Face Support in a Bottle

 

So after years of having naturally good skin, I am having a few aging issues!!! I have been researching essential oils and a recipe to give you a non surgical facelift at home!!  How wonderful to look naturally younger without using the toxins and chemicals which can give you a younger look but also give you many other side effects which aren’t too pretty!!  Many essential oils have the ability to tone, tighten & firm loose, wrinkly skin on your face and neck.  Natural skin tightening oils are the best skin care treatment to maintain younger looking skin if you are above 30.  Get a natural facelift at home using skin tightening oils.  These skin tightening oils can help you get the firm skin of your early twenties!  In this recipe I use avocado oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, and olive oil as a base.  Why use these?  Read below to learn the benefits these have for your skin!! You will be amazed!

 

Avocado Oil  is prized for it’s rich nourishing qualities for skin and help balance your skin’s moisture levels.  Avocados are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins A, D and E, and can provide skin with deep moisture. The oil of an avocado is able to penetrate the skin with its thin consistency; it is also thick enough to serve as a protective barrier on the skin, much like a lotion.In addition to providing the skin with moisture, the antioxidants found in avocado oil — particularly vitamins A and E — can help soothe sunburned skin. Avocado oil also contains sterolins, which are natural steroids. They may be effective in boosting collagen production and in treating age spots. With its high level of vitamin E, avocado oil may reduce itching and inflammation of the skin and is also beneficial in softening rough and cracked skin.

Jojoba Oil tightens and moisturizes the skin.  One of the best oils that firm, tighten and moisturize the skin to help reduce the   appearance of wrinkles and stretch marks.  Jojoba oil contains natural antioxidants and it is naturally rich in Vitamin E.

Grapeseed Oil is used for skin tightening and anti aging.  The lightest of oils it is an antioxidant and wrinkle fighter packed with Vitamin E.  It repairs stretch marks and scars.  It’s a wonderful moisturizing properties and helps to boost overall health of the skin.  Grapeseed oil has a natural facelift effect.  It also treats stubborn acne and helps to moisturize the skin for getting a youthful looking skin.

Olive Oil is rich in natural antioxidant and anti aging properties that help protect skin from dehydration.  Unique properties allow it to penetrate deeply without clogging pores!

 

To these wonderful oils for skin I add some amazing essential oils! All of these are known for healthy skin benefits!! These are Frankincense, Lavender, Carrot Seed, Cedarwood, and Clary Sage.  Read about these oils below!!

Frankincense acts as an astringent and may diminish age spots, blemishes and  scars. Frankincense may tighten skin as it loosens and sags with age.  The astringent properties of the oil promotes toned skin muscles  too!   Frankincense oil is strong, so begin with one or two drops in two to four ounces  of lotion or cream.

Lavender has nourishing and therapeutic properties. Oily skin benefits from lavender-oil infused products that support healthy skin. The ingredient also works as an astringent and helps in normalizing oil production. Lavender oil’s natural soothing properties. Aggravated skin caused by stress can be calmed by lavender, as it also has stress-relieving properties.

Carrot Seed may be the most underrated essential oil in aromatherapy, but there’s nothing but wellness surrounding this powerful oil and skin support.  It’s soft earthy smell initiates the stress- relieving characteristics in the oil, and when the oil is applied, epidermal cells are stimulated, which keeps wrinkles in check.  Carrot Seed Oil is known for it’s ability to alleviate skin problems. Carrot seed oil haa a natural SPF of 38 and 40.

Cedarwood oils are believed to have many skin care and beauty benefits. Cedar oil is thought to supporting healthy skin. It is also believed to have a balancing effect on both dry and oily skin and hair. It is thought to regulate the secretion of sebum.

Clary Sage oils has  awesome supporting properties  and stimulates blood circulation to the surface of the skin. It balances out sebum production and cleans out clogged pores.  Also being a natural astringent it improves the appearance of skin.  It promotes skin cell regeneration also making it good for fighting  wrinkles.
