DIY Hyaluronic Acid Serum Recipe

This DIY hyaluronic acid serum hydrates and nourishes skin. We make less hyaluronic acid as we grow older, which is why topical application makes such an impact.

Equipment

  • small jar with lid
  • measuring cup
  • measuring spoon

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place powder in a small clean jar.
  • Pour in distilled water and glycerin or leucidal if using.
  • Place a lid on the jar and shake well. It will look very chunky at this point, but don’t worry. As the hyaluronic acid absorbs the water the consistency will become more smooth.
  • Place in the fridge for several hours (or overnight) to allow it to thicken before use.

Notes

Shelf life: Without a preservative I store my serum in the fridge and use within two weeks. With a preservative it can be stored at room temperature for up to three months.
