As you know I am a pure advocate for skin care, because I absolutely love baring it all and not wearing makeup most days.
I am incredibly lucky that, I don’t have a lot of breakouts or acne spots unless it is that particular time of the month.
Lately I have been trying to make my skin care routine as clean as possible so that I avoid putting harsh chemicals on my skin, because I feel like a lot of our health issues aren’t just reliant on what we put in our body but on it as well.
When it came time to have J we had a long struggle of years of fertility issues, taking clomid, doing IUI’s, IVF in Mexico which all failed and then in 2016 we finally were pregnant after I believe almost 6 years of actively trying with fertility.
I had finally given up and wanted to take a break before we saw doctors again, and then a couple months later found out we were pregnant.
I figured I should start looking at all the things I am putting in my body, having in my environment [airborne, etc.], and using on my body.
You start to evaluate a lot of things in order to pin point what is causing issues in your life, and while a lot of what we put in our body effects us, on occasion what we put especially on our skin can as well.
I haven’t talked much about it on here, but I am a distributor for Young Living Oils and without going into a long rant in this post oils has helped me a lot with emotional, mental, and physical health. I can’t even begin to say enough great things about it.
So a couple of orders ago, I picked up the Young Living Mint Facial Scrub. I absolutely love scrubs because I feel like it helps a lot get rid of things on the surface that face wash doesn’t.
The scrub has this minty refreshing tingly sensation as you apply it and leaves my face incredibly smooth as well, just like a babies butt.
This isn’t something you can get at your local drug store, but through myself or another YL distributor. I went from using St. Ives and I know that this isn’t a brand that I can compare to any other quality skin care line but it worked for me for years and now I have decided to change over to the YL scrub.
It was brought to my attention after a reader saw my IG post on this scrub that, scrubs both in skin care aren’t essentially great for every day use.
I have not done a ton of research on skin care and I am no where near a professional in the matter, I am just stating what I use on my skin that helps me keep my skin free of acne scars, and dead skin cells.
