doTERRA essential oils

There are a few key components to naturally healthy skin.

1. Nutrients

Healthy skin starts in the gut. Poor digestion, food sensitivities and poor diet in general all lead to issues on our skin. That’s why the first step to clear skin is to look at your diet.

Do you react to certain foods – stomach ache, headache, stuffy nose, etc.? Eating those foods will only irritate the gut, hindering digestion and the proper absorption of nutrients.

After removing any possible triggers, it’s important to look at nutrients going in. Most people do not get enough nutrients from food alone, especially with the Standard American Diet (SAD). I recommend a multivitamin and Omega 3 fish oil supplement as a minimum. Ideally, digestive enzymes and probiotics would also be part of your daily regimen to aid digestion and support a healthy gut.

It’s possible that a cleanse of some sort is necessary.

2. Stress Management

Physical, emotional and mental stress can do crazy things to our bodies. You know, like kill you. Or make you feel terrible. Or cause problems with your skin.

Learning to deal with stress well and reduce stressors in your life can be one of the best ways to improve your health … and your complexion.

3. Sleep

This will help with the stress, too. Good sleep is important for a number of reasons. Not getting enough sleep jacks ups your hormones. What do hormones have to do with your skin? A lot.

Those zits that break out on your chin the week before your period? Hormones. (And yes, addressing your sleep, stress and especially diet seriously helps).

Wait a second.

Shouldn’t I be selling you essential oils and telling you that’s all you need for naturally healthy skin? I could, but that’s not how I roll. Because the truth is, you can use essential oils to help soothe irritated skin and they’re quite effective. But. Would you rather mask the problem or get rid of it all together?

Thought so.

I’ve done a lot of research in the past several years and through that and my own experience as my personal guinea pig, I’ve found that clear skin is attained through a holistic approach to health.

But the cool thing is, doTERRA’s essential oils and wellness products can help with that approach.

They offer essential oils that can help you have a more restful night’s sleep. They have oils that help with stress management (like wow, do they help!). They even have oils that will help soothe skin irritations and make imperfections go away faster.

But they also have wellness products that will go a long way in supporting a happy, healthy digestive system. Products like:

  • Daily Nutrient Pack: This duo includes a well-balanced multivitamin that takes into account what nutrients you need to get and what you’re probably getting into your diet (based on research of the average diet). That means you won’t get too little or way too much (more isn’t always better). It also contains important Omega 3 fatty acids that promote healthy skin. Plus it has a special Tummy Tamer essential oil blend that I’ve had great results with.
  • TerraZyme: These digestive enzymes help break down your food to aid absorption. Ideal with every meal.
  • PB Assist: Probiotics that help support a healthy digestive tract. I personally recommend the PB Assist Jr. It’s cheaper and tastes amazing. You just have to keep them where your kids can’t find them …
  • GX Assist: This is a blend of essential oils and caprylic acid designed to provide a natural cleanse for a healthy digestive system.

There are more products I could recommend, but this is Tiny Apothecary. You can do a lot with these and a small supply of essential oils for skin, sleep and stress (see below).

How to get doTERRA

(and save as much money as possible)

Now, I may not have told you this before, but I have a tendency to be a cheap skate. Will I shell out money for something that’s a top priority? Absolutely. But that doesn’t mean I won’t look for a way to save as much money as possible and even make money. (I even did it with CrossFit – maybe I have a problem?)

Anyway.

The smartest way to get any doTERRA products is to become a wellness advocate. It’s an annual membership (like Costco or Sam’s Club) that will immediately save you 25% on all orders. The fee to sign up is $35 and it’s $25/year after that to maintain your membership – every year you renew they send a free bottle of peppermint essential oil to say thank you.

However, if you buy one of their starter kits, the $35 fee is waived. Huzzah.

Does that mean you have to start selling oils? No. The vast majority of Wellness Advocates sign up for the discount and there’s ZERO pressure to sell, which I love, because I hate selling.

But there still is the opportunity to share doTERRA with others and earn back the cost of your kit and then some. (We can chat about that, too, if you’re interested.)
