First, remove your makeup thoroughly with olive oil on an organic cotton pad or wash cloth and rinse well with warm water.
Then add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to a bowl of very warm water. Rose oil and lavender oil are good choices. Wring out a washcloth in the water and lay it over your face until it cools, then repeat with more warm water. Do this for about 5 minutes.
Then, gently scrub your face with almond butter (you can also grind almonds in your blender) and rinse using the water in your bowl. (You might need to thin the almond butter with a little water before scrubbing.) Ground oatmeal also works well and is soothing to sensitive or itchy skin.
Third, apply a mask to your face and leave it on for 15 minutes. If your skin is dry, use a mask of mashed avocado or a yogurt-honey mixture. If it’s oily, use pureed papaya or pineapple, which are exfoliating.
Rinse off the mask and while still damp, apply a little olive oil to your face, gently removing the excess with an organic cotton pad. This routine is best done at night or when you won’t be wearing any makeup, otherwise the olive oil will cause your makeup to slide off your face.
Voila! Your skin will look and feel soft and radiant. Try this homemade facial once a week or whenever your skin needs a little brightening.Disclaimer: The information on NaturalMomsBlog.Com is for educational purposes only and does not substitute for medical advice or care.
