Happy Sunday everyone! After a long week my skin is feeling rather average. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to give it some TLC. I’m going to share with you my ‘saving grace’ facial for an instant skin revival. Its the sort of treatment you should do for a special day, a date night, or just any old excuse for a pamper. You should feel instant freshness, and be completely glowing. This treatment will suit a dry, combination dry or ageing skin. I would not recommend this for an oily or sensitive skin type.
Cleanse your skin twice before the treatment. I used my everyday cleanser which is the Obagi Rx Skin – C cleansing gel. You can read about all my Obagi products here.
The Multivitamin thermafoliant by Dermalogica is a really great exfoliant for dry and ageing skins. The reason I use this as a treatment exfoliant is because it is packed full of vitamins and brightening ingredients. As well as containing micro beads and AHA’s to remove the top dead layers of skin revealing the fresher layers underneath. I use about a 5 cent piece for the treatment which is a bit more than I would use on a day to day basis. I apply this to my face with wet fingertips and in circular motions exfoliate the skin for about 2 minutes. Instead of washing this off straight away, I leave it to sit on the skin for another couple of minutes to let the AHA’s still work away and remove any dead skin. So the exfoliant itself is
Trilogy Mineral Radiance Mask is a nourishing, vitamin enriched mask that really gives the treatment its final touch. The product contains kaolin clay, rosehip, evening primrose and pohutukawa extract which gives the skin instant radiance as well as deep cleansing and nourishing the skin.
This face mask is a favourite of mine for instant radiance and hydration. Apply liberally to the skin, avoiding the eye area and leave to sit for 15-20 minutes. Once the mask has set, remove with warm water.
I can guarantee your skin will feel and look amazing after using this treatment! It is the ultimate at home facial for an instant glow. Try it out for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
