Hi guys, I’m back with another skincare tutorial for you, this time it’s an exact guide on how to get rid of wrinkles – so if you’re in your 20s or 30s you can follow this tutorial to prevent wrinkles. If you’re in your 40s or 50s, then this tutorial is how to get rid of wrinkles!
You’ve probably been told that the only way to get rid of wrinkles is with Botox and surgery and that there’s nothing else you can do for it :'(
Well my friend, you’re wrong.
This is the most tried and true method to get rid of wrinkles that I know of! Believe me, I used it myself when I was in my 20s to prevent wrinkles. Now that I’m in my 30s , I have less wrinkles than when I was younger.
How do I know this works? Well, let’s just say one of my friends in her 40s has been using this method for a few years now and she has less wrinkles than when she was in her 20s. Like seriously! No Botox or surgery needed! How cool is that?!
Okay so enough chit-chatting, let’s get started!
For today’s tutorial on how to get rid of wrinkles with skincare I’m making a moisturizer and a serum .
Here’s what we’ll need:
– Your favorite cleanser (I’m using Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil)
– A few sheets of cotton pads ( For the moisturizer, 1 sheet will do. If you plan on making a serum as well, which I recommend, then you’ll need 2 sheets of cotton pads).
– Some hand cream (I’m using the The Body Shop Shea Butter Hand Cream)
– A big bowl or container – The size depends on how much skincare you plan to make, so I’m just gonna tell you what sizes I use for my recipes.
For a moisturizer you will need a bowl or container with a capacity of 100ml.
For a serum you will need a smaller container, I use 30ml because serums are light and they don’t take up much space.
– Pipette – If you have one that’s great, if not then use your clean hands.
– Spoon – I use a spoon to mix everything together.
– Some skincare ingredients of your choice, these are the ones I’m using:
For moisturizer: Niacinamide and adenosine
For serum: Rosehip oil , niacinamide and green tea extract
*You can find these ingredients at a Korean cosmetic store, but Amazon has them too.
Niacinamide (aka nicotinamide or vitamin B3) is an ingredient that helps with anti-aging and it gives your skin a nice glow .
Adenosine is an ingredient that helps with anti-aging and it makes your skin look smoother.
Rosehip oil is a great ingredient for anti-aging, it helps with wrinkles and scars. This recipe is a serum so the rosehip oil acts as an emulsifier, which means it will help keep the moisture in your skin instead of letting it evaporate into the air.
Green tea extract is an anti-bacterial ingredient that helps reduce acne. It also has anti-aging properties and it brightens the skin tone .
*I sometimes substitute these ingredients with others depending on what I have in my cupboard, but these are the most common ones used for this recipe. If you don’t like rosehip oil then feel free to substitute it with another anti-aging ingredient of your choice.
Ok so that’s all the ingredients you need! Now let’s get started!
Step 1: Put some of your cleanser into the bowl.
If you’re making a moisturizer , put 2 teaspoons (10ml).
If you’re making a serum, put 1 teaspoon (5ml).
Step 2: Add your favorite hand cream and start mixing. I’m using the The Body Shop Shea Butter Hand Cream for moisturizer and it’s quite thick so you have to mix for a while before it gets absorbed by the skin. If you’re using a hand cream with lighter texture then mixing won’t take that long.
Step 3: Add your skincare ingredients of choice . I’m using Niacinamide and adenosine 😀
Step 4: Mix everything together! It should look like this after mixing. The consistency should be neither too watery nor too oily so it’s pretty easy to mix. If you’re making a serum then skip to step 5.
Step 5: Transfer your moisturizer into the container . Gently pour it out and you’re done!
Your moisturizer should not be as watery as hand cream so it will absorb more quickly than if you use hand cream alone, but it’s still not too thick so you can use it in the morning or whenever you need an extra bit of moisture.
