Here in the Northeast we are in the beginning of winter. I've come to welcome and enjoy January as my time to do a beauty reboot of sorts. I have more time to rest. Sleep is key in staying healthy and looking good.
I have more time to spend taking care of and pampering my skin and hair.
Here's one beauty regime I've been using for YEARS. I started as teenager doing it. I love how it makes my skin look and feel. It's soothing and gets my skin ultra-clean.
Jill Harth DETOX HomeFacial
Boil a large pot of water. Mix in 3 tablespoons of SWISS KRISS Herbal Laxative.I buy it at my health food store or a store like Whole Foods or Fairway. Yes, this box of herbal mix is unbeatable in drawing out impurities from the pores. Turn off heat and let simmer for a couple of minutes.
Cover your head with a towel to form a tent. Keep your head about 8-10 inches from the hot steam and let the steam touch your face for five to ten minutes. It should be warm but not burning your skin.
After, wash your face and use a gentle exfoliant. After your face will feel so much cleaner and clearer. Remember, don't pick your face. Resist the urge and think of your finger tips as poison. Picking can cause scarring and trust me, you don't want to do that.
If you like masks, now is the time to apply one that suits you. I don't have a facial masque in my line as of yet but what I like to use is a golden oldie. Who hasn't tried Queen Helene Swiss Julep Mask? Its a classic green clay mask. It dries in about twenty minutes and further draws out and loosens clogged pores.
Try it and let me know how it works for you.
