How To Do Your Own Facial
Step 1: Cleanse Your Face
To cleanse your skin thoroughly, always cleanse twice. Some ranges offer oil as a pre-cleanser, which removes make-up and grime brilliantly. Follow with a cream, milk or foam cleanser, depending on your skin type. Remember to include your neck and décolleté.
Step 2: Exfoliate Your Face
Exfoliation removes dead cells so your skin looks more radiant and other products can penetrate more effectively. Choose an exfoliator that suits your skin type: granular if it’s normal, cream if it’s delicate, chemical if it’s sensitive, problematic, or enzymatic, which can be used on most skin types.
Step 3: Warm Compress and Facial Massage
Soak a face cloth in warm water, squeeze out excess and hold it over skin to boost circulation and dilate pores. Wipe off product residue. Follow with a facial massage, unless your skin is oily. Gently work a rich cream into skin with little round upward movements.
Step 4: Apply Face Mask
Apply a mask without removing the cream. Choose a hydrating, firming, stimulating, refining or nourishing formula, depending on your greatest skin-care concern. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes. This is a good time to soak in the bath. Make eye pads from cotton wool and alcohol-free toner and place them over your eyes. Relax for 10 minutes and then rinse off.
