How to Choose the Right Facial Cleansers

Do you suffer from dry or oily skin, frequent breakouts, and serious acne problems? Then it’s about time you take regular cleansing seriously. Facial cleansers are essential to keep you looking healthy, young, and radiant. There are many cleansing brands to choose from and you need to figure out which one works best for your skin.

Choosing the right facial cleansers starts by knowing your skin type. Avoid cleansing products that contain high alcohol levels if you have dry skin. For oily skin, buy facial cleansers that have a lower PH level. For sensitive skin, a basic cleanser without additives and synthetic ingredients is best for you. If you put on a lot of makeup, cleanse with a product that’s made to thoroughly remove it. Delivery of the cleansing product matters as well – and so, cream-based cleansers for dry skin, foamy or gel cleansers for oily skin.

You can always consult a dermatologist if you want to be extra sure with the facial cleansers you ought to be using and the right cleansing regimen for your skin type. Ultimately, a good match for any skin type is a cleansing product that can maintain you skin’s natural balance, can effectively remove dirt and clogged pores, and keep your skin clear, hydrated, and healthy.

massage fat blasterHere are some strategies to help you on your journey to get rid of cellulite:

  1. Use a brush of real bristles to increase blood circulation by brushing in upward movements all over your body. When you finish with your shower, turn on the cold water (I use a hand held shower head) and use upward movements on the hardest setting especially on your thighs and upper arms.
  2. Perform exercises that specifically work the areas where you have cellulite. These are often places that don’t get much exercise and therefore they gather toxic waste in your body like stagnant water.
  3. Massage your whole body every day, not just the cellulite areas. Cellulite may only show in certain areas but it is a whole body problem.
  4. Use essential oils in your bath, they enter your skin by osmosis. While you are soaking in the tub, thump and bash cellulite areas to help break down those fat deposits.
  5. A healthy body needs oxygen so breathing deeply is very important. Breathing exercises actually help shift cellulite and can make an impressive difference.
  6. Take time to relax as relaxation is needed to let the body shift waste and fat deposits. In contrast, stress causes cellulite to stick around.

 


celluliteThose dimples on your hips, thighs, stomach and buttocks are actually pockets of fat that are very unsightly. The causes of cellulite can be anything from poor circulation and a lack of oxygen to water retention or hormonal changes. It could be related to anything from poor lymph drainage to menstrual cycle problems. Whatever the cause of your cellulite, there are several things you can do to lessen or eliminate it from your body.

Treatment for cellulite is not easy and may be a lifelong struggle if it runs in your family genetically. There are some things you can do whatever the cause of your cellulite. The first thing to do when you attack cellulite is to pay attention to your diet. You may be able to reverse that cellulite by changing your diet. Eat lots of fresh vegetables, buy free-range chickens, turkeys and eggs, organically grown whole grain bread, pulses (beans) and rice. Drink only spring water, fruit juices and herb teas. Do not eat dairy products from cows and cut out any fermented foods. Do eat raw cabbage. It is the best food in the world to eliminate toxins from your body.

Here are four anti-cellulite essential oil synergistic blends.  You can try two oils that you already have or two that you wish to try. I usually use the blend that smells the best to me. My favorite of these blends is the rosemary and juniper blend but sage and patchouli are also nice. Whichever you choose, remember to massage your cellulite areas while they are under water. For all of these blends, use the following proportions for use in the future or use the quantity below for two baths. Use only 6 drops per bath.

ANTI-CELLULITE BATHS

Blend 1

  • 8 drops thyme
  • 4 drops lemon

Blend 2

Blend 3

  • 6 drops rosemary
  • 6 drops juniper

Make Your Home Smell Wonderful and Relaxing with Diffusers

Give your home a relaxing upgrade with oil diffusers. Diffusers are a great way to make your house smell wonderful while helping you feel relaxed. They work by diffusing essential oils, sending a small amount of humidity into the air and filling your abode with the stress-releasing scent of your choice.

Diffusers are available in different types and are made using different materials. Each one with an assortment of features and unique designs. Ultrasonic diffusers are among the more popular ones in the market. Expert reviews lean in its favor for burning oils and producing vapor without utilizing heat, but by vibrating the water instead. Another advantage is that this type of essential oil diffuser do not use as much water as humidifiers do. Ultrasonic diffusers also allow you to drop more than just one type of essential oil, meaning you can create your own blend as desired. Additionally, diffusers are safer to use than scented candles.

There’s no greater feeling than coming home to the aromatic scent of lavender, rosemary, or eucalyptus. Use your diffusers to fill your home with a relaxing ambiance that’s proven to be beneficial to one’s health. Certain oils and their scents are proven to relieve stress and pain, stabilize your mood, and even repel insects.

Banish Blackheads Naturally

Author: Dr. Larita
October 19, 2018

Blocked sebum become blackheads when surface cells develop sulphides that turn black when they come into contact with oxygen. Blackheads are unsightly and can easily become infected. When you remove them and the opening just fills up again with more sebum; this condition is related to seborrhea, overproduction of the sebaceous glands. Even people with dry skin can develop blackheads, especially on the nose or chin but blackheads can develop practically anywhere on the body, as well as on the face. Wherever they develop, the treatment for blackheads is the same, they need to be removed.

To remove blackheads, get a bowl of steaming hot water with 2 tablespoons of cider vinegar added, put 1 drop of lavender essential oil on the water and cover your head with a towel, being sure to close off the sides too and steam your face for 10 minutes, coming up for air every 3-4 minutes. Rinse the face with 1 teaspoon of cider vinegar mixed in a bowl of hot (but not boiling) water. If the blackheads are loose, squeeze gently taking care not to damage the skin. Then splash the face with a mixture of 2 ounces of mineral water, 2 teaspoons cider vinegar – I like Bragg’s Natural Apple Cider brand, 1 teaspoon witch hazel, 2 drops each of bergamot and cypress essential oils.

After patting the skin dry, massage the following oils into the skin. This will help to prevent blackheads from coming back and also loosen the ones that are already there:

  • Lemongrass – 8 drops
  • Lavender – 5 drops
  • Clary-sage – 2 drops
  • Thyme – 5 drops
  • Jojoba oil – 5 drops

Use this massage mixture morning and night. When you wash your face, take care to use a pure natural soap. You can use eye makeup if you like but avoid face makeup and powder.


Bath Oils Once A Week To Relieve Stress

poolWork has been stressful lately. It’s usually very demanding and I put in a lot of hours so I can get some quality work done. I love what I do though and I’m very good at what I do. The long hours and the heightened stress levels are just something that I’ve gotten used to. My friends tell me that I need to get a better work-life balance so I don’t end up in an early grave. I think they might be right.

I’ve been finding activities to do that would relieve some of my stress levels. I go to a day spa once a month with some friends and we get massages and facials. I usually feel very relaxed afterwards. A friend of mine also got me some bath oils so I can take a nice, relaxing bath in my home at least once a week. One of my other friends also suggested that I do more physical activity, like hiking, to help relieve some stress. I think all these activities will have a positive effect on my life. I’m down to do anything that would balance out my life more.


Amazing Lemongrass

sore musclesMy husband and I both use essential oils every day. After a while, you start using the same ones over and over because they are tried and true even though you know there are other oils that are also amazing. We ran across a lemongrass video on YouTube that changed my mind about what I’ve been doing for sore muscles.

When I have muscle aches and pains, I usually use rosemary to soothe the hurt. After listening to the video, I decided to add a little lemongrass to my synergistic blend. I don’t know why I always have to “change” the recipe when I make a blend but I do that when I’m cooking and also with my essential oil blends. I’ve been waking up with a sore hip for the past week. I usually works itself out by the time I get to work so I forget about it until the next morning. It must have to do with how I’m laying in bed. Anyway, this morning I added 2 teaspoons of coconut oil to a small container, 2 drops of lemongrass essential oil, 2 drops of rosemary essential oil and 1 drop of peppermint essential oil. After blending well, I massaged a very small amount of the mixture on my sore hip and it worked amazingly fast.
