cosmetic facial treatment

Ladies, and/or submissives,
I am going to be spending almost a week with Katie over the Easter holiday. While there I would love to give her a facial as a gift. However, I have never given one. In fact, I've never seen one given.  Furthermore, I would like to give her a facial that incorporates natural ingredients into the cleansing, exfoliating, mask and moisturizing.

I come to you all with hands open and arms extended - begging, pleading, hoping, - well maybe not stooping that low - but hoping others will post their tried and true suggestions as to what and how I should do this.  I've also looked into aromatherapy as an adjunct as I want to make this a really cool experience and one that she wants me to do again.

Please post thoughts - I have lots of viewers but few commenters.  There is a lot of knowledge out there and on this one, I could use some helpful hints.
Until later,
I'm-hers

  1. Have to laugh, initially I thought you meant something else. Go to "youtube" and Google "how to give a facial" you will find all the instruction you require. Good luck.

  3. You could call it "cosmetic facial treatment", I guess.
    I must confess that my mind was in the gutter, too, or rather, I hadn't come across the cosmetic meaning of the word, before. And I don't have much experience with the treatment either, I'm afraid.

  4. Tamara,
    Thanks for the word choice. I took your advice and made the change. Now you need to have someone give you a cosmetic facial treatment and see if you enjoy it as well. After all, what's a domme's life for but to enjoy the fruits of your subs services :)

  6. What a wonderful idea :)

    Here are some ideas for you for natural homemade facials :) they can vary according to skin type, but this may help to get you started . . .

    Avocado Facial Recipe

    Avocado is a naturally rich moisturizer. Mash the meat of the avocado into a creamy texture. Massage into the face and neck . Leave on for 15 minutes and gently rinse off.

    Facial Mask Recipe

    Squeeze half a lemon and mix the juice with one beaten egg white. Leave on your face overnight or, for a quick pick-me-up, just 15 minutes. Splash warm water on your face to rinse.

    It helps to removes blotches, because the lemon works as a bleaching agent.


    Lighten Circles Under Eyes Recipe

    To lighten dark circles under your eyes, wrap a grated raw potato in cheesecloth and apply to eyelids for 15-20 minutes. Wipe off residue and apply an eye cream.

    Egg & Honey Mask Recipe

    Mix together 1 tablespoon honey, 1 egg yolk, 1/2 teaspoon almond oil and 1 tablespoon yogurt. Honey stimulates and smooths, egg and almond oil penetrate and moisturize, and yogurt refines and tightens pores.

    Egg, Avocado;Mud Facial Mask Recipe

    Clay is available in powder form at any health food store. Mix 1 tablespoon dry clay with 1 egg yolk, 1/4 of a mashed avocado and enough witch hazel to create a smooth mixture. Mud dries excess sebum while the egg yolk and avocado replenish lost moisture. Witch hazel tones.

    Facial Exfoliater Recipe

    ◦2 heaped tsp fine oatmeal
    ◦1 tsp. baking soda
    Combine ingredients, and add enough water to make a paste. Apply to skin and rub gently. Rinse and gently pat dry.

    Banana Wrinkle Fighter Recipe

    Banana is wonderful as an anti-wrinkle treatment. Mash 1/4 banana until very creamy. Spread all over face and leave for 15-20 minutes before rinsing off with warm water followed by a dash of cold. Gently pat dry.

    Grape Cleanser Recipe

    Grape juice makes an excellent cleanser for any skin type. Simply split one or two large grapes, remove pips and rub the flesh over face and neck. Rinse off with cool water.

    Oily Skin Mask Recipe

    Mix 1 tsp. brewer’s yeast with enough natural yogurt to make a thin mixture. Pat this thoroughly into all the oily areas and allow it to dry on the skin. After 15 – 20 minutes, rinse off with warm water, then cool water and blot dry.
