Soap Free Face Routine

Here’s a million dollar question : How do your wash your face… with NO soap?

Faced with skin stripping soaps and a pressing question, Triiinity was determined to solve the riddle. We already opted for mild soaps and natural/well sourced soaps but even those can be a overly stripping of the natural oils in delicate face skin. They were even beginning to cause Triiini small dry patches and we couldn’t have that. So thus began the journey to find a gentler, more natural face washing method. After lengthy research and experimentation, we came to a combination and established a face routine that I plan to keep for a while to come.

Tools Needed:

Bentonite Clay

Honey

Apple Cider Vinegar

Face Pads/ Cotton pads

Natural oil

 

What to do?

Step 1: Bring bentonite clay and honey into a viscous paste like mixture {you may use a bowl or just mix it in your hand. For this I like to use Garner’s Garden Bentonite Clay. More honey than bentonite clay will give you the best ratio of ingredients to allow for proper spreading}

Step 2: Open your facial pores using a hot towel

Step 3: Spread mixture all over your face, massaging as you spread & allow it to sit {2 to 5 minutes is more than sufficient, though if you decide to let it sit longer it won’t hurt}

Step 4: Rinse with warm water until face is fully free of substance.

Step 5: Use cotton face pad to apply apple cider vinegar to your face {this step closes your pores while adding the skin benefits of acv}

Step 6: Finish by applying a dime sized amount of natural oil to your face. {I use a homemade mixture of coconut oil, olive oil, & rosemary} . Let the oil soak in before applying any makeup.

Honey, Bentonite Clay, & ACV are 100% natural ingredients with natural detoxifying effects and amazing skin benefits! Together they make the perfect facial cleanser. Keeping the skin at the proper oil balance {especially using oils that boasts their own skin benefits} aids in anti aging effects, so once youve applied your natural oil…you’re unstoppable!

In the past few months of doing this routine, I have seen such an increase in the quality & lusterous smoothness of my skin. It’s always glowing & it feels like I’ve snapped every pore into prime position! Now I might look like a monster every morning when I was my face, but the end result is well worth it.

SN: Did you know honey & coffee are both naturally occurring substances that are good for your skin? Coffee has anti-aging properties as it tightens and tones the skin while mutually stimulating the skin, bringing increased circulation. Honey is humectant, so it is perfect for bringing natural moisturization. It also has anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal properties that are perfect for fighting acne. You can mix these ingredients without the use of a store bought facial mask or in addition to one and follow the steps below for amazing skin benefits!

Step 1: Mix Ingredients
{stir until mixture becomes a fine paste}

Step 2: Apply Mixture
{It is best to do this while laying down, over a towel to avoid any drippy carnage. Feel free to use your hands for application but I found this application best done with a utensil liken to a Popsicle stick shape. So a mixing stick or even the flat side of a butter knife would work fine to apply the proper spreading. I like it best when I apply a coating, let it dry for a minute or two, and then go back and apply another for a nice thick facial layer.}

Step 3: Wear Facial
{Relax and let the properties take hold. I recommend you let the mixture sit on your face for about 15-20 minutes before rinsing, for maximum benefits.}

Step 4: Rinse

{Rinse mixture away with warm water. Then rinse with cool to lock the amazing effects into your pores}

Step 5: Moisturize & Enjoy Your Glow!
{Seal your skin with a light moisturizer. Enjoy the glowing effects of your after-facial radiance!}
