My 1st Real Facial Experience

My 1st Real Facial Experience

I call this my first real facial experience because I had one waaaaaaay back in the day, maybe about 9 years ago, and I don't remember it at all.


I have a spa membership that I don't use monthly as I should.  I realized my face could use a lot of TLC though, so I booked an appointment and actually followed through with the session.


I felt a bit claustrophobic the entire time, but the session was well worth it. I feel refreshed and have been told several times since my that I actually look refreshed. Woot woot!


It was such a moving experience that I need to book again soon. Now to make sure that I keep my face looking refreshed between sessions I will share my daily routine with all of you:


Coconut Oil

I apply this first because oil cuts oil, and my face is hella oily. Also, as you probably know, it's a good natural make up remover.



African Black Soap

I wash with this since I have eczema and this stuff works wonders.  I haven't had a reaction on my face in about a year.



Charcoal Clay

I mix charcoal, apple cider vinegar, and water in a small bowl until it makes a paste. I leave this mixture on my face for about five minutes and then rinse with water.



White Washcloth

I run a washcloth under warm water and then wipe my face clean.



Rose Water

Next up is rose water. I spray it on a cotton ball until wet and wipe my entire face. 



Rosehip Essential Oil

3 drops does the trick.  Works well as a moisturizer & toner. 




I also use an under eye cream, vitamin C serum, and a moisturizer with SPF.


My routine happens 3 times a day (mask only at night). I pair this with a good balanced diet and clean hair (so important) and it keeps me looking refreshed every single day.
