I had a lovely day of relaxing at Nirvana Spa yesterday and treated myself to a neck, shoulder and back massage. It was absolute bliss!
They were offering a workshop where you learn how to give yourself a mini-facial which I decided to attend as you can't spend all day doing nothing! It was a really interesting workshop and I wanted to share with youI some of the key points that were highlighted.
Cleanse – make-up wipes can leave your skin very de-hydrated so it is actually better to use a lotion so it doesn’t strip skin of its natural moisture. You should add your cleanser on your cheeks, nose, forehead and chin before rubbing it in to ensure that the product is easily spread.
Exfoliate – you should exfoliate 2 – 3 times per week to remove any dead skin cells. Removing dead skin cells will also mean that masks and serums are move easily absorbed.
Tone – the quickest way to tone is to use a spritzer. You hold it at arms length and just spritz it onto your face. It is also great to cool you down in the heat and can even be used over your make up.
Rehydrate – apply a face mask once a week to rehydrate your skin and leave on for around 10 minutes and RELAX.
Massage – increase circulation and make your skin glow by massaging a little facial oil into your skin. This should be used once a week to replace your night cream.
Eye cream – Eyecream does not need to be applied directly on your eyelids. Dot it under your eye sockets and just below your eyebrows and then rub in using your ring finger in circular motions.
Moisturise – Like your cleaner, you should apply your moisturiser on your cheeks, nose, forehead and chin before rubbing it in to ensure that the product is applied all over your face and décolletage.
