Kate Somerville’s At Home Facial Demonstration

February 19, 2008 at 8:48 am 4 comments

I have only heard positive reviews about Kate Somerville’s skincare line.  In this video, Kate is demonstrating her own homemade facial recipies and techniques.   I love how easy and simple this facial is!

All of the ingredients for this facial can be found at your local grocery store: 

  • plain yogurt (lactic acid for chemcial exfoliation) 
  • ground flax seed meal (for physical exfoliation)
  • Brewer’s yeast – eliminates oils, stimulates skin cell, and kills bacteria
  • avocado – provides natural oils, moisturizer

Kate describes that we have different “Eco Systems” of the Skin. 

  • Only use the Brewer’s yeast mask where you have acne and are oily.  
  • Kate does not recommend using avocado directly onto acne-prone skin; only use on areas of your face where you are dry and needing moisture.

Caution:  Natural products can sometimes cause skin allergies, always do a patch test, and do not try new products like these shortly before a big outing or event (like your wedding, a big date, or the Oscars)!

Have fun with this homemade facial and let me know how things go!

    Yeah, I had better not try this either. You know I’ll be there rubbing elbows with the rich and famous. (yeah, right, in my dreams…)

    Great recipes! It’s fun to play beauty chemist in the kitchen!
