Beauty DIY: Hot Towel Treatment

Fall is in full swing, and with it, our mission to keep skin pampered and pristine. The struggle to hold onto moisture for your mug is like a tug of war between your face and the harsh cold and wind. But don't let the elements grab your glow. To help keep skin radiant and healthy, bring the spa home and indulge in a hot towel treatment.

Now when we say hot towel, most people think of the prep men typically get at the local barbershop before they get a close, clean shave. And you're right, this is what we're referring to, but the treatment isn't just for guys.

A hot towel works wonders. The steam and warmth from the towel truly agree with skin, helping the facial pores to open up and take in not only the steamy hydration from the towel, but any one of the many essential oils or natural beauty ingredients you can pair with it. Coconut oil, peppermint oil, neem, lavender oil, and rosemary are all great additions to apply to your towel to maximize results.

Once pores are open, skin will better absorb the formula you apply to treat blemishes, fight aging, or to simply keep your face soft. Acne acting up? Place a few small drops of coconut oil onto your towel before you heat it up to help combat breakouts. Looking for a deep cleanse? Spritz some of your facial toner onto your towel to penetrate past the skin's surface. Remix your towel and skin care formula to your liking, but pick a scent you love so it'll make for added aromatherapy too.

What else does an unassuming towel have in its power to boost your beauty? A hot towel treatment is a great headliner for a facial! Pores are already open, so keep the beauty time going and apply your favorite honey, clay, or pumpkin mask to nourish skin deeply.

To warm your towel, you can run it under hot water and wring it out, steam water in a kettle to pour over it, or simply warm a dampened towel in the microwave for 30 seconds. Make sure the warmth is safe to apply to your face.

Hold one end of the towel in each hand and place the center of the towel underneath your chin, wrapping the sides around your face, which will let your nose peak through comfortably to breath. Lay back and relax and let the towel do the rest! Planning on a hot towel treatment? Let us know with a note!
