When you go get a professional facial, the first thing they will always do is clean your face so they have a perfect canvas to work with. Spa’s don’t use a bar of soap or traditional foaming cleanser to clean skin. Instead, they opt for an oil-based product and use a towel to wash and buff skin to keep it bright, healthy and clean.

To get a spa-fresh face at home, apply a small amount of your oil cleanser to your palm and wash your face with it. It works like a magnet to pull out dirt, oil, and makeup from your pores and leaves skin soft to the touch. To rinse, use a damp face cloth with warm water in a circular motion to help wash off your oil cleanser and buff away dead skin cells. It will leave your face looking freshly exfoliated without professional help!

Quench Your Skin

A professional spa always seems to leave you with super hydrated, glowing skin. Part of the reason your skin is so happy after a facial is because it’s plump with moisture from various treatments. When skin is hydrated, it will help mask wrinkles and lines, brighten your complexion, and help revive the health of your skin. Instead of the many products they use in a spa to achieve this, you can get similar results at home with your Repair & Release Cream!

When you apply your Repair & Release Cream, you aren’t just adding hydration to your skin, you’re letting powerful anti-aging ingredients penetrate deep into your skin. While those are busy reversing signs of aging, ingredients like argan oil and shea butter penetrate deep into the skin to nourish and hydrate your skin even at the deepest levels. Using your cream twice a day will help make your skin glow from the inside out!

Salt and sugar scrubs will be one of the easiest and more effective ways to remove dead skin, help get the blood flowing to the surface, and smooth away any roughness.

One of our favorite DIY scrubs with sugar or salt is to mix it with a few drops of lemon juice, which will help clarify the skin, and then add some honey which will nourish and brighten the skin while the sugar and salt get to work exfoliating.
