Facial Serum

One of my favourite things to do is make oils with our oil extractor. It is like watching a miracle. Putting seeds or nuts into the hopper and then watching the oil come out is an amazing process. And then, to have fresh, cold-pressed oil available whenever we want, with the good feeling that comes from knowing where the oil came from and how it was processed.

Our body needs oil, both inside and out. For our brain to work right, we need to have enough oils inside. For our tissues to be at their best, oil is necessary internally and topically. You can read more about this process in a post I wrote called “How to Hydrate“.

Oil cleans dirt and makeup from our face and adds nutrients to our skin so that it looks its best and functions well. Soap dries our skin and leaves it vulnerable.

Currently, I use olive oil to remove makeup, including mascara, I wash my face with a Muddy Buddy and use my Facial Serum or one of my Face Creams, if necessary.

This current face care regime is born from a desire to work with only natural products, being broke, and learning more about how our skin works and what it needs. It took me a long time to slowly work away from other products, and I still have a ways to go.
