I frequently am asked what my daily skin care routine is, and so, will share it with you here. It really does not take a long time, five minutes tops, and is not only quick, but also very easy!
My Three Step Easy Natural Skincare Routine for Morning and Evening:
Step One: Cleanse
Procedure: Using a trickle of water, lather a small amount of soap lather onto your hands. Concentrating on the centre panel, massage the lather gently onto your face. Wash the soap off thoroughly with water. Pat dry with a towel. PS. If you have an excessively oily skin or are prone to acne, I suggest cleansing with the Carbon Soap every alternate day.
Benefits of Ingredients: Hypoallergenic, moisturising, balanced pH, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial.
Step Two: Tone
Products Required: Rosewater and Witch Hazel toner; cotton ball or pad.
Procedure: Spray the Rosewater and Witch Hazel solution onto a cotton pad and wipe the face gently, focusing on the nose and centre T-panel of the face.
Benefits of Ingredients: The primary active ingredients in witch hazel are the tannins, which have astringent properties that help to tighten and restore bloodvessel and skin tone. Rose water may be especially valuable for dry, sensitive and aging skin. They both have antiseptic properties, reduce redness and soothe irritated skin.
Step Three: Moisturise
Morning Procedure: Dip the finger tips of the other hand into the serum and apply to the face by starting at the outer corners of the eyes and swooping down under the eye towards the nose. (Going the other way, from the nose to the outer edge of the face, encourages wrinkles!).
Continue to dip the finger tips into the serum and apply to the neck, in an upward direction; eventually applying the remainder of the serum in your cupped hand to the neck and massage gently over the entire face. Leave to absorb for 10 minutes before applying any other make-up or Sunscreen.
Ingredient Benefits: Jojoba Oil is rich in minerals and Vitamins A, D and E; Rosehip Oil reduces scars, spots and blemishes; Avocado Oil stimulates collagen production and improves skin tone; 50% Active Elemental Plant-extracts from Rosemary, Ginkgo, Rumex and Plantago offer a comprehensive mix of nutrients for skin health.

Using a small amount on the finger tips, apply the Face Boost Balm to the face in the same way that you would apply the serum, as outlined above; always working from the outside of the face, towards the nose and up the neck and sides of the face, in order not to encourage the puckering of the skin to form wrinkles.
Benefits of Ingredients: This balm is rich, packed with nutrient benefits and best applied at night to allow for their absorption. Please let me know if you found this information helpful.
My next challenge would be to make a video to more easily demonstrate the application of these products.
If you think it would be a good idea for me to manufacture and sell the Rosewater and Witch Hazel toner, please let me know by leaving a comment below or by messaging me on our Facebook page.
