THE BEST THINGS ARE DONE AT HOME!

THE BEST THINGS ARE DONE AT HOME!

When you have a rough week, it’s good to take care of yourself to feel good for the next day. Thursdays are my days for self-care; this is the time for me to put my phone on airplane mode, listen to some 90’s R&B, and give myself a spa treatment. I don’t know about you, but an at-home Facial before the weekend is what I need to feel refresh and rejuvenated. I tried a new Simple Skin Regimen from the JNL Naturals Shine collection. This kit consisted of a cleansing bar, Lip Balm, Face Salve, and Konjac Sponge. Let’s see how everything worked on this night of self-care.

Face and Body Cleansing Bar

There’s a saying to never use the same cleanser for your body and face. But, JNL Naturals put those stereotypes to rest with their unique Face and Body cleanser that has seven organic ingredients found in your home to cleanse your skin without any irritation. To start self-care Thursday, I took a shower, paired the cleansing bar with JNL Natural’s bamboo loofah to exfoliate my skin, gently applied the bar to my face, and washed in a circular motion until my face felt squeaky clean. The smell was light and didn’t contain any fragrance. The consistency of the product was excellent and didn’t break out my skin. My face felt prepared for the next step of my skincare regimen using the Konjac Sponge.

My Favorite Ingredients
Grapefruit Essential Oil- prevents and treats skin conditions like acne
Litsea Essential Oil- helps to balance sebum production.

Our skin is constantly under attack with environmental stresses and toxins every day when we leave the house, so it is essential to exfoliate at least twice a week. JNL Natural has created the Konjac Sponge that is gentle enough to use on a baby’s skin but powerful enough to slough off dead skin cells to get that smooth and glowing complexion. After cleansing my skin, I placed the sponge under water and squeezed the water out; I gently rotated the sponge on my face in a circular motion and then applied the face salve.

My Favorite Ingredient
Cherry Blossom Powder- helps cleanse the body of impurities, suppresses toxins that speed up skin aging, lightens hyperpigmentation, clarifies uneven skin, and repairs damaged skin.

Face Salve

This face salve creates better skin for the next day and added the appropriate moisture to my dry spot without having my skin look and feel super oily. The following day, I woke up to smooth and hydrated skin.
