Skincare Favorites

Your skin is your largest organ—it MATTERS what you put on it!!! It keeps you from losing water, keeps the bad stuff OUT, and also lets nutrients and other things IN (good and bad). 

We may not be able to turn back time, but we can start where we are and move forward from here.

Skin Type depends on these three factors:
  • The amount of water in our skin- which affects elasticity
  • The amount of oil in our skin - affecting the softness
  • The sensitivity of our skin

  • Normal Skin Type
    • Not too dry, not too oily
    • No or few imperfections
    • Ner severe sensitivity
    • Barely visible pores
    • A radiant complexion

  • Dry Skin Type 
    • Dry, Cracking, peeling, itchy, irritated, and/or inflamed. If it’s really dry it can become rough or scaly - especially on the backs of your arms, hands, arms and legs
      • Almost invisible pores
      • Dull, rough complexion
      • Red patches
      • Skin is less elastic
  • Oily Skin Type
    • Oiliness can change depending on a couple of factors: puberty or other hormonal imbalances, stress, heat, or too much humidity
      • Enlarged pores
      • Dull or shiny skin, thick complexion
      • Blackheads, pimples, or other blemishes
  • Combination Skin Type
    • Skin can be dry or normal in some areas and oily in others (such as the T-zone - nose, forehead, and chin). This is a common skin type
      • Pores look larger than normal because they’re more open
      • Blackheads
      • Shiny Skin
  • Sensitive Skin
    • If your skin is sensitive try to find out what your triggers are so you can avoid them. There are many possible reasons but often it can be in response to particular skin care products. It can show up as:
      • Redness
      • Itching
      • Burning
      • Dryness

Beauty from the inside out

Healthy hair, skin, and nails really start from the inside, and below are a few products that will help you have shiny hair, strong nails, and glowing skin. Most of the products are actually supplements that work from the inside out to support collagen, keratin and hydration - three critical components to healthy hair, nails, and skin! Use these products consistently for 2-3 months straight and see incredible results! 

Whether you're wanting to up your hair & skin game, feeling that postpartum hair and skin slump or needing a little extra boost after being under the weather, we've got you covered. Meet your new beauty BFF- Inner Beauty Collagen! Unlike other collagen powder supplements derived from bovine sources, Young Living's Inner Beauty Collagen features bioavailable type I marine collagen sourced exclusively from sustainable marine sources. Other key ingredients include skin-hydrating ceramides extracted from Japanese peaches, tapioca fiber from plants harvested sustainably in Thailand, and exclusive Vanilla oleoresin.
Mix 1 scoop of Inner Beauty Collagen with 4–8 ounces of water or your favorite hot or cold beverage daily.
Sulfurzyme is a unique combination of MSM (the protein-building compound found in breast milk, fresh fruits and vegetables) and the Ningxia wolfberry that helps with healthy hair, skin, nails and joints. MSM or methylsulfonylmethane is an incredible support tool for our bodies that also boosts both collagen and keratin production.
Collagen and keratin are what give hair strength, durability, and that “healthy” look. Hair, skin, and nail cells all contain large amounts of keratin, which contains sulfur and needs it to stay strong. Boosting collagen and keratin production helps you fight back against damage from the inside out. 
Mix your SulfurZyme into 2-4oz of NingXia Red and take twice daily for best results! Some people choose to double up on the dosing for more acute needs. 
We recommend the powder for best absorption, but the capsules could be used if you prefer. 
Ningxia Red is a powerful antioxidant supplement drink made from wolfberry puree, blueberry, plum, cherry, aronia, pomegranate juices, and essential oils. It is the highest known protection against free radical damage and is rich in ellagic acid, polyphenols, flavonoids, vitamins, and minerals. In addition, it has 18 amino acids, 21 trace minerals, beta-carotene, and vitamins B1, B2, B6, and E. Our bodies need all of these things to promote soft, shiny hair, healthy skin and nails! 
Drink 1−2 ounces 2 times daily. Shake well before use. Best served chilled.
Minerals are an essential component of healthy hair, skin and nails (and health in general!) and are lacking in our diet. Mineral Essence provides essential ionic minerals that your body can quickly and fully absorb for their maximum benefit. In addition to adding Mineral Essence to your daily NingXia Red (great for hair growth and overall health in general), you can actually apply this incredible supplement directly to the scalp to promote hair growth and health. 
Take 5 half-droppers (1 ml each) morning and evening or as needed. Can be added to 4–8 oz. of distilled/purified water or juice before drinking.
To use for hair growth, simply drop Mineral Essence onto the scalp and massage in gently. Let sit for 20-30 minutes, then wash hair with gentle, sulfate-free shampoo.
Mirah Lustrous Hair Oil uses naturally derived ingredients and premium essential oils to improve hair's manageability, smooth frizz, and flyaways, and restore a fresh, healthy, and shiny finish. Made with hair-loving oils such as argan, marula, and Abyssinian—rich in fatty acids and vitamin E—and infused with Geranium, Lavender, and Ylang Ylang premium essential oils, this hair oil will leave your hair looking shiny and sleek with a light floral scent.
Apply a small amount to damp hair, from mid-length to ends, before blow-drying or air drying or smooth through dry hair to eliminate frizz and create a shiny finish.
You can also use this super moisturizing oil on your face as a hydrating overnight serum! 
One of the most powerful things we can do for our health is to balance and support our gut! Many today consider regularly taking a high quality probiotic to be one of the core pieces to a healthy gut which in turn is a key to brain, immune, skin health, and more. Think about it, everything we eat or drink is sent through our digestive system. Every single thing we put into our bodies to give our cells energy passes through this system, so supporting it daily can give us huge benefits!
Take 1 capsule every night following a meal.

skincare isn't just for your face

Protecting our skin and caring for our skin before and after we’ve been in the sunshine is important too! I don’t know about you, but I just want to soak in every second of the warmth of the sun while staying safe and healthy. Here are our top three necessities for safe, healthy fun in the sun! 
Protect tender skin with the power of plants with YL's Mineral Sunscreen. This product is reef safe, free from harsh chemicals, and great for children and adults, so the whole family can enjoy the outdoors worry-free. Mineral Sunscreen is made with non-nano zinc oxide to give you confidence and peace of mind that you are choosing the safest sun protection for yourself, your family, and the planet. A little goes a long way with this water-resistant formula, so it's definitely a staple in our households!
  • Apply liberally to clean, dry skin 15 minutes before sun exposure.
  • Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating.
  • Reapply immediately after towel drying or at least every 2 hours.
Insect Repellent from Young Living is a natural, essential oil-infused alternative to traditional bug repellent that effectively prevents mosquito, flea, and tick bites. This means you and yours can enjoy the outdoors without the pesky pests! This insect repellant is a crowd favorite because it works, it's safe for the whole family (no deet here!), and it's super convenient. We love the liquid, and it is also available in convenient wipes!
  • Dispense into hand and apply evenly over exposed skin.
  • Reapply as needed.
  • You can also transfer this to a continuous spray bottle for easy application! 
The name of this product says it all! Lavaderm is SO soothing to tender skin of any kind - from sunburns, bug bites, rug or trampoline burns, really anything that needs soothing. This spray combines Lavender and Peppermint with carrier oils that spray directly onto the skin - no rubbing required. Using menthol from mint, this spray soothes and cools the skin, providing immediate relief from the effects of outdoor activity.
  • Spray on the affected area up to 4 times daily or as needed for skin needs.
The 7 signs of aging skin are:
  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Harsh skin texture
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dullness
  • Enlarged pores
  • Age Spots
  • Sagging

Top Enemies of the skin are:
  • Sun, pollution, stress, smoking
  • Sudden diet change
  • Processed foods
  • Free radicals
  • Aging stages

What the skin needs:
  • Hydration
  • Vitamins, Minerals
  • Collagen
  • Glucosamine
  • Enzymes
  • Hyaluronic acid

Water is extremely important to skin health. Low hydration is very problematic to your skin. Your skin also needs vitamins, minerals, collagen, glucosamine, enzymes, hyaluronic acid, etc. How do we get these nutrients? From food, from supplements, and from facial care products! 

Skin is like a sponge, it absorbs EVERYTHING. It is especially sensitive to petrochemicals, and petrochemicals absorb in your skin, accumulate in organs/ tissues, and wreak all kinds of havoc. Sadly petrochemicals are in most personal care products.


Did you know that the beauty industry is unregulated and makes over $382 billion/year in the US alone! The problem is that no one is being held responsible for using safe or healthy ingredients. Most products on the market today are filled with toxins that are being absorbed into the body through the skin. Here are just three:


Petrochemicals, also known as crude oil are. “occlusive” or, they create a barrier on your skin and doesn’t allow moisture in. From makeup to moisturizers, a TON of beauty products contain ingredients derived from crude oil. Some petrochemicals are also known carcinogens. 


Parabens are widely used preservatives that prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and yeast in cosmetic products. Sounds good, right? Not so fast, they do more than that. Parabens possess estrogen-mimicking properties that are associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. These chemicals are absorbed through the skin and have been identified in biopsy samples from breast tumors. They can be found in makeup, body washes, deodorants, shampoos, and facial cleansers. You can also find them in food and pharmaceutical products.


This particular category is pretty scary, because what does “fragrance” mean anyway? This term was created to protect a company’s “secret formula.” But as the consumer, you could be putting on a concoction that contains tons of chemicals that are hazardous to your health. According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG) Skin Deep Database, fragrance mixes have been associated with allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress, and potential effects on the reproductive system. It can be found in many products such as perfume, cologne, conditioner, shampoo, body wash, and moisturizers.

Other toxins to avoid:
  • SLS (Sodium lauryl sulfate) - a carcinogen
  • Synthetic Colors - link to ADHD in children
  • Phthalates - endocrine disruptors (banned from toys but not from beauty products)
  • Triclosan - linked to Thyroid issues & is a skin irritant
  • oxybenzone
  • benzonephenone
  • petrolatum
  • talc

Modest estimates have suggested that we are exposed to more than 700,000 different toxic chemicals on a daily basis, and this doesn't include the crazy poisons that GMO companies are pumping into the food supply. According to Global Healing Center, it isn't abnormal to be exposed to 2,100,000 toxins each and every day - and many of them are in the beauty products that we use every day.

Young Living’s Beauty products are formulated without fragrance, gluten, parabens, phthalates, synthetic fragrance, sulfates, petroleum, mineral oil, or any of the thousands of potentially problematic ingredients.
