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.

Hope you try!

10 Ways to Use Argan Oil

DSC_0904

100% Pure Organic Argan oil is rich in antioxidants and omega 6 fatty acids, and is believed to contain twice as much vitamin E as olive oil. It is said to contain saponins, which helps to soften the skin and restore the skin’s water lipid layer, thereby minimizing wrinkles. Great for moisturizing and nourishing, helping the skin to maintain a youthful, glowing appearance.
Why I love this:

1) Leave in conditioner: I use it on my hair! I apply the Argan oil while my hair is wet, I have curly/wavy hair and it works wonders.  It moisturizes but doesn’t leave my hair feeling oily. It soothes frizz while adding shine.

2) Facial Moisturizer: I use Argan on my face! I have acne and it soothes my skin. I notice that when I use the Argan oil on my face it somehow evens my skin out. I have combination skin, I apply it at night and I wake up with a radiant glow!

3) Facial Toner: Add a few drops of Argan oil to rose water and you got your self a moisturizing 100% natural toner

4) Cuticle oil: Massage a few drops of Argan Oil to the your nail cuticles to moisturize soften and encourage nail growth.

5)  Body Oil: I use it on my body! Add a few drops to your favorite body cream or apply directly onto your skin. I keep the Argan vial in my purse, it’s the perfect size to carry around. I use it as my hand moisturizer as well.

6) Facial Glow: Add a few drops to your foundation for a dewy, youthful glow.

7) Acne Treatment: Apply directly on affected area, massage and allow the oil to absorb. Apply 2-3 times daily for maximum results. Argan oil is a lightweight, easily absorbed and will not make your skin oily, or lead to more breakouts.

8) With Hair Color:  Apply a few drops of Argan Oil to your hair color mix, and  follow the hair color directions. The Argan oil will help moisturize your hair as you color!

9) Split ends: Apply to the tips of your hair to help keep your hair strong and prevent split ends.

10) Dandruff: Apply Argan Oil on the roots of your hair and massage product into the scalp for a couple of minutes. Leave on for an hour and wash and style as usual.

This Argan Oil is packaged in a amber glass dropper, and eco-friendly reusable 100% cotton bag.
