I don’t know about y’all, but for years I had a hard time finding a facial cleanser that actually had a good effect on my skin. Yes, I’d found some that seemed okay for a few days, but then would come that horrible day when I would wake up to discover that my skin had broken out, and I’d realize that the product I had been using had done more to clog and dry out my skin than to nourish or moisturize it. My mother pointed out that many of these products have harmful chemicals and irritating ingredients in them, so it’s no wonder my skin reacted poorly. But the commercials sure had me convinced.
Speaking of irritating. How about those unhelpful popular make-up commercials? You know, the type where the gorgeous woman with the PERFECT complexion is telling you to buy “Such-and-Such” chemically-laden product, so you can have smooth powder-perfect skin just like her? Um, excuse me, miss airbrushed model, but you probably don’t even use that product. I’m thinking you don’t, since when I tried it, at your recommendation, I found my skin condition worse.
Nobody can (or should) look like that airbrushed model, darling, so get that image out of your head! Let’s go for a real look. Okay, now, moving on… 🙂
I’ve never been really “happy” with my skin. No, I don’t have horrible outbreaks of acne, but I also don’t have the clearest of complexions. For as long as I can remember, or at least since puberty, I suffered from red splotches and frequent breakouts. I had tried everything from Nuetrogena to Beauti Control and Avalon Organics. Though, the organic brand worked better than the others, they still weren’t what I’d hoped for. My skin still broke out, and still felt tight and irritated.
Which brings me to the good news. 🙂 I received as a gift, the ART Skin Care System from Young Living. Wow! I seriously had instant results. The cleanser was so gentle on my skin and it evened out my skin tone beautifully. The moisturizers made my skin feel natural and completely non-greasy! It felt wonderful, and I’m not exaggerating when I say that it was the best facial product I’ve ever used (I wish they had make-up)!
My mom pointed out that it’s because Young Living recognizes the incredible power of essential oils, and uses them in their skin care products. They’ve added frankincense and sandalwood to reinforce DNA renewal and replenish the skin. They also use the legendary wolfberry seed oil, which is known for its superior moisturizing and skin conditioning properties. Add it all together and you have an amazing formula for a truly unique and effective skin care system! I’m hooked.
