I love makeup as much as the next girl, but it only looks best when your skin is glowing and healthy. I’ve been obsessed with healthy skin since I was a teenager (I actually didn’t get my first pimple until my midtwenties!). So what products do I swear by? I’m addicted to essential oils and European pharmacy products. I’ll mix up my own concoction before I see an aesthetician! Check out my techniques:
- Frankincense Essential Oil: This is the must-have skin-care product for everyone and anyone. I recently burned my face, and the oil cleared it up in a few days with no scarring. We all know how crazed people are for face oils, and a good one should have frankincense in it. Since my skin is prone to being oily, I mix it with my next fave…
- Melaleuca Essential Oil: This is more commonly known as tea tree oil. Remember how the father in My Big Fat Greek Wedding used Windex to cure everything? This is my Windex. When I travel, it’s a must in my carry-on. I believe it cures everything—that random bite in the African jungle to a minor breakout. I use it often, and mix it with coconut oil (fractionated is an amazing carrier oil) and frankincense in the winter for my face oil.
- Azure Naturals Emu Oil: Need a cure for chronically dry skin? Found it! During the winter nights I mix it with Lavender, Peppermint, and Melaleuca oils. Not only does it smell amazing, it helps my skin embrace its proper natural glow!
