What products do you use for a facial?

I share what products I use for an easeful facial routine at home to take care of your skin

 natural vegan skincare on your face

Facial routines and products are an individual choice based on what you feel supports your skin type, money comes into the choice, product ingredients, i.e is it natural? I hope by now vegan products are the most obvious solution, but do you also consider sustainability? Knowing that your creams will be washed off and end up in the ocean or do the containers end up in landfill? If you are like me and you love skincare, or whether you just want to slap on something you know will work best for both you and the planet, then have a read below, as I share what products I use for a facial in an easeful and simple way.

All the products I share are natural, organic where possible, award winning, vegan, made from a carbon neutral provider using sustainable packaging. I have been a lover of natural skincare as long as I can remember and offering luxury facials for over 5 years.

Cleanser – its there to remove dirt, make up and pollution. Its also there to cleanse your skin before you add any goodies to absorb into it, i.e serums or moisturiser, it also removes sebum to avoid build up of, wait for it *dramatic scary music*, blemishes.

I use Ringana cleanser which has some yummy goodies in like sesame oil, ginkgo, jojoba and almond kernel in. It is vegan, housed in packaging made out of corn starch, its the prefect texture for me to enjoy massaging into the skin and it feels very softening and soothing.

How to apply – Apply to damp face, neck and upper chest area, massage in for up to 1 minute, to remove eye make up, pop some on two cotton pads, hold it there for a bit before wiping and removing, rinse off with a warm flannel. 

My favourite product to use caring for you treatments

Toner – its there to remove cleanser, but also to tighten your pores if your skin is oily, and soothe the skin if its sensitive. I once heard to not use toner is like not cleaning your shower, over time the scale builds up. Toner helps to restore the skin barrier’s ideal, which is a slightly acidic environment.

I use – Ringana tonic calm, as sometimes other toners have caused my face to feel stingy, so this one is perfect for sensitive skin. It has active substances from lactic acid bacteria that supply the skin with moisture, natural balance and reduce skin irritations. It also has hibiscus flower which rejuvenates and betaine from sugar which protects the skin drying out. For oily skin and large pores you can try tonic pure.

How to apply – a few squirts on a cotton pad and wipe over face

Tonic calm what products do I use

Serum – floods the skin with maximum moisture for smooth skin, it hydrates and prevents dryness, fine lines and goes to the depth and level where needed. The molecules are often smaller than a moisturiser, so they reach a deeper level of skin to moisturise.

I use – Hydro serum in the day with fresh adds glow to protect in particular from pollution as I live in a city. In the evening I just use the Hydro serum.

How to apply – 1 pump of each and lightly apply with fingers over the face, neck and upper chest area, only apply around the eye area.

Hydrating serum for your skin Fresh glow to soothe with pollution

 

Moistuiser – A high-quality nourishing cream is “daily bread for the skin”. It supplies the skin not only with fats and hydration, but also contains substances that protect it from everyday stress factors and environmental influences.

I use Ringana medium moisturiser which is perfect for my normal to oily skin, they also do a light and a rich for more oily or dryer skin types. It contains the jiaogulan plant, which is also known as the immortality herb, it has an antioxidant effect and strengthens the skin barrier, it has substances from the rock rose to moisture in the skin and Cupuacu, mango and shea butter nourish the skin. Its also an award winning product!

How to apply – I apply after serum, both morning and night.

Amazing moisturiser caring for you

In the morning I wash with plain water and add serum and moisturiser, this suits my routine and skin, I very rarely wear make up and like the idea of not washing away natural oils on the skin, which is supportive in winter.

In the evening I use the cleaner, toner, hydro serum and moisturiser.

You can cleanse and tone both morning and evening should you wish to and I would encourage testing out what suits you best.

I haven’t mentioned exfoliator, eye serum, masks, lip balm, gua sha tools or face yoga, as I chose to keep this simple and I don’t use these items daily.

Just to touch on Nutricsometics – internal skin care health, is even more important, I eat plenty of vegetables and drink plenty of water, getting out in the fresh air and relaxation can all support with taking care of your skin too.

Happy home facialing.

Beauty skin hair and nails caps

The beauty and hair caps, are perfect for strengthening nails, hair and supporting the skin. I have vitiligo where the skin looses its pigment and I have white patches on my face, taking these have supported these to reduce and have made my hair grow and my nail stronger. Stressors and daily life can mean our bodies don’t always operate fully if something is using up energy, so this just felt like a natural support. It contains lush things like, SOD from melon extract, which reduces skin impurities and refines the skin. Hyaluronic acid ensures beautiful, even skin. Saw palm extract supports natural hair growth. Manganese and copper from buckwheat germ powder contribute to the formation of connective tissue. Zinc from buckwheat germ powder supports a healthy skin, hair and nail structure. Copper from buckwheat germ powder helps protect cells from oxidative stress, which plays a major role in skin aging.

Caring for you, an A to Z guide

In case you didnt know, caring for you, is one of my biggest passions, relaxing, squidging, aligning and supporting people to take good care of their health is soooo important. 

A – AROMATHERAPY I love essential oils, their unique aroma & powerful health properties. I create a tailor made blend & place them in an oil to soothe your aches & pains with the benefits of massage or place them in a moisturiser.

B – BOWEN TECHNIQUE an amazing realignment technique to support posture, free up tension, muscular restrictions, support healing injuries & pain reduction. It is very relaxing & can support with stress & wellbeing too.

E – EARS support our respiratory system, hearing & balance. Bowen can ease congestion symptoms & relieve blocked sinuses with amazing lymphatic drainage moves around the ear, jaw, forehead & neck.

Caring for you listening

F – FASCIA an amazing web like substance that surrounds all our muscles, ligaments, cells & organs. Bowen works over fascia, when a move is made, the stretch receptors send impulses to the brain which communicates to the specific muscles, resetting them to an original blueprint & providing realignment.

G – GALLBLADDER in Bowen Technique there is direct move over this super fat digesting organ, freeing up restriction & supporting with gallstones. I also support with diet/lifestyle tips such as reducing a fatty diet.

H – HOT STONES they are hot & get in nice & deep to the muscles. They also are great for supporting with detoxing the body.

I – INSOMNIA which happens to all of us & I would love to support you to ensure you have a nice bedtime routine. A relaxing treatment can ensure your body is in a balanced state.

J – JOJOBA OIL a great oil for oily skin. My fav is to combine it with Patchouli & Geranium, which balances the natural sebum production that the skin produces.

K – KIDNEYS Bowen Technique has an ace Kidney procedure which works directly over this incredible filtering organ to support with stress reduction & lower back pain. Reflexology can work over the Kidney/adrenal glands to support you working at your best.

L – LIVER get your Milk Thistle in pre & post drinking to cleanse your liver with any toxins. PS don’t drink more, this is a support as well as moderate drinking & drinking water into between alcoholic drinks.

M – MOISTURISE no matter what treatment you book in for, I can check out your skin & create a tailor homemade natural moisturiser for you with SPF 25 in whooo, go skin go!

N – NATURAL, O ORGANIC OIL whoo natural and organic oil benefiting our skin, reducing the impact on our liver has in detoxing products & supporting the environment. Orange flower facial oil, get a load of that rubbed into your skin smells so good!

P – PELVIS often this can be misaligned from poor posture, accident/injury or even childbirth. This often goes hand in hand with jaw misalignment & lower back pain. Bowen technique has a great move which can support alignment, also benefiting your knees & ankles too, as well as supporting the lymphatic system to flow freely.

Q – QUALITY from the towels, the treatment bed, the music you hear, the products you smell, the colour scheme, the health questions asked, the picture on the ceiling as you like back, all is considered to support you fully & provide a quality treatment & experience.
