I always get asked what I use on my skin to make it look so healthy and glowing. Oils!
Oils reduce clogged pores by dissolving blackheads, and whiteheads . Some oils even reduce the formation of fine lines and wrinkles . All natural oils contain no harsh chemicals and won’t strip your skin of its natural oils . Essential oils and carrier oils moisturize and soothe irritated skin . Certain oils clears acne and prevents it.
This lotion is not just for the 40's and up!
We all carry different genes and have different types of skin.
If like me you admire the positive benefits that essential oils carry, then give these recipes a try and let me know how it works for you.
1. Face Firming and anti aging serum
Mix the following essential oils together in a 2 oz dark colored glass bottle
6 drops frankincense
9 drops geranium
9 drops cypress
3 Tbsp Sweet Almond
3 Tbsp Rosehip
You can use this serum twice a day and of course a small amount goes a long way so use as little as possible if you do not want to feel like you have greasy skin.
2. Firming Body lotion
Mix the following essential oils together in a dark colored glass bottle
8 drops patchouli
5 drops cypress
5 drops geranium
1 drop sandalwood
Add 2 Tablespoons of your preferred carrier oil for your skin type, shake well. Apply small amounts to the skin and gently massage the lotion until absorbed.
How do you know which carrier oil is the right oil for you?
When oil is applied to the skin, the oil should absorb completely. If it just sits on top of your skin and doesn’t sink in very well, or makes your face look even shinier than before, then it’s not the right oil for you.
If your skin feels “right” and looks supple, dewy, rested, not overly shiny, and the oil absorbs well, then you’ve found your oil!
