A little pampering...
It's not often this busy mama gets a minute to do some pampering but when I do (like today) here's how the routine usually goes..
I will steam my face with a bowl of hot water and a couple of drops of Neal's Yard essential oils and a towel over my head to open up my pores. Then exfoliate, I usually use a chemical one with lactic acid, then clean out those pores with a clay face mask and finally nourish with some oil.
REN Glycolactic Mask is a renewal peel mask (it's not a peel off mask) it chemically exfoliates the skin with fruit acids which is aims to brighten and renew the skin. I leave it on for about 10 minutes and it smells like citrus fruits and leaves my skin feeling super soft afterwards, I don't experience any redness after however I suspect some people might. I like it best when applied overnight to wake up to gorgeous skin. It contains lots of lactic acid which you can imitate at home with applying lemon directly to your skin which I have done before. But this mask is just special and I would rather apply this!
Boots Botanics Clay Mask is the only clay mask i use, it doesn't leave my skin feeling tight or dry after but leaves it looking "clean' and makes me feel like I have had a real pamper treatment, you haven't had a pamper treatment if you don't have green stuff on your face which stops you from smiling for 10 minutes!
Caudelie Divine Oil is a serious must have. I use this baby on my face and hair. It contains lots of nourishing oils like grape, hibiscus, argan and sesame oils. The best thing about it is that it's a dry oil, it doesn't leave your face or hair greasy afterwards. It also comes in a spray bottle which is easy and hygienic application.
