Have you considered making your own face products? Even more, have you considered making your own homemade anti-aging face serum? Why do this? I believe that using all-natural ingredients from the earth without all the added chemicals, fragrances, and anything else made in a lab would be much better. I recently came across an ingredient that is the inspiration for this anti-aging face serum. It’s called DMSO. Let’s take a look at how amazing it is and I’ll show you why I think this will prove to be a great product for my face!
What is DMSO?
DMSO also known as dimethyl sulfide is an industrial Sullivant and organic sulfur compound. Sulfur is in every human, plant, and animal. It’s very gentle and they even use it to store things like stem cells, organs for transplant, and human embryos. DMSO contains a bioavailable, high-concentration, organic sulfur that your body can easily use. DMSO can easily penetrate the blood-brain barrier and the skin really easily.
It is an extraordinary product with loads of benefits.
- Amazing and potent pain reliever.
- Strong anti-inflammatory and antiviral.
- Very strong free radical scavenger
- Stimulates the immune system
- Heavy metal detox. The sulfur compound binds to the heavy metals and you will eliminate them.
- Improves eyesight
- Improves blood supply
- It’s systemic and affects your entire body no matter where you use it.
- protects against nuclear radiation by repairing DNA
- Protects against injury due to freezing.
- Great for learning, and relaxation.
DMSO is great to help treat these things:
- Closed brain injury
- Muscle sprains and strains
- Spinal injury
- Softens scar tissue
- Cold sores
- Can improve eyesight
- Blocked sinus
- Varicose veins
- Also, look into the treatment of pets
How to properly use DMSO
- Always make sure your skin is very clean with no chemicals. DMSO will carry whatever is on your skin to your bloodstream so you want to make sure its good.
- If you order your DMSO and it is solid, no worries just set the bottle in a bowl with some warm water and it will turn back to liquid.
- indefinite shelf life
- If you would like to use DMSO for things like arthritis and joint pain you can mix 50/50 DMSO and distilled water.
- Must store in glass. It will create a little heat when you mix it or apply it to your skin and that is normal.
- The best time to apply is after your shower to ensure there is no residue of any chemicals on your body.
- You can apply to temples, the bottom of the feet, or sore joint areas.
- It can cause skin irritation and itchy skin, but it will pass.
- It can increase the effects of things like blood thinners, heart medications, and more so do your own research and talk to your doctor.
There are some other great ingredients in this anti-aging serum. Let’s take a look at them.
Here’s the one I have
Colloidal silver is a solution containing tiny particles of silver and water. It has been used for thousands of years to prevent infections. Colloidal silver has amazing benefits for the skin. Here are some things it can do for your skin.
- It can stimulate healing for the skin tissue.
- Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, anti-microbial
- Used for wounds, or burns.
- Can be used for psoriasis and eczema.
Make sure when you are buying colloidal silver you don’t buy Ionic silver or silver proteins.
Here is the one I have
You may have seen hyaluronic acid in skin products. Hyaluronic acid is present in almost all of the body’s tissue. Its purpose is to hydrate the skin. Here is why I wanted to add it to this homemade anti-aging face serum.
- It can plump the appearance of the skin
- Strengthens the skin’s moisture barrier helping to keep the skin hydrated.
- It has the potential to reduce fine lines.
- It can speed up wound healing.
- It can smooth the texture of the skin.
- Anti-aging. It can help to decrease the depth of wrinkles and enhance firmness.
Here is the one I have
Castor oil is also great for the skin! Here are a few things it’s great for!
- Contains antioxidants that fight free radicals. This helps it to fight wrinkles.
- The antibacterial quality of castor oil helps it to fight acne.
- Its anti-inflammatory properties help to fight puffiness.
- Very moisturizing.
- Promotes overall healthy skin.
Make sure when adding this in you get pure, unrefined castor oil.
Here is the one I have.
Frankincense is great for healing the skin and body. Here are some benefits for the skin.
- Reduces wrinkles and combats signs of aging.
- Strengthens skin and improves tone and elasticity.
- Tones and lifts skin.
- Great for stretch marks and scars.
When to use this anti-aging face serum.
Use this face serum right before bed. That way you can clean and rinse your face well then add a small amount over your face. Again, it is important to use this face serum with clean hands and a clean face because of the DMSO. Make sure to read the section above about DMSO and all of it’s benefits!

I think I would check into adding olive oil. Olives are one of the few things you can leave exposed to the air and it will stay the same for a log time. Unlike other fruits and vegetables.
I love that idea. Make sure to get pure, good-quality olive oil.
I love this recipe and will be trying it out. Your links to the ingredients you use aren’t working…..
Great! I tested the links and they seem to be working fine.

I was wondering if you applied it and had success? Any before and after photos? I was reading about combining castor oil and DMSO, one researcher suggested using caution with this combination due to the ricin in the castor oil.
I should have taken before and after, maybe I can still do that! I do feel it has helped. I haven’t heard that about caster oil. Do you know if that’s also with the organic??
Followed directions as directed and applied to clean skin but I noticed after applying to face and neck that when it has dried for some time it starts flaking off. I tried leaving it on just by itself and applying a moisturizer after but same results. Excessive flaking. What am I doing wrong?
Hi, I also experience some flaking and put a little caster oil or shea butter over top after I apply and they really helps. When I made this again, I added 1 tsp of the powder instead of 2 and that helped also.
help I made the anti ageing serum and it is all clumped up after 1 week like a solid gel and I can not scoop any out to use- please advise
Hi! so sorry to hear that. I’m not sure if different climates may cause this… Try adding more castor oil. That should work.
Hi. Thanks for sharing the recipe! I have been using for two days and so far so good – not amazing changes just yet however I do have very sensitive sk8n and I hav3 had abs9lutely no reaction which is great.
I followed your recipe very carefully and I cannot get it to set firmly, it stays as a liquid which I have to mix beforeapplying. I did add more castor oil but it made no difference. Any suggestions?
Hi! I also have sensitive skin and it does work great with that. Adding more castor oil would not help it to set. It’s the powder that causes this to set. Maybe try adding a bit more of the powder. Even if it doesn’t; harden the DMSO will still carry the pure ingredients into the skin!
I want to make this, but cannot find the European to American measurements. Any suggestions?
