Friday Night And No Plans? Facial Time!

So it’s Friday night. The night you couldn’t wait for in the past, but as you get older and start nesting, it became refuge night. A night to stay in and do absolutely nothing. So to me it seems like the perfect time to put on some cozy clothes, I like a white t-shirt and undies, and give ourselves some facials. Werrrrk! It’s like a sleep over minus the secrets and crying over boys. Tonight facial is provided by Dr. Hauschka. I really love their products. I have very sensitive skin and have never had an issue with them. Dr. Hauschka makes my skin so smooth and clean that it actually radiates. I veer slightly off their recommended regimen, of course. Here goes the “Marko’s Tips” way.

First you’re gonna put a pot of water on the stove to boil. About 2 cups of water, who measures? I just eye it out. As that is getting heated up let’s prepare our Dr. Hauschka Clay Mask. I take about a tablespoon of the clay powder and mix it with filtered water. Add small amounts of water while stirring to create a melted ice cream consistency. Set it aside.

Now let’s wash our faces. I use Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Milk. This is my all time favorite face wash. I even shave with it. So let’s wash and then towel dry. If you want to read my post about shaving with Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Milk click HERE.

By now our water should be boiling. Let’s remove it from heat. Add 2 tablespoons of Dr. Hauschka Facial Steam Bath to your water. Put your face near but not too close with a towel over your head. The directions say 10- 15 minutes. Like Sweet Brown says “Ain’t nobody got time for that”. I say 2- 3 minutes is ample. I rotate my head around to make sure my face is getting an even amount of steam.

Now we take our  Dr. Hauschka Clay Mask and apply it to our face. Pop in a movie or just stare in the mirror and watch it dry for about 25-30 minutes and just let it take out the impurities.

Rinse off. I recommend using a wet cloth to make sure you get it all off. Pat dry your skin and follow with Dr. Hauschka Moisturizing Day Cream.

Hasn’t this been a lovely evening? Enjoy your soft clean skin.
