#FacialFriday: Our DIY facial
Don’t have the budget or the time to head for regular facials? Fancy a pamper in the comfort of your own living room, TV remote in hand? Chocolate within reach? Well, we’ve compiled a quick DIY facial that you can fix for yourself if you don’t fancy leaving your house this Friday.
Remove your make-up
First things first, remove all your make-up. Use your make-up remover of choice, whether that be a micellar water or an oil based remover, make your skin squeaky clean. But whatever you do, don’t use wipes! Always go for liquid removers that hydrate the skin at the same time. Soak your cotton wool pad and hold over your eye for 10 seconds for a fool proof way to get rid of that stubborn mascara.
Now’s the time to really deep clean your skin. Our Lift Off Purifying Cleanser is a fantastic everyday cleanser that deeply penetrates the skin, for a clean that purifies and unclogs the pores. If you’re more prone to oily skin, acne, or are suffering from a breakout, reach for our Lift Off Exfoliating Cleanser. This gently exfoliates, ridding the skin of excess oil.
Depending on your skin type, go for a scrub at this point. If you suffer from very sensitive skin, skip this step, there’s no need to exacerbate the skin. For those with less sensitive skin, a scrub is a fantastic way to rid your complexion of dead skin. Mixing your own sugar or salt scrub is the best way to know you’re using all natural, environmental products on your skin.
Restore the moisture in your skin by using a hydrating mask at this point. Our Bio Cellulose Facial Mask will plump the skin, leaving you with a dewy, hydrated complexion. If you fancy even more DIY, why not make your own mask? Smashed avocado or banana mixed with honey will hydrate and make your skin smell fantastic! If you don’t eat it beforehand that is…
Even though you’ve added all that moisture back into your skin with a mask, you need to penetrate that moisture deeply in order to feel the benefits for days after. Pick a highly hydrating moisturiser that really packs a punch. Our Space Anti-Age Night Renewal Cream is a very rich formula that hydrates the skin on an incredibly deep level. Wake up the next day with touch-ably soft skin, and feel the results yourself.
