New to Star Brows and on double Rewards now through August 2016!
If you’re like me you want bright, clear, and ageless skin. I have a secret, it’s massage. Simple right? I’ve been talking about and using Cleansing Oils for about 20 years now and it never gets old! These oils make a great vehicle for the massage and cleansing process at home or during a Facial! Tu’el pairs the Oils by skin-type with Herbal Toners. Here are some questions about the process I’ve had over the years:
I’ve always been told not to touch my face, and if I do, gently. “Touch your face and go deep, every night! It stimulates blood flow, relaxes underlying muscles, reduces puffiness, clears sinuses, and exfoliates the skin. (Acne skin is an exception, you’ll want to do more of an acupressure type massage so you don’t over stimulate the skin but still address the underlying systems.) “
My skin is acne prone, oil feels icky on my skin, and seems to make me break out. “There is truth to this, however your skin is steeped in oil so it’s not a bad thing to cleanse with an oil designed for acneic skin. Also, oil is accepted into the pores easily because of the familiarity so a deep cleansing is possible. The pores can lock down when introduced to harsh, sudsy cleansers.”
Can’t I use any oil? “Yup! I like Tu’el Deep Pore Cleansing System because it addresses different skin types, uses appropriate essential oils for each type, and has an herbal Toner that breaks the Cleansing Oil down afterward.
Do you sometimes find yourself suddenly in an unpleasant mood with no idea why? I do. My life is pretty darn amazing and yet right in the midst of it I’ll feel lonely, sad, fearful, angry…and sometimes I’ll swallow it down with something self -destructive like alcohol, junk food, cigarettes, or something else not-helpful. Other times I’ll acknowledge my feelings and make a healthy choice like getting a massage, walking the beach, juicing, or connecting with someone I love and practicing being present.
But despite the fact that my first-born just had her first-born (he is lovely and his name is Dekker) I’ve been oddly out-of-sorts. Well, this morning (Tuesday of Easter week) I listened to a message called Hosting the presence of God. It reminded me of the power of practicing being present, and how I am empowered by His very presence in and around me in every moment! This is my Easter meditation.

An oil-free, lightweight full spectrum sun block especially for oily or impure skin or for those in hot and/or humid climates.
SPF 30 can be worn all day, but is especially important when outside for prolonged periods, or near water.
Some of the ingredients include:
Chamomile Extract: Soothing, calming and assists in healing.
Green Tea Extract: Powerful antioxidant, free radical scavenger and anti irritant.
Aloe Extract: Soothes and protects.
Sodium Hyaluronate: It is the cosmetic grade of Hyaluronic Acid. Extremely humectant, binds up to 1000 times it’s weight in water, supports collagen and elastin in the dermis where wrinkles form.
People are often confused about sunscreen formulations. Here is what is in this one:
Octyl Methoxycinnamate – UVB protection, waterproof, reduces the appearance of scars and is an organic compound.
Benzophenone 3 – It is an organic compound, broad spectrum protection photosynthesizing short wave UVA and absorbs rays in the upper UVB, lower UVB range, where primary sundamage – i.e. burning, skin cancer and aging occur.
Octyl Salicylate – Adds emollient properties, is an organic compound and absorbs UVB.
Titanium Dioxide – Utra Violet physical block found naturally.
Avobenzone – Active, “broad spectrum” (this is an important key phrase, watch for it on labels) protection. It’s an organic sunscreen agent that has the ability to absorb ultraviolet light over a wide range of wavelengths.
