Last week I went to my accupuncturist Aimee Raupp who is an amazing woman to say the least. She offers great advice and even wrote a book called Chill Out and Get Healthy. In our last session we were talking about skin care products and I was explaining that I was frustrated about the constant marks from pimples that keep appearing on my face!
I eat pretty cleanly and I guess I have a bit of stress going on in my life, but I’m just frustrated as to why my face isn’t clearing up!
She recommended that I use sesame oil on my face. I know… doesn’t that seem like the complete opposite of what I should be doing?! I looked at her sideways but decided to try it anyway. She recommended that I wash my face with water, dry it off and then apply the oil lightly with a cotton ball. My face looks amazing! I still have the marks but I’m hoping that the oil will help to “lower the heat” in my face as she put it.
I apply it morning and night, just like if I were to use any face cream. I apply my makeup on after the oil and it seems to work well. The trick here is that there are different oils for different types of skin. Some people use coconut oil, some use sesame… You have to be recommended by either an acupuncturist or Ayurvedic doctor.
This is much better then any face cream I’ve ever used. I keep getting compliments that my face is shiny and glowing! No joke… I’m shocked!
Just thought I’d pass on this great news – hopefully this can work for you too. Give your face wash and face cream a rest for a while and let your face be natural. Make sure the oil is organic and try it for at least a week if not longer – it won’t change in just one day – keep that in mind when you’re frustrated that your pillow smells like sesame and you’re not seeing a change – Give it a chance!
