Unhappy Teenage Skin!

unhappy teenage skin

As a teenager I struggled with unhappy skin, especially during “that time of the month”.

My grandma suggested I try an all natural skin care brand for my unhappy teenage skin. This particular brand back then was considered all natural. That was the first time I heard the saying “you shouldn’t put anything on your skin that you wouldn’t eat”. I was shocked to learn that everything I put on my hair and skin got in to my bloodstream as I had truly never thought about it like that before.

This skincare made a huge difference in my life for years. Then something happened. The company was taken over by a large multinational and being “natural” was no longer important to them. So their products then became “the best of nature mixed with the best of science”. My skin was unhappy with this change and again I went in search for an all natural skincare range that made my skin look and feel amazing. I even made a lot of my own skincare products.

I found and started using the Orange Blossom Face Wash. Not only was my skin happy again but it was the best it looked in years. People even comment on how good my skin looks and I tell them it’s the essential oils in the Orange Blossom products. I’m in love with the Orange Blossom Face Wash and I use it everyday. It’s my secret sauce. 

Who else has teenagers in their house?

Then you need this product. It is the bomb for their face. Formulated with oily and sensitive skin in mind, this non-irritating cleanser is hypoallergenic and leaves behind no pore-clogging residue.

This gentle cleanser removes surface oils before you apply makeup and removes dirt and makeup at the end of the night, without making your skin feel overly dry or tight.

It is one of those YL products that you can dilute and get three bottles from the one. So it’s super economical. I like to make my girls up theirs in a foaming pump bottle so it’s easier to use in the shower.
