How to Do a Facial at Home, A Step By Step Guide

Giving yourself a facial at home is an excellent way of keeping your skin fresh and glowing without the expense of a salon treatment. However as a staunch advocate of natural and organic skincare I strongly recommend using products made from pure, wholesome ingredients that are free from toxic chemicals and mineral oils when doing a facial at home. Premium skincare made from 100% natural and organic ingredients with no chemicals, mineral oils or artificial additives offer superior results as well as being healthier. Here is what you will need for your facial:

PRODUCTS

Gentle facial cleanser,

natural facial scrub,

Facial mask to suite your skin type,

Facial oil/serum

Facial moisturizer

EQUIPMENT

Damp cotton pads(soaked in water/rosewater)

Kettle of hot water

Large glass bowl

Towel,

2 damp face cloths/facial sponges

2 chilled chamomile tea bags/cucumber slices

mirror

spa music(optional)

 

PREPARATION:

  • Wash hands, tie hair back, remove any jewelry especially rings.

 

STEP1: CLEANSE.

  • .Apply a small amount of cleanser to face and neck. Spread evenly and massage slowly in circular motions. Remove with damp cotton pads until all cleanser is removed.
  • Repeat previous step.

 

STEP 2: STEAM.

  • Pour hot water into the bowl and lean over the hot water, covering the head with a towel to contain the steam. Allow the skin to steam gently for up to 5 minutes( steam should feel comfortable)

 

STEP 3: EXFOLIATE.

  • Apply exfoliator to face and neck and massage GENTLY, in circular motions avoiding the delicate eye area.
  • Remove with a damp wash cloth/facial sponges until all product is removed. Wipe skin with damp cotton pads

 

STEP 4: MASSAGE.

  • Apply natural facial oil/serum and massage in circular motions. Wipe excess facial oil

 

STEP5: MASK.

  • Apply facial masque to suit your skin, lie in a reclining position with cucumber slices/chamomile tea bags over eyes for 5-10 minutes or time recommended for mask.
  • Remove masque with damp face cloth/facial sponges and wipe skin with damp cotton pads until all mask is removed.

 

STEP 6: MOISTURIZE.

  • Moisturize.
  • Enjoy your fresh new skin.

 

Please note: Do not carry out any other facial treatments ie facial waxing etc 12 hours before/after a facial .
