Drier Than The Desert Calming Facial

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 144


1/4 cup oats
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/4 teaspoon olive oil
2 cups Rose Petals
2 1/2 cups purified water
1/4 cup almonds
1 egg
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons honey


For the Dry Skin Facial you will need all the ingredients above to create the cleanser, toner, scrub and mask. It is easiest to make all of your treatments first before starting. For this treatment youÕll need to have the Rose Water Toner prepared a few hours before you want to start your facial.

Step One: Oatmeal Dry Skin Cleanser - Mix together the oats, olive oil and yogurt in a small bowl. Gently massage onto your skin in circular motions for 1-2 minutes. Rinse face with cool water to remove.

Step Two: Rose Water Toner - Remove the rose petals from about 2-3 roses and rinse in cool water. Place the rose petals in a stockpot and pour purified water over. Stir a bit, as the petals may want to float on top of the water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling remove from heat and cover. Let the pot cool covered for at least 1 hour. Strain rose water into a clean jar or spray bottle. Spray directly onto the skin or soak into a cotton ball and then apply to the skin. For longer lasting rose water toner, refrigerate.

Step Three: Soothing Almond Scrub - Blend the egg and olive oil until you have a light yellow froth. In a food processor or blender grind your almonds into a fine meal. Mix the almond meal with at least 3 tbsp of your egg mixture. You can make the mixture thinner or thicker by adding or taking away the egg mixture. Gently massage onto clean dry skin. Leave the scrub on the skin for 10 minutes or less, and then rinse with cool water.

Step Four: Steam open your pores with a pot of boiling water. Splash your skin with a little hot water from the faucet.

Step Five: Hydrating Egg Honey Mask - Mix together egg yolk and honey until a light paste is formed. Apply to the face and neck using a paintbrush or fan brush, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 10-15 minutes and then rinse with cool water. Finish your facial by applying your favorite moisturizer.
