Raw Trainer DIY Skin Care Regime

September 23, 2014

An article about the harmful chemicals in skin care inspired me to share my simple skin care regime that I use daily.  

Herbal Gel Skin Wash

Recommended for all skin types except very dry or environmentally damaged castile This product can be used as a face and body wash and if the essential oils are adjusted can also be an effective antibacterial soap. (If diluted 50 % with distilled water it also makes a great shampoo for oily hair). 1 – 16 ounce bottle of unscented liquid castile soap 20 drops of a single or combination of essential oils based on your skin type or preference 1 tsp. or more of almond oil or vegetable glycerin (depending on your skin type). Add the essential oil and almond oil/vegetable glycerin to the castile soap and shake vigorously. You can store the product right in the castile soap bottle or transfer into smaller bottles. For maximum freshness use within 1 year. Application: Shake the mixture well and using your fingertips apply ½ teaspoon to cover your entire face, throat, and décolleté. A little goes a long way!  

Rosewater Cleanser/Tonerrosewater-500

Recommended for normal, dry, mature, sensitive, dehydrated, environmentally damaged, sunburned, or wind burned skin This cleanser is great for makeup free days since it does not remove makeup. It doubles as a moisturizing toner and leaves skin feeling soft and supple. ¾ cup rose water ¼ cup vegetable glycerin Combine the ingredients in a storage container and shake well for 30 seconds to blend. No refrigeration is required but it is best if used within 6 months. Application: Use 1 teaspoon per application using a cotton pad.    

Face and Eye Moisturizer/Makeup Remover  jojoba-oil

Recommended for all skin types  ¼ teaspoon jojoba oil Application: cleanse and tone your face. Pour a few drop of oil on a cotton pad or finger tips. Lightly massage oil across the brow bone and around just under the eye. Do this several times then pat off excess oil just leaving a light film. I use a combination of Immortelle Essential Oil Blend and Jojoba Oil as my full face moisturizer in the evenings. Immortelle - Anti-Aging Blend A beautiful blend of powerful essential oils, Immortelle Anti-Aging Blend is formulated to protect and nourish skin while helping to reduce inflammation―a major contributor to the aging process. Supporting skin health at the cellular level, these essential oils sustain smoother, more radiant and youthful skin. Immortelle1
