Is your skin freaking out? Is the change is the seasons throwing you for a loop? Yes, I know I live in Miami, but the weather does change here too; it goes from unbelievably hot and sticky to not so hot and really windy. I’ve noticed that my face has been extra dry lately, even though I haven’t changed my skin care routine. What that basically means, for me, is that my skin is out of balance. As someone who is a DIY freak, when I think balance my brain automatically turns to lavender.
That may sound a bit strange to you because so many people associate lavender with a calming affect and it’s true, a good quality lavender can be very calming. But, one of lavender’s best kept secret is its ability to bring things into balance. It’s one of the reason’s why I love it so much. It amps up whatever you mix it with and just makes everything better.
So since my skin has been acting up lately, I’ve tweaked my skin care routine to compensate. I’m usually prone to breakouts, so all those blog posts that tell you to put oil directly on your face don’t apply to me; or so I thought! The idea of adding coconut, or baobab oil (my favorite!) directly to my face would be absolutely unthinkable, unless I added a few drops of lavender essential oil to the mix. So this is what I do:
I start with a toner. And when I say “toner”, I’m talking about hydrosols AKA flower water. They are the only toner I use and frankly they blow everything else out of the water (pun intended). Since my skin is out of balance I use a lavender flower water. I spritz in on right after I wash my face. Then, I make a mixture of baobab carrier oil and lavender essential oil (about 6-8 drops per ounce). Just before the lavender water dries on my face, I put a few drops of the baobab/lavender mixture on my fingertips and glide it all over my face and neck. It’s amazing how quickly it works. My pores instantly shrink and my face is absolutely glowing.
Since I’ve started this new, fall regimen my skin is looking better than ever! Do you have a fall skin care secrete you’d like to share? Let us know in the comments below.
I tried this out over the weekend and it was so good, I had to share! The best part is you'll probably have most of the ingredients in your kitchen right now! This body scrub is hydrating and helps to get rid of dry, winter skin. You'll walk away feeling warm and invigorated. I especially love this with the Pure Decadence essential oil blend because of the warming and calming effect it has on your entire body. I hope you enjoy!
It's that time of year again. The weather is starting to get a bit colder and our skin is starting to suffer; and it seems our lips always suffer the most! I've whipped up a fun and simple recipe for an ultra-hydrating lip butter. Give it a try and let us know what you think in the comments below.
Step 1 add 1/4 oz sunflower oil to a pyrex measuring cup
Step 2 add 1/2 oz shea butter to sunflower oil
Step 3 add 1/4 oz beeswax to oil and shea butter
Step 4 place pyrex container in a double boiler on low heat until melted. mix thoroughly
Step 5 remove from heat and add 5 - 10 drops of ouh-la-lavender essential oil. mix thoroughly
Step 6 pour mixture into small tins and let cool be
careful not to over fill
Step 7 Get creative and share! Share your creations with your loved ones! Go crazy with the packaging and add your own little piece of specialness. Handmade gifts come from the heart and there's no better way to make someone feel special and loved than to create something from scratch, just for them.
Be sure to keep this one in your back pocket. The holidays are just round the corner.
I can't wait to hear how your lip butters turn out. Let me know in the comments below.
It's amazing how good something as simple as ginger and lemon tea can make you feel. Not only is it great for tummy aches and colds, but it's probably one of the best kept beauty secrets around.
Lemon has a tonic effect on the body, it helps you get rid of water and is also detoxifying. Ginger aids in digestion and helps to purify the body. Everyone knows that radiant, healthy skin starts with healthy digestion and this combo will knock the socks off of just about any other beauty regimen out there. I drink it every day.
Here's my formula: Boil 2-4 pieces of fresh ginger in a cup of water (no need to peel). Let cool to drinking temperature and add 2-3 slices of Meyer lemons (you know they're my favorite). Be sure to keep the skin on so you can take advantage of those naturally occurring essential oils! Let the lemon steep a few minutes and you are good to go!
For an added boost you can add a bit of green, matcha tea: Boil ginger, add tea and lemon. Did you know adding lemon to matcha exponentially increases the health benefits of the tea? Wow!
