Organic Facial Spa Ritual

Before you plan your next visit to the spa, take a look at this simple DIY (do-it-yourself) spa guide with detailed suggestions. Here's a great way to indulge in an amazing Organic Spa right in the privacy of your own home and also makes an awesome girl's night event. 

Step 1: Cleanse

You will need:
• 2 x cleansing cloths or cleansing pads
• Cotton pads
• A bowl of warm water (ceramic or glass)
• Cleanser (balancing, rejuvenating, purifying or soothing)

Gently press the face with a warm (never hot), soft cleansing cloth to open pores and soften the surface of the skin cells. Apply three
pumps of cleanser to the palm of your hand and massage gently into the face and neck.
Remove gently with water and cotton pads. If wearing make-up, a second cleanse is necessary. (First one to remove makeup, the
second to cleanse the skin). (167 applications per bottle @ 3 pumps per application)
Cleansing removes the top layer of dead cells, oil, perspiration and pollution. If your skin is not cleansed properly it becomes
dull and flaky and the oil glands block up with dirt and cellular waste, causing breakouts and congestion.

Step 2 – Exfoliate

You will need:

• A bowl of warm water
• A steamed towel (steam towel in rice cooker and soak in lemon myrtle shampoo/
hand soap, or soak under hot, running water and squeeze)
• Gentle Exfoliant or Garnet Exfoliant

Squeeze a small amount of exfoliant onto fingertips and GENTLY massage onto damp skin using a small circular motion, paying
particular attention to T-zone if necessary. (28 applications @ 1 teaspoon per application)
A build up of dead skin cells causes a rough and dull appearance. Removing the top layers of dehydrated cells oxygenates
the skin and speeds up the rate of cell growth, promoting a youthful, glowing skin.

Step 3 - Mask

You will need:

• Small ceramic/ glass bowl
• Fan brush/ artistic brush/ pastry brush
• Cleansing cloths
• Bowl of warm water
• Mineral Mask (balancing, rejuvenating, purifying or soothing)

Using the ceramic or glass bowl, make a smooth paste by mixing 1 tsp of purified water with 1 heaped tsp of mask powder. Stir to
form a smooth paste and smooth a generous amount of mask onto the face and neck using the fan/ artistic brush. Lie down with
your feet up and relax for 10-15 minutes, until mask is almost dry. Rinse off with plenty of tepid water and use the cleansing pads
to wipe off the mask. (10 applications @ 1 teaspoon per application.)
Clay-based masks will actually draw toxins from within the skin. Clay firms, tones and refines the skin, promoting a smooth,
supple, and clear complexion. Clay re-mineralises and re-balances the skin, assisting with tissue regeneration. Masks must
be followed by a Skin Conditioner and Moisturiser to prevent dehydration.

Step 4 - Skin Brightener

You will need:

• 2 x cotton buds
• Cotton pads
• Probiotic Skin Brightener

Apply the skin brightener to a cotton pad and wipe gently over the face and neck. Soak two cotton buds together so you can
concentrate on darker areas, sunspots and freckles. (125 applications @ 1 pump per application).
The extremely mild alpha-hydroxy acids from natural fermentation in the Probiotic Skin Brightener are known to restore and
protect the skin’s acid mantle, lighten and brighten the complexion, improve photo-damaged skin, exfoliate dead skin cells for
a smoother, less-wrinkled appearance, help break down impurities, whilst bringing moisture, clarity and vitality to the skin.

Step 5 – Skin Conditioner

You will need:

 • Skin Conditioner (balancing, rejuvenating, purifying or soothing)

On clean moist skin, massage 1 pump of conditioner gently onto face, throat and décolleté. Leave for a few seconds to absorb into
skin before moisturising. (125 applications @ 1 pump per application)
Skin Conditioning is a vital step in the miessence® skincare regime! Conditioning has a twofold purpose: firstly, to feed the skin
with nutrients in the water-soluble botanicals, organic herbs, vitamins and essential oils, and secondly, to provide a hydration
base for the moisturiser to lock in.

Step 6 – Treatment Gels

You will need:

 • Purifying Blemish Gel or Soothing Couperose Gel

Apply 1 pump of the Purifying Blemish Gel or Soothing Couperose Gel the fingertip and pat into affected areas. (120 applications
@ 1 pump per application)
Treatments are intense concentrations of botanical extracts for special skin needs. Soothing Couperose Gel is a strengthening
treatment for sensitive skin with ultra-soothing organic plant extracts for broken capillaries and facial redness. Purifying Blemish
Gel is a potent and powerful blend of healing and calming organic herbs and flowers for blemishes, pimples and irritations.

Step 7 – Ambrosia Essence – Ultra Rejuvenation Treatment

You will need:

 • Ambrosia Essence

Apply 1 pump of the Ambrosia Essence to the whole face and massage gently into
the skin. (60 applications @ 1 pump per application.)
Ambrosia Essence is an extremely potent combination of eight highly effective
herbal and flower extracts to rejuvenate, restore and renew the skin. Its
ingredients are renowned for their ability to stimulate the production of new skin
cells, which makes it an effective treatment for acne scars, dry and weathered
skin and mature, devitalised skin.

Step 8 – Moisturize

You will need:

• Moisturizer
(balancing, rejuvenating, purifying or soothing)
Apply 2 pumps of your moisturizer to the palm of your hand and warm to skin
temperature. Pat and press gently onto your face, throat and décolleté. (42
applications @ 2 pumps per application)
This step creates a protective barrier against free radicals and moisture loss
(one of the main causes of wrinkles). The special ingredients in our unique
organic base has demonstrated significant and lasting effects on skin hydration
and smoothness, and has been shown to actively restore and strengthen
damaged skin.

Step 9 – Serums

You will need:

 • Firming Eye and Neck Serum and Rejuvenessence Facial Serum

To use the Firming Eye and Neck Serum, pump a few drops into the palm of the hand, then using one finger, pat and smooth around
the total eye area (from outer to inner eye), then gently pat and press remainder of concentrate onto throat and décolleté.
To use the Rejuvenessence Facial Serum, apply 1 pump to the palm of the hand, warm to skin temperature, then gently pat and
press onto your face, throat and décolleté. Only use this if the skin is extra dry. (120 applications @ 1 pump per application.)
Serums lock in moisture and intensively nourish the skin. Rejuvenessence Facial Serum protects the skin and helps regenerate
and revitalise the complexion, especially in extreme heat, cold or windy conditions. Firming Eye and Neck Serum smooths,
tones and firms around the eyes and neck, diminishing the appearance of crow’s feet, visible fine lines and wrinkles.

Step 10 – Hydrate

You will need:

• Rose Monsoon Hydrating Mist

Holding the bottle at arm’s length, spray a gentle mist around the face to cleanse the aura, calm the soul and rehydrate the
complexion. (100 applications @ 3 pumps per application)

complexion. Perfect for rehydrating and invigorating your skin. Perfect for airconditioned environments, such as offices and
