Facial Pampering Routine
This is what I like to do when my skin needs a good bit of pampering.
1. Brush Teeth
This is always the first step to feeling clean and refreshed. I make toothpaste with coconut oil, baking soda, and alcohol-free, food-grade peppermint oil. The texture and taste of this paste is definitely different than generic toothpaste, but it works great and becomes more familiar after each use.
I use sugar, sea salt, or almond flour to make scrubs. Adding in essential oils or herbs, like dried lavender or a tea blend, gives it awesome benefits! My skin feels amazing and looks polished after this step.
Liquid castile soap is a great ingredient to have in my cabinet because I can use it for so many things. Right now I'm using a cleanser that I made with peppermint castile soap and raw honey. I love it!
4. Clay Mask
My recent favorite masks are clay + water + rosemary essential oil or raw honey. I use both a few times a week.
Cucumber witch hazel (without alcohol) has been my go-to lately. It's so cooling and refreshing; perfect to use after rinsing off a clay mask. Witch hazel has worked wonders on my skin.
After all these steps, I love finishing off with a moisturizer or serum. My recent favorite is the ginger coconut oil from a brand called Organic to Green. This is the perfect end note.
