Since becoming a part of the Young Living community, my family has made so many positive holistic, healthy changes in our daily lives. One of our top goals for the year is to cut as many chemicals from our home as possible. We started by tossing out all our expensive face lotions, serums, creams & moisturizers and now strictly use essential oils on my skin morning and night.
One of our favorite things about essential oils are all the simple, but so much fun diy’s. Who doesn’t like making their own sugar scrub? Or herb -infused vinegar? One of my personal all-time favorites is our Glow Serum.
In a 1 oz.amber glass dropper bottle, 1 tbsp rosehip oil gel (rich in Vitamin C & promoted a natural healthy glow when used consistently), 15 drops Frankincense (used to help fight blemishes, the appearance of large pores, prevent wrinkles, and help brighten, lift & tighten skin to naturally slow signs of aging) + 5 drops Geranium (promotes cell regeneration & supports smooth, healthy skin, used to treat acne, reduce inflammation) & 5 drops Carrot Seed (beneficial for skin health and lymph stimulation, high in antioxidants, it’s a natural for any anti-aging skin formula) and top with Jojoba oil. Apply to clean skin each night before bed! I also use a drop of Frankincense + jojoba oil as my main moisturizer, no other lotions or skincare products in sight! I use this serum after washing, under makeup & always before bed.
Ps. If your skin type is prone to acne, wrinkles, psoriasis, and other inflammatory condition, add 10 drops Lavender. It will aid in speeding up the healing process and stop inflammation.
Our beauty regimen also includes our Magic Blemish Roller. The perfect spot treatment for blemishes. 15 drops each of Frankincense, Tea Tree, Copaiba and Lavender in an amber glass roller ball with one pump of jojoba oil. Apply morning & night where needed.
Suggested daily usage: after washing, under makeup & always before bed! Your skin will look noticeably better, fine lines will begin fading & your skin will feel hydrated all day!
Then, we apply our Savvy Minerals makeup as a part of our daily morning routine, to prepare for our day or any special occasions.
#ProTip: After applying a generous coat of mascara, using an additional brush (ie. eyeshadow brush), dip brush into Diamond Dust veil. Dust off & apply onto lashes to create a mind-blowing falsies lash effect! Finally, re-apply one more coat of mascara to seal them in place. Talk about big volume without the toxic glues or fibers 💃🏻
At night, after we take off our makeup, we apply our diy lash serum potion to promote thicker, longer lashes & growth. If interested, you can purchase here. We hope you find this regimen and diy helpful, hopefully most of you have many of these things on hand already to start using right away!
