Teenage troubles

Throughout the young years after puberty, the skin on your face can change and react differently for seemingly no reason at all. One day it seems oily and unmanageable, the next it’s dry and flaky. These are the important years to create a steady cleansing routine, so your face learns from your daily rituals. Even more important is using naturally derived ingredients that come from trusted sources, so you are aware of what you are putting on your face. Follow these steps to show your skin the love it deserves!

Step 1

Remove makeup and rinse your face with warm water to open your pores.

Step 2

While your face is still damp, apply Young Living’s Orange Blossom Facial Wash and lather it over your face and neck. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry with a soft facial towel. This will help control the natural oils that accumulate on your face during the day.

Step 3

After completing step 1 and 2, mix 1 drop Tea Tree and 1 drop Geranium essential oil with a small amount of light moisturizer, such as Young Living’s ART® Light Moisturizer, and apply it to your face. These essential oils promote healthier-looking skin, and Tea Tree has various cleansing properties that help reduce the appearance of blemishes.

Cracked nails and dry cuticles are problems that increase with age. Cracked nails need extra care so massage hemp oil into this area to repair them. Toenails also suffer from bacterial infections and hence an antibacterial ingredient such as hemp oil can be useful for keeping the nails clean and problem-free.
