Essential oils for Beautiful and Healthy Skin

Whether you are a diamond diva or a low-maintenance mama, investing in the health of your skin with regular care not only protects this important part of your body from the harsh effects of the environment, but keeps you looking and feeling your best. The key to resilient skin is understanding what your skin needs and treating it well.

The easiest way to approach a daily skin regime is to think of it like this – in the morning skin care should focus on prevention and protection for the day. Your routine at night should be centered around cleansing and repair.

You really only need to cleanse your skin once in a day – unless you work something like construction or are raising a toddler, and then all bets are off. For the rest of you, just rinse your face with warm water in the morning before applying moisturizer and sunscreen. At night, after a full day of wind and dirt, more dedicated care is required. Wash your face with a cleanser to remove dirt, excess oils and makeup. If you choose, you can then use a toner, an exfoliant, and serums. Always end with a good, mild moisturizing lotion containing the essential oils that work best for your skin.

When refining your routine for your skin, consider the following:

  • Geranium: The sweet floral power of certified organic geranium essential oil works to balance natural oil production. It conditions the skin and works well to maintain a youthful appearance of the skin.
  • Basil: Great for sensitive skin, certified organic basil essential oil works to soothe and calm the skin. Consider for especially dry, easily irritated skin, or to calm redness and roughness.
  • Ylang Ylang: The exotic perfume of sweet certified organic ylang ylang essential oil is great for supporting oily or acne-prone skin. Use it in a cleaner, in a moisturizer, or add a drop to your exfoliant for targeted effects.
  • Tea Tree: The potent effect of certified organic tea tree essential oil works well for all skin types, especially those that want extra protection from environmental threats on the skin.
  • Cypress: The grounding, warm scent of certified organic cypress essential oil works to penetrate the skin and calm it from within. Works well in your cleanser, in a toner, or add it to your moisturizer for longer-term support.
