Soothing, relaxing, calming: A facial is great for your skin, as well as for your outlook. Treat your skin (and yourself) with any of the facial treatments on the following slides.
When your skin is at its most dried-out, pale, and tired, a steam treatment can bring back an unseasonably healthy glow. How? Moist heat hydrates skin, boosts circulation, and brings oxygen to the facial area. It also promotes skin clarity, but not because steam opens pores. Steam loosens debris and softens skin, so pores can unclog and appear less prominent.
Our at-home herbal steam is suitable for most skin types. If skin is severely broken out or inflamed, however, avoid steaming, as steam may aggravate these symptoms.
Rare is the occasion when your skin doesn't appreciate a little extra attention. The time is always right for a soothing and moisturizing facial. An at-home treatment designed by a leading holistic skin-care expert offers the perfect recipe for a healthy glow -- and inner calm. All that is required is lavender essential oil, a washcloth, almond butter, skin toner, and your choice of honey, yogurt, or avocado.
All facials, including traditional Chinese medicine and European ones, use gentle massage and pressure points to relax muscles. Try this routine for five minutes three to four times a week.
When you don't have time for a more elaborate facial, you can seal in moisture and protect skin from the elements with a simple recipe that highlights key natural ingredients. Witch hazel, an herbal astringent, helps tighten skin and reduce redness, while a fragrant blend of clary sage, grapefruit, and German chamomile essential oils soothes irritation and prevents blemishes.
