When we were out in Colorado last month and long before that the skin on my face was quite dry and just couldn’t seem to get quenched. No matter how many fine potions and creams I used or how much I piled it on it still had that dry kind of flaky skin thing going on. Talk about frustrating. I have to say there are a lot of benefits to turning 50, no doubt but, dry skin “everywhere” isn’t one of them!
So we were walking around downtown Boulder and saw this great looking store called, “Rebecca’s Herbal Apothecary.” Of course I had to check it out and boy, am I glad I did! I told this gal who worked in there all my aging-woes and she knew just what to recommend.
First, the “Sweet Honey Scrub…Food for the Face!” I have stopped using any sort of “sudsing” stuff on my face and now use this Honey Scrub only at night to remove all my make-up and to cleanse my face because you know honey is anti-bacterial and moisturizing…not to mention all the great enzymes in there as well. And, this stuff removes mascara like nothing I’ve ever tried, just be very gentle since it is exfoliating. And, if you get some in your mouth oh well, it’s food and tastes so good!
Second, and this is the “peace of the resistance of my dry/flaky skin” is the “Precious Face Serum…Magic Moisturizing Skin Rejuvenator.” After cleansing with the Sweet Honey Scrub I spritz my face with a rose toner and squirt one pump of this magic oil into my palm and spread it all over my face. And, without fail, everytime I rub this oil on I say outloud, “Ahhhhhhhhh” because my skin is thanking me. Just so you know my skin is not greasy but just has a pleasant glow and feels youthful and dewy. And, who doesn’t want to feel youthful and dewy at 50?
I also gave up washing my face with cleanser in the morning and just give it a good rinse with water, spritz and rub on my Precious Face Serum. I haven’t had any breakouts or added blackheads…gross, I know, but I thought you should know.
So, please check out “Rebecca’s Herbal Apothecary” where you can order online and check out all the other many amazing products that are as pure as pure can be!
Here’s to “real” living people!
