As I get older, I’ll be 50 in just under 5 weeks I’m noticing my skin is changing so I use a daily self care facial cleanse, tone and moisturise routine incorporating my favourite essential oil, frankincense.

Why Frankincense?

Frankincense has rejuvenating and revitalising properties, making it the perfect companion in skincare products and my skin could certainly do with a little of that at the moment lol.

I also use a Rosie Quartz Face Roller to help to improve blood circulation, overall skin tone, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eyes, eliminate toxins and promote lymphatic drainage. Sometimes I pop my face roller in the freezer so that it cools and smooths my skin, making it look and feel fresher quicker 😉

This is similar to the facial rollers we use at the centre for our Crystals Facial Massage sessions and CPD Workshops. My clients and graduates love receiving and giving this fabulous facial treatment.

With my Frankincense facial oil I give myself a mini facial massage, paying close attention to the muscles around my jaw line as I’m known to grind my teeth at night. The massage helps to release some of the tension in that area.

Facial yoga also helps to relieve some of that tension there too. Plus it’s amusing pulling funny faces at yourself in the mirror in a morning lol. Of course, drinking enough water and eating healthily goes along way to keeping the skin hydrated and nourished and that’s what I’ve been focusing on too. All part of my daily self care facial routine.

Don’t forget every Sunday I share a Self Care Sunday Idea to help you stay on track in terms of your own self care.
