SCORE A SALON-LIKE FACIAL AT HOME WITH THIS 7-STEP GUIDE
Step 1: Cleanse
It is important to cleanse your face thoroughly to remove any dirt, makeup, or product build-up before you start with your facial. Wipe off any makeup residue from the face using cleansing wipes.
Step 2: Exfoliate
Exfoliating skin with a mild scrub helps remove dead skin cells, polish the skin, and making it brighter. Take a pea-sized amount of your face scrub and rub it gently onto face and neck in a circular motion.
Step 3: Massage your face
Dampen your palms and take a small amount of face massage cream. Start with the middle of your forehead and work towards temples. Then massage along the sides of your nose and cheeks. Lastly, massage lips, chin, and jawline. Don’t forget to massage the neck. Use your fingers and massage in an upward direction working towards the chin. Wash your face with water after good 10 minutes of massage time.
Step 4: Take steam
After exfoliating and massaging, next comes the steam. It helps the pores to open and makes skin absorbent for the products to follow. Heat is also good for the skin as it makes skin relaxed and moist. This step does wonders for oily and acne-prone skin. Boil water in a pot and take it off the stove. Lean over it and take steam for 5-10 minutes. Cover your head with a towel and to make sure the heat is trapped and skin gets the steam.
Step 5: Mask it
Grab your favorite face mask and enjoy some relaxed time while your skin relaxes as well.
Step 6: Get toning
Toning is also important in facial. Now that your skin has absorbed the nutrients and goodness of face mask, toner would help to close and clean the pores. It also restores the balance of the skin and is essentially beneficial for acne-prone skin as it doesn’t let the dirt settle in on the skin.
Step 7: Moisturize obviously
Wrap up your 7-step home facial with a soothing moisturizer. Cleansing and steam dries out the skin in the process and thus the facial needs to end with moisturizing skin. This last step hydrates the skin and helps to retain and sealing in the moisture it lost. Make sure your hands are clean.
2. BODY SCRUB
Aside from exfoliating dead skin cells and improving blood circulation, body scrubs are like food for your skin—you can use homemade body scrub recipes that are too yummy to resist.
To make a DIY body scrub, keep the following items on hand:
- spoons for mixing
- mixing bowl
- measuring spoons or cups
- a carrier or base oil, such as coconut oil, jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, almond oil, or olive oil
- sealed container to store the scrub in
- a few drops of your favorite essential oils, if desired
Here are some of the most popular types of DIY body scrubs:
- Coffee scrub
Coffee is still a popular ingredient for many DIY body scrubs. The tiny granules are gentle on the skin, while still being effective at removing dead cells from the skin’s surface.
2.Brown sugar scrub
Brown sugar is gentler on the skin than sea salt or Epsom salt. This makes it an ideal ingredient for sensitive skin. The sugar granules might make your skin feel sticky, so be sure to rinse thoroughly after you’ve exfoliated.
3.Sea salt scrub
Salt has antibacterial properties that can be helpful for some skin conditions. Salt is also a preservative, so the sea salt scrub will be able to naturally preserve itself.
4.Honey sugar scrub
Honey can easily be combined with granules and oil to make a skin-nourishing body scrub. After massaging the scrub into your skin, be sure to rinse your skin off thoroughly to prevent stickiness.
3. HAIR MASK
You don’t need to spend a ton of money on pricey masks to restore the health of your strands. These homemade hair masks utilize ingredients you most likely already have sitting in your kitchen right now like yogurt, avocado, and olive oil, these helps revive dry or damaged hair.
4. HAIR REMOVAL
Razors are handy, there’s no doubt about it. They’re not too expensive, easy to use, and perfect for last-minute, emergency hair removal. If you prefer waxing, rub the wax strips between your palms then slowly peel them apart. Apply a strip towards the direction of your hair growth then quickly pull it away in the opposite direction.
