Here’s why you should try oils for beauty, even if you have oily skin like me.
Beauty Starts on the Inside: CBD Oil
If you feel good on the inside, it shows on the outside.
CBD oil (hemp oil) is all over the internet right now as a wonderful life-enhancing product. It’s been found to improve physical, emotional, and mental health. I completely agree. After using the two bottles of CBD oil I was gifted by Potter ( https://potterhemp.com ), I completely concur with all the hype CBD oil is generating.
Potter states that CBD oil has a multitude of wellness-enhancing abilities from mental health to physical health. CBD oil enhances your overall mood and for me, the effect is immediate. I just suddenly feel better after I drop the uplift liquid from the dropper onto my tongue. My family members concur that this oil works to lighten their mood as well.
It’s a great help for anxiety and depression as well as being good on the gut (IBD, IBS, and SIBO). It’s all-natural and is simple to use, you simply draw up the oil into a dropper and deposit on your tongue and swallow.
Isn’t CBD oil in Cannabis?
Yes. CBD is the prevalent ingredient in cannabis but not the part that gets you high. It’ s the part that makes you feel good, so you can feel safe using it. And it’s quick. For me, I feel an immediate lightening upon consuming the uplift drops.
Potter also sells CBD sleep drops. I’ve found I enjoy a more restful long-lasting uninterrupted sleep when I take the sleep drops before bed. The targeted effect of this liquid will help you sleep well. If you sleep well, you will look and feel good. Simple as that.
Their other products include targeted effects for pain relief and calm. They also sell lotions, gummies, and a stick form of their product.
It’s an all-natural organic hemp. They offer free shipping in the US and Canada. The extra cool thing about this company is that for every sale, a tree is planted. How cool is that! They are taking care of us and taking care of the planet. I like them:)
More Oils for Beauty: Hair and Skin
I get breakouts. Still at my age, which is very disheartening to be fighting both acne and wrinkles being in my forties. Can I get a break here people? Well, yes I can and I’ve just uncovered some interesting facts that have recently made a huge difference in my complexion.
The Truth about oils for beauty: Don’t use coconut oil on acne-prone skin
I was using occasional coconut oil on my facial skin and my hair. Well guess what, coconut oil is not recommended for people with acne-prone skin. I had read that coconut oil does not clog pores, so I was using it. However, I continued to get breakouts.
In my search for help, I found a website called http://Byrdie.com and they cite several dermatologists who say coconut oil does clog pores. While it might be fine for the facial skin of those who don’t suffer any acne, those who are prone to it should not use it. And this includes on your long hair because your hair brushes your face all day long. Once I stopped using any coconut oil, my skin began to clear.
This was a bummer for me because I love coconut oil. It has so many good uses from sealing moisture into the skin, as a makeup remover, and I absolutely the effect coconut oil has on enhancing my natural curls. So I was bummed. I also love making lotions and scented hair treatments using coconut oil ( such as my recipe for Lavender DIY Lotion for Moisturizing Skin and Hair ) so I was sad I could no longer use it.
BUT!!! I can use it on my body.
I found out through trial and error that I could still use coconut oil on my body without any problems, it was just my face and hair that I could not use this awesome oil on. I no longer touch my face if I put coconut oil on my hands as a lotion either. I don’t need to inadvertently add coconut oil to my face from my fingertips so I just keep my hands off my face. I even go as far as using a tissue to itch my face.
Also I have a quick note to add about mineral oil.
The other interesting fact I found out is that mineral oil can also be bad for acne-prone skin and can clog pores. Everyone’s skin is different, however, so test it out, your skin may not breakout with it. I have used mineral oil on my body without any problems. The one I have used and liked is Bio oil, which helps with eliminating scars, protects skin and has anti-aging properties.
Oils for Beauty that Won’t Clog Pores
What do I use instead of coconut oil?
Many oils are great for the skin and won’t clog pores. I’ve had great success using jojoba oil and CBD hemp oil for my skin and hair without it inciting acne flare-ups. And I love the effect it has on enhancing my natural curls and adding shine, just as coconut oil did, so I’m not out anything, it’s all a better beauty regime for me. I’m smiling and happy with clear skin and great hair. It’s a win-win all around!
In my research, I also found out that argan oil and black cumin seed oil also are good for acne-prone skin. I have not used either of these yet, but they are on my list to try. Black cumin seed oil is supposed to help unclog pores so I can’t wait to try this oil out.
I do however adore rosehip seed oil. I’ve been putting it on my face and it feels amazing and makes my skin look and feel so healthy. It’s also got anti-aging properties and can help heal scars. It is a thicker oil so it is not recommended for hair.
Using Oils for Beauty: Making your own lotions
I love making my own lotion because it’s healthier and nontoxic. I use only all-natural ingredients. In making my lotions now, I just use jojoba oil. I haven’t tried using CBD oil for the lotions yet but I will eventually try that out as well.
Here are a few recipes I’ve created and used for lotions and skin scrubs that I make at home. I adore these recipes so I hope you enjoy them as well. And now when I plan to use a lotion for my face or an oil-based concoction as a hair treatment, I just use jojoba oil in place of coconut oil.
