20-Minute Skin Care Routine

20-Minute Skin Care Routine

  1. Cleanse face with gentle cleanser to suit skin type, using a cotton ball or a washcloth.

  2. Steam face with head over bowl of steaming hot water for 2 minutes.

  3. Apply moisturizing, purifying face mask.

  4. Bathe or shower with a few drops of relaxing essential oil or invigorating oil in the water. You may also put used herbal tea bags, or cucumber or potato slices over your eyes to remove the bagginess around the eyes. Relax totally for 10 minutes.

  5. Pat body dry with thick warm towels. Apply body lotion all over while skin is still moist. Take special care of feet, knees, elbows, and neck.

  6. Remove mask with warm water and spray or splash face with mineral water.

  7. Apply eye-soothing gel (if you are going out) or night eye cream (if you are going to bed) around eyes and on lids.

  8. Apply moisturizer to face if going out, or your favorite night cream/oil if not.

  9. Apply hand cream and a nail cream around cuticles.
