A few drops of this facial serum and you’re good to go. Want a bit more hydration, like a dewy complexion? Wear a moisturizer on top of the serum. Struggling with oily, congested skin? This serum may be enough to help you achieve the look of balance and harmony. The beauty lies in the choice. This system is flexible enough to work for any skin type and any lifestyle.

Developing Your Skin Care Ritual

Custom SKin Care by Source Vital

We know consistency is key in any wellness program. It is essential for prevention and maintenance. With diet and exercise it keeps you fit and helps the body fight aging and disease. In religion and spiritual practice these habits become ritualized.

Rituals help us to focus our attention and purpose. Beyond mere habit, it is a devotion. Instead of making hygiene feel like an obligation we want the experience of self-care to feel special and luxurious. The textures, scents and good-for-you ingredients offer benefits not only for the skin but also the mind and soul. Yes, your personal hygiene requires some discipline, but it also feels good to pamper yourself.

Our Customized Facial Cocktails feel like a little luxury at the start or end of your day – without all the fuss of a lengthy, complicated routine. Save that for a rainy weekend or a trip to your favorite facialist.

Benefits of Customized Facial Cocktails

Face oil serums, like our Customized Facial Cocktails, provide a wealth of healthy benefits – in one concentrated dose. Despite the common misconception that those with oily skin should avoid face oils, the right kind of oil can work to naturally balance the amount of oil the skin produces. It’s all about picking oils that are best suited for your skin type and unique issues.

Here are some of the main benefits of face oils:

  • The ingredients and light-weight textures deeply nourish the face, neck and décolleté for a healthy, revitalized-look
  • With regular use the skin will glow with youthful radiance
  • Promotes the appearance of balance, radiance and vitality to all skin types
  • Calms a host of skin irritations
  • Protects skin from environmental damage
  • Fights the look of premature aging

The right combination will make the skin feel hydrated and supple with a smoother, firmer, more youthful appearance.

One of the secrets of our Customized Facial Cocktail is the marine hydration system. It allows your skin to drink in the nutrients of the botanical oils and keeps the formula from feeling too greasy and sticky.

Another advantage, the cocktail is the perfect foundation to prep the skin for any other products you are using. It allows the product to be fully absorbed for maximum benefit.

Choosing Your Custom Formula

Customized Facial Cocktail 3-Step Process

We have developed an easy 3-step process to create your Custom Facial Cocktail. However, some still want a little help. Below is a primer of the ingredients you can choose to add to your cocktail. and we’ve provided some of our favorite combinations.

CAUTION: Essential oils are active on the skin. If you are not used to using essential oils in your skin care, start with milder blends, such as Soothing Infusion and work up to more active formulas, such as Toning Infusion. If you are using Retinol or other aggressive skin treatments avoid using Toning Infusion.

Face Oil Infusions
Here is a cheat sheet to get to know the Face Oil Infusions and Botanical Shots that can be added to your Customized Facial Cocktail

How to Use the Customized Facial Cocktail

How to Make a Custom Facial Serum

The whole idea is to keep it simple, but this serum can be implemented into any regimen, even the protocols of the most high-maintenance beauty mavens.

Simple Skin Care Routine
Step 1 – Cleanse
Wash your face with whatever formula is best for your skin type.

Step 2 – Customized Facial Cocktail
Remember to thoroughly shake the cocktail to incorporate all the ingredients. Add 4-10 drops in your palm and massage into the skin, avoiding your eyes.

*Normal to oily skin types may be done! If you feel like you need a bit more hydration move on to step 3.

Step 3 – Hydrate or Sunscreen
Add a layer of moisturizer if you have normal-to-dry skin or feel like you need a bit more hydration. Don’t forget your daily dose of sunscreen!


Advanced Skin Care Routine
Step 1 – Cleanse
Wash your face with whatever formula is best for your skin type.

1-3 times a week, depending on your skin type, add gentle exfoliation into your program. Then use your favorite mask, depending on your complexion needs.

Step 2 – Customized Facial Cocktail
Add 4-10 drops in your palm and massage into the skin, avoiding your eyes.

Step 3 – Correctives
If you use corrective products to battle skin issues like dark spots, wrinkles or breakouts, use these on top of your facial cocktail.

Step 5 – Eye care
Tap on an eye cream around the orbital one of the eye. For dark circles and puffy eyes, focus on the inner corners and under eye area. For crow’s feet pat eye cream on the outter corners.

Step 6 – Hydrate
Add a layer of moisturizer if you have normal-to-dry skin or feel like you need a bit more hydration. Again, for the daytime, apply sunscreen to protect the skin from UV damage.

Expert Tips

Another great way to customize your program is to make an AM and PM facial cocktail formula. Your morning blend should be light enough to be quickly absorbed. The goal of this cocktail focuses on issues like protecting the skin from environmental damage and helping to control the appearance of conditions like oil shine or redness.

Your evening cocktail can be a bit richer in consistency and should be aimed at deeper hydration and protecting the skin from developing the signs of aging. For those with active breakouts, your evening formula should focus on calming irritation and purifying the skin.
