A beginners Guide To A Natural Beauty Routine
Your skin care routine doesn't have to be complicated, nor should it be seen as a tedious chore. Simplicity is at the heart of our formulations, as it is with the application of our products.
So whether you're new to a skincare routine or just looking to improve on your own, let this be your guide on how to turn it into a self-care ritual.
Start your ritual with a gentle cleanse and exfoliation using our Oat & Chamomile Cleansing Polish. Made with a base of natural Bentonite clay and formulated with face scrubbing natural exfoliants to deep clean clogged pores without over-drying skin, it is an ideal physical exfoliator that's also gentle enough for sensitive skin.
To use, wet hands and create a thin paste by combining a penny-sized amount of cleansing polish with water in your palm. Massage across your face and neck, using upward circular motions starting at the base of your neck and working your way to your temples. From there, move to the bridge of your nose and draw a heart-shape across your face with your fingertips, using light pressure and ending at your chin. Rinse clean with water when you're done. Pro tip: lather a liquid or foaming cleanser in with our cleansing polish and water for a luxurious and intensive deep clean.
Our hydrosol face mist is both refreshing and balancing for the skin, and allows for deeper penetration of other serums and moisturising products after cleansing. Our Aloe, Rose and Hibiscus face mist is best used to calm and prep your skin for hydration. To apply, spritz your face after cleansing and carry out your moisturising routine while skin is still damp.
Ritualise the action by mindfully breathing in through your nose while you spritz. The low ambient concentration of the hydrosols that are inhaled can help to revitalise your senses.
Feed your skin the essential vitamins and antioxidants found in pure plant oils, used to correct skin imbalances and helps to regenerate your skin's ability to heal. Face oil should always be used as the final step of your skin care routine, since it is the product with the thickest consistency. Our Rosehip Seed & Avocado face oil is rich in antioxidants and moisturising vitamin e, that will work to lock in moisturise and protect your skin against environmental factors like wind and pollution.
To use, warm 3 - 6 drops of oil between your fingertips and drum your fingers across your face and neck until the product is fully absorbed. Focus on patting areas of tension, like your sinuses, temples and jawline. And remember to breathe deep the soothing lavender scent.
Every so often your skin needs a treatment boost and you need time to unwind. The best way to get both done in one sitting is by using a face mask. Our Turmeric & Activated Charcoal Face Mask soothes, brightens and detoxes the skin. The dry formula needs to be activated with fresh ingredients for you to fully treat your skin to the Deity experience. The entire process is a self-care ritual and one you'll want to do as often as possible.
To make a fresh face mask add one teaspoon of coconut water, one teaspoon of honey and yogurt respectively to one spoonful of the Deity Skin face mask powder and form a paste. Smear onto clean skin and relax for 10 - 15 minutes. Brew a cup of tea, jot down your thoughts or read the next chapter of your book.
