Ready for a spa-like facial at home?! The ART Beauty Masque is

The ART Beauty Masque does NOT contain:

Harsh chemicals

Gluten
Parabens
Phthalates
Petroleum
Synthetic dyes & colors – in fact, it’s practically clear
BHA
Sodium Sulfate
Carcinogens 

Basically, it is full of only beneficial, all natural ingredients and no harmful, artificial junk. Plus, this masque is formulated for all skin types¹!

It is recommended that you use this masque 3-4 times a week¹. Which would put you using one box a week. Four boxes a month. One box is $47.50 wholesale, and I don’t know about you, but I cannot spend $190 a month on face masques. So I found a little trick to make it stretch further!

When you take the sheet masque out of its pouch, look into the bottom of the pouch… see all that goo? That’s the good stuff! There is enough extra goo in there that you can do a goo masque (as opposed to a sheet masque) 2-3 more times, maybe even more if you stretch it. What I do is I put the pouch in a Ziploc bag to keep air from getting to it (I don’t know what would happen if it was exposed to air for too long; would it dry out? Evaporate? Get weird? No clue, but it seems safest to seal it back up as best I can), and pour out a quarter-sized amount into my palm, as needed. I rub the goo onto my face; let it dry, and rinse. So, day 1 I do a sheet masque, let my skin rest a day, and then use the goo. So I use the ART Beauty Masque/Goo every other day. Or at least I should. I’m trying to get better at it. This way you stretch the use of your masque and you don’t waste anything. You can use one box a month as opposed to four. You can even stretch it more by doing a two-day gap, or just using it once or twice a week. The goo will keep for a while, so make that puppy last!

You may think that a sheet masque isn’t important to your skin care regimen, but let me say that I LOVE it! I can tell a difference when I use it regularly versus when I don’t. Since it is a tad pricey for my budget, I like to buy it with my Essential Rewards points; getting this awesome facial for free is always nice! 

I could write more and explain why I love this masque and what it does for my skin, but I’d rather show you so you get the full effect! 

Now, go draw a bath, put something relaxing in your diffuser, put on a masque, and let your at-home spa night begin! Or put on your masque, pour a glass of wine, and watch the Bachelorette like I do. Don’t have these masques? You can get them here.

Cedarwood Essential Oil

Cedarwood is the best ever! It is my favorite smelling oil; one whiff and I instantly relax! Lavender is the most famous oil for being relaxing, but there is something about Cedarwood that just makes me melt. I also think it smells incredible! Its scent is sweet and woodsy; reminiscent of the tall, strong trees that it comes from. Cedarwood oil is steam distilled from the bark of the Cedar tree, which is part of the pine family. 

In addition to smelling incredible, Cedarwood is also

  • Used for relaxation and a good night’s sleep*
  • Great for supporting healthy skin (for people with dry skin)*³
  • Used for focus
  • Supports healthy hair follicles*¹
  • The tree mentioned most in the Bible – the Cedars of Lebanon
  • Considered the Lord’s tree, “The trees of the Lord are full of sap; the Cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted” KJV.

Cedarwood stimulates the pineal gland*, which releases melatonin, making it the perfect oil to add to your nighttime routine to assist in a good night’s rest. You can sprinkle a couple of drops right onto your pillow and  sheets, rub it onto the collar of your p.j.s or your chest, and/or add it to your bed-side diffuser. For a coma-like sleep, my favorite diffuser blend is:

Cedarwood is used in many of Young Living’s personal care products and is most beneficial to those with dry skin. However, Cedarwood is most known for potentially being beneficial with hair growth and supporting hair follicles!*³

Why does our hair seem to thin as we age? Did you know that when you are born you have all of the hair follicles you’ll ever have? You have around 100,000 in your scalp; that’s a lot on a tiny baby, but as we grow, our scalp stretches but we do not gain more hair follicles; hence, our hair looks thinner. Hair loss can also be a result of stress, hormonal imbalance, vitamin/mineral deficiencies, and plain ole genetics. When a strand of hair falls out, a new one typically begins to grow in the same follicle, however hair growth can decrease if DHT (a hormone) is too high.¹ But don’t hurry off to the wig store just yet! Cedarwood may help stimulate hair growth!*¹ Try this at-home nourishing hair treatment² and let me know how it works for you!

Since Cedarwood is relaxing, it is also great for focus. It allows you to slow down and focus on the task at hand. This is especially true when it is added to your diffuser. When inhaled, the oil particle travels directly to your brain causing you to instantly relax and focus.

I use Cedarwood every night to help me sleep, and I use it in my hair after every shower! It’s one I always have in my oil arsenal. What do you use Cedarwood for?
