DIY Moisturzing Oil/Facial Cleanser

Leave a comment

I use this mix as an oil cleanser in the evening. My face feels incredible smooth after! It’s like a mini self spa facial treatment! 

What I do: 

-rinse face/wipe face with wet washcloth & pat dry

-Rub oil on face

-Using hot water wet washcloth

-Place washcloth on face while hot -relax and take some deep breaths (could even put a drop or 2 of  favorite EO [essential oil]) -Once wash cloth cools repeat 2 more times and on 3rd wipe face with cloth (avoid eye area if an EO could still be lingering on washcloth)

My concoction: 

Base oil: 3 types

Apricot kernel oil (great for any skin type, but especially good for normal, dry, and aging skin)*

Sweet almond oil (just an all-around great facial oil)*

Grapeseed oil (great for normal, oily, or acne-prone skin)*

Nurturing oil: Tamanu oil (wonderful for acneic or oily skin, or skin with scars)*

Essential Oil: Lavender (acne, oily, or even dry skin – lavender is healing)*

Equal parts with base oil. Nurturing oil is more concentrated so my tamunu came in small amount so used whole amount. As for the essential oil, a little goes a long way, so just a few drops of that. 

I put it in a little convenient pump dispenser and BAM done 😃

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
