It’s been awhile since we’ve done a beauty round up, and since skin care is super important to us (particularly as we age), we knew we had to share some of our latest favorites with you all!
High on our list these days is Jojoba Oil. Fittingly, the Jojoba Company makes some great ones. With nothing of the icky stuff that we hate (like chemicals, parabens, fragrances or animal products), these products are all natural and have multiple uses.
You can apply Jojoba as a moisturizer, makeup remover, and a skin soother. We love the original 100% natural, and the newest product, the Ultimate Youth Potion (I mean – it even sounds fantastic, right?!). This potion works to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, and includes a full range of vitamins like A, B, C, D, E, & F and essential fatty acids.
Other great Jojoba Company products include their face masks. For dry skin (and who doesn’t have dry skin if you’re living through a chilly winter like I am?), I’d recommend the botanical hydrating face mask. And for those looking to treat aging issues like hyperpigmentation and other skin changes, the skin refining and brightening face mask is a good choice. The possibilities go on and on.
I like to use the Ultimate Youth Potion during my morning routine, and the original version at night, mixed with a drop of yet another new favorite – Frankincense essential oil. Known for it’s beautifying properties, Frankincense promotes the rejuvenation of skin. There’s a reason the wise men gave this stuff to Jesus – it’s really that great.
Recently, I tried a product on my face that gave me a horrible, painful rash. After a month of dealing with it (and trying just about everything I could to heal it), I finally tried Frankincense. And you know what? The next morning, it was nearly healed. While a tiny bit remains a few days later, the pain is gone, and the rash is on its way out as well.
I’m not just concerned about the skin on my face. That’s why I’ve also been using Acure Organics Firming Body Lotion. It’s no secret that our skin loses its ability to bounce back as we get older, and after having twins, my tummy may never be the same. They use ingredients like organic Argan oil, rosehips, primrose, cranberry, and Cocoa butter to replace moisture and firm back up. I’m hooked!
