DIY: Exfoliating Facial
As lockdown restrictions begin to loosen, we’re slowly thinking again about putting our best foot (or in this case – face) forward. The Marbella Club‘s naturopathic facialist, Monica, suggests an easy, DIY facial particularly helpful for oily or acne-prone skin for adolescents. Time to exfoliate!
- To prep: clean your face with your usual make-up remover or dab a few drops of extra virgin olive oil with cotton pads to soften the skin.
- For the cleansing exfoliator, mix a teaspoon of coconut oil or any other high grade vegetable oil and a half-teaspoon of bicarbonate. Apply on your face and gently massage in circles throughout the face, neck and upper chest for a few minutes. Remove with warm water.
- As an alternative to the above, you can also exfoliate with used coffee grounds. Either of these exfoliations should only be done once a week.
- Make a chamomile infusion and let cool.
- For the mask, cook 2 garlic cloves in a cup of water and bring to a boil. Remove the cloves and infuse a bag of green tea for 5 minutes. Drain the infusion and add a tablespoon of oat flour or oatmeal. Let sit for a few minutes, then drain the excess water until a paste is formed. Spread on the face, neck and chest.
- Dip cotton pads in the previously cooled chamomile infusion and place on your eyes.
- Sit back for 15 minutes and listen to our ‘Sounds Of’ lists!
- Remove the mask with warm water and finish with a gentle face massage using a few drops of hydrating extra virgin olive oil.
