We all want that dewy, glowing skin. But regular micros and an intensive skin care regime can be expensive, and time consuming. Here are our top tips for achieving glowing skin greatness, for busy gals on a budget.
STEP ONE – CLEANSE with your Coco & Camila cleansing cloth
These miracle cleansing cloths are perfect for people who aren’t fussed with a whole lot of skin care products, people who wear makeup, and basically anyone who has a face. The best part about them is that they cleanse using only warm water, and you don’t need to add any product to them to work their magic. Take it into the shower with you and do a quick once over while you eat your toast, shave your legs, mentally plan out your outfit, yell at your husband and listen to your true crime podcast. (trust us this is totally doable)
A twin pack of cloths is just $29.95 and each cloth can be reused hundreds of times. They remove all of your makeup too, so don’t worry about restocking those disposable makeup removing wipes. (Planet Earth says thanks PS)
STEP TWO – STEAM with your Coco & Camila Botanical Steamtox
Facial steaming softens the surface of your skin, and draws out dirt and buildup from your pores, even stubborn blackheads. Steaming also triggers a thermo regulating response in which the blood vessels in the skin dilate, allowing more blood to flow to the skin, giving that dewy glow. Post-steam, your skin will be more receptive to other skincare treatments, plus it's a great way to relax. Those clean pores are now ready and waiting to absorb a serum or mask.
Book in a steam session once a week, ideally before bed. Use your Coco & Camila cleansing cloth for a quick cleanse, while you boil the kettle. Grab a heatproof bowl and add your Botanical Steamtox mix. Once the boiling water has cooled slightly, carefully pour over the Steamtox. Give it a gentle stir with a wooden spoon and let the mixture sit for 1-2 minutes. Drape a light towel over the back of your head, and create a steam tent over the bowl. Place your face close enough to the steam so that you can feel it on your face, but not uncomfortably close. Steam for 5-10 minutes.
Ladies with lash extensions please note! Pop on some goggles for your steam sesh to protect those lashes.
STEP THREE – SKIN TREAT yourself with esmi Skin Treat serum
If you’re going to splash out on one skin care product, esmi’s serums are our top pick. After a steaming session, your skin is plump and ripe to absorb all the goodness of esmi’s all natural serums. Gently rub your chosen serum into your skin in a circular, upwards motion. Now, pop yourself in bed and dream sweetly of the beautiful glowing skin that will greet you in the morning.
