FACIAL CLEANSER
Regular cleaning is an important part of healthy, youthful skin; however, you can overdo it. Dermatologists agree that over-washing can lead to irritation and lack of moisture. If you have oily skin, you should wash your face in the morning and evening. If your skin is on the drier side, stick to once daily in the evening. Always wash your face after workouts to prevent breakouts.

TIPS

1) Take your makeup off before you cleanse. Most cleansers won’t remove all of your makeup, so start with an oil-based makeup remover.

2) Avoid drastic temperature changes while cleansing. According to dermatologists, the whole “wash with HOT to open your pores and then finish with COLD to close your pores“ thing is a myth and it can actually cause irritation.

3) It is a good idea to cleanse your face in the shower. Mild steam can help soften hardened oil in pores.

4) Alternate your cleanser 3x a week with a gentle face scrub. Do more or less depending on how your skin feels. The Satin Mint Facial Scrub is A-MA-ZING for exfoliation.

Essential Oil Benefits

• Frankincense gives your skin a youthful appearance.

• Lavender is calming, soothing, and cleansing to the skin.

Facial Toner

skincare-toner

The biggest argument in favor of using a skin toner is that it restores your skin’s pH balance. Due to the alkalinity of soap, it causes your skin to be less acidic after cleansing. When the skin needs to work in overdrive to regain its more acidic natural pH level between five and six, it may overproduce oil. Using a toner can help return your skin to its proper pH level.

An alcohol-based toner strips the natural oils, so it is important to use a gentle alcohol-free toner. Make your own toner with a few easy-to-get, highly beneficial ingredients and essential oils that will transform this average toner into a premium product. Use your toner after cleansing and before moisturizing.

Vitamin E is both a nutrient and an antioxidant. Vitamin E oil prevents the formation of wrinkles by blocking free radical damage. It treats wrinkles by boosting collagen production, a connective tissue that keeps skin elastic and supports new skin cell growth and speeds up cell regeneration. If you are more prone to acne, use less or omit this from the recipe, as it is heavy on your skin.

Witch hazel is a plant native to North America and parts of Asia that has been used for centuries for its skin-soothing properties. Its powerful antioxidant and astringent benefits are known to help speed healing, prevent signs of aging, stop cellular damage that can lead to skin cancer, and eradicate bacteria that lives within the pores of the skin.

Essential Oil Benefits

• Frankincense gives your skin a youthful appearance.

• Tea Tree has been used for centuries by the aborigines to cleanse the skin. Note: this oil can be drying to the skin.

• Cypress supports healthy skin. *Use with caution during pregnancy.

• Geranium promotes healthy, clear, glowing skin.

Mud Mask

The minerals in mud are highly effective for absorbing oil from deep within the pores as they dry, trapping the oil in the mud. Mud is often used to detoxify and tone the skin and as an anti-inflammatory agent for skin disorders.

Some other benefits of mud include: reducing signs of aging, improving circulation, shrinking large pores, rinsing away blackheads, and helping to clear acne. Please note that the mud will draw out moisture from your skin as it dries, so it is recommended that you follow up with a moisturizer. ART Light or Intensive Moisturizer are two great options from Young Living’s skin care line.

Essential Oil Benefits

• Spearmint moisturizes and refreshes the skin.

• Tea Tree has been used for centuries by the aborigines to cleanse the skin. Note: this oil can be drying to the skin.

• Lavender has a calm and soothing effect on your skin.

Eye Serum

The goal of an eye serum is to firm your eyes, decrease wrinkles, and reduce bags and dark circles under your eyes. Everybody wants that!

Argan oil is non-greasy and non-irritating, which makes it a great natural moisturizer to hydrate and soften skin and reduce the visibility of wrinkles. With its high vitamin E and fatty acid content, argan oil is ideal to give skin a natural boost.

Almond oil is very popular in Southeast Asia and in the Mediterranean region where the almond tree was first domesticated. It has gained huge popularity in the beauty industry. It creates smooth skin and reduces dark circles under the eyes. According to an article released by “Natural Living Ideas,” some see reduced dark circles in as little as two weeks after applying under the eyes regularly.

Essential Oil Benefits

• Sacred Sandalwood is calming and soothing. It also provides a youthful appearance to your skin.

• Blue Tansy is a rare botanical in the chamomile family. It has become celebrated for its use in luxury skin care products. Contains skin-cleansing and moisturizing benefits.

• Geranium promotes healthy, clear, glowing skin.

• Frankincense is popular for its ability to maintain radiant skin and to smooth the look of healthy skin.

• Lemon contains antioxidants and is refreshing, cleansing, and beneficial to skin.

How to fight age and have beautiful healthy skin without chemicals 


We cannot control what is outside, in the air, attacking us, but we sure can control what is in our homes and what we put on our bodies and what we put inside.

We are trying to eat healthy, we choose organic over non organic. We want to know what we consume. We want the best nutrients for ourselves.

But what about our skin? Doesn’t our skin deserve the same? Our skin shows exactly what we are going through. Did we get enough sleep? Did we drink enough water? Are we stressed or happy?

Healthy and happy skin glows. We all want that. Stores are full with products promising us healthier looking skin. But at what cost? Many of these products contain ingredients we can’t even pronounce. Sure they must be good for us when they sell them, right? Well I don’t think so. I decided I will go the Chemical Free way to feed my skin. The same way I try to eat, my skin should eat. And I’m using my Essential oils for that.

Note I only use Young Living Essential oils. For me it’s the best quality products out there and I want the best. We absorb up to 65% of things we put on our skin so I want to be sure my skin care is safe and healthy. And they smell so good!

So I make all our family skin care products using Young Living oils. Today, I made Face serum and I used these oils

8 drops Sacred Frankincense

6 drops Helichrysum

6 drops Myrrh

6 drops Lime

4 drop Manuka

6 drops Cedarwood

8 drops Geranium

5 drops Tea Tree

I swirl it in the pump bottle so they can synergise together, then pour about 5 ml of Avocado oil and 30 ml of Jojoba or Argan oil.

I use this morning and evening, so does my husband. It is really great when you don’t have to buy different product for each family member! There is love in sharing
