This DIY Facial Serum Is Super Hydrating—and Made From Just 4 Ingredients!

Last Update: May 17, 2023

Avocados have been widely deemed as one of the best food sources of “healthy fat” you can eat, and even hailed as “the best food in the entire world.”

As it turns out this super-fruit is just as good for your skin as it is for your diet. That’s why avocado oil takes center stage in this easy DIY facial serum recipe. Avocado oil has all the same nutrients of the fruit itself, including vitamin E, an antioxidant responsible for keeping skin healthy, and phytosterols that help nurture the complexion from the inside out.

Just a few drops of the serum—which is made from just four natural ingredients—massaged into the face and neck daily will keep it hydrated and nourished.

DIY Avocado Oil Hydrating Serum

What You Need

2 parts avocado oil
1 part jojoba oil
4 drops geranium essential oil
4 drops lavender essential oil


Stir all ingredients together in a small bowl. Pour the serum through a small funnel into a small dropper bottle, and store in a cool, dry place.

To apply, gently massage 2 to 3 drops all over your face and neck after cleansing. Or, try mixing two drops into your favorite moisturizer. Either way, your skin will thank you!
