Spring into Beauty

Hey Mommas, It’s easy to forget to pamper ourselves sometimes when the business of motherhood is in full swing. I have found a couple tricks to keeping my skin well hydrated and nourished before bed that I am sharing with ya’ll today. So go ahead a give yourself ten minutes each night to pamper, relax, and get that skin glowing. Today I am sharing my go to products for glowing, healthy skin, and my new favorite all natural make -up I have been trying out. All of these ingredients are 100% organic, and naturally sourced. The oils I use on a daily basis are young livings essential oils that enhance and keep the health of your skin in check.

My favorite oils for the skin and why?

Lavender: Smells amazing while helping to soothe irritated skin and greatly enhance the appearance of your skin.

Orange: A natural face brightener that gives skin a fresh and glowing appearance.

Tea tree: A wonderful oil to use to treat blemishes and enhance the appearance of the skin leaving you with a cool and tingling sensation.

Sacred frankincense: This oil is an all purpose oil that can help decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkle.

Carrot seed: Carrot seed oil is a wonderful oil to place diluted under the eyes to decrease the appearance of baggy eyes/naturally de-puff!

Before I begin my skincare routine at bedtime I apply a natural face wash to clean off  the dirt of the day and makeup. After I have washed and dried my face I than use a scrub alongside my clarisonic brush that helps to exfoliate the dead skin cells leaving the skin smooth and thoroughly washed.

Baking soda scrub:

~1tsp baking soda

~1 drop tea tree oil

~A couple sprinkles of water

Mix into a paste, apply to the skin and use the clarisonic in a circular motion around the face, rinse and towel dry the face. Purchase yours @clarisonic!
