Skincare

Your skin:

  • Protects the delicate internal organs, maintains body shape, regulates body temperature, acts as an excretory (elimination) organ getting rid of excess water and body wastes
  • It acts as a sense organ responsive to heat, cold, and pain.
  • It can absorb substances directly into the blood stream.
  • It is responsible for 1/4 of the body’s detoxification each day.
  • One square inch of skin contains the following:
    • 65 hairs
    • 9,500,000 cells
    • 95-100 oil glands
    • 19 yards of blood vessels
    • 78 yards of nerves
    • 78 sensory apparatuses for heat
    • 1,300 nerve ending to record pain
    • 19,500 sensory cells at the end of the nerve fibers
    • 160-165 pressure apparatuses for perception of tactile stimuli
    • 13 sensory apparatuses for cold
Skin is amazing in that substances can be absorbed and eliminated, it provides protection, and heals itself of minor injuries without any trace.
When the skin is properly nourished, elasticity allows it to stretch and contract based on the body’s needs.

Natural health techniques to support the skin:

 

If toxins cannot get out through the bowels, urinary, lymph or lungs, then the body will release them through the skin.

 

Mass-market deodorants and antiperspirants block sweat glands - one of our few avenues of elimination. Imagine what all those toxins can do over time if they’re not able to be eliminated.
Young Living has an amazing skin care line, which goes beyond improving your skin.

The skin is a reflection of what’s going on INSIDE of the body.

The seven deadly signs of aging:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Harsh skin texture
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dullness
  • Enlarged pores
  • Age spots
  • Sagging skin

These are what make you look old! Want to know how to keep your skin looking youthful and bright?

I know finding the right skin care products can be a challenge. Then, knowing what to use and when can be an even bigger challenge.

Let’s make it easier to understand more about your skin and Young Living’s skin care line. I will give you easy routines to take better care of your skin.

Young Living products contain:

  • No nanoparticles (super small particles) that can be inhaled, can penetrate the skin, and can even penetrate cell membranes to cause an increase in free radicals that damage your DNA. They are found in many cosmetic products but NOT in Young Living’s products.
  • No Parabens, which are a preservative used heavily in the cosmetic industry and that are not good for your health. Instead, Young Living uses natural preservatives like natural benzyl alcohol.
    No Phthalates, which are harmful chemicals often found in car parts, cosmetics, and especially beauty products like nail polish, lipstick, and perfumes just to name a few.
    No heavy metals.

Steps To Every Skincare Routine

While the products you use may change based on your skin type, the number of steps doesn’t change.

Asian cultures are much more likely to incorporate a long list of steps to ensure the skin is healthy and beautiful. Western culture is always on the go and limits their recommended skin care products to three.

But five - six steps is where the magic happens!

Don’t skip these steps as they are all important to creating beautiful radiant skin.

1. Cleansing: Cleanse two times daily with lukewarm water and finish with cold water. It’s important to remove dirt creating a clean canvas for the rest of your routine.
2. Exfoliating: Removes dead skin cells to reveal younger cells and give the skin a smooth and youthful appearance. Always do this after cleansing and only 2 times a week.
3. Toning: Cleansing and exfoliating disturbs the pH of the skin. Use a toner after cleansing to balance the pH. This helps to minimize the appearance of pores and give a toned or plump look.
4. Restoring: Restoring the skin is a critical part in helping the skin retain moisture and it helps increase the appearance of skin radiance. Renewal Serum serves this function.
5. Moisturizing: Apply right after the Renewal Serum (a restoring product) to lock it into the skin. Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and provides a barrier to protect the skin.
6. Refine and Pamper: Do this once or twice a week. Use a mask to lock in even moisture and radiance.

Refine & Pampering

The ART Creme Masque
Formulated to deeply moisturize skin using an exclusive blend of hyaluronic acid and pure essential oils.

ART Beauty Mask
This mask was designed with all skin types in mind. Its formula of essential oils and exotic orchid petals is the perfect combination to provide radiant, soft, and hydrated skin.

Sheerlume
Tested in Europe,after only 56 days, it was found to significantly improve the appearance of complexion lightness and intensity of dark spots. It contains ingredients like Kakadu Plum as a natural vitamin C, Licorice root extract for a balancing effect, and Madonna Lily for a brightening effect.

It takes less than TWO months to have a more even and brighter tone to your skin.

Wolfberry Eye Cream
Are you getting an idea yet of how beneficial the wolfberry is for our skin?? Use this eye cream morning and night to help soothe tired eyes and minimize the appearance of fine lines, circles and bags. This is a natural, water-based moisturizer that also contains the essential oils of Lavender, Roman Chamomile, Frankincense, and Geranium.

DIY Mud Mask
Ingredients:
Bowl for mixing
About 1⁄4 cup mud - enough to cover your face
1 drop Spearmint
1 drop Tea Tree
1 drop Lavender

Directions:
- Apply mask on cleansed skin.
- Leave the mask on the face for at least 15 minutes, or until it dries.
- Avoid facial gestures while the mask is on the face. The mask may crack.
- After 15 minutes, wash off your face with cool water.

DIY Face Oil
Ingredients:
Carrier Oil of your choice (grapeseed, avocado, jojoba, etc.)
8-12 drops of essential oils of choice based on helpful oils for your skin type (which we will get to next).

Directions:
Combine carrier oil and essential oils in a 2 ounce dark glass bottle. Shake gently to combine. Use as needed after washing.

Cleansing

ART Gentle Cleanser
A foaming cleanser that works well for all skin types. This combines Frankincense, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Lemon, Melissa, and Lavender essential oils for a soothing, cooling, relaxing combination on your skin. It also removes dirt, oil, make-up and impurities, and supports the skin's natural pH.

Orange Blossom Facial Wash
The Orange Blossom Facial Wash does contain MSM, a sulfur component, which is drying and therefore makes this product line great for oily skin. The wolfberry seeds promote hydration, the Calendula extract conditions the skin, and the St John’s extract helps with minor skin imperfections. The Orange blossom extract acts as a skin emollient.

Charcoal Bar Soap
The Charcoal Bar Soap is good for combination, oily, or acne-prone skin because it pulls out dirt and impurities without stripping the skin’s natural moisture barrier. This helps maintain a clear, healthy-looking complexion. Use this on your face or your entire body!

DIY Cleanser (no foam, no lather)
1 fresh plum
3 Tbs water
1 Tbs apple cider vinegar
1 Tbs honey
2-3 drops of Lavender eo

Chop the plum into small pieces and bring to a boil with all ingredients except Lavender. Simmer for 10 minutes. Blend in a food processor and leave to cool. Add 2-3 drops of Lavender oil. Apply to face and gently massage in. Rinse with water. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Exfoliating

Satin Facial Scrub, Mint
This smells AMAZING! It contains Peppermint essential oil along with jojoba oil, mango butter, MSM, and aloe. Works to remove layers of dead skin cells, draw impurities from the skin, minimize the appearance of pores, and give a fresh, rejuvenated look.

Poppy Seed Lip Scrub
How many of you actually exfoliate your lips?? Yeah . . . I didn’t think so! 😊 Honestly, this isn’t something I think about much either. Thankfully, YL didn’t forget about giving our lips the TLC they deserve!

Made with four different types of butters - cocoa, mango, avocado, and shea - your lips have no choice but to be left feeling smooth and soft. Massage it in a circular motion, and the poppy seeds and moisturizing formula will gently exfoliate and cleanse to help remove dry skin, creating a flawless finish for your Savvy lipstick or gloss.

Moisturizing

Orange Blossom Moisturizer
Moisturizers aren’t just for dry skin. The Orange Blossom Moisturizer helps skin maintain optimal moisture balance, controls excess oil and shine, and preps your face for makeup with its natural-looking matte finish, making it perfect for those with oily skin.

ART Light Moisturizer
ART Light Moisturizer is suitable for all skin types because it works with your skin to retain and maintain proper hydration, which is something we all need. When our cells are properly hydrated, they can better replace themselves which keeps us looking younger longer. Can I get an ‘AMEN’?

The ART Intensive Moisturizer
This is perfect for dry or mature skin. It has the combined benefits of the Sandalwood and Boswellia creams. Pracaxi seed oil and blue bird hibiscus leaf extract even skin tone and promote hydration. Stem cells from Apple Fruit extracts and Hibiscus plants help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and help the skin feel smoother and more pliable. It contains Hyaluronic acid from fermentation of bacteria, providing a tremendous amount of hydration to your skin.

Sandalwood Moisture Cream
Another powerhouse moisturizer that promotes younger, healthier skin! This cream contains wolfberry seed oil, Myrrh, Lavender, Sandalwood, and Rosemary, in addition to MSM which softens the skin and promotes elasticity. The wolfberry has so many amazing benefits for our entire body, but when it comes to our skin, the high level of antioxidants combines with different vitamins and minerals to help reduce acne, promote collagen production and even out skin tone.

Boswellia Wrinkle Cream
Boswellia Wrinkle Cream also contains wolfberry seed oil along with the essential oils of Frankincense, Sandalwood, Myrrh, Ylang Ylang, and Geranium. These all work together to build collagen, relax facial tension, reduce the effects of sun damage, minimize shine, and minimize and prevent wrinkles.

Toning

ART Refreshing Toner
I love how good it smells and that it does not dry out my skin at all like other toners I have used.
This product combines Peppermint, Frankincense, Lavender, Melissa, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, and Lemon essential oils with Aloe vera, Orchis mascula flower extract, Witch Hazel, green tea extract and more to balance your skin’s pH.

It will make your pores appear smaller and create the appearance of toned skin! YAY!

Restoring

ART Renewal Serum
I notice a big improvement in my fine lines when I use this regularly!

More Orchids! In ancient times, orchids were highly valued. Their extract can help keep the skin’s moisture. This serum helps to increase the appearance of skin radiance. The Angelica root gives you a youthful appearance. The Crocus sativus is a great skin conditioner. The Tremmella is a great moisturizer. All the other premium ingredients are formulated to deeply nourish, hydrate, and help maintain a youthful appearance.

Skin Tips

The way your skin appears can be caused by genes and behavior.

While genes do play a role, using the right products at the right time can support some of the transformation your skin is programmed to make.

Before class, I mentioned 7 signs of aging. Here are some tips to help keep your youthful appearance.

* Focus on supporting your skin at any age.
* Limit sun exposure with Young Living’s 10 or 50 SPF sunscreen or staying covered outside.
* Limit stress by deep breathing, exercising, and using aromatherapy.
* Wash your face before going to sleep.
* Do not smoke.
* Use high quality natural products - everything from Young Living falls under this category.
* Give your skin the nutrition it needs from daily moisturizers and stay hydrated with plenty of water.
* Sudden diet changes: Sugar damages proteins, like collagen that makes your skin stay tight. Go ahead, eat that candy bar. But it may give you more wrinkles! Stick to eating healthy unprocessed food if you want to keep your youthful skin.
