Facial Care Calendar
We get it – we all need reminders! That’s why Siri and Alexa exist, right? Consider this your one-stop reminder for all the skincare things! Because the benefits of your professional treatments depend greatly on what you do every day at home, Anjou Spa has planned out a facial care calendar to help map it out for you. Find skin care routine suggestions for at home and recommendations for professional spa treatments. You don’t even have to think about it! We have a charming calendar you can download and print. The facial care calendar lists everything to do for your skin each month. If you follow us on Instagram, we’ll be posting reminders in our Stories!
Daily Skin Care:
Your at-home skincare routine is like going to the gym. It keeps the cells in your skin moving and turning over. This helps to keep your skin healthy and radiant.
Cleanse in the morning to remove any accumulated nighttime oils or lingering makeup. If you want to add in an exfoliation, you can add your exfoliant right into your cleanser for a 2-in-1 timesaver. Follow with a toner, and then apply eye treatments and facial serums. Seal everything in with a moisturizer. This whole routine may sound involved, but really, it takes less than 10 minutes! If you want to save even more time, you can do the cleansing/exfoliating step in the shower.
Our recommended products from Eminence: Lemon Cleanser, Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant (*don’t store this product in the shower stall!), Birch Water Purifying Essence, Cucumber Eye Gel, Strawberry Rhubarb Serum, Guava and Bamboo Moisturizer
If you don’t want to cleanse in the morning, it is recommended that you make night time cleansing a priority. Cleansing at night helps to remove makeup and prep your skin for the rest of the routine.
In drier climates (like Bend!) it’s important to exfoliate on a regular basis. Many of our staff and clients find that they need to exfoliate daily after moving to Central Oregon. Follow with a toner to regulate the pH of your skin, then optionally, you can add an eye treatment or serum and a nighttime serum before sealing everything in with a nighttime moisturizer. For moisturizing at night, choose a heavier product to give your skin some extra overnight protection.
Our recommended products from Eminence: Stone Crop Gel Wash, Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant, Birch Water Purifying Essence, Wild Plum Eye Cream, Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil, Jasmine and Tangerine Age-Defying Night Cream
Weekly Skin Care:
Mask at home:
Masks can be done as often as you like but we find that 1-2 times a week is perfect. We like to have “Mask Mondays” and make this a fun relaxing way to start the week. Consider switching up your mask depending on your skincare needs and the season. Try alternating between moisturizing and clarifying masks. Many masks can be slept in as well, like the super-hydrating Snow Mushroom and Reishi Masque from Eminence. There many options out there for masks – from pretty rose lace sheet masks to detoxifying clay masks. Don’t forget to apply sheet masks with a jade roller for extra skin plumping and detoxifying effects.
Our recommended products from Eminence: Snow Mushroom and Reishi Masque, Clear Skin Probiotic Masque, Eight Greens Phyto Masque
Deep Exfoliation + Peel at home:
Get prepped for your weekend without worrying about dry itchy skin. Start the weekend clean and fresh and schedule some at-home exfoliation or a peel on Thursday nights. Make it fun and invite a few friends over, put on Netflix or pour a beverage and enjoy some supreme self-care!
Our recommended products from Eminence: Stone Crop Oxygenating Fizzofoliant and the Yam and Pumpkin Enzyme Peel
Self Care Ritual:
Do a longer self-care ritual when you have time on the weekend. Regular self-care rituals help to reset the mind and body and restore the soul. We love Sundays for self-care days. Here are some ideas:
Give yourself a mini-facial at home with these recommended Eminence products available in our shop!
For Dry Skin:
Coconut Milk Cleanser
Snow Mushroom and Reishi Masque and/or Strawberry Rhubarb Masque
Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil and Jasmine and Tangerine Age-Defying Night Cream
Citrus Exfoliating Wash
Lotus Detoxing Overnight Treatment and Citrus and Kale C+E Masque
Mangosteen Daily Resurfacing Concentrate and Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream
Set up your own at-home foot soak! In a deep basin or tub, combine warm water, Epsom salts, and a few drops of your essential oil of choice (lavender, citrus or woodsy scents like juniper or cedarwood are great for winter) and mix gently to combine. Then lower feet and soak for 15-20 minutes. Follow with a foot scrub, and be sure to dry rinse well and dry feet completely. Moisturize and give your feet a little self-massage with the Apricot body oil, which can be used on legs as well. A full-body soak in the bath using these same steps and hydrating the whole body afterward is also a wonderful way to relax after a hectic week.

Spa Facial (Every 4-6 Weeks):
Skin regenerates itself every 28 days and by the time those new cells push their way to the surface layer of skin, they have lost their nucleus and are essentially dead cells. These cells slough away in a constant process of renewal. Monthly facials allow for new cells to regenerate and rise to the surface, but at the same time allows for enough recovery time to so skin isn’t overly aggravated.
A professional facial can give your skin the extra boost it needs with stronger products, additional facial massage, and the skincare counsel or direction you need to better your routine.
Recommended Anjou Spa Service: Seasonal Facial – right now for February 2020 try the Dark Chocolate and Rose Facial!
We recommend seeing a professional for a deeper level of peel and exfoliation every 4-6 weeks. At Anjou Spa, one of the ways we acheive deep renewal and cellular regeneration is with the Arctic Berry peel system from Eminence. Peels also help to clear away dead skin cells and also allow your skin to better absorb the products applied after. You’ll see better results from all the products you use by incorporating peels into your facial care calendar.
Recommended Anjou Spa Service: Facial treatment that includes a peel like the Cellular Renewal, Hydrator Aqua Facial, or Refresher Facial & Peel. For only $20 you can also add-on a Seasonal Peel to your facial!
Whew, that’s a lot of information, but don’t worry, we’ve got it all condensed for you into a handy printable calendar you can post right on your bathroom mirror or add friendly reminders into your phone.
