How to do Your Own Facial

How to do Your Own Facial

Skip the spa and give yourself this at-home facial that gets your skin radiant.

Does your skin look drab and dull? Use this step-by-step facial to get it to its glowing self again! A facial is great for giving your skin some much-needed pampering.

Step 1: Double Cleanse

To remove makeup and cleanse your skin thoroughly, always do it twice. Some oils remove makeup and grime the best, but find one that works for you.

Follow with a creamy or foam cleanser, depending on your skin type. Remember to include your neck and décolleté!

Step 2: Exfoliate

Exfoliation removes dead cells so your skin looks fresh and other products can penetrate more effectively. Choose an exfoliator that suits your skin type: granular if it’s normal, cream if it’s delicate, chemical if it’s sensitive or problematic, or enzyme-based, which can be used on most skin types.

Step 3: Warm Compress and Facial Massage

Soak a soft cloth in warm water, squeeze out the excess and hold it over your face to boost circulation and dilate pores. Wipe off any product residue, and then follow that with a facial massage, unless your skin is oily. Gently work a rich cream into your skin with little round upward movements.

Step 4: Mask
Apply a mask without removing the cream from step three. Choose a hydrating, firming, stimulating, refining or nourishing formula, depending on your greatest skincare concern. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes. (This is a good time to soak in the bath.) Make eye pads from cotton wool and alcohol-free toner and place them over your eyes. Relax for 10 minutes and then rinse it all off.

Step 5: Apply Serum or Cream

Finally, apply serum and day or night cream as well as your regular eye cream or gel. If it’s daytime, don’t forget sun protection! Your skin should look invigorated, smooth and bright.
