SLP 132: Self Love Quicky – Feed Your Face
02, Dec, 2021
No matter what is going on in the world, no matter how busy or crazy you are right now, there is nothing better than to take a few moments each day to come back to you, get fully present and feed your face. Here are 5 face ways to treat your skin and take some precious time out to fill your cup!
Treat yourself to a Facial Steam
Essential oils can help to regulate the activity of the capillaries and restore vitality to the skin. One of the nicest and most effective treatments is a Facial Steam. Place a stainless bowl with steaming hot water (for safety place onto a towel onto a table) and add 6-10 drops of your chosen oils. For normal skin use oils like clary sage, geranium, lavender and ylang ylang. For dry skin use oils like cedarwood, sandalwood, palmarosa and lavender. For oily skin use oils like lavender, lemon, geranium and frankincense. Cleanse your skin. Drape a large towel over the head and allow the steam to gently open the pores. Do this for 5-10 mins for maximum effect. Keep face at a distance that is not too hot.
Use Floral Waters to Hydrate the Skin
Floral waters work wonders on the skin. Milder and easier to use than essential oils, they are recommended for inflamed or sensitive skins. Floral waters retain the water soluble plant chemicals which do not appear in the essential oil. After cleansing the skin you can use Lavender or Rose floral water to do a gentle compress by soaking two cotton pads and gently pressing onto the face. Repeat over the face 1-3 times. Place the Balance or Nourish Moisturiser onto the face to lock in the moisture.
Do a Clay Treatment Mask
Facial masks are cleansing, nourishing and revitalising, they help to promote the elimination of waste and stimulate blood supply. In a small ceramic or glass bowl add 1Tbsp Clay Treatment Mask add 1 drop of your chosen essential oil depending on whether you have normal, dry or oily skin as above. Add 1 Tbsp Lavender or Rose floral water (or filtered water) and mix to a smooth paste. Apply to your face with your fingertips massaging all over. Leave until it dries then remove with a damp cloth. Spritz with floral water and apply Balance or Nourish Moisturiser
Compress Your Skin
Compressing the skin acts like a gentle exfoliant and hydrator. Fill a bowl or the sink with warm to hot water. Add 3-4 drops of your chosen essential oils from above. Immerse your face washer into the water and squeeze out the excess. Press and compress washer onto the face 3-4 times all over, inhaling as you go. Repeat three or four times.
Apply a Face Serum
One of the nicest things you can do for your skin is add a face serum to your regime. Serums are designed to deliver high concentrations of specific active ingredients deep into the skin. They are formulated to penetrate into each layer of the skin to deliver specific, targeted results. Serums are intended for daily use, unlike masks and peels. Serums can come in any consistency but are generally lighter than oils or creams. After you have cleansed the skin and spritzed your Lavender or Rose Floral Water all over the face add 4-5 drops of the Face Lift Serum (rich, nourishing and great for dry and mature skin) or the Ester Plus Face Serum (regenerating, moisturising and amazing for more normal to oily skin). Allow a few minutes to be absorbed and then lock in the moisture with the Balance or Nourish Moisturiser.
Face yourself and become more than you were before!
