Every day make-up residues, sebum, dead cells and toxins due to smog, stress and normal activity of our body accumulate on our skin.

Cleansing the face is a real gesture of love for our skin, which allows to prevent the appearance of blackheads, imperfections, wrinkles and dryness. You can also do it at home, with the help of simple ingredients that are already in your pantry, and a little patience. Let’s see now how to make it!

How To Do Facial At Home In 6 Simple and Easy Steps

Step 1 – Cleansing

Use warm water and a gentle cleanser to wash your face. Be sure to remove all of your make-up and toxins before you proceed to the facial. You can also apply almond, jojoba or olive oil on your face and then wipe it away with warm water.

Step 2 – Steam bath

To deeply cleanse the skin, it is necessary to open the pores naturally. Take a saucepan of water and boil it. Pour two teaspoons of baking soda inside and keep your face at a minimum distance of 15-20 centimeters from it. Place a cloth or towel over your head, to increase the effectiveness and ensure that the steam does not disperse.

Step 3 – Exfoliation

After 15 minutes, use a natural scrub to eliminate dead cells. You can recreate it by emulsifying honey and brown sugar, or, if you have very sensitive skin that reddens easily, opt for honey emulsified with water and baking soda. Massage the mixture into the skin in circular movements, focusing on areas such as the nose, forehead and chin. Rinse everything with warm water.

Step 4 – Face mask

It is very important to apply a nourishing face mask, immediately after the scrub, to regenerate the skin. Choose it according to your skin type: if you have oily skin, prefer ingredients such as honey (also excellent for acne), lemon and clay (astringent, to close the dilated pores). For a super moisturizing action, reduce an avocado to a pulp; if instead you have stressed and not very bright skin, proceed with lemon and cucumber. Choose aloe gel mixed with chamomile if you have sensitive skin. Leave on for at least 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water.

Step 5 – Toning

Toner helps to brighten the skin and restore its balance. You can either use a store-bought toner or make your own toner at home. To make your own toner, mix 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar or rosewater with 1 tablespoon water. Gently massage the mixture onto your skin with cotton.   

Step 6 – Moisturizing

The final step is to apply a moisturizer that suits your skin type. Moisturizer will keep your skin from drying out, preserving the results of your facial. Look for a facial moisturizer that doesn’t contain alcohol, since this can cause your skin to dry out more quickly. If you want to use a homemade, all-natural moisturizer, try aloe vera gel, argan oil, almond oil or jojoba oil.

Conclusion

So, there you have it. Just create a spa-like set-up at home with an essential oil diffuser, candles, music, & crystals and give yourself a much-needed facial. Once you get the hang of it and perfect your routine, you might find yourself getting praised by your beautician the next time you visit her.
