Anti-Aging Neck Care II

Author: Dr. Larita
August 18, 2017

When your neck starts showing signs of age, you might want to give it a special tightening treatment with the following synergistic  blend of essential oils. Use 10 drops of rose, 7 drops clary-sage, 10 drops lemon, and 20 drops carrot essential oil blended well with 1 teaspoon  of evening primrose oil. Gently massage this mixture into the skin and leave it on for at least ten minutes before wiping off the excess oil.

After a long cold winter of wearing turtle-neck sweaters and woolen scarves, the neck will benefit greatly if you slough off dead skin cells, brighten up and tone the neck and prepare it for a treatment oil as discussed in part I of anti-aging neck care. Mix 1 teaspoon of ground almond with 1/2 teaspoon of jojoba oil into a paste and rub it all over the neck and chest area in upward movements. Leave this on for 10 minutes then rinse it off with water followed by a rinse with the following tonic water: 1/4 teaspoon cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon spring water, 1 teaspoon witch hazel, and 2 drops lemon essential oil. Mix the lemon essential oil with the witch hazel and then blend that with the other ingredients. Rinse most of the paste off with water and then add the vinegar tonic water to the final rinse until all the almond paste is gone. Finish the treatment by massaging the neck with a natural moisturizing cream.


Anti-Aging Neck Care

Have you ever seen a woman whose face was beautiful but when you glanced at her neck, you thought about a turkey? No matter how much make up and concealer is on the face, if you don’t take care of the delicate skin on your neck, it will be like seeing a beautiful flower on a stalk that can not support it. The neck is one of the first places the body begins to show age.  Crinkled skin, loss of elasticity, wrinkles and double chins all lead one to look older even though great care is put into maintaining the good looks of the face. You can try to keep your neck covered with a scarf but that is not practical and, thankfully, the neck responds extremely well to essential oil treatments.

The essential oils to use for tightening the skin on the neck area are rose, geranium, clary-sage, lemon, lemongrass, black pepper, or carrot. Use any one of these oils added to a carrier oil like jojoba, evening primrose, or avocado to begin your treatments.  The neck is a very delicate area and must be cleansed with the same care you use on your face. Add one drop of one of the above essential oils to each 3/4 teaspoon of your usual cleansing cream. Then each night before bed apply the following blend: 8 drops of pettigraine, 3 drops of orange, 10 drops carrot oil, 14 drops palma rosa, and 5 drops of lemon blended well with 3 teaspoons jojoba oil, 2 teaspoons wheatgerm oil, and 2 teaspoons of avocado oil. Leave this on for a few minutes and then wipe off any excess with a tissue before going to bed.

I have heard a lot about facial masks from some of my friends and I have decided to try them out for myself. Even my boyfriend uses lots of skin care products to keep his skin young and healthy. I have some blemishes that come up every once in a while and I also have some redness and some dryness from time to time.

Having healthy skin really does a lot for my confidence and it is important that I can feel really good about my skin on a daily basis. I am excited to try out a nice facial mask that will help me to have my best-looking skin. The one that I have been looking is a great solution for dull skin, an uneven skin tone, and fine lines as well.

Finding some awesome facial masks will be really nice to ensure that I can have the full confidence that I want to have on a daily basis. I am looking forward to how my skin will feel and look after I get done using a quality mask. The mask will surely make my skin brighter and healthier and I am looking forward to using it. It will be nice to have some amazing results from the mask.


Natural Skin Care

Your skin is a living breathing organ and it must be kept hydrated just like the rest of your body. To improve the condition of your skin and delay or even reverse the aging process, do the following:

  1. drink plenty of water
  2. eat a diet rich in antioxidants
  3. wash your face with a gentle natural soap
  4. use a good moisturizing cream

Be gentle when you wash your face and don’t scrub too hard because scrubbing is not good for your skin. I splash lukewarm water on my face and then make a soapy lather in my hands but you can also use a soft cloth to wash your face. After rinsing well, I use an astringent like witch hazel on a cotton ball before moisturizing with 30 second face lift.


Dry and Itchy Skin Relief

Do you wonder whether to use an ointment, a lotion or a cream to relieve your dry skin? These terms describe the way skin care products are prepared. Ointments are prepared using oil and may stay on your skin longer but many people don’t like them because they are  greasy and don’t soak into the skin. Creams are less oily than ointments and can be made from natural products so they do soak into the skin easily. Lotions are water-based and get absorbed into the skin quickly, causing instant, but not long-lasting, relief. For longer-lasting relief, choose ointments or creams.

If you have dry or itchy skin, avoid using too much soap, antiperspirants,  hot baths or anything else that removes your natural oils. Skin dryness and itchiness is worse when the humidity is low and you should definitely avoid stress, too much exposure to the sun, and smoking or secondhand smoke.


Shea Butter Benefits

Shea butter is a 100% pure and natural cream that contains vitamin A and vitamin E which have exceptional healing properties for the skin. The vitamin A in shea butter is important for improving skin conditions including blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, and dermatitis as well as properties that treat skin allergies, insect bites, sunburns, frostbites, and many other common skin conditions. The vitamin E in this rich creamy extract may serve as an anti-free radical agent that aids in preventing the harmful effects of the sun and environmental exposure on the skin.

Shea butter is derived from the seed of the shea (also known as the Karite) tree and is extracted and prepared without the use of chemicals. The best shea butter for skin use is prepared by cold press methods without the use of added chemicals or preservatives.


Enjoying A Healthy Glow With My Facial Moisturizer

I used to struggle with really dry skin and it would get annoying and even embarrassing to have to deal with it all the time. The cold and long winters in the area where I used to live didn’t help at all. My skin would get super dry in the wintertime and it would stay pretty dry in the summer and in the fall as well. It would get hard for me to keep my skin looking great.

Finding some great moisturizer for my skin has really helped me not to have that cracked and peeling embarrassing dry skin. I found one that helps my skin to stay soft and healthy and it has helped me to stay young-looking as well. I love using this lotion and it has given me some amazing results over the years.

With my facial moisturizer, I can enjoy having the kind of healthy glow that I want to have. I like to use the lotion on a regular basis so that I can feel confident and so that I can avoid any painful cracking or itchy dry skin. I love the way that my new moisturizer works and that I no longer feel like I have to hide my skin. The lotion has been a great find with mango butter, vitamin E, and other important nutrients.


Green clay is the best of the clays and it can be used on all skin types. It is good for treating acne and other skin disturbances as well as providing an antiaging effect for mature skin. Green clay balances combination skin, normalizes oily skin and revitalizes dry skin. It is rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium and energizes connective tissue. It stimulates very gently and it is effective in increasing the lymph flow and circulation allowing oxygen to speed the elimination of waste products.

Of course, you can purchase a face mask that you squeeze from a tube providing an instant face mask but these products contain all kinds of unnecessary ingredients that may even be harmful to your skin. When I look at the expiration date on a product and it is a year or two away, I wonder how that product can be good for my skin and I want a natural alternative. That’s why I make my own facial masks and cleansers. A homemade mask takes only a few minutes to assemble and once you put your tailor made product in a jar you have your own instant face pack ready to use at any time and tailor-made for your own skin type. When you use essential oils in your facial mask, you can target the skin problems you want to target.


Aromatherapy Facial Masks I

Facial masks have beneficial effects for many skin types because they can nourish, rejuvenate, and stimulate; refine, cleanse, and peel off the outer skin layer; soothe and calm inflammation; clear acne, loosen blackheads; and act as an anti-wrinkle treatment and natural face-lift. For natural skin care, you can use practically any fruit or vegetable in your refrigerator and many other foodstuffs. You can purchase a flower water to blend your dry ingredients but I prefer to use plain spring water as the moisturizer with essential oils that are good for your skin like lavender, geranium or bergamot added for the properties they bring to the mixture.

Clay masks are wonderful because the clay has absorbed the sun and the plants and minerals of earth over thousands of years giving it rejuvenating and anti-aging benefits for our skin. Clays come in an assortment of colors from all over the world and can be found in health food stores and pharmacies. When we combine  the clay with essential oils they complement each other with a synergistic effect providing natural skin care that is highly beneficial. White kaolin clay is best used on normal to oily skin because it has an astringent effect. It removes impurities from the skin as it cleanses and it improves lymphatic flow, increasing blood circulation the the area. Fuller’s earth is a stimulating clay that is a soft brown in color. It is a cleansing clay plus it removes dead skin cells. It is useful on oily to normal skin only. We will discuss more on facial masks tomorrow!
