  • an exfoliating brush with natural fibers like sea sponge.
  • something to tie you hair off your face and neck.
 The type of products you use depends on your skin type, use trusted brands you know won't cause skin irritation and allergy. If anything on the list is new for you then search out advice on what is best for you to use.

The routine:
  1. Tie you hair up so no loose strands will get close to the skin. If you have a chance do nice things for your hair before continuing with this list. Dirty hair will rub against the skin later and possibly ruin some of your work here.
  2. Take the natural exfoliating brush and move it in circles on your dry skin. This is a great for exfoliating the skin while improving circulation and getting rid of dead skin.
  3. Take a shower and use the exfoliating cream on your face and neck. If you like you can use the brush for the body here too. 
  4. Use the moisturizing body wash on your body leaving your neck and face free.
  5. Directly after your shower get the natural oil and work into all areas of your of your body including the face and neck. Massaging the oil into the skin. If your hand can't glide over the skin you probably don't have enough oil on there. The dryer the skin the more you will use, as the skin simply laps up this new moisturization. 
  6. Get the smallest of the two towels and make it wet using water at a comfortable heat for holding but warm enough that you feel its warmth seep in. Find a relaxed place to sit or lay down with some soothing music, place the towel onto your face and neck creating as much contact with the towel as possible. Relax for 10 minutes, you can repeat this if you like with a newly warmed towel. 
  7. Once you are done, take the second dry towel and rub all the excess oil from your body. This step is great for the circulation. The better the circulation is underneath the skin the more it promotes healthy skin on top. 
  8. Moisturize your body leaving your neck and face free again. Put something on to keep warm.
  9. Take the wet towel and make it warm again, gently massaging you face and taking excess oil away. 
  10. Use a moisturizer for your face and neck, you can add your normal eye cream if you use one. Give this time to dry which can be helped by gently patting your eye area with your finger tips. Avoid rubbing the sensitive skin areas as this can cause more harm than good.
  11. And you are done. Feel free to make this a bedtime treat adding candles for a relaxing mood, heating up the oil to body temperature before using a candle oil burner or pimping it up with things you do in your normal routine. Adding a face mask can also be a great addition.
