Giving yourself a facial is one of the best things you can do for your skin. Not only does it provide some serious benefits, like glowing skin, but it can also do wonders for your spirit as well. A facial just feels great. It’s an important part of self-care that you can do in your own home with the right setting and products from Cosmedica Skincare. Here are 10 tips for giving yourself a well-deserved home facial during these trying times. Your skin will thank you for it.
Tip #1: Set the Atmosphere
Spas go to exceptional lengths to make the mood of the room feel just right. Put on some soft music, light some candles, and use a diffuser to gently scent the air with your favorite essential oils.
Tip #2: Cleanse Your Skin
It’s vital to start your facial with really clean skin. You don’t want to be grinding a bunch of dirt, oil, makeup, and bacteria into your skin with the rest of the steps in the facial. Cosmedica Skincare’s vegan facial cleansers are where you want to start. We offer a Vitamin C Cleanser for any skin type and an Activated Charcoal Cleanser for normal to oily skin.
Tip #3: Steam to Release Toxins From Your Face
To do this next step, you want to get a large bowl and fill it with very hot water. Put your face over the bowl with a towel around your head to trap the steam against your face.
Tip #4: Exfoliate
Exfoliation is one of the most important steps of an at-home facial. Try our 2.5 % Glycolic Facial Scrub. Scrub for at least 90 seconds to get the benefits of silky soft skin that is stimulated and renewed. Rinse before the next step.
Tip #5: Apply a Mask
A mask is a perfect way to infuse the skin with some additional treatment benefits. We offer a Brightening Pumpkin Mask which is going to help cell turnover with alpha hydroxy acids. There is also a Deep Detox Charcoal Mask that will get rid of pore clogging toxins.
Tip #6: Massage Your Skin
Take the time when you are applying the facial mask to give yourself a facial massage. This can increase the circulation in your skin giving you a rested and glowing look.
Tip #7: Rinse Thoroughly
Rinse all of your mask ingredients off very well with lukewarm water before you apply your organic skincare products.
Tip #8: Massage in Treatment Serums
After you have rejuvenated your skin with a facial treatment, you want to apply your serums. Using Cosmedica Skincare’s Pure Hyaluronic Acid Serum is going to bind moisture to the skin making it plumped up and radiant. You can also layer that with our Vitamin C Super Serum which helps give the skin brightness, diminishes the appearance of discoloration, and acts as a potent antioxidant.
Tip #9: Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
It’s so important to moisturize after a facial and exfoliation treatment. That newly refreshed skin needs the hydration to supercharge the skin cells. Our Super Nutrient Facial Balm is chock full of beneficial organic skincare ingredients, like rosehip seed oil. It’s an anti-aging moisturizer that will instantly make your skin look its glowing best.
Tip #10: Don’t Forget Sunscreen
For the future health of your skin, you have to protect all the good work you did giving yourself a facial by wearing sunscreen. Go for at least an SPF 30 each day and reapply after a few hours of wear.
