Having a glowing and radiant face is every woman’s dream. That is the reason why most women are trying all manner of face pampering ways to achieve this dream. Among the most effective skincare routines to acquire a healthy face with an even complexion is by doing regular facials.
One can get a facial done on her by a professional in the spas and beauty parlors although at a relatively high fee. The high fees charged by these spas may deter many from having their faces pampered although they badly would want to. However, the good news is that you can still give yourself a spa-like facial treatment at home by using readily available products in the market. If you take a healthy drink every day, this will further help you achieve the same professional results of a smoother and glowing face.
Here is a simple step-by-step procedure of how you can do this:
Cleanse your face
Start by cleaning your face, ears and neck to get rid of any makeup using a facial cleanser.
Scrub the skin
Get a good and gentle facial scrub to help you remove any dead skin on your face and unblock the pores. Apply the scrub your face and use your fingers to gently rub it on the skin in circular motions. Ensure that you scrub all the areas on your face paying special attention to your forehead, sections around your nose and any other oily area. Do not rinse off the facial scrub yet.
If you do not have the luxury of a skin steamer in your home, relax because there are several ways in which you can steam clean your face. One of the safest ways of doing this is by using a clean towel and hot water. Pour some hot water in a basin and soak in a clean towel in the water. Wring out the towel and press it all over your face allowing it to sit on an area for about 30 seconds. Repeat this process about three times to ensure that the pores open up.
Mask the face
The type of a mask that you will apply on your face depends on the type of your skin. If your skin is oily, a clay mask is the best and if your skin is dry, a gel mask or a hydrating cream would be the best choice. You can also make your own mask at home by blending a small amount of plain yogurt with a piece of an orange. Apply the mask all over your face and rinse it off with warm water after 15 minutes.
Since by this stage the dead skin and other impurities have been removed from your skin, it is time to hydrate and moisturize your skin. After cleaning the mask off, apply a hydrating mask to allow its properties penetrate into your skin and rinse the mask off using cold water. Use your usual moisturizer to massage your face using upward motion.
If there are some blemishes on your face, never squeeze them to force them to pop up as you may end up with an infection. If the blemish is not serious, allow it to heal by itself or seek the professional help of a dermatologist.
