Aromatherapy Skin Cleansing Creams

Friday, November 6, 2009

Aromatherapy can help you to take care of your skin by mixing aromatherapy oils into your own cleansing creams and lotions. You will soon realize how much you can improve your overall appearance and well being without too much fuss and expense. Also, you will benefit from the soothing aromas of the oils.

1. Use your favorite un perfumed cleansing cream or milk.
2. Add any of the following aromatherapy oils, either singly or in combination for each skin type. The ratio is two drops of oil to every 4 fl oz (100 ml) of cleanser:
Normal skin: Rose, neroli, lavender, sandalwood
Dry skin: Chamomile, geranium, rose and ylang-ylang
Combination skin: Lavender, geranium
Chapped, cracked skin: Benzoin and chamomile
Hyper-sensitive skin: Chamomile, neroli, jasmine, rose
Broken capillaries: Neroli, rose, lemon and peppermint
3. Clean your skin morning and night. An effective cleansing routine will balance your skin, helping it to function properly. All skin types need to be cleansed twice a day. Beauty therapists found that a lot of clients who would not dream of going to bed without cleansing their skin don’t bother to do so in the morning. However, cleansing in the morning is really important. Your skin throws out toxic waste products while you sleep and if you apply moisturizer straight on to your skin, you are actually preventing this shedding process from being effective.

Follow these routines as suits your skin:

Normal skin cleansing:Morning: Use either a cleansing milk or a balanced cleansing bar.Evening: Remove make-up with cleansing milk then repeat with milk or a cleansing bar.Oily skin cleansing: Morning: Either use cleansing milk or a balanced cleansing bar, if you prefer to wash your face. Evening: First use a cleansing milk to remove all traces of make-up. Then wash your face with a balanced cleansing bar. Dry skin cleansing: Morning: Use a cleansing cream. Massage it into your face with your fingers thoroughly then remove.Evening: Use cleansing milk to remove make-up. Cleanse again using cleansing cream. Combination skin cleansing: Morning: As for oily skin, pay particular attention to nose, chin and forehead areas. Evening: As for oily skin, be gentle on your cheeks and if they are dry repeat the cleansing process with a milk cleanser rather than by washing your face. Hyper-sensitive skin cleansing: Morning: Use cleansing milk or cream specially made for very sensitive skin. Avoid skin washes. Evening: Remove make-up with a cleansing milk. Repeat the cleansing using a cream. Be gentle when removing cleanser.

Try some plain, old extra virgin olive oil to help condition your skin. A little bit goes a long ways on wet skin right out of the shower. Smear it all over and rubbing in, then you dry off the remaining water drops and get dressed. Just use a lot less.
