All natural lotion recipe

Thursday, July 25, 2013

With all of the anti-aging, skin tightening, and cellulite reducing creams on the beauty aisle which one should you choose? None of them! All these products are sure to include ingredients that are toxic, which actually enhances your problem areas. When you quit placing toxins on your skin and replace those products with an all natural remedy, your skin will thank you for it!

This recipe is amazing! First of all yes, it is green. =] However, as you can see from the photo when you spread it, it becomes clear! Second, I can feel my skin soaking up this lotion almost as if it is drinking it and my skin is not left feeling oily, greasy, or stiff. My skin after I use this lotion feels smooth and silky. It is actually hard to explain how awesome this lotion feels and how amazing it is that a lotion actually hydrates my skin! So... for the recipe!

-Final Notes:

-If you are anti-hemp (the hemp oil is legal by the way) you can use grape-seed oil, jojoba oil, or extra virgin olive oil. Although I can't vouch that non-hemp oil in this recipe wouldn't leave your skin feeling greasy.

-For those of you who love hemp oil as much as I do you already know the amazing healing benefits of it, but for those of you who are skeptic let me share some insights:
  • "Hemp oil is high in essential fatty acids. Omega 6 and Omega 3 are two main families of essential fatty acids that have therapeutic effects. Some use hemp oil to increase immune system strength, counteract aging, skin, and diseases such as cardiovascular disease. The essential fatty acids help correct oxygenation and skin hydration. Several studies indicate that the linoleic acid present in hemp oil can slow down the aging process of skin and fight psoriasis, a skin disease associated with dietary deficiency of fatty acids" (1). 
  • "Moisturizing, regenerating and revitalizing, hemp oil is especially useful for dry, tired or dehydrated skin. Skin regeneration and hydration of dry mature skin are enhanced through the use of hemp oil. It increases the skin elasticity and water retention capacity in tissues" (1). 
-I have said this over and over again, but I will say it once more Rose-hip oil is greatly overlooked. Those who know about it's suppressed magical skin healing abilities swear by it, like I do.
"Not only is it rich in vitamin C and high in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids,  known to heal scar tissue, it’s also a great source of retinoic acid, which studies show reduces the appearance of wrinkles and brightens skin. This combination means that it’s particularly good for fine lines and pigmentation problems — two of our most common skin complaints" (2).

-If you do not have any essential oils, or wish to forgo adding them to this lotion, don't worry about it. As long as you use the hemp oil and rose-hip oil you will still see your skin healing, however all essential oils I added promote healing, help to brighten skin, remove age spots, keep bacteria from forming which causes acne, and smell fantastic!

-As far as usage instructions go, typically I put this on before bed or immediately after my shower if its close to my bed time. As with all of my natural recipes you will be surprised at how little you have to apply, you will not have to apply it the same way you do conventional lotion. Try a small amount the first time to see how much you will need and go from there!

-If you are planning to use on your face here are some tips; if you use it on your whole face avoid getting it in your eyes, make sure to keep a check on your pillow case if it seems a little oily change it (or sleep with a microfiber towel over your pillow to absorb any extra oils) or else you may develop acne, and when you apply it feel free to bask in how good it feels on your face... it's really like a breath of fresh air for the face!

-This lotion is safe for your whole body from head to toe, it even helps heal dry skin on your feet!
