How to Pamper Your Face
Before you begin, read through these steps first so that you can make preparations. This will ensure that you have the most relaxing experience.
Fill the bathroom sink or a clean bowl with very warm water and throw in a nice facial cloth. Turn on some soothing spa-esc music or any music that allows you to relax.
Before you begin pampering, you need to have a clean face with no grime, sweat, or makeup. The most natural way to do this is to use oil (don’t worry, it won’t clog your pores or break you out). I like to use coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil, but you can any oil to cleanse your face that is natural and cold pressed like almond, sesame, jojoba, or grape seed oil…etc . Apply a small amount to your fingers.
Massage the oil into the skin in a circular motion to break up any makeup. The oil will even break up the most resistant mascara, just make sure to keep your eyes tightly closed. I recommend cleansing your eyes last if you need to remove makeup to lessen the chance that you might accidentally open your eyes.
Massage the oil into your skin for at least a minute, focusing on problem areas like dry skin, puffiness around the eyes, blackheads, and acne (just be gentle here). Make this an enjoyable experience, you’re pampering yourself after all.
After cleansing, reach into the sink or bowl and grab your face cloth. Wring it out a bit and gently wipe your eyes first, then the rest of your face. Your skin will be clean and glowing already! But we’re not done yet!
2. Herbal Facial Steam
This is a really relaxing and luxurious experience. All you need is:
• A nice big bowl
• 2 TB of your favorite fragrant herb like chamomile, rose, lavender…etc or a few tea bags of herbal tea or green tea
• A few drops of your favorite essential oil.
• A big towel
3. ExfoliationNow that your pores are all nice and open, it’s time to scrub away blackheads and dead skin cells. Reach into your spice cabinet and grab some cinnamon and then the pantry for some almonds or oat bran. Grind up the almonds until they are fine but still have a little grit, you need this to exfoliate.
Rinse the scrub thoroughly and pat dry.
Applying a nice facial mask after clearing away blackheads and impurities, will allow the clay to tighten and minimize the appearance of pores. I love bentonite clay.
Mix a small amount of clay with water or herbal tea until liquid but not too runny. I like to mix clay using this method. Apply the clay with your fingers or a fan brush in an even layer and let the clay dry completely before rinsing.
Clays masks will absorb toxins, stimulate nourishing circulation, and deep clean the pores. It is one of the best ways to achieve clear skin.
Using rose water after a facial mask will balance the PH of your skin, hydrate it, and make it glow. The astringent properties of rose water will tighten the pores, making them appear smaller, and seal in moisture for a smooth and supple look.
All you have to do is liberally spray or apply with cotton balls, the rose water all over your face, breathe deeply of its heavenly fragrance, and press it into the skin with your fingertips.
6. Facial Oil Moisturizer
We began with oil and now we will end with oil. Using a facial oil like jojoba, rosehip oil, argan, tamanu, or almond oil will deeply moisturize and smooth the skin. They also happen to protect and balance the skin, making them the perfect one ingredient moisturizer..
Simply apply a few drops to your fingertips and massage into your skin. I like to apply it while my face is still wet with rose water for best results. This will prevent dragging the skin and allow for even application.
Once you’re finished, your face should be bright and fresh! I hope you take the time to pamper yourself and enjoy this luxurious at home facial.
