Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance ? from our own body, that is, our body creates this substance naturally, as it does with many others such as collagen.
The natural function of hyaluronic acid is to retain water and moisture in our skin, in this way we will always avoid suffering a lack of hydration in our dermis, but nevertheless we can see that in many people this is the order of the day and they have a The driest and most malnourished face, the reason is that over the years the production of hyaluronic acid decreases and that is why when we get older our first wrinkles begin to appear, etc.
The same happens with other substances such as collagen , therefore the indispensable hyaluronic acid must be present in our life, if it is not naturally (produced by our body) we must look for it in products that provide it and thus never suffer a deficit of this substance.

Today more and more of us decide to move to a much more sustainable, respectful and healthy world, therefore the world of cosmetics has always been a double-edged sword, since we all like to be well, but At what price? By this I do not mean money but rather pollution, destruction, damage to the planet and animals, etc.
It is clear that cosmetics can be completely sustainable and healthy , little by little it is being shown more and more and more and more people are fighting for it. In this case, and as the basis of everything, is the fact of making our own cosmetics, being self-sufficient and not polluting excessively, using sustainable, natural and respectful substances with everyone.
Therefore, homemade cosmetics is still a wonderful option to take care of our skin and the planet in general and that is why the answer to the previous question is that yes, it is a great idea to make a hyaluronic acid serum at home, like this that let’s talk about the steps to get it ! ?
Steps to make a homemade hyaluronic acid serum
Now that we know that it can be done and that it is a magnificent idea, making a hyaluronic acid serum at home, we are going to go directly to the steps that we must follow to achieve a product that is the most effective and efficient.
Can I tell you about some recipes? so that you can choose the one that you like the most or that you go mixing them and thus you try a little different serums but with the same objective, in addition the recipes will be very simple, with very simple and quick steps to do so that we do not waste a lot of time on it or we find it tedious.
The substances that we will use will be all at home or they will be very easy to find as well as cheap, so everything will be advantages and pros.
Hyaluronic acid and aloe vera serum (homemade)
The first recipe that I am going to talk about will be about a fairly normal serum , which will provide us with many properties but which will have in its INCI a lower amount of ingredients than the subsequent recipe, in addition, the presence of aloe vera will also be found in the formulation , a substance that you know is highly moisturizing and wonderful for the skin.
With that said, we’re going to start with the ingredients we need and the steps we need to take, so take note of everything!
- 3.5 tablespoons cold rose water
- ½ tablespoon hyaluronic acid powder
- ½ tablespoon aloe vera gel or jojoba oil
- 2 drops of carrot seed oil
- 2 drops of neroli essential oil
Steps to prepare it
- The first thing we are going to do is choose the final bottle, it must be dark in color and made of crystal or glass, in this way we avoid deterioration. When we have it, we take a funnel and first add the rose water.
- Once we have the rose water inside, we are going to pour the hyaluronic acid powder little by little, then close the cap and shake well so that it mixes and there are no lumps.
- Finally, we are adding all the remaining ingredients, aloe vera or, failing that, jojoba oil, carrot seed oil and neroli essential oil. We close the jar again and shake again to finish mixing everything.
Once we have it done, should we let the serum rest? about 5 hours before use, since during this time the lotion will be resting and the hyaluronic acid will have been completely mixed. In this way the results will be much better.
If you do not use it all in one day, the ideal is to keep it in the fridge and use it in the next 2 weeks, after this time it is best to throw away what we have left, since it has probably been spoiled over time.
After seeing the previous serum, you have been able to verify that the ingredients are few and easy to find in any herbalist , in the case of this new recipe there are more ingredients that we need but just as easy to find, so it will not be difficult to carry it finished.Biphasic Hyaluronic Acid Serum
As you know, the two-phase format will allow us to remove dirt and even makeup much faster, although a serum does not have that function, it can help to a great extent to complete the cleaning routine.
- 20 ml. hyaluronic acid gel
- 4 ml. jojoba oil
- 4 ml. cranberry oil
- 1 ml. gotu kola extract
- 1 drop of vitamin E
- 6 drops of CO2 extract of pomegranate
- 2 or 3 drops of orange blossom essential oil (although it can be any other that you like more)
- 6 drops of preservative (natural)
Steps to prepare it
- To prepare it, it is very important that we carry adequate hygiene and that all the utensils that we are going to use are completely clean, for this we are going to sterilize beforehand everything necessary to make our serum.
- When we have everything clean, we are going to pour the ingredients mentioned above in order and little by little we will stir everything. It is important that the bottle where we pour the substances is dark in color and made of a glassy or crystal material, in this way, as you already know, we prevent our serum from spoiling.
- As it is a biphasic serum, it is important that we always keep in mind that we have to shake the product before using it, so that everything mixes and offers a much more satisfactory care.
Can we use these serums to treat the eyes?
Although the serums that we are going to make and the recipes we have talked about are all suitable for all skin types, they will treat the dermis with total respect and delicacy and will provide infinite properties for everyone, the reality is that the contour of the eyes is an area of our face that must go apart.
The eye area? It is the most delicate of all, it has a very thin layer of skin and a multitude of very small veins, so we must treat this area with special care, for this it is recommended not to use general facial products in the eye area , but some more specific.
For this reason, I advise you not to put the serum that you make at home in the area of your eyes and to do this, make other recipes aimed at taking care of these areas, so the results and the treatment in general will be much more fascinating.
Here you will find wonderful recipes to make your own serums for tabs : Sérums home tab.
Are they uniex serums?
If you are men and your big question is whether or not you can use these serums (or others) on your skin, the answer is a resounding yes ??? . If you are women and you want to recommend these serums to your partners, friends, parents, etc., I greatly encourage you, since they are products that men and women can use and everyone can benefit from all their properties.
Men’s skin tends to be a little thicker due to the amount of testosterone, in the same way it is also usually a little fatter and usually has hairs (beard), in addition its source of natural collagen is less affected than that of the young women . However, none of these differences make them unsuitable for using a serum on your skin (or any other product), so don’t think twice and start making your own recipes!
I encourage all of you to make these super recipes and fully enjoy the care offered by a homemade hyaluronic acid serum, you will love it! ?In short, the serum is a product that everyone should use , since it offers infinite improvements to the face, no matter age or gender, nor does skin type matter (as long as we know what we need and look for ingredients suitable for us), so no one should miss out on this experience!
