a very soft and delicate skin you will have to follow
this regime atleast a month before your wedding day.
and foremost you need to know your skin type in order
to soothe and nourish your skin for a healthful and
Oily skin is caused by over-active glands, which produce
a substance called Asebum, a naturally healthy skin
lubricant. When the skin produces too much sebum, it
becomes thick and heavy in texture. Oily skin is characterized
by shininess, pimples and blemishes. Frequent steam
cleaning and exfoliation can help reduce these symptoms.
Dry skin usually results when skin fails to produce
enough sebum to maintain a naturally lubricated surface.
This lack of oil in the skin is often hereditary, but
can also be caused by over-exposure to the sun and other
environmental elements. Dry skin often appears coarse,
tight, dull and flaky, with visible lines and wrinkles.
Massage with essential and cold pressed oils can stimulate
metabolism and alleviate dry skin conditions.
Normal skin produces a healthy amount of sebum, and
tends to be neither dry nor oily in feel. It needs proper
cleansing and massage.
Sensitive skin reacts unfavourably to a variety of chemicals
and environmental factors. Increased exposure to sun,
wind and cold, as well as to harsh cosmetic ingredients,
tend to toughen skin over time.
Many people have different skin types on different parts
of the face. For example, it is not uncommon for a person
to have oily skin around the nose, forehead and chin,
while the rest of the face is more on the dry side.
If you have more than one skin type on your face, it
is wise to use products containing different ingredients
to treat the areas differently.
STEP BY STEP AT-HOME FACIAL
basic facial must include at least 3 elements: (1) cleansing;
(2) toning; and (3) moisturising. Additional steps might
include steaming, exfoliating and masking. Each of these
steps is outlined below.
Before cleansing your skin with a gentle cleanser, it
is wise to give yourself a light steam treatment to
open your pores and prepare your face for cleaning.
To do this, simply soak a soft towel in a bowl of comfortably
warm herbal tea (chamomile is one of my favorites).
Wring out the towel and place it over your face and
neck area and relax until it cools slightly. You may
repeat this process, as it is quite soothing.
Cleanse your face with a good Cleanser. Use upward,
circular movements of the fingertips to gently stimulate
the skin and help lift surface debris and excess oil.
Rinse with warm water and gently pat excess moisture
from face with a soft towel. If you wear heavy make-up,
you might wish to repeat the cleansing process.
After cleansing, it is important to tone the skin using
ingredients that help balance the pH of the skin, which
is typically disturbed during the cleansing process.
Apply the toner with a soft cotton pad, but do not rub
the skin. Rather, saturate the pad and pat the toner
over the face and neck area. Do not pat skin dry. Avoid
eye area when using this toner. You skin is now ready
Moisturise your skin using Aromatic Facial Oil, which
contains a host of soothing ingredients to add moisture
and nutrients to your skin. To seal in the moisture,
be sure to apply the oil while skin remains damp from
applying the toner. Gently apply the oil to your face
and neck using patting motions. For oily areas of skin,
one application of oil should suffice. Apply twice to
dry areas of skin, waiting about 2-3 minutes between
applications, and being sure to moisten the skin slightly
with water or toner before the second application.
Finally, if you want you can finish off with a gentle
exfoliation and mask to your treatment. Persons with
oily skin may find exfoliation beneficial once or twice
a week, while people with dry skin may wish to exfoliate
only once a month.
