Explains all about the Body Unburdened Beauty Blends and what makes this particular Beauty Blend so special
Different informational cards to correspond with the three different Beauty Blends and their ingredients
Perfect for gift-giving!
Body Unburdened Beauty Blends nourish and protect your skin with nature’s best moisturizer: plant oils.
No, oil will not clog your pores like you’ve always been told! In fact, your skin loves oil (yes, even your already oily skin — see FAQs below for more info)!
These particular oils keep pores clear while also feeding your skin with vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, keeping it healthy and resilient. Essential oils are added to provide additional benefits, like fighting bacteria, calming inflamed skin, and improving elasticity.
These plant oils and essential oils have been used for their skin-healing properties in herbal medicine and traditional skincare for centuries. Healthy Skin = Beautiful Skin!
A: No! Now I know you’ve been told time and time again to avoid oil at all costs in absolutely all your skincare products. But this is a crying shame!
Because nutrient-rich oils are one of the best ways to nourish and protect your skin.
In fact, your skin often produces more oil to compensate for harsh, drying products, whereas applying the right oils on your skin makes your skin happy and stop working-overtime (i.e. produce less oil!).
A: Again, no! You know the whole “like dissolves like” principle? Well zits are essentially dead skin cells and your skin’s natural sebum (the skin cells block the pore and cause the oil to backup). What is going to dissolve this oily mess little mess in your pore? Water? Nope – water and oil don’t mix. Oil? Yes! Oil dissolves oil.
So applying the proper oils to your face will help to break up clogged pores and keep them clear.
Even more importantly, the primary oils in Beauty Blend No.2 are rich in a certain type of fatty acid called linoleic acid. Studies have found that the sebum of acne-prone individuals tends to be deficient linoleic acid, and that topical application of linoleic acid can help reduce breakouts. So Beauty Blend No.2 was designed to help bring acne-prone skin back to a state of balance i.e. it’s happy place.
As an added benefit, the oils in Beauty Blend No.2 naturally combat blemish-causing bacteria and heal current blemishes quickly.
A: Again, putting oil on you skin will not make your skin more oily. In fact, it helps bring balance to the skin’s own oil production.
Plus with all of the other benefits why would you NOT want to apply oil to your skin!? Antioxidants, minerals, nourishing fatty acids… so much to love!
A: There are 2 ways to use the Beauty Blends:
Just like any other moisturizer (my personal preferred method)… but better! After washing your face, apply 4-10 drops (more liberally at night and sparingly in the morning), gently massaging it into your skin for at least 20 seconds, especially concentrating on areas with clogged pores.
Use the Beauty Blends to wash your face as with the oil cleansing method.
A: The oils used in the Beauty Blends are extremely nourishing to your skin and should soothe rather than cause irritation.
But everyone’s body and skin is different, and some individuals may react to one or more of the ingredients in the Beauty Blends. So to be on the safe side, be sure to do a patch test of the Beauty Blend on your inner forearm before applying to your face. Should you experience a reaction, wash the Blend off your skin using a gentle cleanser.
