• Prepping Skin For Colder Weather | Part 2

Wyndmere essential oil black clay face wash DIY

Yesterday we shared our current favorite facial mask, and today we are sharing the rest of our fall beauty routine! Does your skincare routine change with the seasons? Ours sure does…and this season is no exception. 

Our DIY charcoal cleanser is crazy good. Simple. Effective. Smells good…okay…if we don’t have your attention now, we might never get it. To make this knockout cleanser, add 10 drops Bergamot, 10 drops Neroli and 3 drops of Rosemary essential oil into one of our 2 oz glass bottles with a treatment pump. Now add 1 teaspoon activated charcoal, 2 teaspoons of aloe vera, and fill the remainder of the bottle with our unscented foaming soap. Shake gently to combine, and you’re ready to cleanse! Start by splashing a little water on your face, add about three to four pumps of your cleanser to your hand, apply to your face in a circular motion, and rinse well afterward. That should do the job. 

  • Bergamot, Neroli, and Rosemary essential oils have similar properties, which make them great essential oils to use in skincare products. All three are natural cleansers, helping remove impurities and prevent blemishes and other common skin conditions. Neroli, Bergamot, and Rosemary essential oils hydrate the skin, and their astringent properties can improve tone and elasticity for a radiant complexion. Bergamot and Neroli essential oils are great for balancing oil production. They help keep pores clean, while Rosemary essential oil increases circulation, which can help decrease puffiness. Additionally, these regenerative essential oils are all packed full of antioxidants, which may help reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, stretch marks, and blemishes.  
  • Toner? We love our Hydrosols…like a lot. They’re always going to be our favorite go-to when it comes to prepping skin for moisturizer. Right now, we are leaning hard on our Rose Hydrosol - it has the most amazing aroma and makes our skin feel soft and lovely! Spritz on after using the charcoal cleanser above and let air dry.
  • Hydrosols are suitable for sensitive skin. They are gentler than essential oils. Rose hydrosol can be used on both dry and oily skin as it controls and balances the skin’s oil production. It also works as a toner, stimulating circulation to tighten skin and reduce the appearance of pores, wrinkles, and age spots. It further calms inflammation and reduces redness while adding important hydration and softness.

Now the last step…moisturizer. We’ve put together a facial oil this season that we can’t help but share! In a 2 oz dropper bottle, we added Jojoba and Fractionated Coconut oil in a 2 to 1 ratio with 5 drops Frankincense, 10 drops Chamomile German, and 5 drops Lavender essential oil. Check out our post yesterday to learn about the fantastic ability of Frankincense and German Chamomile to improve the appearance and health of your skin. Now add the soothing and cleansing properties of Lavender essential oil to take this facial oil to the next level. We love this combo for its healing actions that help bring balance back when environmental challenges arise! Balance…now that is a word to meditate and leave on. The real goal of any seasonal change.
