How to Give Yourself a Facial
Although it's not the same as getting a facial from a talented esthetician, giving yourself one can still benefit your skin and do wonders for your mood. Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your at-home treatment. (1) Turn it into a special event. A facial should not be the same as your regular daily routine. Instead, pull out your top-shelf skincare products to cleanse, exfoliate, mask, and treat. (2) Customize it. Tailor each step of your facial to your skin's needs. Assess the current state of your complexion and factor in the season, stress, and sun exposure. (3) Improvise. Don't worry if your bathroom isn't stocked with a spa-worthy selection of products. You can improvise by cocktailing your favorite formulas to give your skin what it's craving.
