Yup. Taking care of your skin, especially the face, is very important for rejuvenating the skin and feeling at ease. Although I discovered this at-home beauty regimen a few months ago, I have only done it once (shame on me). The result was nothing less than magical. I was left with radiant baby-soft skin, Simply amazing. Today was my second time and again it was nothing short of splendid.
A couple of notes:
Try it out conservatively, especially if your skin is prone to rashes.
Be wary of the amount, I think it's safe to cut down to half the proportions listed unless you will be applying it to other areas of the body (which is perfectly okay).
It gets messy so make sure you're wearing your most comfortable worn out t-shirt (I'm sure you would already be wearing one if you're trying to relax).
If you haven't tried it yet, please do take some time out of your day and indulge. Trust me, you will come out of it completely refreshed, inside and out.
The best part: minimal daily use ingredients. It feels great to know that nothing will happen if what you're applying gets in your eyes or mouth.
Step One: Set the scene
I went a little overboard with the amount of songs since I only needed 1-2 hours worth)
I used Rose Petal Dead Sea Salt Soap from Whole Foods
I used the first sugar-honey scrub listed on the website. We use sugar-in-the-raw so I ground it first so it wouldn't be too rough. Then I added honey, coconut, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. It's almost like you're baking, except you're not. There will be some redness after this step but do not get discouraged, trust me.
This is the toughest part, the skin on our face is pretty sensitive so a lot of heat for an extended period of time (5 minutes straight) can make you feel very uncomfortable but again, trust me, it is totally worth it.
I fell in love with this mask last time I did it. My skin became super soft.
Another Whole Foods product, you probably noticed a reoccurring theme (ain't no shame in loving Whole Foods =)).
