So today is very exciting I was checking my emails yesterday morning and saw that Sammie had emailed me about guest posting! Well of course I agreed, I mean I love this girl. She is one of my newest blog friends, plus she is so sweet. I am thoroughly enjoying getting to know her, she is simply fabulous and a “tell it how it is sassy southern girl!” I hope you guys stop by her blog and check it out, I know I enjoy reading her posts daily!
Mix your oils. I use a mix of Castor, Sunflower Seed and Tea Tree Oils. It took me a few tries to get the right balance of oils. I mix mine every Sunday night and keep it in a little Tupperware container by my bathroom sink. (Make sure you wash your container at least once a week)
Turn the hot water on. It needs to be super hot. Place a washcloth in the hot water.
With your fingers, scoop some of the oil up and place start massaging into the skin on your face and neck.
Once you have covered your face in the oil, take the washcloth and ring out the excess water. It should basically be damp and hot.
Place it over your face. I usually leave it on my face until the cloth gets cold.
Repeat this process again.
Rinse the cloth out and start wiping your face with the cloth to remove the oil.
If you have particularly dry skin, take a dab (I usually just dip my finger tips in the bottle) of sunflower oil and rub into your skin like you would a moisturizer.
I didn’t experiment much with my oils once I found ones that worked for me. My personal combination (for the week) is:
2 tbsp Castor Oil (this can be found pretty much anywhere)
4 tbsp Sunflower Seed Oil (Usually found at Whole Foods or a health food place)
4 drops Tea Tree Oil (Whole Foods, or Amazon)
Tea Tree Oil acts as an astringent so use it very sparingly as it can be drying to your skin
Castor oil is much thicker and has really strong cleaning properties, it can be harsh on your skin so don’t think you need to use too much
