For years I have always struggled with skin care and finding the right products for myself. When I was younger I never really took my skincare seriously and would go to the store and buy the newest product out there that would make my skin soft and youthful. I never really took into account the ingredients in those products and what I was exactly putting on my face. Now, I feel at my age I am able to invest in quality products and really invest in what is working for me.
Melaleuca is such a big company here in Idaho and sometimes it feels like you cant escape the hype with some of their products. Guys, I have literally tried everything for my skin and this Melaleuca Clarity System is amazing. It is a system that you can use for acne prone skin.
The first step is the foaming cleanser which you can use to wash your face. I love how foaming this product gets and how much of a clean feeling you can have.
The second step is the toner that can sting at first but feels really great on the skin after.
The third step is the moisturizer featured at the bottom of this post.
The final step is the spot treatment which I LOVE. It comes in an oil or cream form, I prefer the cream version the best because it reacts better to my skin.
Apple Cider Vinegar is one of those good ingredients out there that can do alot for the skin and inside the body. I really enjoy mixing this with the Indian Healing Clay. This healing clay is so great for the face and really takes out all impurities. I use equal parts clay and A.C.V so that it can turn into a paste material. It does sting at first but after a while you get used to it.
Winters in Idaho can be so harsh on the skin for this Virginian girl, so I have to try and get as much moisture from a product that I can. This Shea Moisture Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Overnight Face Oil is so amazing for those dry Winters! I wanted a face oil that was thick but also hydrating and wont stick on my face. I found this one and tried it immediately to find that it sunk so beautifully into my skin.
This Thayers Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Toner is no joke. My skin has totally transformed since using this and I have noticed how much more bouncy and shiny my skin has gotten since using this. Toners are such a transformative part of a skin routine that everyone should incorporate. I do prefer alcohol-free products over the normal ones because my skin reacts more positively to them. This toner comes in Cucumber, Rose Petal and others. I usually spritz this on my face throughout the day in a tiny glass spray bottle that I can easily take with me anywhere.
Body care is equally as important as skin care and so I wanted to share two of my favorites! Again, with Melaleuca but I cannot rave more about their products. This is their popular Renew Lotion with Lavender Essential Oil. I have used many lotions but this one is definitely going to stick. I apply this right after a shower and enjoy the smell along with the thick consistency.
Along with lotion comes lip care for me. I used to put straight up Vaseline on my lips but now that Vaseline has released their Lip Therapy line in several scents I couldn't stop buying them. The size actually lasts a while and this product conditions the lips and gives a great shine.
