A facial you can give yourself at HOME
· Cleanse your skin by massaging your face and neck with a suitable cleanser, rinse off with warm water.
· Exfoliate your face and décolleté (neck and shoulders) with a gentle facial scrub. This helps desquamate your skin (remove surface dead skin cells). Rinse and wipe over with a soft damp flannel.
· Apply a Masque with a pastry brush to deeper cleanse the pores and therapeutically treat any blemishes. Leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse face or use a flannel to remove .
· Massage with a nourishing/re hydrating treatment oil (according to your needs). This can be left on your skin overnight. If you are going out use a toner, day moisturiser and eye cream.

Natural Face cleansers (Dry or normal skin)
2 tbsp Jojoba oil and 1 drop of geranium essential oil. If you massage this into your face and neck with your fingers, you can remove the excess oil with two dampened cotton wool pads.
An exfoliating Cleanser for oily skin :2 tsp baking soda, 2 tsp ground rice or rice flour and1/2 tsp finely grated lemon peel. Mix all together with a little water and gently massage into your face and neck then rinse with water.
Toners A natural toner will cool the skin and help close the pores after cleansing.
Cut two large grapes in half and take the pips out. Rub them all over your Face and neck and rinse of after a few minutes. Grapes contain enzymes that can help tonify the skin.
Sensitive/dry/mature skin can be sprayed with rose water bought from a health food shop. Orange flower water is great for normal to oily skin and witch hazel water for blemished skin.
Spray natural mineral water over your skin for a simple day refreshener.
Oat scrubs : Mix a tablespoon of organic oats with a little warm water and massage into your skin. Rinse off in the shower or use a damp flannel.
Other Exfoliate ideas : almond flour, fine sugar. For the body : Sea salt and olive oil scrub in the shower.
Egg White masque : Great for dry skin. Mix the 1 egg white with a tsp honey and 1 tsp cream. Brush onto your skin and neck with a pastry brush and rinse off after 10 minutes. This will leave your skin feeling revitalized and radiant and I believe refines those happy expression lines. Can add 1 drop of geranium to this masque for a beautiful deluxe treatment.
Sight for sore eyes : Sliced Cucumber over your eyes or cool Chamomile tea bags REALLY do soothe.
More ideas of yummy face masks : Banana, Avocado, fresh pineapple, yogurt.
Mix into either almond meal, milk powder or fine natural clay powder
