FacialHave you ever tried to treat your face at home? Let me guess your answer!! We all are somewhere stuck to the most chaotic schedules in our lives. And all these chaos (and the changing climate, of course) give a lot of stress as well as strain on both our social and most notably, the personal downtime. Don’t worry, in this article, I will help you to begin with the perfect facial at home .
Between tackling an endless to-do list, it kind of becomes impossible to pamper our skin. Right? Also, our finances are also tied up in various areas!! Not everyone out there can afford an expensive facial at the salon!!
Follow These Steps:
Before starting your facial, make sure that your skin is thoroughly clean without any makeup or debris. In case, if you have any makeup left on your face, use a micellar water with a cotton round to remove it. Other alternatives of micellar water are jojoba, olive or almond oil.
Once you have gently removed the makeup, you should then do a double-cleansing. In double cleansing, you can use an oil-based cleanser after a water-based cleanser, this will help you to remove every type of grime from your skin.
Before choosing an exfoliation method, you should first consider your skin condition.
Always do the exfoliation step with a light hand and follow the correct instructions of your specific product.
Make sure that you don’t rub the product against your skin because it can result in breakouts, irritation, and inflammation.
Steam is one of the essential parts of a facial, however, make sure to keep it cool!
Steam will open pores allowing for deeper penetration, but extreme heat against your skin can cause sensitivity as well as irritation.
You should invest in a good facial steamer. Yes, it is ideal !! And if you don’t want to spend any money, then you can also boil a pot of water, fill a large bowl, and just allow your face to hover some inches away from the steam. When it feels warm, you can back up a little bit.
You can either apply a single mask & then follow with another, or apply multiple masks. It actually depends on your skin!
If your skin is oily in some places & dryness in others, then you should apply a clay or mud mask to the oily zones & a hydrating rinse-off mask to the rest of your face. This can be an excellent plan for your skin’s requirements.
In case, if your skin is consistent in all the areas, then you can just apply a tightening or brightening mask after a hydrating sheet mask.
Once your skin is cleansed, pores are opened, and you have washed away your treatment masks, now it is time to move on to the hydration.
In this step, all you need to do is to take a dime-sized amount of a hydrating or essence toner, press it on your face as well as neck and repeat it as many times as you wish.
Now your skin will need a good amount of nourishment.
You can either use a Vitamin C serum for the brightening effects or a general hydrating serum.
It doesn’t really matter which one you pick up, but make sure to acquire some good stuff on your skin!
7. Eyes & Lips
This step is the easiest of all!!
Just apply any lip treatment or eye cream before your final step.
Always apply eye creams using your ring finger with the lightest pressure.
The last step of the whole process is sealing all the goodness in!!
If you are doing the facial during the day, it is best to finish using a simple moisturizer, instead of facial oil or cream. And if you are doing it a night, then you should apply a moisturizer or oil to lock in all the hydration.
An at-home facial will turn your skin beautiful, fresh and bright!!!
I encourage every girl out there to set aside a little time every week to lavish your skin with facial at home tips.
Your skin deserves it!!!
