The men in my life seek a simple skin care routine. That said, they also want healthy, hydrated skin and don’t mind if the bonus side effects are younger looking skin. Today, I wanted to share some of the top non-toxic recipes for a man’s face, as well as the products and tips that will make the skin radiant. Remember, just like the ladies, you still need to wash your face, exfoliate from time to time, moisturize, and use sunblock.
Shaving can be rather irritating to the skin, that way your skin will love this DIY AFTERSHAVE - it will help soothe and calm your angry skin. In a 1-2oz glass bottle with a dropper top add 10 drops each: Frankincense, Lavender & Sandalwood. Top with your favorite carrier oil for your skin type – Argan, Jojoba or Sweet Almond (to name a few). Put 5-6 drops in hand, rub hands together, and massage into face post-shave.
For my beard supporters, this DIY Beard Oil is perfect for making your beard shine while supporting the skin underneath. In a 2oz glass bottle with a dropper top add ½ oz Jojoba oil, ¾ oz Avocado oil, 10 drops Hawaiian Sandalwood, and 5 drops each Cedarwood & Wild Orange essential oils. Massage into your face and beard, then comb through. *Shake before each use.
For an even easier beard oil, add 3-5 drops of Sandalwood in your hand, rub hands together until the oil is nice and warm, then massage into your face and beard, then comb through.
Nearly every shaving cream on the market is toxic! If you don't want to make your own, your best bet is to find one that is fragrance-free, at a minimum. If you want to have more control, this DIY SHAVING CREAM is just what you need. Using a double boiler, melt 1/3 cup shea butter, 1/3 cup coconut oil, and ¼ cup fractionated coconut oil. Once melted, remove from heat and let sit for three minutes, then add 10-15 drops Rosemary, 5 drops Sandalwood & 3 drops each: Tea Tree & Peppermint essential oils. Let sit for a few minutes before using a mixer to whip shaving cream until light and fluffy. Store in a glass jar.
When your skin needs that extra punch of hydration give this FACIAL OIL a try. In a 2oz glass pump bottle combine 20 drops each: Blue Tansy & Lavender and 10 drops each: Copaiba & Frankincense essential oils. Top with Jojoba oil or mixture of Jojoba and Rosehip oils. Take a few pumps and slather on your face post-cleanse.
One of my all-time favorite ready-made products is an essential ointment called CORRECT-X. Nic yourself shaving? Add a little dollop of this ointment to soothe and purify the skin. Frankincense, Helichrysum, Tea Tree, Cedarwood, and Lavender are the essential oils in this miracle in a tube. Those are paired with bisabolol, which is known for its calming effect and ability to promote healthy-looking skin, and Jojoba oil provides optimal hydration, helping to improve the texture of the skin.
Other than treating an occasional nic with the razor, Correct-X is great for other cuts, scrapes, and burns.
Yarrow|Pom Body Renewal Serum - This luxuriously silky serum is packed with powerful bioactive compounds and skin-protecting proteins that promote the appearance of firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin. Double up with the Replenishing Body Butter for those extra dry areas… you can thank me later!
Replenishing Body Butter – A thick base of shea and cocoa seed butters, paired with avocado oil and infused with Wild Orange, Douglas Fir and Frankincense essential oils perfect for l massaging into hands, elbows, knees, and any other area in need of intense moisturization.
Spa Hand and Body Lotion – On top of the pure, non-greasy formula, it’s fragrance-free! That means you can personalize it for your needs. Add a Yarrow|Pom essential oil for extra moisture and support or add a yummy essential oil or oil blend to add a touch of aroma to your lotion.
Yes, the Verage Moisturizer is obviously another moisturizer, however I’m specifically sharing it with you along with the personal recipe I use on my face every morning – one pump Verage Moisturizer and two drops Frankincense. I know I’m a chick, but I thought you might dig this one because it’s super simple.
This combo will not only help hydrate and nourish the skin, but it will help reduce the appearance of fine line and wrinkles too. Plus, with its nourishing and clarifying properties, Frankincense can also help maintain healthy skin structure.
