I'm hoping for some advice from experienced DIY-ers.

I want to make a gel to put all over my body for firming/sculpting/lifting. I recently got the seakelp bioferment from SkinActives, so I'm going to make this the base. I used it on my face and really liked the results for firming.

So, i want to add all the possible actives I can find for body firming/sculpting and make the ultimate body gel! Very Happy

Once I've made that, I might try making my own anti-aging body cream for nourishing/moisturising. I'm just getting into the DIY thing, it's so fun.

I thought adding DMAE would be good.

Does anyone have any suggestions for other things to add?

Thank you!

Hmmm, I'm not going to be any help here chickenlittle, but I'll be watching this thread with interest great question!

44 – combo/oily skin with a tendency towards clogged pores. Thanks to EDS, tweaked my skincare routine and normalized skin… no more breakouts. PSF, silk powder, Janson Beckett, Cellbone, NIA24 are staples.

I used the same sea bio ferment from skinactives but I wanted to make a moisturizer to smooth skin and help with congested pores, I added Idebenone, retinyl acetate with turned out to be a clumpy, goopey mess. It was ugly! I tried it once and woke up with very shiny skin and clogged pores! Threw it out immediatley! I would rather pay more money than try to save a couple of bucks trying to fiqure out how to make my own potion! Waste of time and money for me!

Using the SKBio 'neat' is tricky business at best. Try using it at about 25% of your total volume and adjust from there.
