespoon (15ml) Sweet Almond Oil
2 teaspoons (10ml) Sea Buckthorn oil

As an option, you might also want to add some essential oils:

2 drops Frankincense
2 drops Palmarosa or Rose
2 drops Sandalwood

It's safe yo use around the eyes (just don't get it IN them!) and will be very good for wrinkles, dryness and scarring.

Thanks for posting, Rita, and I hope this recipe helps. Good luck!
