Healthy skin starts with exfoliation!
Exfoliating is the number one habit you can start today that can dramatically improve the texture and appearance of your skin.
Exfoliating your skin 2-3 times per week will:
- help clear congested pores of dirt and dead skin cells
- help moisturizer penetrate better (therefore making it more effective)
- smooth rough and textured skin
- help with makeup application
Try making this DIY exfoliator at home!
Clay & Poppy Seed Face Polish
1 Tbs poppy seeds
5-8 drops of essential oils (tea tree for oily skin, lavender or geranium for dry skin)
1 Tbs kaolin clay
1 tsp baking soda
1 Tbs dried and ground chamomile flowers
1 Tbs dried and ground lavender flowers
First, add drops of essential oils to poppy seeds. Mix together.
Next, add all other ingredients and mix together.
Pro tip: If you want a very fine and even texture, use a mesh sieve to sift clay, baking soda, and herbal flowers. Once you’ve done this, go ahead and add the poppy seeds.
To use: Mix 1 tsp of polish with some water to create a paste. Gently massage onto skin for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Rinse off and follow up with a serum, moisturizer, and oil.
Store dry face polish in an air tight container for up to 6 months.
