If you’ve ever had a facial, you know how great they are. The feeling of your pores being cleaned out and your skin looking fresh and bright is hard to beat. If you can’t make it to the spa on a regular basis, though, or if your budget doesn’t allow for it at all, then no worries! You can create a luxurious home daily facial routine that will give you good results.
- Don’t do too much at once. A daily facial is all about the basics and learning to take care of your skin in a simple way. If you’re used to an intensive skincare routine that involves several different steps, it’s best to cut back on the frequency before adding a new step.
- Don’t do it too often – especially if your skin is sensitive or prone to irritation or breakouts. The goal is to treat your face with gentle products, not irritate it!
- Do it in the morning, just before bedtime, or both (as long as one of those times is after washing away any makeup you might be wearing). The idea here is that keeping up with this daily ritual will help train your body’s internal clock so that when you’re ready for bed each night your mind will feel relaxed enough (and tired enough) not only for sleep but also for this calming activity afterward as well
Why You Should
There are many reasons why you should get a daily facial. First, facial skin is the first line of defense against the elements. It can be significantly more sensitive than other skin types. It’s also more prone to sun damage and aging due to its close proximity to your brain. A quick glance at your face can tell you quite a bit about how well your body is functioning on an overall level—but only if you know what to look for!
Exfoliation is a great way to remove dead skin cells and make way for new, healthy ones. If you’ve never exfoliated before, then it’s likely your skin is covered in dead cells that can make you look dull. Exfoliating also helps keep your pores clear and prevents clogged pores from causing breakouts.
You can use a face scrub or loofah to exfoliate 2-3 times per week (or as often as needed). If you have sensitive skin, start off with once every few days until your skin gets used to the treatment. If you have dry or dehydrated skin, avoid using peels or scrubs too often; try using oil instead!
Steam and extraction
The first step to getting a proper daily facial is steaming your face. This will open up your pores and allow for deeper penetration of the facial products you’re using. This will also make it easier for the esthetician to extract blackheads and whiteheads from your skin.
There are many ways to do this, but here are some of our favorites:
- Boil a pot of water and pour it into a bowl (or use any container that can hold hot water). Lean over the steamy bowl, making sure that the steam reaches all areas of your face. You should keep doing this for six to eight minutes—then pat dry with a towel before moving on to extractions! It’s important not to skip this step because it helps loosen dirt and oils so they can be removed by extraction tools later on in the process (and keeps them from clogging up pores).
You can use masks to target specific skin concerns. Masks are a great way to get a facial at home. You can do it in the shower or in front of the TV.
The key is figuring out which mask will be best for you based on your skin type and what kind of results you want. For example, if you have dry skin that needs extra hydration, you might want to try our Rosehip Seed Oil & Vitamin C face mask; if your pores are clogged but sensitive due to past breakouts, we recommend trying our Charcoal & Clay purifying face mask; and if your acne scars tend toward purple tones rather than redness (a sign that they’re not healing well), then we recommend using our Green Tea & Turmeric Skin Lightening Mask twice weekly! The possibilities are endless!
It is applied to the skin after cleansing, and before applying your moisturizer or other products. Toner helps remove any remaining dirt, oil, and makeup from the surface of your skin. It also can help reduce redness and inflammation on your face.
Tones are usually alcohol-based, so if you have dry or sensitive skin (like me) they can be drying as well as irritating in some cases. This is why I only use toners when my face is particularly oily—when I feel like I need to freshen up my skin after a long day at work (or if I’ve just washed off all my makeup).
Some people use it before applying moisturizer because it helps their moisturizer absorb better into their skin; others prefer using it afterward so that they don’t disrupt their makeup with excessive rubbing when putting on moisturizer overtop of the toner liquid itself. Either way works fine!
Try a daily facial regime that you can use at home
If you’re looking to improve your skin, there’s no better way than with a facial regime that you can do at home. Facials are an excellent way to improve your overall health and appearance; but if you don’t have time or money for professional treatments every day, there are still things you can do to get the same results in the comfort of your own home.
You might be surprised by how easy it is! With just five minutes each day, some basic products, and a little bit of effort on your part, you’ll be able to experience the benefits of an effective facial regime–and see results in no time!
I hope that you’ve enjoyed learning more about daily facials and the benefits of using one in your daily life. I know that it can seem daunting at first, especially if you have never done one before. But trust me when I say that a facial at home is better than any alternative!
