Vital Lux Facial Toner
Vital Lux Facial Toner
Vital Lux Skincare. Why natural skincare? Because nature is already infused with every bit of nourishment our bodies need to flourish. The name "Vital Lux" is a play on words. "Vital" not only means essential or needed, but the root of this word also means life. The word "lux" not only is a shortened version of the word luxury, something I believe every person deserves, but is also the Latin word for "light." Therefore, Vital Lux skincare is designed to be the "life light" for your face while also being an investment in your overall health, longevity, and vitality from the inside out.
There are many skincare systems available. Some contain botanical ingredients and claim to be more natural. However, if the ingredients of these products are carefully researched, most if not all of them contain synthetic components, petrochemicals, and endocrine disrupting compounds. The skin is your largest organ and also an organ of elimination as well as absorption. While I believe that skin health starts first with what you consume, I also believe it can be improved by using natural ingredients our bodies our truly adapted to and completely avoiding any synthetics, adulterants, and toxins.
Therefore, Vital Lux Skincare has been designed with true health and longevity--both for you and for the environment--in mind. It is free of toxins. It is full of things that will support your skin's structure and function. It will act as an adjunct to your skin's natural functions rather than stripping the skin of its natural protection.
At the same time, let us not believe the myth that natural implies a lack of luxury, for these are some of the highest quality botanicals, carrier oils, and essential oils that can be found. They are formulated by myself, a Certified Holistic Aromatherapist, based on my many years of research and experience in formulating as well as much experience with natural living in general.
So, luxuriate and be at peace--when you use Vital Lux Skincare, you are doing your body nothing but good.
Vital Lux Facial Toner
This facial toner is designed to be used in conjunction with the rest of the Vital Lux Skincare line. It is an effervescent blend, the base of which is juniper berry hydrosol wild-harvested and craft-distilled by myself from North Dakota juniper berries. These berries live in harsh conditions--both cold and drought--almost all of the time. They have adapted to flourish in difficult environments. In theory, this toner will also help your skin to do the same. In addition, essential oils of cistus and calendula will gently soothe the skin while manuka essential oil will help to address any bacterial, fungal, or viral intruders.
What does a toner do? A toner tonifies the skin--helping support its best natural texture. It is slightly astringent, helping to gently cleanse the skin.
Vital Lux Facial Toner can be used on its own, either by spraying the face or applying to a cotton ball and then gently cleansing the face. I suggest to use this toner immediately after cleansing with Vital Lux Cleansing Oil to remove any excess oil still present on the skin. You may also use this toner instead of a hydrosol with the Vital Lux Facial Serum. This approach may be especially helpful with oily skintypes; less supportive with dryer skin types that may need to opt for a regular hydrosol.
Please also note that natural skincare may be very different from that which you have been accustomed to using. Allow your skin several weeks to adjust to your new routine.
As with any other aromatherapy product, please use responsibly and at your own risk. Never ingest.
Juniper berry hydrosol, cistus, calendula, and manuka essential oils, and a dash of organic grain alcohol as a dispersant, along with some lilac flower essence to support your bliss.
I believe, and both Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurvedic Medicine teach, that imbalances inside the body will be reflected on the skin. In particular, issues of the GI tract, hormonal imbalances, and food intolerances may manifest in skin issues.
- Drink lots and lots of water.
- Include healthy fats and bone broth or collagen in your diet. Healthy fats include avocado oil, olive oil, coconut oil, grass fed butter, ghee, nut and seed butters, grass fed cream. I would suggest making it a practice to do coffee blended with collagen and grass fed butter at least a few times a week and to drink bone broth every day.
- I also recommend the regular ingestion or a high-quality probiotic.
- Reduce and eliminate added sugars in your diet. Reduce and eliminate all processed foods.
- Live from a place of love. Meditate and let go of what does not serve you. Love one another. Live to serve.
- Include trace minerals in your diet.
- Detoxify your cells with intermittent fasting and cleansing. If you are unfamiliar with this, please ask me.
- Regularly sweat with exercise and sauna.
- Include the rest of Vital Lux Skincare as your skincare routine.
