The optimistic world views each person as having natural beauty. However, many individuals disagree that they could ever be beautiful without make-up or skin products. Some days I feel the same way. In times of stress, anxiety, etc. my face and back break out and I feel forced to cover my acne up. After discovering essential oils and naturally made products, my face feels cleaner. In fact, since my use of these products, regular chemical based products damage my skin. When using essential oils for beauty care, many combine the oils with herbs, water, and/or lotion (ex. Shea Butter) to bring forth stronger results. Beauty shall be taken care of vigilantly because of the high number of toxins found in many products. In all respects, the outer body deserves to be treated with products that compliment it.
Essential oils do not always heal faster than other products, especially when first using them. Your skin has to adjust to them. For example, when giving up caffeine your body will feel different, if not worse, because it has relied on caffeine for a long time. Likewise, transitioning into naturally made products, your skin may take a while to heal. However, your skin will never damage from proper use of essential oils and herbs. There are very few, if not no side effects when dealing with natural skin products.
Tips for which oils to use:
- For acne; inflamed skin: Eucalyptus, Lavender and Tea Tree
- Dry skin: Rose, Olive, and Neem
- Sebum Control: Peppermint, and Argon.
