Start November With A Skin Detox

FYBC 11:2Our skin could use a detox, especially after Halloween weekend. We most likely didn’t get enough sleep, possibly forgot to wash our faces before bed and definitely ate too much candy. All of the above can cause your skin to act out! To get your body and skin back on track, start this month with a little skin detox.

Start With The Facial

A professional grade facial is the best place to start, simply because it can clean your pores more thoroughly than your normal skin care regimen. Not to mention, they are relaxing! Here at FYBC, we offer an array of facials that will surely start your detox journey off right.

Use Steam To Clean Your Face

Steaming your face after cleansing allows the ingredients to better penetrate your pores and pull out more grime and dirt. If you don’t have a face steamer, a steamy shower works great too. If you are without a steam shower, boil a pot of water then transfer the water to a bowl. Place your face over the water then cover your head with a towel to lock in the steam. Stay covered for about 10 minutes.

Clay & Mud Masks

Formulas that contain clay and mud remove pollutants and impurities from the top layers of the skin. If you add a little water to your favorite clay or mud mask and keep the mask on until it is soft (not totally dry). TIP: The essentials oils in a mud mask will dry up if you keep it on until it cracks and dries.  

Hydrate (with Only Water!)

If your skin is crying for help, one of the best things you can do is drink more water. The daily recommended intake of water is around 91 ounces, although few people actually get this much. Not to mention that coffee, alcohol and sugary drinks further dehydrate the body. Although we love our wine and coffee, while your skin is in distress consider switching your morning cup of coffee with green tea.

Our skin and our body best respond to balance. Fuel your body with all the things you enjoy in life, just introduce them in a moderate manner. Your body will respond well to small changes and thank you later. For more information on our facials, contact us online today.

3 Ways To Add Pumpkin To Your Skin Care Routine

fybc 8:3

The transition from the summer heat to brisk fall weather can certainly take a toll on your skin. Although stocking up on a quality moisturizer is beneficial, the key to keeping your skin fresh and healthy may be sitting in your backyard. Autumn is the best time to take advantage of pumpkin and its skincare benefits.

Pumpkins offer the benefits like:

  • Help promote cell turnover
  • Brightens & smooths skin
  • Is a natural source of zinc which fights acne
  • High in fatty acids and vitamin E

Regardless of the skin type you have, pumpkin-based products can help! Here are a few ways to incorporating pumpkin into your fall skincare routine:

1. Pumpkin Spice Body Scrub

Everyone needs a good exfoliant! They are great for getting rid of dry, dead skin and can help bring back a natural glow. However, it is important to moisturize after any scrub.  If you don’t have a moisturizer, simply add a few teaspoons of rich plant oil to your Pumpkin Spice scrub recipe.

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup organic canned pumpkin (or homemade pumpkin puree)
  • Mix sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon together. Mix with pumpkin. Apply to skin and scrub in a circular motion, and rinse.

2. Pumpkin Puree Moisturizer

This moisturizer should be made in small batches because it will get moldy if left unused. It should be stored in the fridge

In a large bowl mix:

  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Store in the fridge and use just like a regular moisturizer!

3. Pumpkin Flesh Facial

It sounds a bit odd, but you can toss pumpkin puree right onto your skin and leave it be for several minutes and be doing some good for your skin.

If you have a little more time, try this facial:

  • 2 tablespoons of canned pumpkin (puréed)
  • 1 tablespoon of soy yogurt or ¼ teaspoon of soy milk
  • ½ teaspoon of brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cranberry juice or
  • ½ teaspoon oatmeal

Since autumn is the season of pumpkin, put it to good use! Try these DIY seasonal skin care treatments and let us know how you like them.
