How To... Use Facial Essence

How To... Use Facial Essence


We’re passionate about achieving your best ever skin - just 4 products and 4 steps to flawless – forever. These 'superhero' products are loaded with anti-oxidants to help repair cellular damage and fast-forward cell renewal, essential fatty acids to plump, polyphenols to tighten and collagen-stimulating natural vitamins for ‘springy’ skin.

Each formula works hard… but performs even better when it’s applied the slow ageing way using our unique ‘Skin-ergy self-massage’. Whenever you’re trying something new, it’s always easier if someone shows you how, so that’s why we came up with our handy ‘How To’ video guides. Created by our Co-Founder, Margot, Skin’ergy works with your internal energy channels to release blocked energy, stimulate glow-boosting blood, oxygen and lymph flow plus exercise facial muscles. It also ensures products are perfectly absorbed and activated, speeding them along their way to travel deeply into the skin, restoring and relighting it from within.

The series of flowing facial massage movements uses a medium pressure (this won’t ‘drag’ the skin), stimulating every part of your face to illuminate your complexion from the inside out. You’ll be sent a leaflet showing the ‘Skin’ergy self-massage’ steps when you order Facial Essence and Face Balm or you can watch our application videos on each product page.

Before you begin your Skin’ergy massage, ensure skin has been deeply cleansed using Essential Face Wash. The ‘squeaky clean’ sweep this wash delivers helps rev up the vitalising goodness of Facial Essence by a whopping 30%. Next apply 4-6 drops of the Essence (more if skin is really thirsty) into your palms; close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths. Then…

STEP 1 - Apply upwards and outwards with light but definite pressure.

STEP 2 - Massage up and down the meridian line.

STEP 3 - Massage palm from brow to forehead.

STEP 4 - Massage pads of fingers around the orbit of the eye.

STEP 5 - Sweep finger pads under the eye from side to side.

STEP 6 - Massage temples in an upward circular motion.

STEP 7 - Massage from nose; sweep down and outwards along the meridian line and up over cheek.

STEP 8 - Pinch fingers either side of the jawline, massage chin to ear.

STEP 9 – Three fingers on top lip, circular motion massage around mouth.

STEP 10 - Massage in circular motion across the top lip, repeat for bottom lip.

STEP 11 - Massage thumb and forefinger slowly up the neck and chin.

STEP 12 - Hand on opposite chest, massage up to shoulder, swap sides.


Choose your time

There are 3 different lengths of Skin’ergy routines to select from when applying the Essence, depending how much time you have. We have easy-to-follow videos for each:

  1. Skin’ergy Express (your speedy/morning routine) - 3 repeats per stroke, 12 steps, 60 seconds;
  2. Skin’ergy Evening (a longer routine before bed) - 6 repeats per stroke, 12 steps, 2 mins;
  3. Skin’ergy Treatment (an intensive treat 1-3 times a week) - 12 repeats per stroke, 12 steps, 5 mins.

Practise ‘Skin’ergy self-massage’ using Facial Essence at least every morning after cleansing and 4-6 times a week at night (Top tip: if skin is feeling parched, use it under Essential Balm before bed). Remember to have a little patience… very quickly the movements will feel second nature, with both your skin (and spirits) reaping the true benefits of taking it slow.

Essential Face Essence; it’s the second important step of your 4 to flawless.
