How To Do An At-Home Facials

Do you know experts recommend you do a facial at least once a month, and trust me, going to the spa every month doesn’t seem quite feasible.? Here at-home facials.

Facials are one of the most relaxing and luxurious things that you can do for yourself. Many of us need to take care of ourselves and destress more than ever, but it’s not possible to book an appointment with your favorite esthetician for a professional facial. Luckily, it’s still possible to give yourself a spa-quality facial at home. Let’s dive in:

1. Cleanse Your Skin Well

Before you do anything else to your face, you need to start with a clean canvas. Any makeup or product left on your skin will result in a less effective facial. To make sure your skin is as clean as possible before you start the facial process, give double cleansing a try.

2. Steam Your Skin

Steaming your face helps open up your pores and soften the top layer of your skin to prime it for exfoliation.

If you want to steam your face at home, take extra care not to over-steam your skin, as this can lead to dryness. You can either hover your face over a bowl of hot water and cover your head with a towel to trap the steam in, or soak a towel in hot water and put it over your face, making sure the water isn’t hot enough to burn you.

3. Exfoliate To Smooth And Brighten

Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells from the skin or face to reveal your radiant skin. Some experts recommend using an enzyme or chemical exfoliator instead of a physical exfoliator (like a scrub).

4. Massage In A Mask

You can pick whatever mask you want to use based on your skin’s needs, but experts recommend looking for a mask with detoxifying ingredients that will help clean out your pores since your pores will be open after exfoliating (think a clay mask or a charcoal mask) Leave the mask on for 15 to 20 minutes.

5. Moisturize Skin

One of the biggest keys to achieving a radiant glow is well-moisturized skin with a top-rated moisturizer. Once you remove the mask, lock in the hydration with your favorite serum or moisturizer.

…and voila you have just achieved a SPA standard facial right in your home.
