Cleansing, Toning and Moisturising with Essential Oils
There are great benefits to cleansing, toning and moisturising with products containing essential oils.
Adopt a simple and basic routine that can take only 5 minutes of your time in the morning and in the evening. Done regularly using essential oils based products; these are your first three steps towards a healthy body, mind and youthful looking skin.
The key to achieving beautiful skin is to adhere to a practice of using only pure and natural products containing essential oils. You should specially avoid putting on your skin products that contain mineral oils as they are not absorbed by the lower dermal layers of your skin, where your newly formed cells reside.
Essential oils in a natural base lotion or carrier oil easily penetrate these deeper layers, reaching small blood capillaries in the deeper skin layer and rejuvenating the cells from within at their formative stage. Otherwise, your cells can only reproduce themselves from their constant degenerative state; this is due to the function of your body system declining with age.
Cleansing the skin before bedtime removes make up, as well as dirt and grimes that have accumulated on your skin surface during the day. A clean skin surface not only makes you feel easy and relaxed, it also allows your pores to be free and able to breathe, with space for dead cells and waste products to be expelled from your body, preventing the formation of acne, pimples and spots.
When you sleep, your body system works to bring you a new skin surface in the morning. New cells are formed everyday and olderdeceased cells are pushed on to the surface of the skin. They can only be revealed if you clear the layers of dead cells every morning, by cleansing your skin. If you don’t, these expired skin cells stack themselves like tiles on a roof and in time become a wrinkly surface, dull looking and grey.
Toning your skin after cleansing can do wonders for your complexion. You have to avoid commercial toners containing alcohol because they can be irritating to your skin. Pure floral waters will improve your circulation and give your face a healthy glow. When properly prepared with natural ingredients, they can be used as moisturisers for very oily skin, also, help heal infections and blemishes resulting from acne.
Moisturising the skin is essential to maintain an even and smooth complexion. This mainly applies to normal, dry and mature skin types. Using a cream in the morning, after cleansing and toning will provide a protective barrier to prevent the evaporation of moisture keeping your skin surface smooth and plumped, reducing the effects of wrinkles.
An oil for the face enhanced with essential oil in the evening after cleansing and toning will nourish and nurture your skin at cellular level. This is the best part of essential oils application on your skin, as it will help your body system to form perfectly new and rejuvenated cells to be revealed for you in the morning.
Oily skin types would benefit from the application of essential oils on their skin surface after cleansing and toning. Instead of a cream, a blend of essential oils added to floral waters will be of great value to this skin type.
