Face serums are lightweight, semi-liquid kind of moisturizer that easily penetrate in your skin and give deep nourishment to the skin.
Using face serum makes a huge difference in your skin’s health because using serum regularly can give your skin a firmer, smoother, wrinkle-free, spot-free look. And it also minimizes your pores gradually.
There are lots of face serum are available in the market online & offline both. But maximum good quality serums price is in high range. Many times we step back from buying the high range serum.

If you have dry skin or in winter if you want you can mix ½ teaspoon glycerin with it.

The last mix it well with the help of the spoon.
That’s it. Your face serum is now ready for use. And you store it in the refrigerator to keep its goodness. This serum you can store in the refrigerator easily for 10 to 12 days. In my suggestion, you do not make a huge quantity. Make it in a small amount and used it within 7 days and store is always in a cool place for best results.
