Natural Ways To Get Rid Of Dry Skin

Face it, if you have chronic dry skin on your face, there are several potential culprits. One, you are not eating right and may have a vitamin A deficiency. Two, you are using chemical laden skin care products that are actually drying out your skin. Three, you are not using anything other than soap to cleanse your skin. I hear people complaining all the time about their terribly dry, dull, wrinkled skin and when I ask what they are using, many have this to say…“Oh, I don’t waste my money on a face moisturizer, I use soap!” Bahahhah!

Soap? That’s obviously not working for them. You don’t want to spend alot of money taking care of your skin; I get that, and you don’t have to. There are many inexpensive natural moisturizers on the market today that can get rid of dry skin without applying chemicals that can make it worse. There are also inexpensive home remedies for dry skin that date back hundreds of years.  Here are just a few from “The Living Beauty Detox Program” by Ann Louise Gittleman, M.S., C.N.S.

  • To give your dry skin a healthy glow, mix two parts rosewater to one part glycerin and apply a few drops all over your face after cleansing your skin.
  • Give yourself an old fashioned mayonnaise facial by massaging it into your dry skin for 15 minutes.
  • Make a mask of dry oatmeal and a whipped whole egg. Massage on your face and let it stand for 5-10 minutes. Rinse with warm, than cool, water.
  • Beat together 1 egg, 1 tblsp. milk, and 1 tsp. honey. Apply to face and let harden. Remove with warm water, followed by cold water.
  • Blend 2 drops of sandalwood oil and 1 drop of frankincense oil and 2 tsp. of honey. Apply mask to clean skin and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly. This mask can be used once a week and is great for mature skin.
  • Add a couple drops of neroli, lavender, or jasmine to your moisturizer or anti aging cream to soften dry skin.

You don’t have to spend money on expensive moisturizers for dry skin when there are many natural alternatives to try home.

Get Rid Of Oily Skin

You think it sucks having oily skin? Think again. You may hate it now, but according to Kat James, author of the Truth About Beauty, oily skin actually ages slower. Yes, you read that right; your oily skin will be a blessing to you some day when you look 10 years younger than everyone else your age. So, what can you do to get rid of oily skin until you can truly appreciate it?

First and foremost, many oily skin care products on the market today contain synthetic ingredients that can strip your skin of the natural oils it needs for optimum skin health. You will know these products when they leave your skin tight and dehydrated. Of course, most people would assume that it is a good thing however, it may cause your oil glands to work overtime creating the oily skin you so wish to get rid of.

It is extremely important to balance the skin by using only natural skin products without known skin irritants which can make it worse. (more…)

Safe Cosmetics-Moving Forward

The more I dig, the more I find. Awesome safe cosmetics that is. It seems to be never ending; there are times when I get sucked in for an entire day or two researching what I find. You could say (and I think I have said this before) that I am addicted. It’s exciting to find those products that not many people know about……natural skin products and natural cosmetics that everyone can’t help but love.

It’s also exciting to know that the Campaign For Safe Cosmetics is making great strides to bring awareness to dangerous chemical ingredients in our beauty care products by enlisting companies to take the Compact For Safe Cosmetics pledge to make safer products.

This year 322 beauty care companies have earned the title of “Champion” and you can find the list here. Keep in mind that there are many more companies offering products without these chemicals and have been for years, however not affiliated with this movement.

CBS News reports a coalition of about 150 groups worked with these companies to get them to remove substances banned by health authorities in other countries, particularly chemicals linked to cancer and birth defects and preservatives that release formaldehyde, which can cause cancer as well as burn the eyes, nose and throat. The coalition also pushed for companies to list all ingredients in their products, which many companies don’t do.

It’s not over however. Big companies like Johnson & Johnson while removing dangerous chemicals from baby products, have not done so with adult products and most big companies still use ingredients that cause cancer or reproductive harm. Europe has already banned these chemicals. What does that tell us?

Do your part by purchasing from natural skin care companies (a small sampling here), and ban those companies that refuse to remove dangerous chemicals from their products. While signing petitions can help, the biggest reason for any company to change is consumer demand and more and more consumers are saying no to chemical laden skin care products. Bottom line…move your money, and everything will fall in place.

I am proud to be involved in this growing natural beauty care segment; natural cosmetics represent the fastest growing segment of the $50 billion cosmetics industry and for good reason. Safe cosmetics are important for the future health of our children and their families.

Beautiful Skin-Not Without This

There is no doubt that natural skin products and essential oils play a large role in recovering skin damage and maintaining overall skin health, that’s why I am here. Natural, organic substances work in harmony with the natural forces of the body. To make the most of natural products however, whether for your health or beautiful skin, it is necessary to abide by the laws of nature, especially regarding food.

The best anti aging cream in the world or the newest cosmetic procedure will not keep your skin from aging if you continue a diet of unnatural foods. There is no disputing this fact. Just as skin needs protection from outside pollution, it also needs protection from pollution on the inside.

Beautiful skin depends on the blood which nourishes it and the health of your blood is determined by the food you eat. Overeating or eating the wrong foods may lead to toxic congestion of fluids causing the cells in your body, including skin, to become slow and starving them of oxygen.  If the body is undernourished, the skin is undernourished. Period. (more…)

Dr. Mercola’s Death By Medicine

I am posting a video that I found interesting by Dr. Mercola citing the facts about our healthcare industry and how the drug industry is killing us. Everyone of us knows someone who is medicated for no reason.

I will never forget the first time I realized this when I brought my daughter to the doctor and was told that her fever was caused by a virus. This virus could not be cured with antibiotics however he gave me a prescription stating “if it makes you feel better.” Needless to say, I never filled it.

My father in law passed away while on 16 different medications.

My good friend, a gym instructor, is on anti anxiety medication, along with high blood pressure meds and she is only 38 years old. Her son has been on anti anxiety medication since the age of 8.

Americans put more emphasis on sickness and treatment rather than health, fitness, and nutrition. Dr. Mercola has the facts. Spread the word. Pass this video on to your loved ones, share this video using the buttons below, do whatever you can to get this information out there, and most importantly, prevent the use of prescription drugs through, exercise, diet, and natural supplements.

Men Skin Care-It’s Time To Turn Him On

It’s time ladies: time to turn your man on to skin care for men including anti aging creams, cleansers and a good SPF cream. After all, you don’t want him to be a wrinkled mess at 50 when you look 20ish! Men skin care products will help reverse some of the damage done and daily SPF moisturizers will protect him from additional skin damage from the sun.

When we think of men skin care products, we think of shaving cream, soap, and my husband’s favorite…body wash/shampoo. Yes that’s both body wash and shampoo together! There’s no hope for him, however things are changing for many others.

Today, more men, especially younger men, are receiving skin care treatments at spas and physician offices. I hear many of my friends complaining that their anti aging skin products are disappearing faster than normal and many men are starting to ask questions. My brother in law uses the entire men’s Arbonne line and my best friends husband is hooked on her night cream.

While many men skin care products on the market today more than likely contain similar if not identical ingredients as our own, it just wouldn’t feel right for him to buy anything but “skin care for men.” According to Yum Gourmet skincare for men, a man’s skin is approximately 15% thicker than a woman’s, and is generally firmer, showing signs of aging less rapidly. However, once the aging process begins, typically around the age of 40, collagen and elastin production decreases dramatically causing the skin to show rapid and visible signs of aging with the emergence of deep wrinkles.

Effective skin care can slow and reduce aging, restoring firmness and elasticity to the skin. So here’s the thing…it’s Christmas time and what better way to introduce a man to skin care and anti aging creams made especially for him? I even found some natural skin products for your man. Here is a sampling…. (more…)
