How to SOOTHE, HEAL, & NOURISH Skin naturally

I used to spend silly amounts on perfecting my skin, like $$$!!  And I still wasn’t happy. I also had zero clue about the 1,000’s of chemicals in the products I was using – did you know 13,000 chemicals are used in beauty products, and only 10 percent have been safety tested?  Whoa.

It’s the manufacturers responsibility to safety test their products (with no third party to over-see this process) and even then, they’re under no obligation to disclose its results. Just because it’s sold over-the-counter does not make it safe for use.

Just 15 months ago I stripped it ALL back. I’m happier with my skin in my 40’s than I was in my 30’s. It works out a WHOLE lot cheaper too! 

I started with a super simple morning cleanser using 3 essential oils I refer to as the ‘skin trio’.

doTERRA Lavender – is very calming, soothing, and healing for the skin. It’s also a great little anti-ager.

doTERRA Melaleuca aka Tea Tree – nature’s disinfectant! Incredibly clean and cleansing for impurities or blemishes.

doTERRA Frankincense – a great little anti-ager for helping smooth out lines, wrinkles, soothe, heal and repair the skin like magic!

I simply add 6-8 drops of each oil to some organic virgin coconut oil in a 50ml pot. I take a little on the finger each morning and massage all over my face, including my eyes – oh it’s A-mazing for removing eye make-up (with zero sting!)

It leaves my skin feeling soft, supple, and clear with zero redness or blotchiness – yeah!

To protect yourself and ensure you’re using only safe personal care products, check the EWG database here.  It is also a great source for learning more about which household products are safe for use.  (Whilst the EWG is a US site it also contains information for some globally used brands.).

Remember, our skin is highly absorbent – think about how a nicotine patch works, our skin sucks up anything we apply on it, so we want our skin products to be good enough to eat!
