So, I’m obviously shameless when it comes to sharing information about myself on the internet…unless its Facebook, I don’t really do Facebook very well. Anyways, I experienced an awful hormonal break out under my jaw line recently (okay, honestly it has been going on for about 8 months). I mean awful! The kind of break out that has one slightly embarrassed to go into public. It was deep, cystic-type acne. I’ve come to realized that I have some hormonal issues and since began a protocol to address them. In the meantime, I’m still suffering from these painfully embarrassing blemishes.
I’ve been making my own skin care for years and I have not had any issues with my skin (so long as my diet is clean). So I whipped up a batch of Face Lube (jojoba, vitamin e, avocado oils and various essential oils), a fresh batch of Face Grit and ordered a new tube of doTerra’s Correct-X. It has been less than a week and already I have noticed a significant difference along my jaw line. Not only am I not sprouting any new cysts, but the cysts I had and the remnants of my picking (I blame OCD) are diminishing as well.
Besides a clean diet (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free and Soy-Free), I am following the following on my face:
- Splash with cool water – it wakes me up
- Add a few drops of my Face Lube to my hands and gently massage into my skin
- Wait about 15 min and apply make up (which is just a mineral powder)
- Remove eye make up with coconut oil and cotton ball
- Wash face with homemade Face Grit (twice)
- Apply homemade Face Lube and place a warm wash cloth over my face to allow the oils to penetrate my skin (it’s relaxing too)
- Wait about 15 minutes and apply doTERRA’s Correct-X to my problem areas (jawline on both sides)
That’s it!! Oh – I drink about a gallon of water a day, seriously! Our integumentary system needs hydration (as well as every other system in our body)!
The essential oils in Correct-X are Frankincense, Helichrysum, Cedarwood, Melaleuca and Lavender – all extremely beneficial for the skin and healing. Correct-X promotes healing and cell renewal and enhances the skin barrier to prevent further damage. Other healing ingredients are Jojoba (hydrates), Bisabolol (calms and promotes new cell growth), and Philodendron amurense bark extract (promotes healthy inflammation response).
I noticed immediate results (overnight)! Additionally, I put it on a scab and with in two days, the scab was gone and the small wound was healed. Correct-X can be used just as you would typically use Neosporin or Vaseline. It is seriously magic : ) You can apply it to stretch marks, scars, blemishes, minor skin irritations and it even reduces fine lines and wrinkles (score!!).
It is $16 (retail) and worth every single penny – it’s only $12 if you have a wholesale membership.
