I have been spending some time perfecting the art of the at-home facial and I think I’m finally ready to share my little process here! I just posted a video to my Instagram TV with more details… enjoy!
How to do an At-Home Facial
one // wash your face!
This is obvious but of course, you want to start with clean dry skin! I love this yogurt cleanser from Korres. It’s really hydrating and takes of all my makeup without stripping.
two // peel!
I chose this peel from Dr. Dennis Gross as we’re doing things afterward. I love that you spend a minute doing the peel and then a minute neutralizing the peel, and then you are done. I love goop’s overnight peel but since we have several steps here, we do the two minute peel!
three // steam.
This facial steamer is one of my most favorite gadgets. It’s really what makes you feel like you’re at the spa and it opens up your pores so that your masks, serums, etc. can penetrate even deeper.
four // detox mask.
Right now for a detox, I’m very into Tata Harper’s clarifying mask. But you can use any sort of detox mask! I do this for 10-15 minutes.
five // hydrating mask.
You know I rave and rave about Summer Fridays’ Jet Lag mask and it’s for good reason. It’s so amazing and hydrating. I love this mask. Leave it on for 5-10 minutes and then tissue it off.
six // Nu-Face!
I promise to have a proper Nu-Face review for you soon but this contraption is just the BEST EVER. You can really see the results in the video; it is amazing for fine lines, LIFTING, and defining the jawline!
seven // serum.
eight // moisturize
The Lord Jones Acid Mantle Repair cream is really nice after a lot of aggressive stuff as it’s meant to restore the skin’s barrier after acids, retinol, etc etc!
nine // lip mask
The final step is a nice hydrating lip mask or balm. You can use any old one but I’m a big fan of this one from Tatcha!
