We’re going to having a fun class soon thats all about Young Living beauty school! I’ve fallen in love with this regimen. Now that I’m in my 30’s I feel a little more inlcined to baby this face a little. I’ve only just consistently statred to incorporate these products. I’ve seen a huge change in my dark circles under my eyes, and puffiness. I also have freckles and those lovely brown spots from the sun. They have all started to fade!!

Follow these 5 Steps to your most radiant skin ever! Cleanse, Exfoliate, Tone, Massage, Moisturize

If you need a little help remembering the facial steps use this acronymn:

Cows – Eat – Tiny – Mice & – Men

weird yes, but very effective.

 

steps to radiant skin young living

 

non toxic cleanser face wash young living

Cleanse

Wash hands before touching your face to cleanse.
Washing hands prevents bacteria from traveling from
your hands to your pores.
+
Use lukewarm water to wash your face and a clean towel
to pat your skin dry. Do not rub, as this irritates the skin
 Using the Orange Blossom Face Was by Young Living.
** our frugal tip is adding 2 tbsp of face wash to an empty hand foam pump bottle, fill the rest with water. Now you have the perfect foaming face wash and this bottle will last months! My first mixture lasted me 4 months!!
non toxic exfoliate face young living gentle sensitive skin

Exfoliating

Your skin replaces its self every 30-60 days. The process of exfoliating speeds up this process by eliminating dead skin cells and allowing the skin new cells to flourish. At the same time exfoliating promotes the absorption of nourishing serums and moisturizers.

+

Satin Facial Scrub™ Mint is an advanced cleansing formula designed for normal skin. It cleans, nourishes, and stimulates without damaging the skin’s natural pH balance. Safe, gentle ingredients help to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin for a fresher, smoother appearance. Satin Facial Scrub™, Mint is a water-based exfoliant. It contains jojoba oil, mango butter, MSM, aloe, and Peppermint essential oil to minimize the appearance of pores and invigorate dull skin.

+

Rub all over the face avoiding eyes. Use a gentle circular motion with fingertips for a good 30 sec  to a minute, then rinse!

non toxic DIY toner for face young living

Toning

Toner is the reset button for your skin.

The ideal pH level of your skin is about 5.5. After your cleanse is recommended to exfoliate , your skin after that in a period of an hour will restore its pH. An ideal toner however will restore the pH immediately.

The toner removes impurities and while cleansing th skin opens pores, toning actually close pores to their desire original size.
A-R-T Purifying Toner is specially effective in keeping environmental debris and pollutants to a minimum; it also increases blood circulation to give your skin an ideal glow.

You can make a an easy DIY Toner at home. I love this blend.Dont be afraid of the vinegar smell, its masked pretty well with the essential oils, and once the toner has dried on the skin you can’t smell it at all!

DIY  Toner Recipe

  • In a 2oz. Glass spray bottle
  • add 6 drops Lavender  –  6 drops Frankincense – 3 drops Tea Tree Oil
  • Fill with : 1/2 bottle with witch hazel , 1/4 of Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar , 1/4 Distilled Water
  • Shake & Spray on cotton rounds

 

non toxic face massage young living

Deep Facial Massage Cleanse With Essential Oils

Put the mixture in the palm of your hand and rub your hands together to warm the oils. Smooth the mixture over your face gently in a smooth massaging movement to stimulate circulation for better absorption.

+

Relax, inhale the scent,  and enjoy your message.

+

Soak a washcloth in warm water and gently hold it over your face until it cools. Gently pat your face until it cools.

non toxic face moisturize young living

Moisturize

Moisturizing daily is the essential beauty secret that’s no secret. This crucial step hydrates, nourishes, and protects the skin.

I love to use SheerLume –
Sheerlumé contains a proprietary blend of Sacred Frankincense, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Clove, and other powerful essential oils, as well as third-party tested alpine plant extracts that protect the skin from external stressors that advance the appearance of aging.

Use Sheerlumé daily to unveil a more radiant, flawless-looking complexion.

Sheerlume is a solution to complexion discoloration, whether it’s brought on by the natural process of aging, sun exposure, or other causes. Research suggests that uneven and dull skin tone contribute even more to the appearance of aging than wrinkles!

 

DIY Non-Toxic Face Mask!

I love this simple recipe. I have seen my pores get alot smaller!

Weekly, or as needed, use this Bentonite clay facial mask after cleansing skin. It’s easiest to remove in the shower!

 

 

To complement your skincare regimen, make sure you are giving your skin the nutrients it needs.

Try including these foods as part of your healthy diet:

  • Carrots

Carrots are packed with vitamin A, which is good for clearing up breakouts. It helps reduce the overproduction of cells in the skin’s outer layer were dead cells and sebum can clog pores. Add nibbling on half cup of carrots a day to your snack routine and reap these benefits!

  • Dark Chocolate

As if we needed another reason to eat chocolate! Flavonols, the antioxidants in dark chocolate, can reduce roughness in the skin and protect against sun damage. It only takes a few ounces a day to get this antioxidant in your system—what a sweet benefit!

Possible substitution: Blackberries, cherries, blueberries, or raspberries (although you would have to eat a large amount).

  • Flaxseeds

These seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids, known to diminish age spots and erase fine lines. Consuming just over two grams (just a teaspoon) will help prevent irritation and redness in the skin as well as contribute to better hydration. Try just sprinkling a teaspoon over oatmeal or veggies to get your daily dose.

Possible substitution: Flaxseed oil (1 tablespoon with sautéed veggies), salmon (4 ounces), or walnuts (1 ounce or about 14 halves).

  • Green Tea

When green tea is hot, it releases catechins, a type of antioxidant that has anti-inflammatory properties. These antioxidant powers fade as it cools, so drink it while it’s hot. Only two cups a day will help cells’ resilience to sun damage, and may even help reduce sun damage.

Way back in our Amarillo days, we lived just blocks away from this little whole in the wall food joint. It was literally a 10X10 square shack that had the BEST Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches. Absolutely full of fat and calories, but the kind that you think is so worth it you know. It’s been 7 years since I’ve had a sandwich like that!!

Well I’ve found the recipe that satisfies that taste, and without the huge hoagie bun! No Carbs, and a awesome clean eating recipe that the whole family will love!
