Facials are treatments to help keep your skin in tip-top condition and it's a good idea to treat yourself to them regularly. While a common type of therapy you’d find in most spas and resorts, caring for your skin should do not have to be expensive or require routine spa appointments unless you want to.
At-Home Facials are DIY facials that you can do in the comfort of your own home. If you have a busy life, it can be something you can do in your spare time to unwind and relax while moisturising your skin.
How to Give Yourself A Home Facial?
Facials are straightforward skin treatments that are easy to do, even for yourself!
The first thing you’d want to do is to pull back your hair from your face.
Start by thoroughly cleansing your skin. This is to get rid of any impurities and traces of makeup before you begin. So, you can get the most out of your facial. E45’s Facial Purifying Cleansing Milk, Freshening Creamy Wash or Hydrating Cleansing Wipes are ideal for removing microscopic dirt and grease.
For a more pampered experience, try using a cleansing oil to wash your face, like rubbing coconut, almond or jojoba oil and then wipe away using a towel with warm water. Afterwards, rinse your face and pat it dry.
Once your face is cleansed, massage in an exfoliator or facial scrub to banish any dead skin cells. This is to clear away dead skin without damaging the healthy skin.
To boost your skin and add radiance, follow this with a deep cleansing or moisturising mask. Do this while your pores are still moist and open. This allows the facial mask to draw out impurities.
After applying the mask, let it sit for fifteen minutes or so. This is important. During this time, the ingredients in the mask will soak and nourish your skin. This is the easiest part of the treatment, simply let the mask do the work.
When you remove the mask, it will give you a wonderful, vibrant glow. For best results, remove the mask with a hot muslin cloth.
After this, it is time to moisturise. E45’s Facial Enriching Day Cream can help rejuvenate your skin and keep it supple and hydrated. Apply the cream to your face, using a massaging motion. Pay extra attention to the area around your sinuses and pressure points.
Don’t forget your neck. Use a smooth sweeping upward movement to help keep it firm and free from lines.
Finish up your facial routine by dotting an eye cream around your eye contour area and then you’re done.
For a fresh, young glowing complexion, try to follow and maintain this routine every day for several weeks. After undergoing this treatment over time, you’ll soon notice your complexion is more radiant and you’ll find your skin is clearer, softer and smoother.
