The title of this post is intentionally provocative. We all know there is no fountain of youth, but I think perhaps DIY skincare is the closest I will ever come to it.
Everything in my routine works really well together and each product performs a slightly different function. I love my Rose Sunscreen, I love my ‘Easy Rinse’ Oil Cleanser, and the long list of serums that have graced these pages are equally loved. However, as I was making a fresh batch of KNN serum today (Kinetin, Niacinamide, N-acetyl-D glucosamine) it occured to me just how much of a standout this serum is in a strong field of contenders. It will fix any issue you have.
Got acne? No problem.
Want to erase wrinkles? You got it.
Want botox-like firming? Sure.
Face lift without the price tag? Yup.
I took a photo of myself to give a sense of what it does for the skin. This photograph was taken today, in natural light, with no makeup on at all. I am 36, and have lived in Australia all my life. I only started wearing sunscreen daily in my early 30s (gah!) so I’ve had a lot of issues to correct.
My skin is my no means perfect, but I am really happy with the results of my DIY skincare regime. My skin has improved hugely despite all the sun damage it has incurred over the years.
If you want to know more about the issues I’ve been trying to deal with, see the posts here, here, and here. You can see that I’ve used lots of different DIY treatments and strategies which are better than anything you can buy over a counter, but if you’re looking for a serum that does it all, try the KNN serum. I have a tutorial you can follow here. The best ingredients are available from Skin Essential Actives.
