Facials are often perceived as indulgent treatments provided at a spa by a professional Facialist. However, if your budget won’t stretch to regular spa visits, there are many ways you can create your own best home facial using natural skin care products.
Setting the mood can make a big difference in ensuring your best home facial experience feels indulgent. Making use of quiet time, gentle music and candles is a great way to turn your bedroom or bathroom into a spa-like haven.
Try and put aside as much time for the experience as possible and ideally avoid any interruptions. A lot of people do their best home facial and pampering around achieving other tasks, which isn’t very pampering at all! If you allow yourself an hour where you just pamper yourself, this will ensure your facial at home benefits both the mind and the body.
Put together a list of things that you’ll need for your DIY facial and keep a consistent stock. Most basic facials require a natural cleanser, face toner, exfoliator and the best hydrating mask for your skin type. You can add to your facial at home with natural exfoliators, treatment oils (ideal for massaging your face) a face serum.
Create a schedule for your facial with time allocations for each experience and try to make sure you stick to it. For example, allow 10 minutes for cleansing and make use of the time by working the cleanser into your skin and gently massaging in. Follow with the best hydrating mask for your skin type and then as a real treat use generous amounts of your natural face serum and allow to absorb for 5 to 10 minutes. Follow with your favourite natural skin care moisturiser and your skin will thank you for it.
Try to put aside a weekly time slow where you indulge yourself with your best home facial. This will not only give you something to look forward to, but it will also ensure that your skin benefits from the regularity of frequent pampering.
