We all know beautiful skin is every woman’s best feature, regular professional facials is one way of getting and maintaining gorgeous glowing skin. However, for the busy and broke girls, here are some steps with which you can give yourself a mini-facial.
Take off all your makeup and wash your face with your favourite makeup remover and cleanser to get rid of all the surface dirt and oil. Don’t forget your neck and ears.
Use a gentle face scrub to gently take off dead surface skin cells, and prep your skin for the yummy goodies to come. Using your fingertips, apply the scrub in small circular motions to damp skin, making sure to concentrate on your T-zone. Scrub can be extended to your lips as well (be careful not to get it into your mouth).
Steaming your face opens up the pores, allowing trapped dirt and oil come out and making it easier for your skin to absorb the products benefits, also helps you get that lovely glow. Steam your face at home by placing a warm wash cloth over your face for a few minutes, or place your face over a pot/bowl of steaming hot water with a towel draped over your head for a few minutes.
For oily skin; use a clay based mask. For dry skin, a hydrating or gel mask works best. Use according to product package directions.
Smooth your favourite skin-type appropriate moisturizer on your face and neck to lock in the moisture.
Remember to use a moisturizer with at least SPF 15 and above.
Maintain a great skin by doing the five step facial once a week.
Love yourself, pamper yourself, be you tiful.
