Hi I just wanted to share a little bit with those who find themselves in a similar situation as I was a few years ago and would like a quik fix to their problem skin.
After I had the first of our 2 sons 5 years ago my skin seemed to not be as supple soft and nice as before.
Doctor's just attributed it to pregnancy and so on and told me it should get better.
It did not. I had blemishes and blemishes and basically oily nasty skin on my face no matter what I used or how much I washed it it was just ugly to me.
Me with ugly skin? I just could not understand this as I was a Mary Kay Beauty Consultant for years and then an Arbonne skin care consultant for years before I took schooling in Natural products and discovered a whole new world opened to me.
After the children were born and our second one who is now 3 years old was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and lots of other skin issues came along for him I took classes to find natural solutions for him as it seemed whatever he ate would make him have the nastiest of rashes and people would comment so rudely about our son or his skin rash embarrassing us to no end.
So I discovered a Japanese line of products called DHC (you can find it inexpensively on ebay) that works very well for my skin but then it seemed that though these products worked the moisturizer was either too little or not enough for me for some reason.
Then because I still would get some blemishes I switched to an amazing Detox soap that is all natural and wonderful! I cannot say enough about this soap. It is Black Seed Soap from Africa. The soap is black and sometimes it smells less than perfect but there are some Black soap that smell wonderful and I have found a lady near our home who actually makes it and sells it and it smells so delicious I sometimes think you could eat it! This soap is so amazing! It is wonderful for the skin and you can use it on your whole body. It clears up mens little shave rash or bumps they sometimes get and that rash we women get during swimsuit season along our panty bathing suit line. It is clariying and toning to our skin and is so soft and natural.
Please note if you have bad acne then I would suggest you use either this Black seed soap or Dettol soap which is truly amazing for any sort of skin issue. It can be found on ebay too inexpensively. Dettol is also available in Antiseptic liquid from ebay as well and you can just add 8-10 drops to your favor liquid soap if you prefer this method.
So now you know what to use for step number 1. Black Seed or Black Soap.. you can buy it inexpensively on ebay too.
Now Step number 2. is toning especially if you want your large pores to be smaller and close.
I use something from SheaTerra Organics called Morroccan Rose water that is so good for your skin. It makes the pores smaller, tightens and tones the skin and smells so luxurious! It is not drying even to oily skin. It keeps your skin hydrated and wonderful feeling just not tingling like Sea Breeze does. Though I like that feeling I find sometimes like at night when the weather like now has not quite changed to hot but is still cool out at night time that this Morroccan Rose Water provides the hydration I need for my skin. During the summer months I still may use the Sea Breeze that I have come to depend on to keep the oil at bay in my T zone (forehead, nose and cheeks areas).
Sometimes you can find this on ebay
We also use the SheaTerra Really Raw Shea Butter for our feet to make them sooooo Soft and supple by putting the Shea butter on them at night and then socks and sleeping like this and then in the morning you awaken to the softest sexiest feet around!
The Really Raw Shea Butter is a staple in our home and we use it for all kinds of little ouchies the boys may get as it has wonderful healing qualities unlike other shea butter.
We also LOVE the Rainforest scent SheaTerra Organics Shea Butter too.
And your final step for the softest skin around is:
Step 3. I use something called Japanese Essence of White Rice. It is an amazing product!
There is one seller on ebay who I buy from and noone else has it here in the USA as I have scoured all of our Japanese markets looking for it from NY to LA. Noone has this here yet!
This product is an all natural miracle beauty solution that is all the rage!
Visit a traditional Sake Brewing plant and you will find the workers with extraordinarily supple, soft, smooth and youthful hands though they have to use their hands to stringent work standards!
Even the elderly folks with wrinkles all over their faces had the soft silky smooth hands of a young child. No kidding!
This product Japanese Essence of White Rice Moisturizer or Lotion has been used for Generations to smooth, Soften and beautify the skin and complexion.
When used regular the results are clear soft supple smooth skin fortified with ceramides found in white rice...which is how they make sake. Users will often notice your skin is smoother more supple and feels so luxurious within moments of applying the moisturizer. It is not a heavy lotion at all. I find it very very light and absorbs really well and fast into my skin.
I was initially worried that it might make my skin oily and cause problems for me as is the case most times when I try something new but this is absolutely the best product I have ever tried hands down!
It absorbs so easy and fast and smells good too. My skin looks radiant, soft and smooth feeling and it is not greasy or with that greasy after feeling at all though it does have ceramides in it.
Comes in a nice 200ml size bottle too. It absorbs easily to leave your skin looking radiant, supple & smooth feeling. Non greasy & easy to apply. This product comes from Japan.
I also do a Face mask with Manuka Honey once a week to detox and clarify my skin and deep clean my pores. With this Manuka Honey you just take a small amount and slather it on your face and leave it while you lie back and take a 10 minute rest or enjoy a magazine. Then in 10 minutes you would take a soft cloth and some very warm NOT Hot water from the tap and rinse it away. I try to put my Manuka Honey mask on and then take my shower and let the hot steam from the shower open my pores for more cleaning and clarifying and then I wash it off in the shower with the running water and continue with my shower then washing my face with the Black Seed Soap mentioned in step one, followed by the toning Morroccan Rose Water and then this Japanese Essence of White Rice.
The Japanese Essence of White Rice moisturizer is not expensive at all and even if it were I would pay it as my skin has never looked or felt better than this.
If I happen to get a blemish on my face or anywhere I follow the steps above and sometimes treat it with Lauren Hutton Tamanu Oil you can get on ebay sometimes. It works great for all sorts of skin problems and ouchies too!
Just wanted to share my secret to young beautiful skin and hands and hope you enjoy! Thank you for allowing me the opportunity!
