DIY Facial

 

True confession, I really dislike people touching my face. So much so, that I never had a facial and I stopped getting my brows waxed/threaded about 5 years ago. That said, I am still into great skin and I can see the benefits in a semi-regular professional facial (because who isn’t into self -care). But some of us have “issues”, not to mention it may not fit into everyone's budget. Which prompted me to grab a couple tools to assist in doing home facials. The tools are inexpensive and you can pick them up on Amazon, they are also easy to use. Here is my weekly facial regimen (Note: I don't use the tool weekly):

 

 

 

Step One: Start With a Steam. You want to do this at least five minutes, I like to shoot for 10 minutes. I got my affordable steamer here.


 

 

 

 

Step Two: Cleanse (no special cleaner just what ever you typically use). I used Urban Skin Rx  Even Tone Cleansing Bar (they now carry this at Target).

 

 

 

 

Step Three: Steam Again ( This steam step is important before using the tool in step four if not using the tools you can skip this step and add on more steam time at step one)

 

 

 


Step Four: Extract/Exfoliate. You can use the tool that will help deep clean your pores, if you don’t have this tool you can exfoliate here.

 

 

 

Step Five: Mask. Use your favorite Mask. I’m using NOID Sanskrit Saponins as a mask.

 

 

 

Step Six: Tone. I use Thayers Rose Petals Witch Hazel

 

 

 

Step Seven: Hydrate. You can use your favorite thick nighttime cream or a hydrating sheet mask. (In the video I used a mask), but I often use Rosehip Seed Oil
