Pampering facial routine
A regular facial is hugely beneficial to the appearance of your skin and it is something you can do at home yourself with ease. Here?s our step-by-step guide to an effective at-home facial pampering routine.
Step 1: Cleanse. A vital first step to any facial, cleansing gets rid of any dirt, bacteria and make-up that may be on the skin. Take time to cleanse the skin thoroughly, massaging your cleanser all over the face before rinsing off all traces of residue. Claudia Louch has two cleansers to suit different skin preferences and needs; the Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Botanical Cleansing Lotion and the Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Chamomile Face Wash.
Step 2: Scrub. A face scrub is fantastic for removing dead skin cells to reveal a fresh, glowing complexion that radiates health. Massage the scrub gently into dry skin using small, circular motions, then wet your fingers and massage into the face again. Soak a cotton wool pad with water and carefully remove all traces of the scrub from your face (being careful to avoid the eye area), then pat skin dry.
Step 3: Tone. Toner is a great way to refresh the skin after treating it and it helps to remove any product residue that may be left on the skin. The Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Botanical Firming Toner also acts as a humectant, allowing your moisturiser to be better absorbed into the skin. Apply your toner to a cotton wool pad and sweep across the entire face for cooling and soothing refreshment.
Step 4: Face Mask. What better way to treat your skin than by applying a pampering face mask to let the nourishing ingredients work their magic? There are different face masks for different skin types, so choose one that best suits your needs, whether it be nourishing, hydrating, balancing and so on.
The Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Mineral Mud Mask contains an incredible mix of pure arctic mineral mud with nourishing natural oils, to detoxify the skin by pulling out impurities and shrinking pores; perfect for purifying the skin, if this is your aim. Apply your chosen face mask generously all over your face, then sit back and relax for 20 minutes while it gets to work. Rinse the mask off thoroughly and pat your face dry.
Step 5: Moisturise. To finish your pampering facial routine, slather your skin with an intensive moisturiser to keep it hydrated, nourished and glowing. The Claudia Louch Natural Skin Clinic Face Cream with Deep Line Complex is ideal for this, as it is a velvety emollient cream for skin that requires more oils without a greasy feel.
Follow this routine once a week every week and you will see a vast improvement in the condition of your skin in no time.
