Essential Skin Care

Easy Skin Care Routines Using doTERRA

Skin care is essential and making it easy for me is also essential. I teamed up with a group of amazing doTERRA wellness advocates and aromatherapists who shared their natural doTERRA skin care routines with me and now I get to share them with you!

Note: I am a wellness advocate for doTERRA essential oils

Routines can be hard to establish. Let’s just say that and get it out of the way. I am the first one to admit, it takes me awhile to get into a new routine. It might be due to my ADD coupled with my thyroid, which can knock me for a loop. More on that and my health journey in a later post. But, do you know the difference between a routine and a habit?

A habit is an action we do often in a regular and repeated way. Routine is a regular way of doing things in a particular order. A routine is made of several habits. The main difference between habit and routine is that habit is a recurrent, often unconscious action whereas routine is a set of habits. How’s that for a breakdown 101. With that said, let’s move on as I share some really, really, really GOOD skin care routines.

1. Know Your Skin and Product Likes

Educating yourself on what your skin type is and what products are out on the market is super duper important. I think there are a kajillion skin care lines out there. The older I get the more important my skin care products have become. I am going to keep it plain, with natural, organic ingredients and simple, with simple applications. Keep your products plain and simple. Well, that was easy right? This is why I use doTERRA’s skin care line. Plain and simple.

Knowing if you have dry skin, oily skin, or both is pretty easy to figure out and I am sure that you know your skin type. Mine is a mix. Some areas are oily and some are as dry as a desert. I have to make sure that I pay close attention to my skin because my skin has probs. I need something for my puffy eyes, my sunspots, women acne, oily and dry spots. That’s a lot of probs to take care of. My friends also have different probs due to things going on in their systems. I’m sure you do to!

2. Mix and Match to Find Your Skin’s Rhythm

doTERRA has skin enriching products, so you really need to try out what works for your skin. My wellness advocate friends mix and match their products. Some use just one or two, while others blend a bunch. Use what works for you! You can’t go wrong when using doTERRA because it is all natural. Here are just a few of their products…

Verage Skin Care Collection includes~Verage Cleanser, Verage Toner, Immortelle Hydrating Serum and Moisturizer

New Formula Line! Anti-Aging~Facial Cleanser, Invigorating Scrub, Pore Reducing Toner, Brightening Gel, Tightening Serum, Anti-Aging Eye Cream, Ant-Aging Moisturizer, Hydrating Cream, Immortelle Anti-Aging Blend

Essential Oils- Use them. You can make your own blends and take what works for you. There are so many oils that are good for your skin and you just need to do your research for your own skin. More of my favorite oils below!

3. Maintain the Basics

Skin care routines can be different every day. Skin is important. It’s our largest organ and we need to take care of it. Beauty comes from the inside out and we want to look and feel our best! Skin care routines can change depending on what season you’re in and what time of the month it is.

4. Target Your Specific Concerns

After you have gotten started with your doTERRA wholesale account, {Get it here and do that first, then you can start your wellness skincare routine with the products I have mentioned and will refer to. } choose the products that will target your skin concerns. Specific concerns may be dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles, dull skin and pores, dehydrated skin, puffy eyes, dark circles…the list goes on and on. You can start with some of the blends and oils that my friends LOVE.

* Dark Spots

doTERRA anti-aging brightening gel-ginger root extract, Juniper Berry, Melissa, and Bergamont in a vitamin C base

*Loose Skin

doTERRA’s anti-aging tightening serum- Frankincense, Sandalwood, and Myrrh

*Dull Skin and Pores

doTERRA anti-aging pore reducing toner-Lavender, Ylang Ylang, and German Chamomile

*Dark Circles and Puffy Eyes

doTERRA’s anti-aging Eye Cream- store it in a cool place and use that roller ball on the top to sooth the puffy eyes in the morning while the tube lets the cream soothe and rejuvenate the skin

Follow the Anti-Aging product line with your skin routines.

Use geranium oil just for acne

Mix immortelle with yarrow pom. It’s moisturizing and amazingly rich!

HD Clear for that time of the month with geranium and tea tree oil

Dark spots- use frankincense and copaiba oils- a few drops on a cloth and gently rub into your skin
