Hello guys! With it being our 2nd month locked down here in Sydney, I'm sure I'm not the only person who's skin is in need of some TLC. Unfortunately our salon doors are still closed meaning we are unable to provide you with your regular treatments, but I have come up with a DIY facial ritual you can perform on yourself to renew your skins glow and pamper yourself.
This facial ritual is suitable for all skins and will provide a gentle yet deep exfoliation to speed up cellular turnover, hydrate the skin, brighten the complexion and remove dead, rough skin cells.
Step 1 we cleanse with the Gentle Antioxidant cleanser
- which if you have had a facial at The Boutique of Holistic Beauty will give you a nostalgic feeling from the warm coconut-vanilla scent! I recommend doing a double cleanse to prep your skin.
Step 2 you want to apply an even amount of the Exfoliating Cleanser
to the face (I also recommend applying to neck and décolletage). This physical exfoliant uses jojoba beads to buff away any surface level dead skin cells, giving a deep cleanse to your skin. With light pressure, buff this into the skin in a circular motion for 1-2 minutes. Do not remove!
Step 3 apply on top of your exfoliating cleanser an even layer of 3 in 1 Fruit Peel Mask
. I like to apply it on top of the physical exfoliator to enhance the benefits. This peel mask is a chemical exfoliator which uses fruit enzymes to eat away dead skin cells on a deeper, more cellular layer of the skin and reveal a healthy, radiant, and smooth complexion. Massage this mask in to the skin for about 5 minutes.
Step 4 thoroughly remove exfoliant and mask. For an extra touch of luxury to this facial ritual I like to recommend removing with a Skin Shammy
for a soft and silky removal.
Use a hydrating serum to lock in the moisture- my recommendations are:
Depending on your skin type/concern. Be mindful to avoid anything too active such as an AHA/BHA serum or Retinol serum, as we don't want to over-stimulate or over exfoliate the skin.
Step 6 protect those fresh, baby skin cells with the Youth Activating Oil Balm, a corrective treatment serum rich in vitamins and fatty acids. Provides extra comfort and nourishment post deep exfoliation.
Step 7 if it is day time you need to put on your Mineral Pro or Mineral Pro Tinted to protect your skin cells from any free radical or UV damage.
As a heads up we are also currently stocking the Exfoliation Duo pack which includes both the Exfoliating Cleanser and the 3 in 1 Fruit Peel Mask at a discounted price! We have limited stock but are able to pre-order so send us an email if you miss out and we can get one out to you ASAP!
As aftercare from this treatment I advise to avoid and AHA/BHA or exfoliation for 5 days post facial, to let your skin do its thing on its own!
For more tailored recommendations you can book in for a Virtual Skin Consultation here- $50 cost price is redeemable on product!
Hope you're all keeping safe and well in lockdown and I will see you all when the salon doors are back open for your regular treatments!
