Got Winter Skin?
By Terri Bonin
Winter can be pretty rough on the skin, right? It’s dry and cold outside and frankly, my skin doesn’t love it. Gone are the days of lounging on the beach while sunbathing the day away. I know they’re not gone forever but boy do I miss them right about now. It’s important to keep the skin hydrated and cleansed so I thought I would talk about some products you can use to cleanse your face.
So here’s how to get your glow on and then keep it through those brutal winter months…
There are certain essential oils that can reduce the appearance of blemishes on your face and improve the appearance as well. Yes, please! You can add essential oils to your daily cleanser or moisturizer, rub them directly on your face, make a misting spray with 10-20 drops of oil and 2oz of water, or even make your own toner by filling a 3oz glass bottle with witch hazel and adding 10-15 drops of oil ~ shake before applying with a cotton ball.
Okay great, but WHAT oils should you use? I’m so glad you asked! Here are some of the best cleansing oils that Young Living has.
Tea Tree moisturizes AND cleanses simultaneously and it can be used as a spot treatment for blemishes. Buh bye blemishes!
Frankincense can reduce the appearance of uneven skin tones and it smells awesome.
Orange can be used for oily skin to smooth and balance. Just make note that it’s photosensitive so if you need to wait 12 hours before going sunbathing after applying it to your skin.
And last but not least, Blue Tansy helps to reduce blemishes while it cleanses and beautifies the skin. Dilute it though unless you want to look like a smurf. 😉
