Give yourself a spa facial in the comfort of your own home. The facial consists of sequential steps, and you can use any store-bought line of facial products or homemade cleansers made from natural materials.
Relax first with by wrapping a warm towel over your face, or by gently steaming the face over a bowl of hot water. This will also help open pores. Pat face dry.
Dampen face with warm water. Lather up a cleanser in the palms of your hands, and rub into the face in a circular motion, avoiding the eyes. Rinse face with cool water, and pat dry with a clean towel.
Exfoliate the dry layer of skin with an exfoliating cleanser or scrub. Cleansers with crushed apricot seeds or crushed almonds work well. Rinse thoroughly.
Massage with circular motions, sweeping gently across the forehead, avoiding sensitive temples, and repeat. Move to the nose and cheeks, jawbone and neck.
Deep clean with a mask. Use a mask made for oily skin, dry skin or to unclog pores. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes, or follow the recommended time on the packaging. Wear a chilled eye mask or put cucumber slices over eyes, and sit back.
Rehydrate with a moisturizer. Protect skin by using a moisturizer with an SPF rating of at least 15.
Apply a moisturizing balm to lips, a step that is often neglected during a spa facial.
- If any product produces an uncomfortable or burning sensation wash it off with cool water immediately.
