If there is ONE thing I could go back and tell the younger me, it would be to take better care of my skin!
I have always been great about washing my face before bed and removing my makeup but where I lacked until I got older was maintenance. Eye cream in my head was meant for older women – FALSE. Sunscreen meant I didn’t want that sun kissed glow – FALSE. Paying attention to what I put on my face was too time consuming because it was all the same with different labels and price tags – FALSE.
Now, my skin is one of my main focuses when it comes to my daily beauty routine. Below I have shared with you my daily skin routine and the simple, inexpensive DIY Recipes so you too can make these great blends!
STEP 1: Wash Face – with Young Living Orange Blossom Facial Wash. This little bottle is anything but small! This face wash has been a game changer for my skin! It is invigorating and will last you a LONG time! You only need a teeny-tiny drop, think pea size. A little goes a long way! I use this both in the morning and at night.
Step 2: Apply Toner
Toner is a great way to remove dirt, oil and grime. Toner also helps shrink pores and give your skin PH balance. Our skin is naturally acidic, normally with a pH balance of between five and six. After cleansing, due to the alkaline nature of soap, the pH balance of skin gets disturbed. When this happens your skin needs to work overtime to restore the balance (and that may result in oil), but using a toner helps to restore this balance quickly.
Toner can do much much more! Do your research and start using this amazing, refreshing recipe! I highly recommended only using Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar which you can find in most grocery stores. You can find the Rosemary and Tea Tree essential oils by visiting Young Living.
Step 3: Apply Eye Cream
This is advice I wish I would have known in my early 20’s! The skin around the eyes is more fragile, more prone to dryness, and quicker to show age and fatigue. Squinting and constant movement of the eyes also hasten the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and fluids collect under the eyes and cause puffiness and dark circles. Eye creams can address some of these issues.
I have fallen for Young Living’s Wolfberry Eye Cream. It feel great on the skin and is loaded with some pretty amazing and naturally powerful ingredients! Wolfberry Eye Cream is a natural, water-based moisturizer. Containing the antiaging and skin-conditioning properties of wolfberry seed oil, this cream soothes tired eyes and minimizes the appearance of fine lines.
Step 4: Moisturize
Ladies and gentlemen … soft skin is good skin! Moisturized skin is sexy skin. Did you know that it only takes 26 seconds for the things we put on our skin to be absorbed into our body!? 26 seconds! wow! Makes you think about what you put on your body, doesn’t it? This is my favorite essential oil blend that I use both in the morning and at night.
I found this amazing Bentonite Mask recipie from a fellow Young Living member and fell in love! My skin feels so amazing after each mask! I highly recommend this to EVERYONE! Your skin will thank you!
On a daily basis it is VERY important to hydrate!! You should be drinking water throughout the day. This will help the appearance of your skin dramatically!
How much to drink daily can be a bit confusing. Here’s a little weight based formula to help you to figure out how much water you should be drinking daily.
- Take your current weight and divide by two.
- Take that number and drink that many ounces of water a day.
- So if you weigh 130 pounds you should drink 65 ounces of water a day.
If you exercise for under an hour an extra glass or two of water should do the trick of replenishing fluids lost though sweating, but if you are exercising for over 60 minutes you will need more.
