DIY Home Facial Directions

  1. Step One: Cleanse — Apply the oil in an upward, circular motion—massaging it into the skin. Leave on for five minutes then place a very warm, moist face cloth over the face for 30 to 45 seconds to lightly steam the face. Gently wipe off the oil with the face cloth. Step Two: Exfoliate — With light pressure and using a circular, upward motion, apply exfoliate then rinse with warm water.
  2. Step Three: Steam — (Skip this step if your skin is extremely sensitive or prone to broken capillaries.) Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil then remove from heat. Add ½ cup of dried herbs (any combination of chamomile, rose petals, lavender buds, peppermint leaf, rosemary or fresh citrus peels such as orange or lemon). Cover the pot and steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the cover and place your face about 12 inches above the pot—drape a towel over your head to create a tent, and let the steam bathe your face for a few seconds. Lower the towel and raise your head to breathe some fresh air, then repeat for a total of 5 to 10 minutes. Step Four: Tone — Spray on the toner with eyes closed, or use a cotton ball to apply over the face (avoid the eye area). Allow to air dry.
  3. Step Five: Face Mask — These masks can be used as part of the complete facial beauty treatment or as a stand-alone treatment. Mask Options: Deep Moisturizing Face Mask, Rejuvenating and Brightening Face Mask or Refining and Tightening Face Mask.
  4. Step Six: Moisturize — Use a light, daytime moisturizer according to your skin type. Pure argan oil, watermelon seed oil or jojoba oil make excellent all-natural face moisturizers without any added scent. Try coconut oil or extra-virgin olive oil if your skin is very dry. Use one or two drops to spread over the entire face—concentrating on the driest areas.
