Face Care: You made the commitment, now you want to know what to do.
Posted: October 19, 2013
You bought our natural products. Now you are in need of information on what to do and what to expect. I want to answer your questions. Once you start using our products, your skin may continue breaking out. This happens because, with the essential oil support, your skin is throwing out the toxins from within your skin. It may take 7-25 days before you start seeing fantastic improvement. The time depends on how toxic your skin is now. In fact, you may seem to be allergic to the products the first few times you use them. This is probably toxins coming out. CLEANSING--If you wear makeup, you will need to use the Daily Cleanser, Green Tea Cleanser or the Just Clean Cleanser to help remove makeup. Dampen skin and a soft cloth. Apply a small amount of cleanser to hand. Using fingers, gently massage cleanser onto face. Your goal is to loosen your makeup. Rinse face with warm water. Take cloth and gently remove any makeup left behind. Rinse face again. With practice, you will get good at removing your makeup. Do not pull or stretch your skin while cleansing. TONER--If using the Daily Cleanser, you may not need to use the toner every time. Find the routine that works best for your skin. If, like me, you don't wear makeup, the Toner on a small cloth (washable and reusable), cotton pad or cotton balls, may be all you need to remove the daily dose of pollution. Using one of the Toners after the Cleanser will help to remove anything left and seal pores. BLEMISH STICK/ACNE HEALING GEL--Next, use the Blemish stick on tender spots or eruptions. If you have Acne or lots of problem areas; use the Acne Healing Gel to get them under control. Many women are using the Acne Gel to control those hormonal cystic eruptions that come every month. When using the Acne Healing Gel; do not put the Forever Young Face Oil or Cream over the area. The Gel is soothing and healing. However, use the Oil or Cream on the dry areas of your face; especially eye area and upper lip. Again, you do not want to pull or stretch the skin. FOREVER YOUNG FACE OIL--The Forever Young Face Oil is for areas of the skin that show the most damage from age, sun, wind. Definitely use it on the whole eye area, gently and carefully. You do not want to stretch or pull the skin. This is an intensive treatment that will show amazing results. The oils will absorb into your skin to help it repair itself. The oils will blur the eye if it gets in it. If your skin is not prone to breakouts, use the oil over the entire face. FOREVER YOUNG FACE CREAM--The Forever Young Face Cream--this works great under makeup to protect the skin during the day. The zinc oxide provides UV protection. I am a firm believer in the power of sunlight. We need the vitamin D from sunlight. Just do not overexpose skin. You will have more energy and feel better. To prevent your skin from looking dry, dull, old it is important to use either the Face Cream or Face Oil at least 2 times a day. If I have the opportunity, I will rinse my face and apply more Face Cream...especially if I have been in the sun, or a windy, dusty, or dry environment. FACIAL SCRUB--The Facial Scrub should only be used 1-2 times per week. Unless you are aggressively attacking the acne areas. The Facial Scrubs can cause temporary worsening of the acne. This is a product you can keep in the shower to utilize when your skin is warm and wet. It is good for hands, neck, arms to help get rid of dry, clogged skin. EXFOLIATING FACE SERUM--If you try the Exfoliating Face Serum: This is a "spa strength" treatment. It will quickly help remove the dry, dead skin layer. The Exfoliating Face Serum can sting. Usually it happens after 5-10 minutes of it on your skin. This shows that it has made it through damaged skin. Rinse off when you feel the sting. It will leave the skin temporarily red. Use the Forever Young Face Oil afterwards to speed new, softer skin production. Use no more than 1 time per week. The product requires caution, but can yield great results for doughy, dull complexions.
