DIY facial serum

I've been following Queenie's blog for a while now and I love all her make up tips and tutorials! Her latest DIY project is a facial serum, it's the cheapest serum you can ever find, and the serum's effect is just awesome!
All you need is some white fungus (yes you read it right, white fungus!) and water! (Of course you'll need some bottles and a gas stove :P)

ready some white fungus (choose those which is abit yellowish). white fungus is a very good natural source of anti wrinkles, and improves our skin cell. the white fungus serum also has high hydrating factor.

soak them into warm water for about 30 mins (or until the texture is completely soften and clean)

then, cut off the roots and set aside (we dont need the root for this serum), then cut the rest into pieces

put them to boil for 1 hour. I used about 800ml of water (the water amount depends on how big/small is your white fungus). start with medium heat and when the water is boiled, switch to low heat

you'll know that the serum is ready after about 1 hour, or when you find the white fungus juice becomes gluey. after that, filter out the white fungus juice

and fill them into clean bottles, keep them in fridge for better result. And since this serum has no added chemicals, it's advisable to finish the serum within 1-2 weeks

so simple and cheap right?! wait.... dont throw away the white fungus in the kitchen, cook them with some rock sugars/brown sugar and it'll turn out to be a great dessert for good skin ;)

I add in some rock sugars

and the roots which we cut off earlier on?
it's a great facial scrub! hehe.. each and every part is fully utilised now!

try it ladies~ I'm sure you gonna like it. Since it's a natural food, I think the serum is suitable for all skin types.
Til then, have a pleasant day ahead!
