How to Have Ridiculously Healthy Skin

How to Have Ridiculously Healthy Skin

Your Skin Knows the Way

Don't disrupt it, support it... 
 
Skincare is often very misinterpreted in modern society. Many believe that caring for your skin is about being victorious against all issues that come up: acne, scarring, inflation, wrinkles, redness. They pour whatever chemical or quick-fix formula they can find on it and if there are immediate results, it's deemed a success. 

We see skincare differently. Although many quick-fix solutions can produce results on the surface, they actually can be deepening the root issues that are causing your skin to have reactions in the first place. We believe you should look to heal the root cause rather than the symptom to restore the natural balance of your skin. 

When your skin is showing a symptom, it is communicating to you that there is something out of balance. If you treat the symptom and have no regard for what it is communicating, the problems will ultimately persist. 

The healthiest state your skin can be in is when it is in perfect balance with the processes of what it is. 

To discover this is to work to truly understand your skin. When something comes up, look to the root: What do you think it's telling you? Are you drinking enough water? Getting too much sunlight? Not enough? Is it your diet? These answers are easy to discover when you shift your focus from trying to cover up the symptom, to trying to listen to what your skin is showing you. 

If you make this one simple shift in your perspective on skincare, you will transform your skin!

How to Reduce Acne with Oil

How to Reduce Acne with Oil

This one mystical trick can help reduce acne and rejuvenate your skin at the same time.... 

Cleanse your face with oils daily 

This might be the single most counterintuitive thing you've ever heard, but here's why it works...

Acne occurs when a follicle in your pores becomes blocked by oil, bacteria, dead skin cells, and dirt. This happens when your skin's regulatory system loses its state of balance and is either producing too much oil, allowing dead skin cells to accumulate, or building up an excess of bacteria.

Many people try to resolve this by slathering their faces with harsh chemicals and detergents. These can work, for a minute, but ultimately only perpetuates the skin's state of imbalance and will likely cause additional problems down the road. 

The best way to tackle acne is to work harmoniously to support the skin's natural rejuvenation & purification process. Oil cleansing is the ancient art that does just that! When you cleanse your skin with oils regularly, you protect the natural lipid layer, lift excess oil, maintain the "good oils" and provide a gentle and nourishing cleanse. It doesn't disrupt your skin's natural process and helps to support your natural state of balance.

What to Expect When Using Butter

What to Expect When Using Butter

Butter works differently.

Butter is not like other products on the market. It's oil-based, made with just 6 plant ingredients, and is completely free from synthetic chemicals and preservatives. It works differently than other lotions and moisturizers on the market. Here's what to except when you make the switch:

#1 Highly Concentrated Deep Moisture

When we say it's rich, we mean it. This is because we use no water. You need only a small amount with each use. Unlike water-based lotions that evaporate, Butter soaks in and lasts longer. 

#2 The Detox:  2-14 days

When switching from synthetic products to natural, your skin will likely require a detox period. This is normal and not to be feared. It typically takes anywhere from 2-14 days. Once your skin reacclimates you will begin to see a new type of balance and reduced sensitivity. 

#3 Skin Changes

Nourishing with oils is especially helpful because it lifts excess sebum, cleans pores, reduces dryness, irritation, discoloration and so much more. Everyone will experience slightly different results. The way to get the most out of it is to use it daily and follow a regular self-care routine. 

+ Bonus if you drink a lot of water

Here are some ideas for how to
get the most out of Butter:

  • Use immediately after a bath or shower 
  • Follow an oil-cleanse facial care routine
  • Apply to skin after dry-brushing
  • Follow the same skincare patterns daily for consistent results
