7 Steps to Great Skin
This year the change of seasons, my skin has been extremely dry. As I grow more mature in my life, I want to have radiant skin. It doesn't feel good for anyone when you wake up and see yourself in the mirror. If you have bad skin it can effect you emotionally and mentally. If you have clear beautiful skin you are more likely to have confidence, positive self esteem and overall happiness. Here is a tip for you to follow theses seven steps to achieve glowing skin that is sure to make heads turn. Wow I really need this.
1. Get good-quality sleep
Focus on the quality of sleep to get. Easier said then done sometimes but do your best. These oils can help. It is recommend that we get 7-9 hours asleep every night as adults. On average, most of us are lucky to get 5-6, so go to bed earlier, sleep in later. Take care of you and make sure you get your sleep.
Use Vetiver, doTERRA Serenity, Lavender, Bergamot, and Roman Chamomile to help
provide a restful night’s sleep.
We have all heard how important it is to exfoliate, doing this twice a week with a good scrub to help maintain a smooth texture on the skin surface and create a youthful glow. Try using the Reveal Facial System two times throughout the week to remove any dead skin cells from the surface of the skin to create a smooth surface for make-up application. I have the Reveal Facial system in my shower and do it on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
It is also important to follow up with a good moisturizer,
such as doTERRA’s Hydrating Cream (my favorite), Verage Moisturizer, Anti-Aging
Moisturizer, or HD Clear Facial Lotion. All of these lotions are wonderful, the Hydrating cream works best for me.
3. Relieve stress
Stress can cause dehydration, increase facial blemishes and wrinkles, and also take
away time that could be spent focusing on achieving clear, healthy skin. Stress levels can
by reduced by meditating, breathing deeply, exercising, getting a massage, and taking
time to relax. Start your day off with the sacred 10 - Give yourself 10 minutes in the morning of meditation, quiet, reading scripture, enjoying a cup of coffee, yoga stretches. This is 10 minutes of your sacred time that you deserve.
Use Petitgrain, Lavender, Clary Sage, Basil, Cilantro, Coriander, and Citrus
Bliss essential oils to help combat stress.
4. Drink more water
It is so hard to get enough water in daily unless you are really aware and paying attention. Taking care of my mom and husband and raising my three children, it is not only challenging for me to get my water, but to make sure all of them get enough water. I have alarms set on our phones to help remind us.
It is suggested to drink at least eight glasses of water each day to help rid your skin of toxins and help it regain the radiance and moisture it deserves. Try adding Lemon, Spearmint, Wild
Orange, Grapefruit, Lime or Peppermint essential oils to your water for added flavor and benefits.
5. Use good-quality skin products
doTERRA offers a diverse line of gentle, natural skin care products to help you get the
beautiful, smooth skin you deserve. Try these different skin care lines: Verage Skin Care, HD Clear Facial Kit or Essential Skin Care. I go back and forth between the Vergae and the Essential Skin Care, I love them both. My kids all have the HD Clear Facial kit and love it.
6. Take vitamins
Healthy skin starts when you first take care of your health. What you put into your body will reflect itself on your skin. Try the doTERRA Lifelong Vitality Pack which offers over 55mg of omega-3s, a blend of 210 mg of plant-sourced fatty acids, vitamins A, C, E, an energy complex of B, and potent levels of natural botanical extracts that support healthy
cell function. There is not a day I go without, these supplements are amazing. DoTERRA gives you a 30 day money back guarantee, they are doTERRA's number one selling product and I have not had anyone return them.
7. Eat healthily
Diet affects not only your internal health, but also the health of your skin. Diets that are high
in sugar can make the skin look older, and in contrast, diets comprising mostly of fruits and vegetables can protect against hurtful sun rays and greatly diminish skin irritations.
Use TerraGreens to add whole fruits and vegetables to your diet in an easy, convenient.
