Skincare is one of the quite important functions of aromatherapy, although many people think of aromatherapy as just a skincare method.
Essential oils, flower essences, fresh fruits, almonds, honey, and other fresh natural substances are suitable for all skin types and can also treat various skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
A typical aromatherapy procedure for the face (if the skin is in good health and there are no specific skin conditions) is as follows: a thorough cleansing of the face with a mild plant-based cream or milk, followed by a special face, neck, shoulder and scalp massage.
The massage is the most important step in the whole care process and is performed according to the condition of the skin at the time so that the most suitable oils for the skin (the condition of the skin varies from day to day) can pass through the outer layer of dead cells and work on the lower layer of living cells.
Some therapists are trained to select the most appropriate oil for the skin condition of the person being massaged.
After the massage, the aromatherapist may apply a hot compress to the client’s face to help the skin absorb the oils, or use a variety of natural botanicals such as fresh strawberries and seasonal fruits, or avocado puree.
Some aromatherapists, especially those who specialize in skincare in skincare centers, may use commercially available compresses.
But I think it is best not to use and not necessary. Regardless of the added expense of using such products, I think it’s effective to use products made from fresh fruits or other plants.
Remember the closer to natural substances, the better for us.
Let the compresses stay on your face for about 10 minutes, then remove these compresses, then gently apply rose puree or orange blossom puree to your face and neck, followed by a thin layer of cream to prevent your skin from being damaged by other substances in the environment.
In addition, the aromatherapist may give the client some appropriate essential oil creams or other essential oil products to use at home.
Most skin care procedures follow these steps, but some modifications may be made depending on the aromatherapist’s unique treatment style, or the particular circumstances of the client’s skin.
If the aromatherapist has oily skin or suffers from acne, a “steam with essential oils” is added to the skincare routine.
It is easy to make your own aromatherapy ointment, lotion or lotion at home using essential oils, beeswax, cocoa butter and nectar, and the steps and amounts of each ingredient are documented in other sections of this book.
People have been known to use this method to make a variety of skin care products for thousands of years, and it has been proven that these products do help the skin safely.
Some homemade skincare products are made with ingredients similar to those used by our great-grandmothers, and these products can be found on the market these days, but with a few minerals and animal ingredients added to them.
Some minerals can harm the human body, and we should not use animal products based on the principle of animal care.
Therefore, it is better to use essential oils and other botanicals to make skincare products than to buy finished products.
In addition, homemade skincare products are definitely less expensive than buying finished products, and we can know exactly what is in each bottle.
Of course, skin care is not limited to the “skin of the face”, but we just pay more attention to the face.
The face is constantly exposed to weather, environmental pollutants, air conditioning systems, or other damaging factors, and people are always more aware of the state of their face, which is probably why it is so important.
Whether it is massage, creams, lotions, or aromatic baths, various aromatherapy treatments are very helpful for the whole body.
Apart from the face, the skin of our hands is probably the most important thing we need to take care of. It is very easy to make your own practical and effective hand cream.
Some aromatherapists have special training or specialize in the application of aromatherapy to skin care, and we should recognize their expertise.
It is very relaxing and enjoyable for the person being massaged to be cared for, massaged, and cared for by the aromatherapist throughout the skincare process.
From this point of view, the aromatherapist can provide a very beneficial psychological treatment in addition to the physical treatment that helps the skin.
There are many different types of essential oils that are beneficial for the skin, which we will cover in the section on different skin types and skin problems.
You can learn more about the function of the skin and how essential oils interact with it.
