Many people, men and women both, love to get a professional facial done. Although going to a spa or salon to get one done can be quite expensive, there is nothing like having someone else work on your face to make it feel so good. However, many people can’t afford to get professional facials done. Because of this, they can do their own facial from home which will cut the cost by quite a lot and feel just as good. Not to mention the way your facial skin will look after doing a basic facial from home.
Step One: Cleansing your Skin
The very first thing you will need to do is wash your face really good with a great facial cleanser. You can find some online or visit your local health store or pharmacy. You will want to scrub not just your face but your ears and neck to make sure you get rid of all the dirt and grime. Make sure to also take off your eye makeup. You will want to use a great makeup remover as well to ensure it is all gone. Like with the facial cleanser, you can either find great ones online or visit your local pharmacy.
Step Two: Exfoliate the Skin
While you are shopping for great facial cleansers and makeup removers, you will also want to check out a facial scrub. Use this facial scrub to exfoliate your face. Start by applying the scrub to your face and neck and rub it in using a circular motion. Make sure to concentrate the most on your forehead and nose. However, if you have combination oily and dry skin, concentrate as well on the areas that often get the greasiest. You will need to rinse the exfoliating scrub off your face really well because it can make it dry.
Step Three: Steam your Skin
There are a few different ways to steam your facial skin well. You can fill the sink up with warm water and take a washcloth, dip it into the warm water and press it to your face a few times. You can also boil water in a teapot or on the stove, which will make it even hotter, and pour it into the sink, using the washcloth and pressing to your face a few times. An ultrasonic facial machine might be beneficial in helping you steam your facial skin as well.
Step Four: Apply a Mask
You will need a different type of facial mask for your skin type. For example: If you have oily skin, you will want to use a clay type mask. For dry skin types, try a cream mask or a hydrating gel type mask. Once you have the type of mask for your skin type, you will then want to apply it to your face, making sure to avoid the areas around your eyes. Keep the mask on your face for 10-20 minutes or go by the directions on the box of the facial mask you have. Be sure to rinse off completely. If you don’t want to buy a face mask, you can find some great recipes online to make your own homemade mask.
Step Five: Moisturize your Skin
Apply a good facial moisturizer, making sure to also apply to your neck. You can also try extra virgin coconut oil for not only a cheap way to moisturize but an organic way as well.
After doing your own from home, compare the results to a professional one with not only how great your face feels but with how much money you saved.
