Natural Skin Care at it's finest!
“Beauty resonates from the soul, its an energy, a Light.
It’s not from the outside, it’s from the inside.”
~ Carmindy, a speaker for YL Beauty School.
This month I attended Beauty School hosted by Young Living Essential Oils, and I committed to you to learn on a level of being able to educate YOU. I learned about health from a beauty standpoint. I am very comfortable educating you about your physical alignment, your inner beauty, your poop, but BEAUTY PRODUCTS?!?
This natural gal (me) has lots to learn...and I am grateful for natural products with Young Living Essential Oils I have trusted and used for years. I choose to remain natural and age gracefully.
With Young Living's Skin Regimen, LESS is MORE!
There are 3 simple steps:
1. CLEANSE, EXFOLIATE, TONE
2. RESTORE & MOISTURIZE
3. REFINE & PAMPER
1. CLEANSE: You have two choices within Young Living, ART GENTLE CLEANSER or ORANGE BLOSSOM FACIAL WASH.
ART Gentle Cleanser is for all skin types as it supports our skin's natural pH balance. It is foam that gently removes dirt, oil, make-up, and impurities. Its conditioning and cleansing agents are derivatives of coconut oil. It has Frankincense, Sandalwood, Lemon, Melissa, and Lavender essential oils in it. It's Orchis Mascula is from the orchid flower keeping moisture in for good hydration. It has natural benzyl alcohol from plants as its preservative.
ORANGE Blossom Facial Wash is your choice for more oily skin with redness and/or blemishes. It is great for teenagers! It has MSM which helps with irritated skin and redness with wolfberry promoting hydration. The orange blossom extract acts as a skin emollient and calendula extract conditions the skin. The oils of lavender, patchouli, Lemon, and Rosemary are refreshing and invigorating.
EXFOLIATE: SATIN Facial Scrub, Mint is new as it has been reformulated to be more of a facial scrub than before. Exfoliating achieves smooth, silky skin while removing old cells, revealing younger looking cells. ALWAYS CLEANSE BEFORE EXFOLIATING. Peppermint, Roman Chamomile, And Rosemary essential oils give this product its fresh feel on the skin. MSM, Aloe Vera, jojoba oil and algae extract feed our skin with vitamin and minerals with hydration and nutrients. Sodium hyaluronate helps balance moisture in our skin. I LOVE this new scrub. The older version was great for my feet and my body, but this one is awesome for my face!
TONE: ART Refreshing Toner helps remover all left-over residue particles in the Cleaning process. Toner helps your pores appear smaller and creates a barrier on the skin against environmental elements. Peppermint, Frankincense, Lavender, and Lemon essential oils give it our toner its fresh feel along with Aloe Vera, Melissa leaf, Orchis mascula, Which hazel water, green tea extrace and sandalwood.
2. RESTORE & MOISTURIZE: You have choices here. You can choose just one that suites your skin type or choose the serum + a moisturizer. I personally like to have them all in my cabinet so I can choose the one I desire for the day, mid-day, and night.
ART Renewal Serum connects immediately to moisturizing cream, so apply one squirt before you moisturize to increase your skins radiant appearance! Our serum has our Sensation essential oil blend, Angelica root, crocus sativus (saffron) for skin conditioning, Tremmelia for moisture, oat protein, traditional Chinese herbs and Phaleonopsis orchid, Japanese knotweed, Boswellia, and myrrh.
ART Light Moisturizer helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, supports skin elasticity, and gives hydration. This is for oily to normal skin types. Sandalwood and Frankincense essential oils gives it a wonderful aroma. Cupuaca Seed Butter is where its moisture comes from with olive oil, Meadow foam, Squalane, Green Tea, Aloe vera, Orchid extract, Quiliaja extract, and Vitamin E. Opuntia ficus extract and Summer snoglake bulb helps smooth the appearance of fine lines.
ART Intensive Moisturizer is our newest addition to choices for Restore & Moisture. It is a thick cream great dry or mature skin. Apply it at night or as needed. It has combined benefits of our Sandalwoood Moisturizer and Boswellia cream. It is Apple fruit extract, Hibiscus, Pracaxi seed oil, Hyaluronic acid, vitamins, murumuru butter, and the essential oils of Ylang ylang, Frankincense, Cedarwood, and Sandalwood. Its aroma is amazing!
Sandawood Moisturizer is my favorite! It is an even heavier cream for those of us that need massive moisture. The oils of Myrrh, Sandalwood, Rosewood, Lavender, and Rosemary give it a luscious smell and feel. Rose Hip oil and Gingko Biloba nourishes and hydrates while olive fruit, calendula, and kelp moisturize. Sandalwood Extract, salt of hyaluronic acid, and Chamomile extract soothes and calms.
Boswellia Wrinkle Cream is many members must have. Linoleic Acid is an emolient and skin barrier. Panthenol calms as MSM and wolfberry seed oil promotes hydration. Grape Seed extract serves as Resveratrol. Aloe vera mixed with the essential oils of Geranium, Ylang Ylang, Myrrh, Frankincense, and Sandalood are a yummy scent!
3. REFINE & PAMPER: These are steps that are not necessarily done every day, but perhaps once or twice a week/month.
ART Beauty Masque promotes appearance of younger, vital, and radiant skin. It helps soften the appearance of fine lines while re-freshening dull skin. A beauty masque promotes deep hydration. This can be done for all skin types. When applying make sure to get all the liquid out of the envelope and brush on top of the mask. Leave on at least 20 minutes.
ART Creme Masque deeply cleanses, softens, and moisturizes for a velvety feel. This masque is wonderful for dry skin and winter skin. It is made with liquid crystals. It has the oilis of Vetiver, Davana, Roman Chamomile, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Vanilla, Ocotea, and jasmine.
Sheerlume' visibly brightens and balances skin tones. Use this 2 times a day with or without your favorite moisturizing cream. This is a sheer protection against environmental elements and helps support against sun damage and wind damage. The Madonna Lily gives it brightening effects. Licorice Root extract helps it have balance effects.

OH and what is my favorite yoga pose for longevity and graceful aging?
The Headless Headstand!
It is way easier than it looks. Put your chairs close enough together that just your head fits through. Pad the chairs for your shoulders. Be on a sticky mat so your chairs do not slide and be against a wall! Put your head into place with your hands on the hairs. Walk your feet closer and closer to the wall and kick up gracefully to meet the wall with your legs. Allow your shoulders to support you. It feels very freeing and nice. To come down, bring your legs to the floor and rest your head on your arms that are on the chairs. Roll up after resting there for a bit. Please do not pop up immediately.
Let me know if you practice it.
Honestly, you will love it. It will give your body longevity and your face life...
