Today’s Beautiful Beauty Tip:  My all time favorite skin oil!

Whether your skin is oily, acne prone, or dry and parched, this beautiful oil will heal and normalize your skin!  Jojoba oil is actually a liquid wax that is very similar to our own skin’s oil, and has a superior ability to penetrate the skin. 

If you have problem skin, it may seem odd to actually put oil on your skin, but I did just that many years ago, and have never used anything else since.  It will absorb completely, leaving no oily residue.  The skin is our largest organ, and can absorb what we put on it.  With that in mind, do we really want to slather chemically laden lotions all over us on a daily basis?  I have read labels on most of the lotions out there, and feel that there are natural alternatives that work much better.  Jojoba oil is one of them!

    Karen told me this a while back too. I never tried it because I am nervous to put oil on my face, just like she said. I guess now that I have heard it twice I need to try it!
