Chemical Free Facials

in Skin

The whole point of a facial is to deep clean your skin, remove oil and dirt and allow natural skin regeneration.  Using chemical or synthetic ingredients to do this can cause more harm than good.  

Many consumers have come to realize that technology and science has bulldozed its way into cosmetics without analyzing the long term effects some of these so called miracle ingredients can cause.  Applying toxins and chemicals to your face might give a short term illusion of better skin, but the effects don't last, and many of the consequences are dangerous and unhealthy.

Oddly enough, some of the oldest skin care remedies have been renewed as the buying public look for alternatives to harsh skin care products.  We see a trend toward non-invasive and organic supplements that naturally improve our appearance.  Some of the simplest and most effective methods to deep clean your skin, are tried and true remedies from your grandmother's kitchen.

Deep Clean with Steam:  Sophia Loren, the famous actress known for her immense beauty, once stated that nothing opens the pores like a steaming plate of spaghetti.  Steam, is in fact, one of the best ways to open pores and allow for the removal of built up oil and dirt.  

Using freshly boiled water in a bowl, simply drape a towel over your head and hold your face over the bowl to allow the steam to penetrate and open up your pores.  This method has been used for centuries, and it's the safest and most reliable way to open pores.  You'll notice an immediate reduction in blackheads as your skin is opened to allow the disposal of oil and debris.  

Applying the cleanser of your choice after your steam will allow the product to penetrate the skin and remove any toxins and dirt.  Make sure you rinse well, so no traces are left behind.  Follow the natural pore opening process with the natural closing process.  That is of-course, cold.  

Rinse your face by splashing it with very cold water (as cold as you can stand) at least ten times.  This is critical to close the pores and prevent make up, dirt or other contaminants from entering through the pores.  When you are done, you're left with clean, wholesome skin.
