This week Erin lets us in on her favorite skin care products and even gives a DIY recipe for fellow brave crafty souls.
Erin: All my life I’ve been very lucky in that even throughout middle school and high school I was never prone to break outs or acne and I got away with using bar soap on my face. I have recently come to the sad realization that I am becoming an age that requires using products that you cannot purchase at the dollar general and I am going to have to actually start using “grown up” products on my skin to keep it fresh and healthy.
I have a bit of a dry skin problem on my face and I’ve asked my friends for advice and while great advice and much appreciated I’ve found that most often I find I spend the money on a product only to come out looking like someone has burned a layer of my skin off. So I did what any Gen-X girl would do and took to the internet and found that people with my same problem had great results with the Neuteogena Naturals line and were saying to start with just the purifying facial cleanser and follow up with the multivitamin moisturizer so I figured, why not?
Two weeks in and I gotta say my face is feeling great. It soothed the burning from the Cindy Crawford stuff my mom gave me to use that tore my skin literally off my face. It’s great. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has sensitive skin like myself or just has had problems finding a face wash or moisturizer that works for them. I got mine at Walmart so it’s about $3 cheaper than other retailers.
Side note, I was also blessed with eczema on my scalp and hands that tends to flare up when the weather had it’s little hissy fits and can’t decide if it wants to be happy and warm or mean and cold. My mom-mom blessed me with a lot of things but she passed down her skin problems to me haha. BUT, after 20+ years of dermatologists and creams and sleeping with saran wrap around my hands (yeah that was terrible when you’re 12) I have finally found an all natural recipe that works.
I found this on Pinterest and it also works for Psoriasis.
20 g. / 0.7 oz. Shea Butter
15 g. / 0.53 oz. Cocoa Butter
15 g. / 0.53 oz. Sweet Almond Oil
10 g. / 0.35 oz. Castor Oil
5 g. / 0.18 oz. Neem Oil
1/8 tub Vitamin E Oil
(Optional) 5 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
Take small sauce pan put in all oils and butters. Put into a larger sauce pan of boiling water. (Double Boiling method) Place in freezer. Wait 5 minutes slightly runny liquid opaque and add the Neem oil and vitamin E and 5 drops of Lavendar Oil. Use a whisk to mix all the ingredients together then take container of your choice (make sure that it has a tight lid so that nothing can get in to contaminate it.
I have posted a link below to the video tutorial on how to make this healing balm here so you can see for yourself how easy it is. I have made it for myself a few times.
