When we use chemical-laden personal care products, the chemicals become imbedded in our tissues where they become a storage place for toxins and xenoestrogens (the cancer-causing estrogens).  Because everything that we put on our skin is absorbed into the body, it is important that you not put anything on your skin that you would not put into your mouth.  After all, it becomes a part of YOU . . .

Young Living essential oils are detoxifying for the body as the oils work with the body to eliminate anything that causes imbalances.  Because the skin is the largest organ of elimination in the body, some people may develop rashes as the toxins that are already embedded in the tissue seek the fastest exit.  If we then apply more chemical products to the skin, we are adding more toxins which  must be eliminated.

The Young Living essential oils do not cause harmful chemicals to be deposited into the tissues because there are no harmful chemical in the products.  There may already be chemicals in the tissues from the personal care products previously used that contained chemicals.

Have you tried Young Living’s ART Skin Care?  I have been using it since it came out in 2003 or 2004.  It consists of the Gentle Foaming Cleanser, The Day Activator, and the Night Reconstructor.  There is also the Sandalwood Purifying Toner which can be used after the Cleanser if desired.

In June 2012, new products were added to the line – products which work with the basic set and which contain orchid petals along with many essential oils.  ART Renewal Serum is used daily, morning and evening, after cleansing.  ART Beauty Masque can be used 3-4 times (or more) each week.  (More mature skin responds quite well to frequent use initially and then less for maintenance.)  ART Crème Masque comes in a jar and contains Vitamin C for its antioxidant properties.  The Creme Masque can be used as often as desired and even left on the face – or any skin of the body –  all night.

I am finding that I love using the ART Crème Masque and after 45 minutes, I apply the Renewal Serum, the Night Reconstructor, and the Wolfberry Eye Crème right over it and leave everything on the skin all night every night.  I feel I can see a difference in the wrinkles and elasticity of the skin.  Right now I have the ART Beauty Masque on my face and will later use the Serum, Night Activator, a touch of Sandalwood Moisture Creme or Boswellia Wrinkle Creme, and the Wolfberry Eye Creme . . . and awaken with my skin rejuvenated!
