How to Have Your Own Facial at Home
Who needs a spa or parlor visit to get the same glow!
Don’t we just love getting pampered at the spa? The soothing music, the pleasant fragrance, the well-deserved time off from your hectic routine and most of all, the loving care that your skin receives. It’s necessary to set some time aside to really give your skin the care it deserves – but we all know that spa sessions come with a hefty price tag.
The good news is that you don’t always need to head to the spa or a salon to get a facial. You can do it at the comfort of your home too, and at a fraction of the price you would spend at a spa!
Read on to know how:
1. The right setting
Did you know that stress shows on your face as dull skin, worry lines and can even lead to premature aging? Before you begin your facial at home, we suggest you create a calm and soothing environment to help you forget the stressors of daily life.
Play some soft music, dim the lights, brew a cup of herbal tea to sip as you relax and move to do your facial step by step.
2. Cleanse your skin
To make sure that your skin receives the full benefits of everything you pamper it with, you have to first make sure that it is absolutely clean. Cleansing your face is the first step to your facial as it will remove dirt, pollution particles and makeup from your face. This will ensure that your skin receives the full benefits of every product you use next.
WOW Skin Science Micellar Water Facial Cleanser & Makeup Remover is the perfect product to kick-start your home facial. Use a cotton ball to gently massage it on your face and neck to remove dirt and grime without drying your skin out. This gentle cleanser preferred by makeup artists and models globally contains micelles (tiny natural oil molecules) that softly lift up and remove impurities and stale makeup without removing skin’s own moisture and natural protective oils. It works better than lathering soaps by keeping your skin moisturised. Its key bioactives include 100% Pure Lavender Hydrosol, Aloe Vera Leaf Juice and Cucumber Extract for nourishing skincare.
3. Steam it up
Steaming your face has so many benefits! It deep cleanses your skin by opening and unclogging pores – something that helps reduce breakouts. It also eliminates and prevents blackheads and whiteheads by melting hardened sebum and softening blackhead plugs. Moreover, it improves circulation to fight aging and helps your skin better absorb the full benefits of all the products you use on it.
We suggest you steam your face with a facial steamer. If that is not available, no worries! Simply use a bowl of steaming water by draping a towel over your head and keeping your face a safe distance away. You can also use a towel soaked in hot water directly on your face to steam it.
Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, reduces pores and promotes growth of new cells. A gentle scrub will go a long way in helping you get that flawless glow you’ve always wanted.
WOW Skin Science Arabica Coffee Scrub is a timeless favourite for improving circulation and hydrating your skin while gently eliminating dirt and opening clogged pores. It contains Organic Arabica Coffee Grounds, Shea Butter & Coconut Oil – premium ingredients to ensure your skin gets nothing but the best!
5. Give a massage
Massage increases blood circulation and helps add more glow to skin. Massage your face using forefinger and middle finger using circular motions. Begin with forehead’s middle and then move to the temples. Then work on nose and cheeks. Wrap up by massaging lips, chin and jaws.
For extra skin benefits, take a dollop of WOW Skin Science Aloe Vera Gel, spread generously all over your face and then do the facial massage.
6. Relax with a face mask
Easily our most favourite part! Though maintaining a daily skincare routine is important, it is also important to show your skin some extra loving care every once in a while. A face mask to target your problem areas will do just that. Moreover, it’s the perfect way to relax and enjoy the music you so lovingly chose, isn’t it?
We recommend WOW Activated Charcoal Face Mask that gently removes oil, dirt and toxins, helps combat blackheads and shrinks pores to detoxify your skin. Suitable for all skin types, it’s the perfect product to restore your skin’s health and get a radiant complexion. Simply put it on your face and neck, wait for a bit, and then wash it off. You’ll see the difference from the first use itself.
Follow these steps to give yourself a luxurious facial at home. Do this at least twice a month and we promise you – you’ll see the difference!
