Sunday for me has always been a day to reset, plan for the week ahead, and partake in some indulgent self care. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not always 3 hour bubble baths with exotic florals and herbs or pressing rose petals all over my face yearning for some kind of pore metamorphosis, it could simply be a burrito and Netflix binge, whatever is going to make me happy. Yesterday I decided to take some extra time out for my skin with French Girl Organics.
I have become a huge advocate for oils in the past few years, as they are extremely nourishing and packed with ingredients that help heal skin and increase moisture. Most people shy away from oil, especially if they are oily skin types as they fear it might cause them to be too shiny or greasy, but using oil on the skin actually helps your natural oil production stay in control instead of making it worse. When you strip your skin of natural oil it panics and overcompensates, causing it to produce more.
I used the cleansing oil, rose exfoliation powder, face oil and body oil yesterday and gave my skin a nourishing exfoliation treatment by adding a few drops of the oil with the exfoliant, gently massaging it all over my face then rinsing with warm water. Next, a few drops of the facial oil massaged into the skin, followed up by body oil everywhere (and I mean everywhere) to seal in the moisture. I love the way my skin looked and felt after, and wasn’t irritated after the exfoliation treatment.
Smooth, hydrated and dewy looking skin. I also smelled very chic, you know like the girl that when you ask her “What fragrance are you wearing? You smell amazing”, She just looks at you and says, “Oh that’s just how I naturally smell” and you’re left there like “cool”.
Yes, that kind of smell.
Are you willing to try face and body oils? C’mon it will be fun.
