So I started my facial care routine today..
Let me just say that if the next week is gonna be so good to my face then I will definitely stick to this routine for the long haul.
As part of this new routine I actually made rose water, yes Lovies I made rose water for this routine. This was my first time making it and found that it turned out pretty well (will do a separate post for how I made it)
Remember I mentioned moringa to you in my battle post? Turns out that combined with the rose water it makes an awesome cleanse for the face. So I made a paste with about a tablespoon of the rose water and about quarter cup moringa leaves.
So here goes the entire routine.
1. Wash – I started by washing my face with a white soap that we normally get from the neighbouring French countries. It gave my face a good wash and it felt nice and clean. I rinsed with cool water then lightly dabbed my face dry
2. Cleanse – I applied the moringa and rose water paste and left on for five to ten minutes. At this point I felt a little tingle, burning sensation.. think this might have been because I rubbed my face a bit too hard today with some tissue (*hides face*)… Oh and please note how I made sure those little pesties were well covered hahaha
3. Rinse – I rinsed using equal amounts of rose water and spring water (luckily we have that readily available in Dominica). I decided on the spring water because the tap water is too harsh with the added chlorine due to recent water issues… When done rinsing dab dry with a towel
4. Moisturize – I moisturized using a small amount of coconut oil and massaged it into my face for about two minutes
And voila!!! Short and sweet!!!
My face feels soooooooo good… I am just hoping that it helps with getting rid of those pesky pimples…
Looking forward to the next few days of this routine.
