Olive oil removes make up, is a great lubricant and as u already know is very healthy and useful for cooking.

I use the pixi by petra double cleanse which is an solid oil followed by cream cleanser. It leaves my skin feeling clean w/o feeling too dry. I follow up with a skin softening solution by estee lauder—- I am new to this product, so I really don’t have much of an opinion just yet. For moisturizer I use Kopari coconut face cream along with estee lauder rejuvenate eye cream. I also have some drops from clarins that you are supposed to add to your moisturizer to revive your skin when you haven’t had much sleep, but I honestly can’t tell if they work or not.

Coconut oil is my after shower go to.  On my face I use baobab oil mixed with a couple of drops of bergamot, clary sage, and geranium.  Compared to others I know in the same age group (60’s), my skin is so much plumper, glowing and healthy looking.  They don’t believe in oils and I can’t convince them that oils do not clog but enhance!

Oils, oils, beautiful oils! Let me first say that growing up i was pretty anti oil because i thought it was bad for my breakout prone skin.
How very wrong i was! I have done a 180 and use oils daily and other natural products. My favorite is after shower when we are ready to recieve. Jojoba is my hands down favorite for both face and body. It absorbs so well and feels natural and non greasy and doesn’t break me out. Some oils will break my face out. I love mixing my jojaba with some raw shea butter in my hands, throwing a drop of essential oil and giving myself some massage aromatherapy. Essential oils not only smell good but alot if them are great for skin and or muscles. Lavender is good for both! I recently discovered Frankincense and Cedarwood my face also loves! I can use most oils on my body but my face can be more sensitive.
Also after shower i massage my feet, calves and knees with my homemade cannabis oil to relieve pain. I hope you guys will try some of these ideas bc they have been game changers for me. In fact, i think it’s shower time now!

I’ve used Oil of Olay since I was 16. The moisturizer was good for hands too back then.

Always go to bed with a clean face.  Never fall asleep with make-up on!

Coconut oil is an exelent base. Mixes with anything. Melt rate. Awesome.

I love dry brushing! I then hop in the shower and wash up then when I get out of the shower, I put on some moisturizer mixed with essential oils.
