The 4 Essential Oils Your Skin is Craving

It’s a difficult task to keep skin looking and feeling great. Thankfully, essential oils are here to help you heal and then maintain healthy, beautiful skin. These all natural remedies are not only just as effective (if not, more) but safer than standard, man-made skin care products. Also, they can be much cheaper, saving you money and time. With consistent use, your skin will be visibly healthier, leading to smoother, more beautiful skin.

4 Essential Oils for Skin Care

Lavender: Lavender oil is likely the most well-known essential oil for skin care. Lavender is perfect for healing damaged skin, such as burns, cuts, and scrapes, promoting your body’s natural healing process. Lavender works down at the cellular level, making it extremely effective. And since it works cellularly, it also increases your antioxidant production to fight free radicals, which are the main cause of various diseases. So, use our Lavender-Infused Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist oil to heal and maintain your skin.

Frankincense: Frankincense oil is a mini-miracle worker. Frankincense improves the appearance of your skin all around. This includes reducing wrinkles, blemishes, and acne, healing damage caused by the sun, and restoring pigmentation to areas of discoloration. It also can restore a more youthful look by increasing collagen production to add more volume to cheeks and removing scars, stretch marks, and much more. If you want to remove blemishes of almost any sort, then pick up some frankincense.

Tea Tree: Tea tree oil has been known to relieve several skin conditions including psoriasis and eczema. Tea tree oil is a great cleanser, ridding the pores of any toxins and buildup, making it perfect for treating acne and similar skin conditions. Additionally, tea tree oil can heal cuts and scrapes similar to lavender oil. If you struggle with toxins and keeping your skin clear, then tea tree oil is for you.

Pomegranate Seed: Pomegrante seed oil is great for healing and preventing damage to your skin, especially from the sun. It contains bioflavonoids which are a natural SPF, making it a natural sunblock. It also contains elements that heal sunburns and quicken the healing process. Pomegranate oil is also used for anti-aging purposes, thus, making a serum out of it will tighten skin and promote a youthful vibrancy.

Nature’s solutions to common skin problems are by far the most effective and can cover a wide range of issues. Start using essential oils today on a consistent basis and you will find a younger looking you in the mirror.

Skin Damage and Burns: 5 Ways to Protect Yourself

Skin Damage and Burns: 5 Ways to Protect Yourself

The temperature has been rising steadily, and it’s easy to forget to care for our skin. Since your skin is the biggest organ on your body and the one that gives your age away, it’s wise to protect it. So we are going to share some easy tips to avoiding skin damage if it does get burned and how to avoid the burn altogether.

5 Tips to Protect Yourself From Skin Damage and Burns

  1. Take good care of your skin: Spray the burn with diluted lavender oil. Just mix a few drops to a cup of water and pour into a clean spray bottle. Shake well before using. Or, grab our Lavender-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil Shower Mist. Both lavender and eucalyptus are great for mild (first-degree) burns.
  2. Treat often: Repeat the above tips as often as needed. Also, shower before you go to bed and once you get up in the morning. It will not only feel soothing, but it will steal the heat from the skin, speeding up the healing process. Spray more before you go to bed to allow the oils to penetrate your skin overnight.
  3. Stay hydrated: Try to moisturize as often as possible each day after you get sunburnt and drink plenty of water. Drink A LOT of water. I can’t stress it enough. Sunburns dry out the skin immensely. Staying hydrated inside and out will keep your skin layers from drying and peeling. No one wants peely skin. We want supple, moist and glowing skin.
  4. Become a shade dweller: As long as you have that burn, stay in the shade. You will only prolong and aggravate the healing process by exposing your skin to more sun.  So stay cool, covered, and moisturized.
  5. Wear loose clothing: After a sunburn, your skin is particularly sensitive, and the nicest thing you can do for it is to wear loose fitting natural fabrics. Just say no to poly blends. Cotton and hemp fabrics are breathable and soft on the damaged skin. If you want to heal fast, you’ve got to treat your skin as gently as possible.

Skip Skin Damage

To keep that youthful glow, stay hydrated, moisturize often, and regularly use the essential oil routine. These daily practices will keep your skin nourished and protected from further harm.
