Skin Care for your Skin Type

All I know is that my skin loves the Young Living skin care products! Dot, dot, not a lot — a little product covers a lot of area and the products last months.

Tip: The Orange Blossom Face Wash is highly concentrated. It takes one drop. Dilute with 7-8 parts water and 2-3 parts Orange Blossom Facial Wash. Store in a foaming soap dispenser. Diluting the product like this will make the bottle last 6+ months.

My personal favorite product is the ART Renewal Serum. When I use it, my makeup blends better and my skin is hydrated. Here’s my personal routine (I have normal skin):

  • Use the ART Creme Masque on Monday, Wednesday, & Friday (about 20 minutes in the morning)
  • Wash with the Orange Blossom (diluted)
  • Exfoliate with the Mint Scrub on Tuesday & Thursday
  • Tone just on days I exfoliate
  • Renewal Serum in the morning
  • ART Light Moisturzier in the morning
  • Boswellia Wrinkle Cream at night

If you are just getting started with a skin care routine, I know it can seem like a lot of steps. Choose 1 or 2 steps to start incorporating into your routine every day and go from there.

You can definitely add essential oils to your current skin care routine and products. Keep in mind that if you use products with synthetic ingredients, the ingredients could react and interfere with the essential oils. Use natural products when possible.

Tip: Check out the Essential Beauty Serum for Dry Skin (item #3782). It’s a blend of essential oils formulated for dry skin. It can also be used on the tips of your hair for light conditioning.

Below are some tips and tricks for different skin types. Of course, adjust them to fit your needs. Be sure to click on the image to enlarge it for a handy printable.
