"I use almond oil as a base, then mix in essential oils -- I have a lot left over from my pregnancy," stylist Meg Venison told us, describing her homemade face serum. Venison, whom we recently met on the street, adds that her DIY mixture typically involves rose hip seed oil. "But sometimes I'll put in something I read about on a blog," she says. "I just try new treatments all the time."
This mother, whose skincare regimen also includes coconut oil and Josie Maran's argan oil sunscreen, is officially doing winter better than the rest of us, in our opinion. Venison's glowy skin may also be the result of her routine use of rose water. (Here, let us enlighten you to all its benefits.) "I rotate cleansers but always use this rose water tonic."
