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!

    Very interesting! Seems like it maybe oily though although we lose oils daily by washing in bad soaps and body washes. Including Sun damaged skin. I like Jojoba oil but it seems to leave my skin oily. Although it does help dry skin. I use after bathing or showering, and using my soap, rinsing and while shower is still on, I put Jojoba oil on rub in good wait a few minutes then rinse off with shower water. Using my hand to get. Excess off. It does leave enough on skin, the humility does effect that sticky effect. Let it soak in pat dry your skin.

    Is there rose hip seed oil in the recipe? It looked like it on the video, but it's not listed on the written portion. Thank you, can't wait to try this!
