Looking After You: Using Nature to help your skin

“Using Nature To Help Your Skin”

Skincare is such a big concern for most people. Achieving healthy looking skin has people going crazy on purchasing all singing all dancing skincare products using them for 2 weeks and then changing their mind. While there is a place for innovative skin care brands sometimes nature can help too. Here are a few essential oils that can support your skin regime with the added benefits of inhalation of nature’s little treats

Frankincense is one of my faves, works wonders for all skin types, has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits making it great for acne-prone skin. It is also a natural toner, decreasing the appearance of pores and evening skin-tone. It encourages new cell growth, helping to tighten skin and reduce wrinkles and appearance of scars and also helps soothe chapped skin.
Tea tree is one of the more well-known essential oils for acne and blemish-prone skin. Its antibacterial properties help ward off acne-causing bacteria and assist wound healing. It also helps to regulate oil production, helping fight breakouts before they start.

Rose is one of the best essential oils for dry skin and aging, mature skin.Researchers have found that it contains several therapeutic compounds known to promote healing, especially antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory compounds. As a result, rose essential oil helps refine skin texture, tone and can be helpful with managing skin conditions such as psoriasis. One study found that just inhaling rose essential oil inhibits water loss in the skin!

Above all nature’s magic trick for our skin is water! To have healthy younger looking skin water has all the answers, so remember to stay hydrated.
