Not all of us can afford to get regular facial at a spa and in order to maintain ourselves we try to give ourselves facials at home. You wonder why spas take so much of your time to give you the perfect facial; well, it’s because of the massage that they give you. When you attempt a facial at home it is normally in a rush; you make a paste with a few ingredients and slather it into your face. After it gets dried you wash it off and are on your way. This is a quick remedy and you face does not benefit too much from this; you just get a false sense of cleansing.
In order to give yourself a facial that will enhance your complexion you must spend quality time attending to your skin. Start with washing your face so that you get rid of the surface oils and dirt. Dry your face with a clean towel and then start prepping your face for a change. Use a face scrub and spend 10 to 15 minutes massaging the scrub into your skin so that you get rid of the dirt and oil from deep within your pores. It also helps you to get rid of any pollutants on the surface of your skin.
After you finish with the massage clean the residue with a warm towel. Your pores are now clean and you may steam your face so that you are able to open your pores and unclog them of the blackheads and whiteheads that are growing deep within your skin. Let steam onto your face for 5 minutes and then remove the blackheads with the help of an orange stick.
After you complete this step, massage your face with a rich cream for 10 to 15 minutes. This will help to increase the circulation on your face and prevent the formation of wrinkles and fine lines. The last thing you need to do is to use a rich face pack on your face and neck. Choose one that suits your skin type. If you have acne prone skin then an herbal pack is the best, for oily skin Fuller’s Earth is the most beneficial and for normal to dry skin use a fruit based pack.
Wash off the pack with ice cold water and you will notice the radiance in your face. Use a toner to close your pores and thin layer of moisturizer to even out your skin tone.
