My favorite DIY projects involve me making my own skin care products. For years I spent way to much money on my skin. I bought all the pricey skin care lines because they all promised to give me miracle results. Well, they didn’t. I was putting toxins and chemicals into my skin. About 3 years ago my skin started breaking out like crazy and this lasted for 2 years. It was humiliating. I am in my mid thirties, I should not have a face like a teenager. I tried everything, including harsh products that were very unhealthy for my skin. I FINALLY figured out what the problem was 2 years later! My skin was breaking out from the combination of excess candida in my gut and also because of the fact that my hormones were very unbalanced.
First I was lucky enough to discover Young Living’s Progessence Plus. This stuff was worth as much as gold to me. Once I started using this, I was no longer having the severe ups and downs like I was. My face also began to clear up as well. I believe every woman should try Progessence Plus (P+).
The second thing that helped clear up my face was a great probiotic. Once I started regularly taking that, my skin started to heal. Gut health really is something that people should be paying attention to.
Now that my skin is looking SO MUCH BETTER, I no longer wanted to put chemicals on it. I wanted to just only pure ingredients that would help continue to heal it. And also, hopefully heal the scars the acne had left.
Today, I want to share one of the things I make.
I use equal parts coconut oil and baking soda. I add whatever essential oils I choose to it. Mix with a mixer for a few minutes and store in a glass jar. Easy as that!
There are so many essential oils that are great for the skin. For this recipe I used Geranium and Lavender.
I love it. It’s gentle and soothing. I do this about 2 times a week. It will help your skin GLOW. And it only takes about 5 minutes to make!
This is me now with no makeup and in the sun 🙂 It’s getting so much better!!
