Facial at home

        Facials are a great way to keep your skin glowing, but they can be pricey. To maintain your healthy skin between professional treatments or to do them yourself, try this basic at-home facial once a week. This basic facial works on oily, dry and combination skin. CTM (cleansing, toning and moisturizing) routine is the most efficient and effortless skin care routine which can help you to achieve the flawless and healthy skin. Along with this, skin facials should be done at least once in 4 weeks. It plays an important role to rejuvenate your skin and restore the natural glow to your face.

       And now you do not have to spend long hours at parlors and spend thousands for that perfect facial. You can easily do the facial at home by following some simple tips. This saves a lot time and money and you are aware of the products you use on your face.

Step One: Set the Scene
Gather all your supplies together before you begin the process, to achieve maximum efficiency and relaxation. If you have long hair, pull it back into a braid or ponytail and use a headband to keep loose wisps off your face. Put on your favorite soothing music and adjust the lighting in your home to create a spa like ambience.

Step Two: Cleanse the Skin
Wash your hands thoroughly with anti-bacterial soap and hot water. Bacteria and/or dirt on your hands blocks pores, causing spots. You should wash your face, neck and ears with a good facial cleanser to remove any grime or dirt. Don't forget to remove eye makeup with a makeup remover. You can also mix a tablespoon or two of whole milk with a few drops of olive oil. Massage the solution into your skin gently, using circular motions to distribute it evenly and boost circulation. Then rinse thoroughly with warm water.

Step Three: Exfoliate
When dead skin cells accumulate and block facial pores, they cause blackheads and dullness. Exfoliation is the key to removing those dead cells and liberating the skin underneath for a more luminous complexion, in addition to evening out skin tone and decreasing the appearance of wrinkles and sunspots. Using your fingers, rub a gentle exfoliating facial scrub in a circular motion on your face. Concentrate on the areas around your nose and forehead or if you have combo skin, work harder on the areas that tend to be "greasy." Rinse your face well since exfoliating scrubs tend to be drying.

Step Four: Massaging
After proper cleansing and exfoliation, massaging is the next important step. A good massage with a suitable massage cream or gel increases the blood circulation in your facial area which reduces wrinkles and pigmentation, making the skin look young and radiant. It also softens your skin and tones the facial muscles.  It also encourages healthy sebum production which helps to keep your skin cells moisturized.

Step Five: Steam
During a professional facial, the aesthetician trains a small steam machine on the client’s face for five to ten minutes in order to open the pores for deep cleaning and extractions. You can achieve the same result at home by boiling one quart of distilled water in a saucepan on the stove top; if you’d like to infuse the water with your favorite soothing fragrances, bundle fresh lavender, chamomile, or eucalyptus in gauze and steep for five minutes. Remove the pot from the heat. At this point, Carswell advises coating your face in a thin layer of almond or sesame oil to protect your skin from excessive heat. Then, using a clean towel to cover your head and capture the steam rising from the water’s surface, lower your face over the steam (taking care not to get uncomfortably close) and remain in that position for five minutes, then pat skin dry.

Step Six: Apply a Mask
Whatever your skin type, a mask can work wonders at drawing out impurities, minimizing pores temporarily, sloughing off dead skin, and moisturizing. Apply the mask, avoiding the areas around the eyes. Keep it on for 10-20 minutes (or, according to the directions on the product). Rinse completely. You can even make your own face mask.

Step Seven: Moisturize
For this final, calming step, put a generous amount of your favorite moisturizer in your palms, then rub them together to warm it up. Then take your time massaging the cream into your face, focusing on your cheeks, your forehead, and around your eyes, until it’s absorbed enough that your fingertips encounter resistance.

This is way for Home Facial, I hope you all like it.
