While going out to your favorite salons is quite difficult nowadays, it should not be an excuse not to treat your skin with some pampering every now and then. It might surprise you that giving yourself a facial can do wonders not just for your skin, but for your mood as well.
There are a lot of ways to get a spa-worthy treatment at home without spending much on different beauty products. You can utilize the ones that you already have lying around your house and make your own concoction of beauty recipes. Here are some tips you can try while you are cooped up in your home.
Make it a special event. Spend quality time with your top of the line skincare products at home. Having a facial, even at home, should be different from your other daily skincare routine. Follow these simple steps to give your skin a special treatment it deserves: Cleanse, exfoliate, mask, then treat (which includes applying serum, moisturizer, and eye cream).
Create and customize your own recipe. Add a bit of a twist to your basic facial routine by tailoring each step to suit your skin type and its needs. For example, use a creamy cleanser for dry skins, while a foaming formula is best for those who have oily skins.
You can also mix and match masks to your liking and apply them to different parts of your face.
Always assess what your skin needs. It is important to use the right kind of products for your skin type, but it is also important to assess your complexion’s current state.
There are factors that you should be aware of that can cause changes on your skin like the season, exposure to the sun, and stress. Yes, you heard it right! Stress can also cause the skin to behave in an unusual way, according to experts.
Utilize what you currently have. Be creative and learn to improvise. A recommended amount of oil mixed to your mask will boost its skin-softening benefits. Or, a mixture of vitamin C serum and eye cream will give you instant bright-looking eyes when used as an eye mask.
Consult your dermatologist or estheticians. When all else fails, seek the guidance of your doctor or estheticians on how to keep a happy and healthy skin. Most of them are doing remote consultations nowadays. By doing this, you are not only helping yourself, but you are also helping these experts to continue doing what they do best.
