DIY at Home Mini Facial
Is your skin in need of a quick pick me up? Or maybe you’re looking for a little self-care but can’t head in for a professional treatment right now? Try my DIY at home facial to give your skin a little love! Here’s how –
Start fresh – Cleansing should always be the first step to any skincare routine as it clears away impurities and excess oil that can clog pores and dull skin. Start by cleansing with our Gentle Cleanser for 30-60 seconds. If you’re wearing sunscreen or makeup, be sure to double cleanse!
Ice – The magic wand to give the skin an instant glow! Roll an ice cube over clean skin for 30-60 seconds. This will reduce inflammation and constrict blood vessels to reveal brighter, more radiant skin.
Sulfur Refining Mask – Apply a large, grape size amount (about 4 pumps) of the Sulfur Refining Mask to the skin and let it sit for 1-3 minutes. My Sulfur Refining Mask contains Bentonite Clay and Kaolin Clay which is amazing at drawing out impurities from the skin that contribute to dullness. It also contains sulfur which acts as a keratinolytic, causing a mild shedding of the top layers of the skin that can lead to clogged pores and dullness. Once 3 minutes is up, rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Pumpkin Enzyme Mask – Apply a large, grape size amount (about 4 pumps) of my Pumpkin Enzyme Mask and leave on for 10 minutes to exfoliate and brighten the skin. The natural pumpkin puree in this mask is rich in Beta-Carotene (a pregnancy safe derivative of Retinol) and helps to smooth fine lines, speed up cell turnover and reverse the sun damage. Additionally, the enzymes naturally occurring in pumpkin help to “digest” the top dead skin cells and act as a gentle exfoliant.
Skin Smoothing Polish – Once the pumpkin enzymes have had time to work their magic, massage a small amount of Skin Smoothing Polish onto the skin prior to rinsing off the mask. As its name implies, the Skin Smoothing Polish will literally polish your skin, buffing away any remaining dull, top layer skin cells revealing smoother, more radiant skin.
Rinse & Tone – Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water to remove the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask and Skin Smoothing Polish. Immediately after, apply 12 sprays of Calm Down Toner to a cotton round or my favorite silken wipes and gently wipe the face down with it.
Firming Peptide Serum – After toning the skin, apply 1 pump of Firming Peptide Serum to the entire face for an uplifting boost of hydration. Bonus, this serum is also formulated with a powerful bend of age-defying peptides!
Finish with YOUR Customized Routine – Follow with the rest of your customized skincare routine to round out your at home facial and you’re ready to glow!
While it’s not quite the same as a professional treatment, it’s a close second and is a great self-care moment that will leave your skin glowing, hydrated and feeling incredibly revived!
