I’m super excited to share with you my latest discovery.
Since we started our road trip, I’ve been in photos a lot more and I wasn’t liking what I was seeing. I was looking haggard, dull, and dry. I had to do something and fast. It was freaking me out so much I’d spend minutes scrutinizing my face in the mirror and noticing all the lines etching out a deep path.
I wanted to slam on the brakes and scream, “I’m just not ready yet!” (Seriously will we ever be?)
I didn’t want the latest skin miracle cream from the likes of L’Oreal. Seriously, how could a bunch of sludgy chemicals change your face?
Nature is my elixir.
I turned to Sarah Wilson, my go girl for all things radiance and natural health.
I raced to the nearest health store for a range of oil products.
My natural beauty skin care products
Cleansing: I use Organic Jojoba oil from Natural Alternative.
Toning: Rosewater and Chamomile balancing toner from Springfields and I also use Rosewater Mist from Vrindavan.
Clay Mask: I use red clay from Vrindavan. So earthy and makes me skin feel so soft.
It cost me about $50 to buy an oil cleanser, toner and moisturizer. Judging by the amount I’ve used after a month, it should last for 6-7 months. (Rosehip oil probably 3 months) Pretty cheap skin care right?
Why I love natural skin care with oils
Going by the Ayurvedic principles, I’m a vata body type. This means I love warmth and oils. I used to hate washing my face,especially with soaps and other cleanses as it felt so cold and stripping.
It was just not a soul to body warming process for me.
I’m in love with the process of my natural oil beauty routine. I massage a little of the jojoba oil on my face and my skin gobbles it up. No cold water or washing needed.
With a hot face cloth draped over my face I allow it to seep in. I lap up the heat.
Then I give a refreshing spray of the tonic. In the mornng, I smear a few drops of rosehip oil on. My face instantly feels soft, moist and clean.
It’s so calming, so enriching, so cleansing and so clean and healthy for my skin.
I’ve been following this routine for over a month now and while my wrinkles haven’t disappeared, my skin is glowing and has life again. It feels so soft and supple.
And, I’m no longer getting pimples. I used to suffer from a lot of pimples especially on my neck. I’ve only had one since following this natural beauty skin care regime with oils.
I now rarely wear make up. I’ve even drastically reduced my reliance on the BB cream- probably 1-2 days a week only. ( a good sun glow is helping me give that up.)
Using oils for natural skin care is simple, cheap and portable.
I’m all about the oils now- returning to the mother earth and treating my skin and body to pure and wholesome products.
I’ve just finished a sweep of my toiletary bag to get rid of any lotions and potions that are not oil based and I can’t eat.
Next step, turning to all natural hair care products. I’m nervous about this one!
