The Importance of the Moisturizing Phase

April 19, 2017

It’s not all that uncommon for people to skip out on the moisturizing phase of skin care, but it’s an important stage to reduce the visible effects of aging. When people age, their skin becomes less hydrated which necessitates the use of anti-aging moisturizers to have healthier skin. In the winter, when skin is at its driest, it’s essential to moisturize on a daily basis. There are hundreds of different moisturizer products available, and choosing the right product can be a challenge.

You don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on your moisturizing products, nor do you want a product that doesn’t work well. Not all moisturizers are created equal, so it’s important to shop around, ask friends, and read customer reviews to find the best products. When you’re using a great moisturizer, you’ll notice an immediate difference in the look and feel of your skin.


How to Treat Wrinkles

Laugh lines are natural, but wrinkles that start making you feel like your skin looks older than you feel are another thing completely!  Here’s how to deal with them:

1.  Sunscreen is the number one way to prevent sun damage and wrinkling.  Apply any time you’ll be spending time outdoors, whether it’s sunny or cloudy, summer or winter.

2.  Vitamin A (Retinoid) creams can increase sun sensitivity, making number one even more important!  Vitamin A stimulates collagen production and stops cells from breaking down further.

3.  Alpha Hydroxy acids exfoliate and increase collagen.  Just remember to be gentle with your skin!

4.  Antioxidants in your food and on your skin are the key to feeling and looking youthful!

Anti-Aging Neck Care II

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.

A Great Skin Tightening Product

1 skin tightening faceliftAs time marches on, our minds and bodies change. People associate age with wisdom, but it’s not usually associated with beauty. Even so, I think I look quite beautiful for my age. And honestly, I have a wonderful facelift cream to thank. It helps keep my skin moisturized and healthy, since the cream is made up of natural ingredients that benefit my skin.

The skin tightening cream I use also helps protect my skin from drying out, which is great. I used to have very dry skin, and that was never a good thing. Instead of having itchy and dried out skin, my skin is moisturized and soft, which is lovely. It also makes me look a lot more youthful in general. It tightens up my skin so it doesn’t show wrinkles, and that’s always a positive thing.

But to me, the best thing about this skin tightening product is the fact that it’s completely natural. The ingredients are premium quality, because there aren’t any unwanted chemicals, preservatives, or fillers. It’s just what it says on the bottle, and I’m happy to have it. The skin tightening cream really works for me, and I can’t see me ever stop using it.


A facial scrub is used to exfoliate the skin and unplug pores. It will also leave the skin looking fresh and new as the dead layer of skin cells is sloughed off. You only need about 1 teaspoon of material to make your scrub and you can use foods you already have in the kitchen as your base. Good bases that you may already have are oatmeal, dried peas, almonds and hazelnuts. Whichever base you use must be ground up in a blender or by pestle and mortar so that it forms small, gritty lumps like coarse sand. The starches and enzymes in the cereals, peas or nuts will be triggered during treatment and will work on cleansing the face.

Oatmeal is commonly used in cosmetic products and when combined with ground almonds, it makes an excellent scrub. Mix one teaspoon of oatmeal, one teaspoon of ground almonds, and one drop of either lavender, clary-sage, or basil essential oil. Roll this combination over the surface of your face with damp fingers then rinse it off with warm water. Basil essential oil is very good for this type of scrub because it lifts dead skin cells and rejuvenates the skin tone.

Basil is an important ingredient in the following revitalizing face scrub which is best to use if you have normal to oily skin: 1 teaspoon ground almonds, 1 teaspoon dry oatmeal, 1 pinch salt, 1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar and 1 drop basil essential oil. Mix the vinegar, salt and basil together then add the almonds and oatmeal. Again, use damp fingers to roll the mixture over your face and then finish by rinsing your face well with warm water.


Women’s Gold

Another name for shea butter is “women’s gold” because the job of  extracting the butter from shea nuts gives employment and income to many rural African village women. Shea butter is used in foods and cooking as well as soaps and beauty products because it is so safe and beneficial. It also contains natural ingredients that protect skin from the sun.

African women and healers have known about and used shea butter for thousands of years. Its properties are so amazing it is almost magical in its healing effects on burns, skin conditions, ulcerated skin, stretch marks, and dryness. The vegetable fats in shea butter promote cell regeneration and circulation making it a superb revitalizer for troubled or aging skin.


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 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.

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 anti-aging 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.
