7 Day Brighter Skin Plan
Step #1 – Bedtime Double Cleanse
Have you ever double cleansed? It sounds like an uncessary step. Why cleanse again, after you’ve cleansed?
Here’s the secret: When you double cleanse, you’re digging deep into the layers of skin that haven’t been touched by the first cleanse.
Meaning: you’re going to have cleaner, brighter looking skin!
Tip: Follow every single step, every night for 7 days!
Servings: 1 person
Pour all of the ingredients into a small mixing bowl, and whisk it up.
Using your funnel, pour into a small spray bottle.
When cleansing, splash water on your face, then spray, rubbing it into all areas of face, being careful to avoid the eye area. Massage it in gently using your ring fingers. Allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes, then using a soft washcloth, using warm-hot water, rinse off.
REPEAT! Double cleansing really helps to remove all pollutants, toxins and radicals.
NOTE; store this in the fridge for a refreshing and cooling feeling to combat and soothe any inflammation or irrititation!
Step #2 – Exfoliate With CBD Scrub
The next step, now that your skin is deeply double cleansed, is to exfoliate.
Exfoliation or scrubbing your face gently helps to buff off any pesky travelers who weren’t invited to your face!
For example: dust, dirt, make up, or anything your cleanse may have forgotten to remove. So the next essential step is to scrub-a-dub-dub!
Here’s our DIY recipe below, but if you prefer, you can purchase a quality CBD facial scrub too. It will save time, for sure!
While the oils temperature are back at room temperature, add in the sugar, coloring, chopped orange peel and essential oils.
Use a hand mixer to mix well and seal in mason jar.
Apply to the skin and scrub very gently. Wash off snd follow with a facial moisturizer.
Step #3 – Mask
They key to masking is not quantity, but quality.
You may see those over-the-counter fun and inviting facial masks in a packet, but they don’t always do the trick and are sometimes made of low-quality ingredients.
You can create your own CBD face mask at home and feel confident that you know exactly what you are putting on your skin!
Step #4 – Tone It Down!
Why is toner such an important and often skipped step in skincare?
It’s because not enough people understand why it’s so crucial!
Skin toner is oftentimes a gentle spray or liquid application that reduces oil, and shrinks pores.
Toner can also help with acne, wrinkles, ageing, and dry skin. It’s hydrating and neccessary for those of us experiencing cold weather!

Strain your petals and peels, and put the liquid into a food processor or blender.

Blend it all up, and put back into saucepan.
Remove from heat, let cool down for about 15 minutes, and place into your spray bottle.
Keep it in the fridge for up to 2 weeks approximately, for a cool, fresh mist!
Step #5 – CBD Facial Serum
Serum is made up of smaller molecules that can penetrate deeply into your skin.
Serum is a great tool for targeting specific skincare concerns, like wrinkles.
I’ve noticed a massive difference since using CBD serum daily! Even my crows feet ( thank you 40!) have decreased.

Fork or small whisk
Combine all ingredients together into a bowl, and whisk gently or mix with fork.
using your funnel, pour gently into amber dropper bottle.
use 4-5 drops per use, and gently massage into face after you’ve cleansed, scrubbed, masked, and toned. Use your ring fingers and apply using gentle circles. Avoid eye area and under eye areas.
Step #6 – CBD Facial Moisturizer
One of the last steps is to moisturize and seal in all of the hard work you’ve done!
Moisturizer also acts as a barrier from allowing anymore airborne particles into the skin. Even the cleanest of pillow cases can contain oils from skin and hair which could irritate your skin.
Think of moisturizer as a means to seal the deal!

Step #7 – CBD Eye Cream
Eye Cream should be the last and final stage of your CBD bedtime routine.
Hopefully, you’ve avoided the eye-area until now. The skin underneath the eye is extremely delicate and thin. You never want to rub, irritate or pull.
This cause wrinkles and puffiness – not a sexy look!
