Good skin care can slow down the harmful effects that time and the environment have on our faces. Good skin care requires making time for a regular, every day cleansing and moisturizing program . Finding the right products can and does take patience and a desire to find what works for the variety of skin types. “Sensitive skin is characterized by redness, itching, stinging, swelling, and flaking,” says Jessica Wu, MD, an associate clinical professor of dermatology at the University of Southern California medical school. Skin cells usually act as a barrier — holding water in and blocking irritants from entering the body — when that function is compromised, sensitivity results.
Cleansing is essential to remove dirt and dead skin cells (the biggest cause of blackheads, acne and wrinkles). Cleansing, however, can dry out the skin. Cleansing removes the oil on the skin, which retains moisture. As a result moisturizers are needed to restore water to the skin thus giving skin the much needed protection.
ART® Gentle Cleanser promotes glowing skin by washing away impurities with a soft, gentle lather. Infused with skin-loving essential oils, your face will feel clean and refreshed with a renewed, radiant look.

(Frankincense) oil has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits to the skin, making it ideal for acne-prone skin. It is also a natural toner, decreasing the appearance of pores and evening skin-tone. It is cytophylactic, which means that it may help protect existing cells and encourage new cell growth. For this reason, it may also help reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, and reduce the appearance of scars. It also helps soothe chapped, dry skin.

Be patient. Whenever using new products there may be a period where your skin adjusts. I have seen many people go through a few days of blemishes while the purging of old clogged pores occurs. To order, please go to the catalog section here: http://yldist.com/a2z4health/
