Since posting my video on my daily essential oil routine, I’ve gotten a lot of requests to post my skin care regimen specifically. First, let me say that problem skin is a largely internal issue. It is a reflection of what’s happening in your gut. If you have leaky gut, candida or an unhealthy diet in general, that is likely the root cause of your pimples, blemishes, blackheads, or any skin related issue and needs to be dealt with.
I personally have been blessed with bad skin. I developed severe acne in fourth grade that took me over ten years to clear through diet and my DIY products, which I now make and sell through my store, Ancestral Organics. With every $50 order, I’ll send you four weeks worth of meal plans to help combat acne from the inside out.
- Because the face doesn’t get dirty while sleeping, I just rinse with water and wipe off any excess oil with a towel. This ensures I’m not overdoing the skincare products, which most people are.
- I then use this toner on my skin, which tightens pores and balances the skin’s pH.
- I follow it all up with this moisturizer. A little bit goes a long way, so I only use a small amount, which keeps my skin hydrated and keeps my acne at bay.
- Jane Iredale for foundation, blush, and bronzer
- Physicians Formula brow pencil to fill in eyebrows
- Bare Minerals mascara
- Every night, I oil cleanse. Oil cleansing is amazing for all skin types. Oil cleansing is great because of the fact that it hydrates the face but also reduces oil. So many people overproduce oil because we’re always washing it off with face wash. So I rub this oil into my skin for two minutes. I then run hot water over a washcloth, wring it out and steam my face. Then I wipe everything off, including my eye makeup.
- Once again, I tone my skin by spraying 3-4 spritzes of this all over.
- I moisturize with this.
- I apply this essential oil blend to my fine lines around my eyes and on old acne scars.
- no vegetable oils
- tons of healthy fats – grass-fed butter, tallow, coconut oil, olive oil, avocados, etc
- lots of veggies
- minimal fruits
- pastured/raw/grass-fed dairy (small amount)
- focus on fermented foods
- wild seafood, pastured poultry, grass-fed meat
