2 Main Things Sabotaging Your Face and Skin
I discovered that Facial Cleansers and Toners are preventing you from having your best skin. It not only shocked me – but also ticked me off!
Here are the 2 main reasons why commercial skin care cleansers and toners are preventing you from having your best looking skin:
1) Harsh Ingredients Strip the Skin
Most commercial skin care products remove all of the oil from your skin, leaving it to try and repair itself by replacing by the natural oil that was stripped away. This starts a cycle of having tight and dry skin which is then followed by an oil slick.
Very often, commercial skin care products are highly-scented which is one of the top skin irritants. Watch out for the so-called “unscented” products, because they too will usually contain some sort of fragrance. Check the labels carefully and see for yourself.
Include Internal Clarifying of Your Skin
Since the aim of this article is to help you achieve your most beautiful skin, I can’t ignore this very important factor – treating your skin from the inside.
Even if you don’t have the best diet in the world, drinking enough water can make a world of difference. This single factor is an absolute must!
It really is super essential that you hydrate and drink enough water to moisturize and cleanse your skin from the inside.
Water will help to release and literally wash out the toxins from your body so they flush from your system when you go to the washroom. This will lessen the need for your skin to push the toxins out through your pores of your skin.
Stick to drinking plain old H2O as much as possible. You can add a squeeze of lemon or lime, and even float some slices of cucumber to enhance your water, but stay away from adding sugar or artificially flavored additives
Now, back to the main point of this article…
What To Use To Save Your Skin
Dump out the lotions and potions you’ve spent a fortune on (sorry) and replace them with a healing, soothing oil.
The basic concept of this skin care and cleansing method is that the oil used to massage into your skin will dissolve the oil that has hardened and plugged your pores with impurities.
I know you are probably shaking your heads “no” right now since this method may seem counter-intuitive, but basic chemistry supports that oil dissolves oil.
So again – toss out all any special cleansers, makeup removers, overnight moisturizers, toners, night lotions… etc… because oil cleansing replaces them all.
Certain blends of oil are great for problem skin because they help break down and melt away the make-up and grime on our skin without stripping it.
Special Qualities of Emu Oil
Emu Oil was discovered and used ages ago by the early Aboriginal people of Australia. Today, it is widely used for relieving cracked skin and dry lips, and to sooth skin irritations like eczema, bug-bites/stings, psoriasis and sunburns.
According to scientific studies, Emu Oil does in fact have unique healing, moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties. Known for its natural ability to deeply soften skin and improve skin hydration and elasticity in the long-term, pure Emu Oil is quick to permeate the skin. It’s ideal to use for the treatment of arthritis, back pain, bruises, scrapes, lacerations, scars, skin rashes, burns and other skin ailments
Emu Oil has also been shown to reduce the depth and length of fine lines and wrinkles. Because it is natural, Emu oil is especially beneficial for face treatments as a non-toxic, hypo-allergenic, gentle skin treatment and it does not clog your pores.
It is also very effective in reducing the pain from burns, quickly healing all types of them including sunburn, as well as 1st & 2nd degree burns.
Emu Oil is a potent anti-inflammatory with a similar effect to ibuprofen, but without the negative side-effects frequently common with a traditional anti-inflammatory.
