Facial Cleansing and Massage

October 23, 2017

I have always had hormonal issues with my body and everybody who has met me knows it because I have acne, still. Ugh, anyone with hormonal acne knows these feelings of despair and embarrassment.

We're not alone! Actually, 96% of people surveyed have reported feeling depressed over their acne. And it makes sense because when interacting with other people, your face is your first impression and the kids I went to school with, weren't taught to be loving and accepting like they are today.

I have tried everything to repair and prevent acne and some of them worked, but they are harsh on your skin and filled with chemicals. Chemicals are something I am trying to remove from our home, our food and our self care routines and have been replacing with essential oils, and massage!

I love using essential oils for everything and I truly believe in the power of plant medicine. Don't get me wrong, I do also believe in modern medicine but I don't think we should solely rely on it. If you would like to get your hands on some essential oils, you can find out how here.

Benefits of these essential oils and facial massage:

Tea Tree Essential Oil
-known for cleansing and rejuvenating effect on the skin
-soothes irritations for a quicker recovery

Lavender Essential Oil
-smells amazing!
-soothes skin irritations
-calming and relaxing qualities

-relaxes muscles
-feels amazing!
-reduces stress
-promotes circulation and healing

How I wash my face with essential oils

Each morning I take a spoonful of organic coconut oil in my hand. I add 2 drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil and 2 drops of Lavender Essential Oil. You can get these oils here. Using the warmth of my hand, I melt the coconut oil and combine the essential oils.

Warning: Really awkward photos of me trying to show you three basic movements for facial massage. You've been warned hah!

Facial Massage Tips:

-I massage the oils into my face and neck focusing on my problem areas.
-Rubbing in an upward motion can over time have the same effect as a face lift.
-Don't just use your finger tips, use the length of your fingers and warm palms, you really want to feel as if you are giving yourself a facial massage.
-I continue to massage for about three minutes before placing a warm damp wash cloth over my face and letting it sit for 30 seconds. I will do this 3 times.

Because there will be some residual coconut oil, I choose not to add an additional moisturizer and I rarely wear make up. I have noticed a more even complexion and it is amazing to start my days with a facial massage.
