At Home Facial: Step By Step!

Facials are an important part of our skincare regimen, but going to the spa every month can get a little pricey! We shouldn’t neglect our skin just because we can’t make those trips to the spa. Here is a step by step way to do an at-home facial, in between spa treatments!

  • Cleanse: You want to begin your at home facial by cleansing your skin with a gentle cleanser. This can be a  Milk facial cleanser, which won’t strip your skin of it’s natural oils but will remove makeup. You want to make sure you work the cleanser on your skin in circular motions for about a minute.

  • Steam: Take a bowl of water and microwave until you see the water is warm enough to let off steam. Put a towel over your head and your face a comfortable distance from the bowl. This will open pores.

  • Facial Mask: Follow with a face mask. This can vary depending on your skin type. If you have acne prone skin, you can benefit from a raw honey mask. See our  Honey Mask post for more info. You can also use an avocado mask, Here are more masks to try! If you want to get fancy, we recommend french rose clay. Leave your mask on for about 10min, and rinse with warm water. Masks are used to moisturize, detoxify, increase circulation and replenish nutrients.

  • Serum: Finally apply a serum on your kin. Serums come in oil or gel form, they will penetrate the skin more than a moisturizer, and provide skin with powerful antioxidants and nourishing vitamins. Some examples are Argan Oil. Find a face oil that’s a good match for your skin and you will see instant results!

  • Moisturizer: If your skin is dry you will need to apply a moisturizer after the serum. The vitamins in Goat milk facial moisturizer regenerates, softens, and soothes your skin’s surface, acts as an anti-inflammatory that sustains healthy skin tissue, and contains nutrients essential for healthy skin cell development and maintenance.

Healthy, Clear Skin Naturally!

If you want to achieve healthy, clear, smooth and youthful looking skin then you have to try french rose clay mask!

I love this so much for many different reasons. First off, it’s all natural, from the earth and It is considered to be the mildest of all the clays and works well for normal, sensitive, oily and mature skin types. The best part…you will see results instantly! It’s as if you just stepped out of a spa, with glowing skin!

What are the benefits of French Rose Clay?

  • It absorbs dirt and oils, and all the harmful toxins from the skin.
  • As it dries, your skin will absorb the minerals from the clay, rejuvenating the skin.
  • Cleanses the skin and creates smaller pores
  • moisturizes the skin
  • Clears acne, as it cleans out the dirt and oil without stripping your skin
  • Stimulates blood circulation
  • Removes dead skin cells
  • Firms the skin
  • Tones and hydrates
  • Polishes the skin

One of the immediate effects of a clay mask is that it stimulates blood circulation on the skin. My skin glows and is pink and dewy after a clay mask. This wonderful clay is a fantastic cocktail of essential minerals, it will leave your skin feeling soft and nourished. I live in the city so it’s a great way to get city smog off my skin.

It’s also super easy to use!

Combine 1tsp of clay with a bit of water to form a thick paste. Apply to the face and leave for 15 min or until the clay has dried on your skin (your skin will feel tight). Afterward just wash off with warm water.

(Note: clays stain, so you may want to use an old facecloth)

I must say this is pretty amazing! You can even use it as a spot treatment for acne! Use this up to 3 times a week for healthy, glowing skin!

Heal Acne Scars Naturally!

By far this is one of those home remedies that actually work! I personally tried this myself as well as my husband and we swear by it! If you happen to have any type of scars on your face from acne or any other type of injury then please keep reading…

Let me begin by telling my story. I have no real deep seated scars, just acne and acne scars that have been healed through this homemade miracle! My husband on the other hand had a huge deep scar on his face as a result of an ingrown hair that he tried to pick which ended up looking like a crater after a couple of months. Needless to say he was frustrated, desperate to find a solution I did some research and tried various mask and ointments that promise to heal scars but after months we saw no improvement, that is until we tried honey! Yes HONEY! But not just any store brought honey… RAW honey. You can get local raw honey at whole foods, it’s not cheap but worth every penny. Let me tell you why raw honey and not regular supermarket honey.

Most of the honey found in grocery stores has been processed with heat, which kills off healing enzymes and destroys a lot of the nutrient-rich content. Raw honey hasn’t been processed and will give your skin the healing benefits that it needs. *If you have allergies, try a patch test first or ask your physician if raw honey is right for you.

This is by far the best natural way to treat your acne, It has the property of removing skin impurities by unclogging pores and preventing breakouts. It penetrates deep into the skin and promotes acne healing by killing the harmful bacteria and reduces scar formation. Regular application of raw honey on the affected area reduces acne scars and blemishes, and is considered to be the safest and most natural acne cure.

Here is my recipe:

One tablespoon of raw local honey and 3 drops of carrot seed oil (another of of my favorite oils to use). If you don’t have carrot seed oil (it’s hard to find) substitute for tea tree essential oil. Make sure you cleanse your face with a gentle facial cleanser, with no sulfates, or any other harsh ingredients, before applying the raw honey to your face.

Apply this to problem areas, and leave  over night and wash in the morning. You can also use as an all over face mask and leave on 30 min. then wash with warm water. Do this every night for 2 weeks and see how your skin improves. If your skin tolerates the raw honey well, keep using it until your skin improves and you no longer see acne and scars start to diminish.

Please try raw honey, it’s truly amazing and you see results within a couple of days!
