Another Birthday Ticket event was a homemade facial that I like to call the pantry facial. As my wonderful man treated me to this in our own bedroom during nap time, I was delighted to discover all the ingredients were natural and normal pantry items. For the full method of these applications go here. But below are the steps and recipes.
After it was over I asked if I could book one with him once a month, or every 3 weeks as the site encourages. It really was the best facial I have ever had!
Step 1 Steam
Steam your face to encourage the removal of wastes, improve skin hydration and loosen dead skin cells.
2 liters of water
2 tablespoons of dried herbs (or 4 tablespoons of fresh)
Step 2 Cleanse
Cleanse your face with “Cookies and Milk” to remove impurities and dead skin.
2 teaspoons of oatmeal
2 teaspoons dried milk
1 teaspoon powdered cinnamon
Enough water to make a paste
Step 3 Mask
Relax with a mask and eye compress.
2 slices of cucumber
2 tablespoons of honey
2 teaspoons of milk
Step 4 Tone
Tone your skin with a refreshing cucumber tonic to cool, soothe and refresh the skin as well as remove any remains from the previous treatments.
1/3 of a cucumber (peeled)
Step 5 Moisturize and Massage
Moisturize your skin by massaging your face with a facial oil.
|“Using a facial oil will nourish your skin with essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. It won’t clog your skin or make it more oily, in fact, it can help restore balance to an overly oily skin.”|
½ to 1 teaspoon of cold pressed vegetable oil
Good choices are; jojoba (light), sweet almond (medium), olive oil (heavy).
