My Personal Skin Care Regimen

I often get emails, comments on social media, or even people who are IRL (in real life), imagine that, asking what I use for my facial skin care.

I feel a bit embarrassed as if I am boasting, to share the next few sentences but I even hear comments from my family that I look younger today than I did in my 20’s.  I don’t know if that is true, but I’m going to run with it.

I will say that back then my face suffered from breakouts, and the harshness of my life made itself evident on my face.  Once I removed dairy from my diet and changed my lifestyle… my skin started to heal.

My younger sister always tells me that that I am Mrs. Benjamin Button looking younger as I age and I have a girlfriend who calls me her “porcelain doll.”  And most people guess my age to be early to mid-thirties. I am currently forty-five years old.

Sharing all these comments is making me blush as I sit here… perhaps that’s a therapeutic thing… Is it causing blood to circulate?

When I hear such things, I shrug my shoulders, brush their comments aside and change the subject to the weather or some such. Learning how to accept compliments is a challenge for me.

I am happy to say though that I am now absorbing such kind words and taking it to heart what they say. I am owning it!  I guess it is only right that I do so. I am such an advocate for being mindful as to what goes in the body, whether it goes through my mouth or through my skin… why not the mind?!  Believing in yourself, having confidence, and loving yourself does wonders for your skin, health, and emotional wellbeing.  That’s my story, and I am sticking to it.

Walking in love, learning to express your emotions, aiming to live right where your feet are at that very moment, all contribute as well.  And of course, what we put ON our skin is equally as important as what we put IN our bodies.  I share all that because my skin care regimen is only part of what it takes to have beautiful, clear skin. Our skin tells us stories of what is happening within us; physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

As you scroll down through the items that I use daily, the posting may appear overwhelming at first glance.  That is because I thought it was important to not only share with you WHAT I use but also WHY I use it and HOW I use it.  So, sit back and let me take you on my morning and evening skincare regimen. I did include a summary at the end of the morning and evening skin care simplifying … “hey this is what I use” if you find the mumble-jumble boring. :)  Blessings, amie sue

    Fabulous! Thank you so much. I am looking for a healthy routine. Skin brushing starts with oil as well and for the same moisture reason. You brush your skin (face/body), apply oil and take a shower with healthy soap.

    • amie-sue says:

      Good morning Kathleen,

      Thank you for bringing up skin brushing! I use to do that in the past and lost my routine. I have wanting to ignite the routine again because I know my body struggles with eliminating on all levels; skin being one. Have a wonderful weekend. amie sue

  2. Judy Groveman says:

    This is truly a gift. Thank you so much!!!

    I now have them all and they are arranged on a pretty gold tray with instructions for morning and evening. I am totally confident that self love can actually be cultivated from little rituals like this and to start and end each day this way is a beautiful thing.

    I like very much that the products are not expensive so that I can continue long term, as opposed to buying something one time and then not ordering it again when it runs out because it is not within my budget.

    • amie-sue says:

      Good morning Judy,

      Wow! I am impressed, touched, and excited all rolled in one. lol I would love to hear in time how these products work for your skin, so be sure to come back and share (if you wish). I am guilty of always putting others before myself but in the past year I have been working hard on honoring myself… so I totally agree that little rituals like this bring more beauty into our days. hugs! amie sue

      • Judy Groveman says:

        I’ve been doing the routine consistently and my face feels like a baby’s bottom.

        I like the morning routine the best…the Sensitive Facial Cream with 2 drops of the Vitamin E Enhance plus the Frankincense essential oil. The steaming cloth causes you to breathe in deep through the nose and out through the mouth and then the frankincense slows and deepens the breath more. Altogether it is a way to wake up looking forward to doing it.

        The whole thing made me aware of how much I love routines.

        What I want to do next, sometime this month, is to take a look at the other cream recipes (for the skin, that is) to dab on during the day.

        I’m touching my face while I’m typing this!

          Judy,

          Thank you so much for getting back and letting me know what you think of my skin regime. :) And to get yourself back to a routine of self-love… I couldn’t be happier. I love my routine too. I keep trying to get skin brushing into the mix but I struggle. I will get there because I know my skin needs help in moving those toxins out!

          Have a blessed weekend. hugs, amie sue

          • Judy Groveman says:

            I started working from the top down – brush the hair, and I hit the back at the same with some pine essential oil drops ow whatever I have on the brush,silver drops in the eyes, then the face routine and I get the whole upper torso at the same time with the nickel sized amount of cream (probably since I’m only 5′ tall I get a lot of coverage).

            And I figure I hit the lower half of the body in the evening. Am still working on that one…like you have said before…it’s a process…haha…

            • amie-sue says:

              Yep one stroke at a time LOL one day I get from toe to head!

              • Judy Groveman says:

                Be prepared to be impressed, Amie. Thanks to using Habitica, which is a website I’m using to help me establish routines, I am now doing this skin care regimen on my ENTIRE body, head to toe.

                As a reward, I’m going to order a big bottle of Frankincense today, so I don’t run out of it for a while.

                By the way, the Apple Cider Vinegar solution was a charm during Hurricane Irma when we didn’t have running water. I stayed fresh as a daisy.

                Next, I’m going to try making the Preserving and Purifying Face Mask, the Frankincense Whipped Coconut Oil, and the Sweet Almond and Orange Body Butter. Now that it’s getting a bit cooler I think I’m going to enjoy using these too!

                • amie-sue says:

                  I am impressed for sure Judy! That’s totally awesome and I am impressed with your dedication with the regimen. :) I am sure your skin is thanking you too. It’s fun to pamper ourselves and a great form of self-love. I need to up my game a bit, so thank you … it’s a great encouragement for me.

                  I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the other items as you dive into them. And so happy to hear that not only where you fresh as a daisy… but also a safe daisy. :) Thank you for sharing Judy. Sweet dreams, amie sue

    Hi Amie Sue, I am a new subscriber and I’m interested in your skin care product recommendations. I’m a little confused – do you spray on the rose water after the Acure moisturizer or before?

    Thanks for all your great content! Your free recipes and postings made me decide to try a membership.

    P.S. I’m also 45 but as a raw vegan who didn’t approach this lifestyle correctly from the beginning, my skin is looking quite aged.

    • amie-sue says:

      Well, Justina, I am sooo happy to have you here with us. :) To answer your question, I wash my face, then spritz it with the rose water, and once dried, I add the moisturizer. BUT I will say that I spritz my face with the rose at any random time as well. I LOVE the smell and it makes me smile. :) A good skin care regime + a good clean diet + removing skin and airborne toxins + reducing stress in one’s life will greatly help with our skin. It’s NEVER too late. I can easily see “Stress” in skin at times… it’s a good reminder to me to “check inwardly” and see what is going on.

      I am thrilled that you are NOW eating cleaner… I wish I would have started earlier in life as well BUT can’t undo what has already taken place. Living a “clean life” is a journey. Thanks for reaching out and please feel free to do so as time passes. Have a blessed evening! amie sue :)

    Hi Amie-Sue,
    I read that the formula for the Acure Sensitive Facial Cream has been changed and many customers are not happy with it. What are your thoughts? Thanks!
    Laura

  5. Laura Sickles says:

    Hey Amie-Sue, I read about the formula change from the customer reviews on the Amazon link to the cream. If you have been pleased with it though then I am going to try it. Hope you and Bob have had a good weekend!
