Determine your skin type
A mixture for every skin type, including normal skin. You might be wondering what “normal skin” is. Normal skin generally feels soft, supple and elastic. It has a nicely even, matte sheen and its pores are visible, but not enlarged. Normal skin has a healthy blood circulation and a well-balanced fat to moisture ratio. Due to the influence of the weather, the ageing process, and not least of all diet and atmospheric pollution, your skin still requires the right daily care to keep it radiant and well nourished.
Your own daily skin care
Of course, you can try all sorts of store-bought, often expensive products, which might disrupt the balance of your skin, or possibly even worse. A safer and more enjoyable way to look after your skin is to use the recipe below to make your own daily skin care product. Experiment and discover. Create your own quality oil mixture to keep your skin healthy and radiant.
The recipe below shows you how to make your own essential oil mixture, suitable for every skin type, including normal skin:
# 20 ml almond oil: Almond oil is a soothing, nourishing oil that is suitable for all skin types. This oil is very rich in essential fatty acids, and supports the skin’s natural hydration.
# 2 drops of mandarin oil: Mandarin oil has a strong soothing and hydrating effect.
# 2 drops of lavender oil: Lavender oil has a calming and protective effect.
Preparation of your own essential oil mix:
1. Pour the base oil into a bowl or dish. Make sure it is clean to ensure good hygiene. Use a ceramic or glass dish, not a plastic one since essential oils can affect plastic. An even better choice is to purchase and use a dark glass bottle with a dropper or a pipette, for more accurate dosage.
2. Mix the essential oils together with the base oil using a clean spoon. 20 ml equals about 4 teaspoons.
After gently cleansing your face each morning and evening, gently massage a few drops of the oil mixture into your skin. Apply extra if needed. Be mindful – the less the oil comes into contact with your hands, or is exposed to the air, the better. This will benefit the quality of the oil and is much more hygienic.
