► Your oil or oil mixture
► One or two clean washcloths
► Warm/hot running water.
Start with clean hands. Place about a quarter size of your oil or oil mixture in your hands and rub them together. Now, massage the oil all over your face and neck in an upward motion.
This needs to be done for at least two minutes so close your eyes and really treat this as a massage. Massage the oil mixture into your face and neck and if that seems like forever try doing while it while watching TV or just relaxing.
Wash your hands to remove all oil before placing a clean washcloth in the clean sink or bowl with hot running water. Now we are going to slightly steam the skin. Warm or hot water but not too hot as you do not want to scald your face!
The hot water is opening up your pores. Lay the hot washcloth on your face and keep it there until it cools. Once cooled wipe the oil from your face and neck gently.
I have found that if I am wearing makeup I need to do this step twice with clean washcloths each time to make sure I’ve removed all traces of the makeup and dirt.
You may not need to follow with a moisturizer since some of the lovely oil will be left on your face. It’s really up to you. If you choose to use a moisturizer, a great one is rose hip seed oil* or even jojoba oil* or olive oil*.
