How to Give Yourself an At-Home Facial
- Posted on: Jan 15 2017
Facial treatments are not only relaxing and pampering, but they also have great health benefits as well. By helping to restore the moisture to your skin and get rid of damaging impurities, it would be ideal to get a spa facial done every few weeks. However, because you likely don’t have the time or money to get a facial done that frequently, consider learning how to give yourself one from the comforts of your home. Read on to find out more.
Step 1: Cleanse
The first step in giving yourself a facial is to cleanse your skin. This involves taking makeup off with a makeup remover and washing your face with a gentle facial cleanser for at least 30 seconds. Once your skin is clean, pat it dry with a clean towel.
Step 2: Mask
The second step in the at-home facial is to apply a face mask. Popular amongst most patients, a clay face mask can get rid of impurities and stabilize your skin’s oil— leaving you with fewer blemishes. After you have left your mask on for around 5-10 minutes, wipe it off with a warm, clean, damp washcloth.
Step 3: Exfoliate
Using either an exfoliating brush or a face scrub, exfoliate the skin around your nose, forehead, and chin (your T-zone). These areas are more prone to developing oil, acne, and dead skin.
Step 4: Tone
As a step that many people forget, using a toner will help to get rid of any additional impurities that are on your skin. When shopping for a toner, make sure to get one that is geared towards your specific skin type. For instance, if you have oily skin, get one designed to combat oil.
Step 5: Moisturize
As the final step in your facial, apply a facial moisturizer, eye cream, and sunscreen (if it’s in the morning) to your skin. As mentioned regarding a toner, when getting a moisturizer choose one that is designed with your skin in mind— this will help to make sure you don’t either break out or dry up.
