There are rarely times when we’re 100 percent content with the skin on our face. It feels like there’s always more to be doing to improve our complexion: drinking more water, using more natural ingredients, and eating less sugar. From younger days of combating oily skin to years down the road when age spots and fine lines begin to appear, it can be tough to feel confident. We want to help! We’re sharing our best tips and tricks to improve a healthy and youthful-looking complexion with essential oils and other natural products. Read along for our favorite tips and feel free to jump ahead to the section that matches your age group!


Teenage troubles

Throughout the young years after puberty, the skin on your face can change and react differently for seemingly no reason at all. One day it seems oily and unmanageable, the next it’s dry and flaky. These are the important years to create a steady cleansing routine, so your face learns from your daily rituals. Even more important is using naturally derived ingredients that come from trusted sources, so you are aware of what you are putting on your face. Follow these steps to show your skin the love it deserves!

ART® Light Moisturizer

Step 1

Remove makeup and rinse your face with warm water to open your pores.

Step 2

Geranium Essential OilWhile your face is still damp, apply Young Living’s Orange Blossom Facial Wash and lather it over your face and neck. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry with a soft facial towel. This will help control the natural oils that accumulate on your face during the day.

Step 3

After completing step 1 and 2, mix 1 drop Tea Tree and 1 drop Geranium essential oil with a small amount of light moisturizer, such as Young Living’s ART® Light Moisturizer, and apply it to your face. These essential oils promote healthier-looking skin, and Tea Tree has various cleansing properties that help reduce the appearance of blemishes.

YL Pro Tip

Be aware of what you eat. What we consume can have a major effect on the appearance of our skin. Try drinking lots of water, eating lots of fruits and vegetables, and avoiding sugary treats when possible. Little steps can make a huge difference!


Young adult years

Now that you have an established routine that is years in the making, your skin is perfect, right? Wrong. Spots can still pop up, post-graduation work life can cause bags under your eyes, and maybe you’ve noticed that your skin tone isn’t as even as you’d prefer. Instead of worrying about obvious skin issues, these years allow you to focus on perfecting a radiant and smooth-looking complexion. Use this routine every evening—whether you get back to your apartment at 7 p.m. or 3 a.m.

Step 1

Remove makeup and rinse your face with warm water to open your pores.

Step 2

With wet hands, apply ART® Gentle Cleanser and gently massage it onto your face and neck with circular motions. This will remove dirt, impurities, excess makeup, and dead skin without altering your skin’s pH balance. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Step 3

Using a cotton ball, apply ART® Refreshing Toner to your face and neck to keep your skin hydrated, soft, and smooth.

Step 4

After your toner is in place—and if you have dry skin—try using ART® Intensive Moisturizer to combat flakiness and give your skin the hydration it needs. If your skin is more on the oily side, use ART Light Moisturizer.

Both ART Gentle Cleanser and ART Refreshing Toner can be used twice a day, morning and evening.

YL Tip

Make sure to drink lots of water to keep your skin looking and feeling hydrated and bright! This will also help reduce the appearance of blemishes.

YL Pro Tip

Add a drop of Young Living’s Essential Beauty™ Serum to your nightly moisturizer to help restore your skin’s natural moisture balance. Trust us, the older you get, the more serum products will become your best friend!


Middle-aged mischief

Remember when you heard your mom wake up and remark on the new lines she saw appear on her forehead overnight? You’re starting to notice those changes, too. From fine lines due to squinting or laughing to dark spots that appear after too much time spent in the sun, your skin isn’t as flawless as it once was. You should be confident in your growing years, and we want to make sure that you have the products necessary to smooth out some of those new additions to your face.

Step 1

Remove makeup and rinse your face with warm water to open your pores.

Step 2

With wet hands, apply ART Gentle Cleanser and gently massage it onto your face and neck with circular motions. This will remove dirt, impurities, excess makeup, and dead skin. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

ART Renewal Serum

Step 3

Using a cotton ball, apply ART Refreshing Toner to your face and neck to further remove impurities, nourish your skin, and minimize pores for a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Step 4

Apply ART® Renewal Serum to delicate areas of your face to deeply nourish, hydrate, and help produce a radiant-looking complexion.

Step 5

Apply ART Intensive Moisturizer to finish off your routine. This will leave your lovely skin looking smoother and more lustrous.

YL Tip

Use ART® Beauty Masque weekly. This will improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, promote visibly firmer skin, and help the skin look more supple, full, and smooth!

YL Pro Tip

At night, tap Wolfberry Eye Cream under your eyes to soothe the area and reduce the appearance of those fine lines that have appeared on the edges of your eyes. They might be lines of laughter, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be softened a little!


Mature morale

Now is the perfect time to be comfortable and confident with your appearance. Hopefully, you’ve taken care of your skin most your life and can now cherish the face that has seen you through all your years! Celebrate your wrinkles and continue to show your skin just how much you love it. Use these simple steps to maintain skin hydration and promote a bright and radiant complexion.

ART Sheerlume Brightening CreamStep 1

Remove makeup and rinse your face with warm water to open your pores.

Step 2

With wet hands, apply ART Gentle Cleanser and gently massage it onto your face and neck with circular motions. This will remove dirt, impurities, excess makeup, and dead skin. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Step 3

Apply ART Sheerlumé™ Brightening Cream to your face for a brighter and healthier-looking complexion. You can use this product morning and night, as desired.

Step 4

Apply Boswellia Wrinkle Cream™ to your face to moisturize and minimize the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles.

Step 5

Before bed, tap Wolfberry Eye Cream under your eyes to soothe the area and reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Lemon Essential OilYL Tip

As part of your nighttime routine, add a few drops of Lemon essential oil to your face cream and gently rub it onto your face and neck. This will promote an even skin tone and leave your skin feeling happier and healthier! Be sure to do this only at night, as Lemon can cause photosensitivity.

YL Pro Tip

Maybe the most important part of all? Love the skin you’re in. You are blessed to have lived so many years, and your wrinkles and fine lines are a testament to the experiences you’ve created. Show off your laugh lines and forehead crinkles and go make some more memories with those you love!

  • HOW are we supposed to share these Blog posts to Facebook if there is no provision to do that?? We can “Like” Facebook, we can share to Twitter, but there is no share option to Facebook. PLEASE make that option available. Been asking for that for a long time! The blog posts are great, want to be able to do more than just “Like” it on FB, want to be able to share it on Facebook. Thanks YL!

    • Hello Sara! Thank you for wanting to share our posts on Facebook! We currently are working on getting our Facebook share button to work on the blog!

      I copy the link and post that way it is not a problem at all. You can even get rid of the link when you post because the blog post will stay. Easy Peasy.

  • Hello Sandy! We love questions!

    ART toner can be used on mature skin if you would like. We just didn’t include it in the mature section so it wasn’t too many products.

    Add Lemon to your night creme and it should absorb during the night. We suggest washing your face in the morning to avoid any photosensitivity from the sun the next day!

    The Boswellia Wrinkle Cream is formulated to minimize the appearance of fine lines. The Sandalwood Cream is more for moisturizing and hydrating the skin. They both include Sandalwood EO so you still receive the benefits. If your main focus is minimizing wrinkles then I would recommend Boswellia but if you want to keep your skin hydrated, then the Sandalwood Cream works great!

    Let us know if you have any more questions! Thank you for stopping by!

  • I make all of my own face products now from face wipes, wash, toner to creams and wrinkle serum. Young Living Essential Oils have changed the look and feel of my skin for the better in such a short time. I am clearly obsessed!
