Weekly Treats

So along with your fabulous skincare regime ;-) its a good idea to treat your skin to a scrub or a cleansing mask a couple of times a week. A regular usage of a scrub will help slough off those dead skin cells making for a fresher smoother surface, it will also maximise the absorption of your serum and moisturizer. A weekly mask will (depending on your skin type and need) draw out any impurities, hydrate dry skin and deep cleanse congested skin. I like to put s mud mask on from Liz Earle which uses all natural ingredients, about once a week in the bath for about 20 mins. The heat from the bath water will open your pores making your mask work wonders.
If you want to give yourself a complete facial, you can cleanse, scrub and then put on your mask following after with the rest of your skincare regime.
A great non abrasive exfoliant is the Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant, this is great for sensitive skins too! It smoothes on just like a cream which you leave on for about 10-15 mins.
"A convenient two-in-one mask/exfoliation treatment, Dermalogica Gentle Cream Exfoliant provides chemical exfoliation using lactic acid and salicylic acid, which slough off the dead skin cells, speeding cell renewal, while extracts of lavender, aloe vera and cornflower help soothe skin. Contains no artificial fragrance or colour. "
This stuff is amazing!! My skin feel super smooth after this! Love it!
