I wash my face with Dead Sea Salt. I take off my mascara with coconut oil.
I am a “natural gal wanna be”. We have eaten “Paleo” style for two years and try to take care of ourselves. At our ages, everything counts…even daily flossing!
How do I wash my face with Dead Sea Salt…or why???? I have suffered with eczema for many years, or at the very least extremely sensitive skin. I have used many different natural cleansers over the years, with plenty of moisturizers. You know, the ones for those with “sensitive” skin. None worked…I just had to make sure that my makeup would cover those big red blotches well when necessary.
I read something about the benefits of Dead Sea Salt and thought…why not? It just felt “right”. I am so glad I did this. I simply use a very hot rag over my face to open up my pores, put about a quarter of a teaspoon of the salt in a small medicine container and stir. I then use my fingers to apply and then use a washcloth with it applied. Nothing fancy, and sometimes it burns if I have had a flare up. But it has been incredible!! My pores looks better, my skin looks healthy and the natural moisture has returned…no need for moisturizer, which usually broke me out anyway! The wrinkles haven’t disappeared…but I figure I earned those anyway!
Then I ran out of mascara remover and use coconut oil to cook so I thought what the heck. It is marvelous! Although I cannot get it near my eyebrows (causes eczema break out), it has left my once sparse lashes healthy and growing just a bit.
So what is the point?
Both of those things are natural. Both of those answers for me came from God’s creation. And I believe that with all my heart.
“And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippines 4:19
Simply put…..all the answers I need come from God.
God gave me His word, His love letter to guide me through this life. It has always been there and it always will be. I am forever grateful.
God has been and always will be my provision.
Luke 12:24 “Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!”
IN CHRIST ALONE
