Home Facial Tips and Techniques
You could go to a tiny spa and spend a quarter of your paycheck to get a facial, or you can spend next to nothing and get the same benefits at home with easy home facials you do yourself. If you’re like most women you want glowing, radiant skin but don’t want the high price tag that goes with it. The good news? It’s easy to do skin-brightening facials at home and get spa-quality results. Here are some home facial tips that’ll save you a trip to the spa.
Why does a facial make your skin look brighter? Facials slough off dead skin cells that build up on the surface of your skin. These dead skin cells block the healthier cells underneath, causing your skin to look dull and flakey. This problem becomes more common with age as skin cell turnover slows down. When you use the right products to do facials at home, you remove dead skin cells so your skin looks brighter, feels smoother and has a healthy glow.
Easy Home Facials: How to Get Started
To do facials at home, you need the right tools. To re-energize and brighten your skin when you’re short on time, use Flori Roberts Exfoliating Facial Scrub and Primer. It’ll give your skin a healthy glow in record time by removing dead skin cells and surface impurities.
To get started, wet your face with warm water. Apply a small amount of the facial scrub to each cheek. Use your fingers to gently massage it in a circular motion for a minute, avoiding the skin around your eyes. As you massage, tiny walnut shell granules lift away dead skin cells while smoothing and pampering your skin. After one use you’ll notice visibly brighter skin that’s smoother to the touch. Follow up with a moisturizer. Try this easy home facial before a party or a special night out on the town for skin that looks radiant.
Home Facial Tips for Blemish-Prone Skin
If you have oily skin or skin that’s prone to blemishes, home facials help remove pore-clogging impurities that trigger breakouts. Start by steaming your face to open your pores. To do this, bring a pan of water to boiling on the stove. Turn off the stove, and place a towel over your head to direct the steam to your face. Hold your head over the steam for three to five minutes.
Once your pores are open, it’s time to deep-clean them. The best way to do this is to use a mask that draws out impurities like Yes to! Clear Skin Facial Mask. This skin-revitalizing mask contains Dead Sea mud – a mineral-rich mud that deep cleans pores. It’s enriched with lycopene, a plant-based antioxidant from tomatoes, along with a bevy of veggie and fruit-based extracts that do good things for your skin.
After steaming, apply a thin layer to your face and relax for five minutes. As you wait, play soft soothing music, close your eyes and de-stress. You’ll feel like you’re in a high-priced spa, without the price tag. Gently remove the mask using a damp towel. Then splash your face with cool water and apply a light, oil-free moisturizer like Flori Roberts Oil-Free Moisturizer.
