Detox Your Face

My Routine is as Simple as 1..2..3


The PAST

I've had problematic skin for years. It's no surprise that when my eating was poor,my skin reflected that. I frequently would get pimples that once popped turned into black spots that stayed on for months.I kept my face covered in foundation to hide the flaws, which in turn clogged my pores & made it worse.


I went through 3 phases to clear my skin (None of which worked).

Phase 1: Using over-the-counter creams which promised to make me beautiful (ie.Noxema,Neutrogena, Almay, Proactive & the like to no avail).They dried out my skin & made it worse.
Phase 2: I went to a Dermatologist for regular treatments & used prescribed creams (This phase was crazy because I was paying alot more & my skin's condition was getting alot worse.)

Phase 3: I started using a $500 product line called,'Obagi' that had high amounts of hydroquinone & other dangerous carcinogens in it. Not to mention, if you stopped using it, your problematic skin returned. 

The PRESENT

I LOVE my skin!!! I can NOT believe that MOST days I don't wear foundation because of Florida's humidity & that I actually CAN! My routine is simple yet highly effective. It keeps my skin feeling & looking clear & youthful with very few products. I've also heard rave reviews from peeps that I've shared it with over the years. I've been using this simple 3 Step Routine for over 10 years now & it's never failed me. Here's my routine->

Step 1: (DAILY) Rub Sweet Almond Oil on face & let sit for a minute.

Step 2: Take a warm/steamed washcloth & hold against your face for a minute.

Step 3: Gently wipe oil of with washcloth. 

*I usually do this regimen at night, so I'll also add a little more oil when I'm done to absorb into my skin while I sleep (when skin is regenerating). In the morning, you just splash water on your face & Wallah!

***BONUS*** (Weekly) Facial Spa Day: Give yourself an all natural facial on Sundays. I'll give a few examples below.

 

 

Honey Banana Mask

The Vit C & other antioxidants present in bananas & their peels help increase circulation in the skin & boost collagen production. 
It's one of the best natural anti-aging masks for reducing eye, neck & forehead wrinkles. It helps to rejuvenate your skin & makes it soft naturally.

The honey is naturally antibacterial, so it's great for acne treatment & prevention. It regulates your skin's pH & acts as a natural humectant & emollient, that increase the water content & reduces dryness in the skin even after it's been washed off.

How To: 

  • Mix & Mash
  • Apply & leave on for 10-15 min
  • Wash off

 

 

*Tip* Be sure to use ripened bananas.

 

Bentonite Clay Mask
Clay unclogs the skin's pores & shrinks them. It draws out the toxins from the skin & removes dead skin cells. The clay also evens out your skin tone.

Bentonite also helps get oxygen to cells as it pulls excess hydrogen and allows the cells to replace it with oxygen instead.

Finally, it gives your skin a glow that is noticeable immediately.
How To:

  • Mix with water
  • Apply & leave on until completely dry
  • Gently exfoliate off with fingers
  • Rinse face with water & rub remaining mask of with washcloth
