If you live on the East Coast or Midwest, temperatures have been brutal. -30 to -17 degrees have been the norm for a few days. With that being said skincare is a priority. Heck, no matter the climate skincare should always be a priority.
So let's talk about what I'm using at the moment to keep my face glowing in this blistering cold.
I'm using Oshun Oasis Bentonite Clay Mask.
Bentonite Clay is composed of ash made from a volcano. Bentonite clay stems back far in history as a traditional healing method for protecting the body from disease. It is an odorless grey/cream color with an almost soft, very fine consistency. The clay has an ability to produce an " electrical charge". Hence why its advise to use non metal, when mixing the product. When it comes in contact with a toxin, chemical, or heavy metal, the clay will absorb the toxin and release its minerals for the body to use.
It has various uses. It can be used as a facial /hair mask (I use it to detox my daughter's hair), insect bits, detox bath, digestive problem etc. I like to mix the clay with apple cider vinegar (also good for skin) into a paste. I also add a tip of water. I leave the mask on for about 15-20 min. Once the clay begins to dry, you can feel it tingling. Don't be alarm, it is doing its job by removing the toxins. Then I wash my face and moisturize. Stay tuned for a quick video on how I use/mix the clay, and moisturize.
Oshun Oasis Moisturizing Glow Oil. Is my go to moisturizer.
It is a light weight formula made up of Rose Hip Seed Oil (Improves Scars & marks), Flaxseed Oil ( Beneficial for chronic skin conditions such as rosacea, acne, eczema, and psoriasis) and Avocado oil ( Replenish dry skin ). I use this everyday. Moisturizing your skin is so important whether you have normal/dry or oily skin. For my oily peeps, think of it as hydration for your skin. When you skip out on moisturizing, your skin will dry out and produce more oil, which can lead to breakouts. The key is to find a moisturizer, that won't clog your pores.
So there you have it a quick facial routine that your face and other parts of your body, will thank you for. Check out the video below of my well needed facial. These amazing products can be found on www.marienikole.com/shop.
Until next time, sending love and light your way!
