At Home Facials- If you have done your research on facials you have probably begun to understand the importance of removing layers of dead skin in order to display new skin.
As we age, our skin doesn't shed dead skin cells as quickly as it did when we were younger, and giving yourself facials helps to speed up the process so your skin looks brighter and younger.
Many women love getting facials at a spa because not only do they get to be pampered, but they have a brighter complexion. Instead of spending excessive amounts of money to have an esthetician give you a facial every few months, take matters into your own hands and give yourself cost effective at home facials.
Some Things to Keep In Mind
You will notice a significant difference after your very first facial. And once you make a habit of doing at home facials on a regular basis, you will see that your skin looks much better.
Instead of just relying on your at home facial to fix flaws on your skin, you should strive to maintain good skin care habits in between your facials. Sometimes we are so busy that our skin becomes our last priority. It is not a good idea to ignore proper skin care because instead of spending all of your time fixing flaws, you should be finding ways to successfully maintain healthy skin.
The best skin is skin that you can love without makeup. Your goal should be to have beautiful, glowing skin that you can feel confident to show off and not have to hide behind layers of makeup which by the way usually makes it look worse.
Step Two - Wash your face with an appropriate cleanser for your skin type. Cleanse thoroughly removing all makeup.
Step Three– Use a facial scrub to exfoliate dead skin. Gently massage your face to remove the dead skin. Remove all traces of the facial scrub. A popular type of scrub is a natural chemical peel, made with fruit. Fruits are a great ingredient for at home facials because the natural fruit enzymes help to exfoliate without making your skin feel dry and irritated.
Step Four – Boil a pot of water and pour it into your sink. Place towel you’re your head and lower your face over the steam coming from the hot water. This will help to open the pores. Ideally do this for at least five minutes. Pat skin with clean dry towel.
Step Five – Choose a facial mask appropriate for your skin type and leave on according to package directions. Lie down and relax while the mask is working. Gently remove the mask with hot towels. Keep applying towels until face is clear of any product. You can also rinse the face with lots of water but the hot towels are more pampering. Pat dry.
Here is a home recipe for you to try. Do you like papayas? Well, you can make a simple at home facial by using a smashed papaya, a package of plain gelatin and water. Be sure to chill the mask for about 30 minutes before you apply it to your face, and then keep the mask on your face for about 20 minutes. After it is dry, peel it off and rinse your face with water
Step Six – Apply a moisturizer and eye cream appropriate for your skin type.
