Chemical-Free Moisturizer For Healthier Skin

woman-with-face-oil

Isn’t it great when something so simple works out much better than something you saw on an infomercial? That’s exactly why we are sharing this amazing chemical-free facial moisturizer with you. People get suckered into buying skincare products, which contain a plethora of chemicals, after seeing “miracle” photos in various advertisements. The reality is that these products can sometimes worsen the condition of your skin.

 

Products that claim to get rid of acne may have chemicals that irritate or dry out the skin. This occasionally causes the skin to produce more oils, resulting in imbalanced pH levels. Additionally, the skin absorbs whatever you put on it. Those chemicals in whatever cream, lotion, cleanser, or moisturizer you use enter the body and can ultimately harm your internal organs.

 

If you are looking to improve the health of your skin, become friends with extra virgin olive oil and castor oil. These help to balance the skin’s oil production on your face and they work to get rid of bacteria and clogged pores. We know it may sound counterintuitive to put more oil on your oily face. The truth is that these oils help dissolve the oils, which are naturally produced on your skin, and they wash away the impurities, helping your face feel moisturized.

 

Because everyone’s skin is different, you may need to experiment with different ratios to find what mixture is best for you. You may need to use more olive oil and less castor oil if you have dryer skin. Start off with small amounts at first so that you aren’t wasting these precious oils! If you have normal skin, the following recipe may be beneficial.

 

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup castor oil
  • small soft washcloth
  • small container for storing oil mixture

Instructions:

  • It is recommended that you only apply this mixture once a day before bed to allow the oils to nurture your skin overnight.
  • Mix the oils together in a glass jar.
  • Pour about one teaspoon of the oil mixture in your hands, rub them together, and apply the mixture all over your face.
  • Take the washcloth and run it under hot water. Place this over your face and leave it on until it becomes cool.
  • Using the washcloth, wipe your face and then rinse the washcloth off.
  • If you feel that your skin is dry, apply a couple drops of olive oil on your skin.
  • Store the mixture in a cool, dry place.

Pro Tip:

  • It may be beneficial to add some essential oils to your oil mixture. Try adding a few drops of lavender or tea tree essential oil.

    Q: When I use the OZ OIL my outer skin is very soft and subtle. However deep down in the skin I feel very itchy. I have been assuming this is the effect of the oil doing its job. After a few weeks I got the feeling that I should try to loofa off the top layers of skin so the under skin could rejuvenate its self. I suppose I am writing because I want to check to make sure that the deep itching truly is a positive healing process before I purchase another bottle. Also to prompt you for any other ideas you might have to help my condition. It is purely beauty based btw I don't have any skin illness.

    A:

    The itching is a natural side effect that a healing crisis is taking place. Keep using the Oxy Oil at your discretion.

    Q: I am a 49 yr. old black female. When I was younger I had severe cystic acne that left me with what the dermatologist calls "ice pick scaring" and enlarged pores. I had 2 full face dermabrasions in my 30s and have been on retina A from then up until now. I have a pretty healthy diet and exercise routine. My Father and a couple of Uncles of mine also had the same type of skin problems, left with the same aftermath. I use French green clay masks which slightly reduce the look of the large pores and a sugar, honey, and lemon scrub (I make it at home) and I use it on my face. I'm not unattractive, but my skin looks rough and dull and pitted on my cheeks and nose. All the doctors talk about scar revision (cutting),laser treatments, chemical peels, and all sorts of invasive surgeries. I don't want to go that route again and I feel bad about the way I look sometimes. Are there ANY suggestions that you can give that will help me?

    A:

    Q: My daughter has eczema that NEVER goes away. I need to do a blood cleanse and cannot find any suitable for her age group. I saw your children?s full body cleanse. Does this include the blood cleanse? Would this be sufficed? I also was wondering if you could recommend anything I can use topically to stop her itching? I am currently using oil of oregano mixed with EVOO at night for the bacteria and a mixture of oils to try to hydrate her skin during the day. I have tried everything and NOTHING works except steroid creams which I do not want to use. Please let me know your recommendations.

    A:

    My son had a very bad case of eczema (scratched so much he bled). He was cured/healed in 6 months. Purchase the Children's Detox and give him the liquids in water or apple juice. For external application, purchase Oz Oil (this is what helped to heal my son's skin inflammation) and rub this on her body a few times during the day. Bathe the child in warm water and sea salt (start of with one box). You can also bathe the child in herbs. Boil some Dherbs Detox Tea (2-4 bags) in a big pot. Let it cool down and pour the contents of the pot into the bath water. Let the child soak in this for about 30 minutes. Your child can heal! I saw a miracle performed with my son so I know eczema like all other diseases can be healed!

    Q: I would like to know, if you have any skin care programs, for women age 50 and over. I am going to try the detox progarm as soon as possible. I truly believe that I am going to be very happy with the results. I am 51 years old, and I want to look and feel my best. I have a lot of belly fat, and that makes me feel uncomfortable, because some people will ask me, if I am pregnant. This seems very strange to me, because my stomach seems to be the main place, where all the fat is building up. I desire to have beauty inside and out. I want to be completely whole. If you have tips for skin care and body care, please let me know. Some people say that I look like I am in my forties, however, if I did not have all of this extra body fat, I could really believe what they are saying.

    A:

    The blood needs to be cleansed in order to enhance your skin and eliminate excess fat.

    We would recommend you perform the Full Body Cleanse which can help improve skin complexion, release weight, and detoxify, purify, rejuvenate, and strengthen the body and all of its eliminative channels.

    We also have a Facial Skin Kit that works to naturally restore the health of skin by helping to remove blemishes, hydrate skin, and even out complexion for resilient skin.

    Q: I would like to know if that was you on the Al Sharpton show, Monday morning. The show is called “keeping it realâ€. My second question is, do you have any products that would help melasma. So many black women and men suffer with this [facial] hyperpigmentation. The only product that I know that really helps is hydroquinone that many women use today to lighten [bleach] their skin tones. I do not want to use it for that purpose; I have a beautiful skin tone. I just need to lighten the pigmentation that has changed my complexion. The darken colorations make me look older than what I am. I see a lot us blacks with this problem. It is unfortunate that the only product that seems to alleviate the problem is not safe. By the way, I do use sunscreen, only on my face; I allow the rest of my skin to get some sun for its great vitamin D benefits. Thanks

    A:

    Work on cleansing your blood, as the skin manifests the condition of the blood. Try our Blood & Lymphatic Formula.

    Q: I start the detox should I keep using this skin lightener that I?m using for the dark spot on my face? Could you please tell me through e-mail because I don?t have a telephone?

    A:

    I would not advise using any chemical(s) during the detox. What you put on your skin is consumed via your skin and into your blood.

    You'd be wise to leave the dark spot alone. It is conveying an inner (emotional/spiritual) message and you are trying to avoid it by covering it up. There's a dark spot in your life you are not FACING which is why the dark spot is on your face.

    Q: I want to find out about skin lightening or evening out my skintone. I am a dark skinned 46 year old black female, I do not use bleaching creams because they are cancerous, and I think that it borders on black female self hatred, But I have uneven, and very dry dark skin color, I would like to get my skin all to one tone, and moist and healthy. Do you have any ideas, or recipes for a natural bleaching cream?

    A:

    Skin tone changes based upon life changes, just as your hands change based upon life changes. Live healthy, holistic, and everything will come back into balance. You see, evidently you did something for the skin to become uneven, after all, the skin was not always uneven. Something happened based upon what was going on in your life, and things you were doing and thinking. Go back to that period and reflect and start from there. Do the reverse and the healing will begin.

    Q: During my phone consultation, I inquired about shaving creams other than the magic shave that I had been using for years. I tried the Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap as well as the Alba shaving cream. I have tried them both, and I use the hydrogen peroxide after I shave. But after a couple of days of smooth butter skin, my face becomes slightly irritated and small bumps form around the area where a goatee would grow. I know that I have some skin issues as of late, but don't know what. I even put a good amount of the OZ OIL on my face after I use the hydrogen peroxide. Should I not expect any constant smooth shaves until I go through the FULL BODY DETOX (FBD)?

    A:

    Whether you know it not but you answered your own question and correctly so. Yes, give the FULL BODY DETOX a try!

    Q: Are there any herbs or remedies for Skin moles? My family has them on there face, neck, arm, and legs. Can you pull them off? Some people say if you do that, you will bleed for hours. Is this true?

    A:

    YOU CAN HEAL FROM MOLES! CONSIDER THE Following: the following is a healing account of a mole by my good and dear friend Paris Chatman. This is my story and how I healed my face of my mole. I developed a small growth in 1997 on the left side of my face. Over the years it slowly increased in size and until recently it reached 0.25 inches. I had been on and off a healthy diet for over ten years. I could not ever commit to 100% good health, which I felt deep down, was the root cause of why my pathologies either remained or kept returning. Once this mole reached 0.25 inches I knew that it was time to really make a committed choice regarding my eating habits. I was convinced that it was my eating habits and thinking life style that contributed to the growth of this mole. It was only getting bigger which really concerned me. I took one final measurement and made the intent to eat an organic vegan diet, which would be mostly raw (not exclusively). I then purchased several bottles of BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA and the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA. I knew that my skin pathologies were a result of toxic blood and the toxic blood was a result of a toxic diet. So just having made the intent alone caused a change in my body chemistry. I do not have the medical explanations for what happened. All I can say is the day after I measured my mole and made the committed intent to live a healthy mental & physical lifestyle, the mole began to crack at one of the edges. This was just the next day. Then I realized that my body & mind are incredibly powerful...more than I ever realized. I thought that if I took the herbs that I purchased then I would help my body on the inside cleanses the blood and the end result would be a beautiful healed complexion. I took 5 capsules of the BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA and 3 capsules of the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA daily. Then I broke open 5 capsules of the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA and put the herbs in a small dish and mixed it with distilled water (about three tablespoons). I then put this mixture in the base of my facial steamer. I bought this facial steamer from savon's for only $20.00 many years ago and this was the best use I got out of it ever! I put a towel over my head and allowed the steamer to infuse the herb mixture into my skin/mole directly. Once I was done, I lightly patted my face dry and applied a paste I concocted with OZ OIL and the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA. To make the paste, I broke open another 5 capsules of the HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA and put the powder in a small dish and added 1/2 teaspoon of the OZ OIL...just enough to create a paste. I applied the paste directly on the mole. I felt a sensation in the mole area, which went away after a few minutes. The next morning I washed my face using a chemical free, fragrance free, soap and once I patted my face dry, I noticed the mole had begun to crack more around the edges and the edges that cracked the day before had turned black and hardened. I gently touched the hard black area and it came off as if it were a scab that healed and underneath was healed skin. I kept doing my routine and I am not kidding in three weeks the mole had broken off bit by bit and was gone and my skin was healed completely. I look in the mirror each day and am amazed that a mole that frustrated me for nearly ten years was gone in just three weeks once I made the intention and commitment. This process was repeated as follows: Herbs (BLOOD AND LYMPHATIC FORMULA & HAIR SKIN NAILS FORMULA) were taken daily each morning with distilled water Facial steaming with the herbs: twice a week (I chose a Sat and Sun because I worked during the week and had little time) The herb paste was put on the mole every night. Each morning or whenever the mole looked ready, I touched any hardened black areas so they could fall off. I ate a 98% raw vegan diet, drank distilled water. I have a very light brown circle on the area were the mole used to be. This is fading each time my skin does its normally shedding process. This is what happened to me. I have been and still is 100% committed to a healthy vegan (mostly raw) diet and healthy thinking lifestyle. I listen to my body now. I can only speak for me. I am sincerely blessed and am happy for the opportunity to share my story.
