Floral Home Facial for Sensitive Skin


Having sensitive skin means that your complexion is as delicate as a flower, and as vulnerable. Dryness, toxins, dead skin cells, bacteria, everything seems to cause a red, inflamed mess. It is time to use the healing power of nature's finest creatures in a calming home facial for sensitive skin. Try a rose and lavender skin treatment that is made with soothing cucumber and nourishing honey to get rid of that red, blotchy complexion.

Rose water acts as an astringent, tightening tissue and reducing dry skin. Lavender is great for its anti-inflammatory properties. Both flowers protect the skin from bacteria. Cucumber will dose the skin with beneficial nutrients, including vitamin C to boost collagen production. It also helps by reducing redness and inflammation. Honey is a humectant. It helps to lock in moisture — lots of moisture is key when dealing with delicate skin problems.

To make this floral home facial for sensitive skin you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon raw, organic honey
  • 1 teaspoon of rose water
  • 2 drops lavender essential oil
  • 2 to 3 inches of a medium cucumber, skin on
Toss everything into the blender for thirty seconds. For best results, start by opening and cleansing your pores with lavender steam. This will help the skin absorb the properties of the natural facial. Boil two cups of water and pour into a glass bowl. Add 3 drops of lavender essential oil. Keep your face over the steam for three minutes. Apply the face mask. Sit back and let the honey, cucumber, rose, and lavender rest on your face for about fifteen minutes. Rinse with tepid water. Your face will feel incredibly quenched and nourished. Apply a gentle moisturizer to finish the treatment.
