5. Facial Toner
To prepare this anti-aging serum, you need 1/2 cup brewed and cooled green tea, 1/4 cup witch hazel and 10 drops of essential oils combined. Use the green tea because it helps in flushing out toxins and boosts skin rejuvenation, while it also reduces dark under eye circles and puffy eyes. It can also delay skin aging such as sun damage, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles. The witch hazel can kill the bacteria in our skin pores and reduces inflammation.
6. Anti-Aging Eye Cream
The under eye area is one those places where the aging signs are most visible, so that’s why it’s important to take good care of it to slow down the process. For that cause, you can use few ingredients to help you – coconut oil will nourish the skin and has anti-fungal properties, while other oils such as the rosehip seed oil, can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and skin discoloration. To prepare such cream, you need 1/2 oz. cocoa butter, 1 oz. coconut oil, 1/2 oz. rosehip seed oil, 1/2 oz. beeswax and 10 drops frankincense essential oil.
7. Blackberry Walnut Scrub

8. Anti-Aging Face Serum
This cream has two very important ingredients when it comes to anti-aging treatments – lavender and frankincense essential oil. The lavender oil helps in supplying our skin cells with oxygen and nutrition by boosting the blood circulation and it also fights off the bad effects of the pollutants.

For this cream, you need 2 tbsp. red raspberry seed oil, 5 drops lavender essential oil and 5 drops frankincense essential oil.

Also, it helps in producing collagen that in return prevents aging; the avocado is also rich in vitamins A and B that can rejuvenate the skin. For this mask you just need three ingredients: 1/4 of an avocado, 2 tbsp of juiced pomegranite seeds (approximately 1/2 pomegranate) and 2 tbsp of coconut oil.
