I’m sure you remember a few months ago when I wrote about the amazing Skintervention Guide by Liz Wolfe.
Well. Since then, I’ve been working on my own Skintervention by feeding my skin inside and out.
I’ve been Skinterventioning for about three months now and my results have been amazing.
My skin is softer, clearer and more even…
Now. I’m going to show you some sans makeup pictures of my skin.
Please, please PLEASE be nice to me.
The top picture was taken shortly before starting my Skintervention. This was pretty status quo in terms of how my skin looked before I started taking oil cleansing seriously.
The center picture was taken about a month ago when I thought my skin looked pretty good…then I saw this picture and realized I had some more work to do.
The last picture was taken a few days ago.
So. I think I’m doing pretty darn good.
Here’s what I’ve been doing:
These are my external skin-food weapons of choice. Primal Life Organics Beyond Primal Face Serum, Primal Life Organics Banished Primal Face Toner, Calendula Hydrosol,
Lavender tallow balm, and coconut oil.
I wash my face once a day in the evenings with the oil cleansing method.
Here’s what I do:
- I remove my makeup with coconut oil and a warm wash cloth.
- I oil cleanse with a combination of castor oil and apricot kernel oil. (For more about oil cleansing, read Liz’s Post, or pick up the Skintervention guide.)
- I use the Primal Life Organics Banished toner and follow that with the Beyond Primal face serum.
- THEN I use my lavender tallow balm…and go to sleep.
In the morning, I rinse my face with water and spritz with calendula hydrosol and use a little tallow balm.
I’m in LURVE with Primal Life Organics.
I used to be one of those people who washed with face soap…and nothing else. I now understand that sometimes, a girl’s face needs a bit more.
A little something, something, if you will.
One of those somethings is the Banished Primal Face Toner.

I’m not sure my skin would look and feel the way it does today without these two products.
We know that healthy skin comes from taking care of the outside and the inside, so I’ve also added some edible things to boost my skin health:
- I continue to take my fermented cod liver oil/butter oil blend
- I’ve also added some Lewis Labs Brewer’s Yeast, which according to Liz
Delivers skin-loving nutrients like chromium with the other nutrient co-factors– B Vitamins–that allow chromium to effectively do its job. (Source)
- I drink delicious bone broth too.
My skin journey has been a long one. But I finally feel like I’ve found a way of caring for my skin that not only works, it naturally nourishes me.
Skin health should be tackled from both the inside and the outside. A whole food cleanse can help with the inside part. Healing your gut by eating whole foods is the first step toward getting your healthy skin back.
