You can have soft, fresh looking skin with our Stimulite® Spa products and ingredients you have at home.
Give yourself a facial, complete with stimulating massage with our SpaCells® facial sponge, fresh lemon wedge and a teaspoon of honey. Here's how:
Use the white honeycomb side of your SpaCells facial sponge to clean your skin with a mild cleanser. The flexing action of the honeycomb cells gently and completely removes make-up and dirt, even in hard to reach areas like the creases around the nose. Be sure to include your neck and eyes. Don't apply pressure; let the honeycomb cells gently clean these sensitive areas. The cells are soft and non-abrasive.
Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. Now your skin is truly clean. Super clean and dry skin is a must before beginning any exfoliation.* Take a fresh lemon wedge, squeeze the juice onto a cotton ball and apply it to your face and neck. After a few seconds you should feel a tingling sensation. (At any time, if the sensation is too intense, rinse with water.) Gradually, the tingling will disappear. Once your skin is dry, use the white or colored side of SpaCells to gently abrade areas of hyperpigmentation. Be gentle. Do not apply pressure, but let the SpaCells do the work.
Now that you've removed the dead skin cells, it's time to feed your skin. Put a teaspoon of honey in the palm of your hand. Add a little water and spread the honey over your face and neck. The honey will feed your skin like a nourishing masque. If you can allow yourself 5-15 minutes of relaxation, this is the time to do it. Find a comfortable spot to lie down, or better yet, lie on our Stimulite® Wellness® and Lounge Mat and let the cells stimulate blood flow as you relax and allow the honey masque to nourish your skin. Focus on your breathing with long, slow inhales and exhales through the nose.
After a brief relaxation and with the honey masque still on your face, use the SpaCells to give yourself a stimulating facial massage. See diagram:
Beginning with your forehead, use the colored side of SpaCells to apply light pressure along the facial muscles, following the contours of your face. With circular motions, move across your face, holding for 3-5 seconds at key pressure points such as between the brows, the inner and outer corners of the eyes, the corners of the mouth and the collarbone.
When you have finished the massage, rinse off the honey masque and pat your skin dry. Your skin is now clean, nourished, fully oxygenated and glowing! Be sure to thoroughly rinse your SpaCells facial sponge, shake out excess water and air dry in the open.
