How to get your skin looking younger naturally xx

December 7, 2016

Do you feel like your skin needs a boost? I don’t know if it’s just us Cornish outdoor gals but I often feel like my skin is ageing quicker than I would like!!

 

We have some 100% natural, chemical and cruelty free solutions that you can use at home to give your skin some TLC and help reduce the signs of ageing.  Don’t blame us if you get ID’d next time you are buying some bubbles at Tesco!

 

There are so many anti-ageing products on the market but this can be an expensive mine field.

 

If you, like me prefer the more natural, simple approach then aromatherapy is for you.

 

There are a huge range of natural oils that can ensure that the skin is well nourished, protected from environmental damage and suitably moisturised.

 

Aromatherapy oils have a variety of skin care benefits including:

  • stimulating dead skin cell removal

  • stimulating skin cell regeneration

  • assisting with lubrication and moisturising

  • balancing sebum output (natural oil produced by the skin)

  • anti-inflammatory action where the skin is inflamed

  • antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiseptic properties

  • astringent action, helping to close pores.

 

Essential oils can also help us maintain a healthy complexion by being used holistically to improve our physical and mental wellbeing .

 

Oils that are fantastic at improving ageing skin are:

  • Roman chamomile

  • Patchouli

  • Lavender

  • Benzoin

  • Rose

  • Neroli

  • Frankincense

  • Jasmine

  • Vetiver

  • Geranium

  • Sandalwood

 

There are also a number of brilliant carrier oils that are wonderful for ageing skin:

  • Avocado

  • Argan

  • Evening primrose

  • Jajoba

  • Macadamia nut

  • Rosehip

  • Sesame

  • Wheatgerm

 

Check out the following anti-ageing recipes to try at home:

 

*Nourishing Face Mask for Mature Skin*

  • 2 tbsp of plain live full fat yogurt

  • ½ mashed avocado

  • 1tsp runny honey (local if possible)

  • 1sp ground almonds

  • 2 drops each of rose, neroli and frankincense essential oils

 

Mix together and apply to face and neck (avoid eyes). Leave on for 15 mins and rinse off with cold water.

 

*Rejuvenating Facial Massage Oil*

  • 5ml jojoba oil

  • 5ml macadamia nut oil

  • 5ml walnut oil

  • 2 drops each of vetiver, rose and neroil essential oils

  • 3 drops of carrot seed essential oil

 

*Rich Night Cream*

  • 80ml fragrance free organic moisturising cream

  • 2ml red carrot oil

  • 5ml melon seed oil

  • 5ml argan oil

  • 8 drops each of frankincense and geranium essential oils

  • 4 drops of vetiver and neroli essential oils

 

 

If you want a little extra boost for your skin as well as trying this at home, or if quite frankly you can’t be bothered we offer a 100% natural, chemical and cruelty free Cornish Youth Boost Facial in which we use hand made local products from www.bskincare.co.uk. Let’s face it; an hour lying down in a quiet room is likely to make you look younger for a start!!

 

Lots of love and kind regards,

 

Kirst XX
