DIY Acne Fighting & Anti-Aging Moisturizer For Oily Skin

I'm on a path to create DIY chemical-free beauty products that I can use every day. I'm trying to include essential oils in my beauty products as well. Here's my version of Acne Fighting & Anti-Aging Moisturizer for oily skin. This moisturizer is not exclusive for oily skin beauties. So feel free to change the ingredients a bit to suit your skin.

DIY Anti-Aging & Acne Fighting Moisturizer

The ingredients are easily available. I have given links wherever I have mentioned a product so that if you decide to make this you can get them easily. Saying this, there are affiliate links of the products in this post. In case you decide to purchase any of them, I will be compensated for it. So, get clicking (just kidding...or not!!).

Ingredients For DIY Acne Fighting & Anti-Aging Moisturizer:

Essential Oil For DIY Acne Fighting & Anti-Aging Moisturizer

Aloe Vera Gel

This is my base. I have used this instead of any carrier oil as I already have an oily skin. Those with dry skin can use very little of Aloe Vera gel and more of Rosehip oil.

Glass Dropper Bottle For Anti-Aging Moisturizer

Any products containing essential oils should be stored in dark bottles to shy them away from any light source. I have chosen glass as I want to avoid using plastic bottles. It's a 2-in-1 purpose.

Grapeseed Oil For Anti-Aging Moisturizer

You can use this too as it has got lots of anti-aging properties.

Method of Preparation: 

I have mixed everything directly in the bottle itself as I didn't want the hassle of scooping it back in the bottle and cleaning up the mess. I added the essential oils first as I wanted to clear picture of how much I'm adding. I especially didn't want to go overboard with the Tea Tree oil.

Then, I added the Rosehip oil. I just added little, to begin with as I didn't want it to be too oily.  Next, add the Aloe Vera gel.

Close the bottle with your finger and shake it vigorously. Don't use the cap with the glass dropper as it may break during the shake.

And, here's how the final product looks like.

    I mix just aloevera gel and tea tree oil and it works well. But adding rosehip oil and lavender oil is a great option as well. Will try it when I make the next batch. Thanks for the recipe Sudhaa. 🤗🤗

    • Sudhaa Gopinath

      Most welcome, Tosom 🙂 Do let me know how it turns out.

  • SkincareVilla

    Superb recipe Sudhaa, can you pls mention the amount of each ingredient added so that many can benefit

    • Sudhaa Gopinath

      Thanks girl. The measure is based on how much your skin can take the oil. If you have a very oily face, start with more of Aloe Vera gel and and add little of the Rosehip and essential oil. Try using it and see if it needs more oil. This is how you can make it to suit your skin. Hence, I didnt mention the quantity.

      • SkincareVilla

        Ok, got your logic now 😁. Will definitely try this one ❤️

      • SkincareVilla

        Okay, that is also a good idea!

    I made a serum using 3 different oils a few weeks ago for oily skin too, Sudhaa. It turned out well. Regarding thr addition of Aloe vera, I'm skeptical. Reason 1- Aloe vera is colourless and odourless. Patanjali's Aloe vera is green with a fragrance present in it.
    Reason 2 - Aloe vera oxidises within 30 mins of extraction so whatever comes in packages or tubs instantly send across the message to me that it has been laden with a good dose of preservatives.

    If I skip Aloe vera based on these factors, I'm sure the serum will turn out well 😊

      This is so true, Nadal. I have used this gel only as a base and not for the Aloe Vera properties. I don't believe in Aloe Vera gels in tube as you said they become useless after 30 mins. As a base, one can always opt for any other brand of Aloe gel.
