According to skincare specialist to the stars, Emma Hardie, you need to polish, feed and water your skin and mobilize facial tissue to give it that ‘Wow factor’ – To polish use a pinch of ground brown rice, mix with a drop of almond and essential lavender oil and gently massage on to the facial skin.
Splash on warm water and clean with a face cloth. To water add a couple of drops of lemon and lavender oils to a large bowl of boiling hot water, then cover your head with a towel to inhale the steam rising from this.
Then wetting a face cloth with icy cold water, dab on to the face and neck and hold it down for a while. To feed, make sure your diet is rich in Vitamin C (oranges, leafy greens and so on) and Omega 3 fatty acids (oily fish at least once a week). Mobilize by stretching the facial and neck muscles – after applying a moisturizer, stretch up your neck; stretch the lips and cheeks and so on. This helps release tension from the jaw, neck and shoulder muscles and helps to bring the radiance back to your skin.
