Love Your Skin: doTERRA faves for skincare/beauty

You’ve heard it before: our skin is our largest organ. It protects everything vital going on inside of our bodies, and it also absorbs whatever we put on it. With that in mind, choosing products to put on our skin that do not contain harsh chemicals or toxins is crucial.
If you can, pick up a product that you use regularly on your skin. If you’re just basically looking at a whole slew of ingredients you can’t pronounce, odds are pretty good that you do not want those ingredients coming in and traveling through your system. I really like this list for common ingredients to avoid in skincare products, if you’re curious.
So, we know the importance of clean products – now what do we use?
Thankfully, there are many companies out there now that know the importance of clean products for our skin, so we have options! Amy has a great post on her nighttime skincare routine, all of which consists of great, toxin-free products. I’ve also found some favorites through doTERRA, so I”ll share those here, because that’s what friends do, am I right? 😉
As you may know, essential oils have been used since ancient times for beauty and health, and specifically for skincare. doTERRA’s pure and potent oils have proved time and time again to be extremely effective for me in this area! I love this list below, found here, which provides some of the best doTERRA oils for skin, with a quick, simple mention of what they’re great for: (click on each to find out more and ways to use it!)
Essential Oils for Healthy Skin:
    • Lavender–Soothing
    • Peppermint–Cooling
    • Roman Chamomile–Calming
    • Melaleuca–Cleansing
    • Helichrysum–Helps skin recover quickly
    • Myrrh–Protects skin against aging
    • Geranium–Rejuvenates the skin and reduces the appearance of wrinkles (
    • *Blue tansy – soothes and helps skin achieve a ‘glow’
  • *Frankincense – rejuvenates and evens out imperfections
(*I added the last two to the already existing list because I just felt like they were TOO good to be left off!)
On top of the oils for skincare, doTERRA also has aaaaamazing, clean products infused with oils (many that are mentioned above) that I use daily. Every doTERRA skincare product I’ve tried, I LOVE, but below is a list of my very favorites that I use on the regular.
My fave doTERRA skincare products:
    • Veráge cleanser – I use this cleanser every day, morning and night, and it leaves my face feeling SO fresh and clean. It includes Wild Orange, Basil, and Melaleuca which are all known for their cleansing and purifying properties to get rid of all the yuckies that make their way in through the day.
    • doTERRA Spa detoxifying mud mask – LOVE. THIS. MASK. Packed with good stuff like Myrrh, Juniper Berry, and Grapefruit essential oils, which are known for their cleansing and smoothing benefits, I use this mask at least once or sometimes twice a week. Once it’s rinsed off, I don’t even recognize the feel of my skin – it’s so soft. It’s my Jam. (With a capital J.)
    • Veráge Immortelle Hydrating Serum – I was not ready for this stuff. you guys. When I decided to try the Veráge skincare line, I didn’t even realize the powerhouse oil combo that is inside this bottle. Frankincense, Hawaiian Sandalwood, Lavender, Myrrh, Helichrysum, and Rose are all packed into this deeply hydrating serum to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and support healthy looking, super soft skin. I won’t go without this serum, ever! It’s been a game changer for me.
    • Anti-Aging Eye Cream – this is a product I’ve started using more recently, and I am so here for it. It includes Frankincense, Ylang Ylang, and Blue Tansy Oil, along with some other natural powerhouse ingredients, so you really can’t go wrong. It helps tone and tighten that sensitive eye area in a big way!
    • Anti-Aging Moisturizer – Another one I’ve tried more recently, I normally use this moisturizer more often at night, and Veráge moisturizer during the day. Both are wonderful, but I like to to let this one do it’s thing overnight to give my skin the extra moisture it needs. With Geranium, Frankincense, Jasmine and Lavender oils in the ingredient list, it’s a shoo-in..
  • Immortelle – one of my very favorites. This is an oil blend, so oils are all you’ll find in the ingredient list – and it’s a powerful lineup. Frankincense, Hawaiian Sandalwood, Lavender, Myrrh, Helichrysum, and Rose make the list, each serving a specific purpose for skin. Immortelle is great to roll on to even out skin tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines, blemishes, stretch marks – the list goes on. It comes undiluted, but can easily be diluted if you choose by mixing with coconut oil in an empty roller bottle.
It took me a while to find products I loved that would also allow me to treat my skin nicely – if anything on this list speaks to you, find it here and give it a try.
Figure out what works for you and give your largest organ some love! 🙂
