Happy New Year best all natural anti-aging wrinkle reducer and line eraser

Happy New Year!!!2015 happynewyear

Can you believe a whole year has whizzed by?! I can barely keep up!

What better way to bring in the new year than with a fresh start for your skin? Feel great from the inside out and let your light shine!

It’s much easier to help those around us when we feel better, so take good care of yourselves…yes, you! Take some time to pamper yourself a bit and you’ll be able to give those you love more of your precious self.

And who doesn’t want a great all natural wrinkle reducer and line eraser?

For those that love pure beauty products free of chemicals, but can’t always afford them, and dream of simple DIY projects….this is for you.

After some research I found a few faves I had to try.

I’ve looked high and low for the best all-natural facial anti-aging moisturizers and wrinkle reducers, and from all the reviews and a few proper articles I’ve come across: this company wins almost every time:

Acure Organics for best all around company. There were some others that were even better,  but their prices were out of this world for more luxury ingredients.

(and no, I have nothing to do with them, nor have I received anything from them).

So without further ado….

Here’s some great products and how to make them:

How to erase or reduce scars, stretchmarks, or keloids with essential oils

The development of scar tissue is our skin’s natural response to an injury, burn, cut, scratch, bite or even acne. Our skin has an amazing ability to rejuvenate, revitalize and restore the skin to its original state by first forming a scab, which usually shrinks and falls off as collagen is forming to strengthen the skin normally within 10 days, but can take up to three months or even a year before it returns to its full strength.

Massage treatments help erase scar tissue too, so by laying a dampened warm towel over the area for a few minutes and then rubbing a few drops of lavender essential oil mixed with about 1/2 oz rosehip seed oil into the scar two or three times a day. Massage also  increases lymph drainage and get things moving to give the essential oils deeper penetration into the skin. Use the warm to hot dampened towel each time.

ALSO….

Vitamin E cream will begin to soften the scar tissue if you apply it twice a day. Mederma gel works best on developing keloids to help the texture, color, tenderness and overall appearance of the scar. It is made from the botanical extracts of onions and allantoin and should be used several times a day. When keloids are in their early development stage, calendula can be used to increase the speed of the healing process and reduce inflammation. Calendula should be used directly on the scar twice a day and it comes in a gel or cream form. Lavender oil applied to the scar a few times per day may stop the keloids’ growth. This oil contains skin-cell-rejuvenating properties.

Any treatments, oils or remedies that contains at least 10 percent mustard-seed oil may help improve keloids’ overall appearance. Improvement is seen after a few weeks of applying such treatments two to three times a day.

Also effective is a mixture of 1 oz. rose hip seed oil, 1 oz. of essential oils of rose and 1 oz. of everlasting, stored in a dark glass bottle. Rub the treatment on keloid scars every day after bathing.
