Spa-at-Home: Radiance Facial Ritual to do at home
HOW TO GIVE YOURSELF A RADIANCE FACIAL – By the skincare experts at Temple Spa & our relaxation experts at Utopia Spa
Our environment can play havoc with our complexion no matter what the season. Now with most of us staying indoors, and a lack of fresh spring air, our skin can easily feel dull and dehydrated. Add to this not drinking enough water and it can all add up to a parched, rough and dulling skin tone.
Help is at hand with our 4-step skincare ritual that restores hydration, delivers a smoother skin feel and turns up the radiance. You’ll feel like you’ve had a Utopia Spa day in no-time!
First things first – let’s the set the scene. You can fly solo or bring in your SO or perhaps the whole family to enjoy this ritual, but depending on the mood you’re going for we would favour turning the lights down and lighting some candles. Make sure the space you are in is warm and switch off any digital distractions – although some background music is always welcome and will help you tune out of the outside and tune in to you.
What you’ll need – Four Temple Spa products (which neatly we’ve prepared as hamper for you here) ‘In the Beginning’ cleanser, ‘Quench’ mask, ‘Toning Essence’ toner & ‘Repose’ moisturiser, a cotton/textured face cloth, and if you want an authentic spa experience, two soft paint brushes (unused) or pastry brushes.
STEP 1. CLEANSE & smooth with IN THE BEGINNING with clever melting beads that buff-away flaky, dull skin. Our best cleanser for make-up wearers, all skin types but especially dry skin or for skin that’s lost its sparkle. Apply with fingers in small circular motions, working from the neck up, and remove with your face cloth – which for a professional touch, we recommend to run the cloth under warm water before removing the mask for a ‘hot cloth cleanse’ effect.
STEP 2. HYDRATE & restore your thirsty skin with our 20-minute mask QUENCH that delivers deep down hydration. For a professional touch, apply the mask with the paint brushes or pastry brush – yes really! (although in the industry we use mask brushes as you would expect). Paint your face with the mask and if you can talk your SO into it, have them apply the mask with two brushes, working symmetrically painting from the neck and decollete upwards – bliss! PS – you can leave this mask on overnight too for a real drench treatment.
STEP 3. BALANCE & refresh with a spritz of TONING ESSENCE mist toner that preps your skin for more treatment.
STEP 4. NOURISH & replenish deep down with REPOSE aromatherapy moisturiser, great as a night time moisturiser for a good nights sleep or as a day-time skin resting treat. Again, you can apply with the brushes if you enjoyed the sensation, or with finger tips in small circular motions from the neck and decollete upwards.
Enjoy feeling hydrated with radiant skin once more!
