Tailor Our Facial Care to Your Face

March 06, 2015

The Meow Meow Tweet Face Line is a complete regime formulated to protect and nourish delicate skin. 

Our core products are formulated with combination and blemish prone skin in mind, but they can be used for all skin types. While there is no such thing as anti-aging without a time machine, our unique blend of nutrient rich, antioxidant plant oils and essential oils will fortify the skin and promote healthy cell regeneration so that your face may pass through time with grace, looking its best. Made with certified organic and wildcrafted ingredients, you can rest assured that while healing and caring for your face you are indulging in a safe and nontoxic daily ritual that is pure and good for you. The below regimes are suggestions for a facial care regime based on skin type. Please keep in mind that skin can change seasonally with the weather and with various lifestyle shifts (stress, hormones and diet). We like to say, "listen to your skin" and tweak your regime according to what it tells you it needs. 

The MMT Face Regime by skin type:

Dry-
Cleanser and/or Makeup Remover, Exfoliant and/or Mask, Toner, Face + Body Cream 

AM: rinse face with luke warm water (10 splashes), massaging in an upward motion. While face is still wet apply face cream.
PM: wash with cleanser or makeup remover. Spray face liberally with toner. While face is still wet apply cream. Exfoliate or mask 2 to 3 times per week.

Normal/ Combo/ Oily-
The Whole Shebang (Cleanser, Exfoliant, Face Oil, Toner)
AM: rinse face with luke warm water (10 splashes), massaging in an upward motion, pat dry. Spray liberally with toner. While face is still wet apply face oil. (Notice you don't wash with cleanser here)
PM: Wash with cleanser, pat dry and spray liberally with toner. While face is still wet apply 2 to 3 drops of face oil. Exfoliate 2 to 3 times per week.

Blemish-Prone-
The Whole Shebang + Spot Serum

AM: same as above. 
PM: wash with cleanser, pat dry and spray liberally with toner. While face is still wet apply face oil. Exfoliate 2 to 3 times per week. Apply Spot Serum to blemishes up to five times per day over makeup.

Sensitive-
Makeup Remover with Face Oil or Face + Body Cream

AM: rinse face with water, while face is still wet apply a teeny bit of cream.
PM: apply cleansing oil liberally over dry face, massaging in an upward motion. Soak a washcloth in warm water and hold over face for 15 seconds. Wipe oil off. Moisten face with warm water. Apply a few drops of oil or cream over still wet face to moisturize further.
** this regime works well for those with rosacea, you may use our toner instead of wetting face with water in the PM routine.

Using Sunscreen-
A must! After toning, try mixing a dime size amount of sunscreen with two drops of our Face Oil in your hand and then apply to face and neck. If your sunscreen is thick, this mixture will thin it out a little making it easier to apply and your face will reap the benefits of the face oil too (which also has a natural spf of about 5). If you wear makeup, you can even mix a little of your own powdered tint into the face oil or cream. If you have a teeny jar, try mixing for the week to save time. DIY at it’s best!

An essential component of any Aryuvedic facial protocol is a facial massage and we wholeheartedly agree with this feel-good ritual. It increases circulation to your facial tissue, oxygenating the blood and encouraging the presence of fresh, healing red blood cells resulting in brighter looking skin. By relaxing muscles and connective tissue, massaging the face softens expression-induced lines and helps expel acne-causing toxins. As an added benefit, a good facial massage reduces stress, leaving you feeling peaceful and relaxed.
