How To: D.I.Y. Spa Treatment - Easy, Breezy Facial

I didn't start getting facials until around the time of my wedding. Although they are totally and utterly amazing, I guess I was just always more of a massage person. Spending my hard earned monies on both treatments was just getting too expensive, so I began reading up on mini facials that could be done at home.

I'm not going to lie to you - there's nothing quite like a professional spa facial to help you relax, open up your pores, remove black and whiteheads and polish your face. But when you can only do it professionally every few months, this treatment works great for maintaining a healthy glow.

discover an easy breezy five step DIY at home facial treatment,

  • Begin by washing your face with a gentle cream or milk cleanser and exfoliate your skin softly and in small circular motions.
  • Next steam your face. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and if you like, you can add your favorite essential oil to the water for aromatherapy benefits.
  • Once the water is boiling, turn off the stove and let the water cool for about five minutes. Then, take a clean towel, and drape it over your head and stand a little bit less than a foot away from the water. Let the steam work its magic for about ten minutes and then wipe the water off of your face with a new, clean towel.
  • Here's the tricky part. Most people will tell you not to do extractions yourself at home, however, I tend to go for anything that looks white with a gentle and careful touch. If you dare try this yourself, never use your fingers to squeeze - use two Q-tips to apply pressure to the whitehead. If you don't have any whiteheads, skip this part and move right to a clarifying mask. Apply a mud, or a clay mask to your face and allow it to dry for about 15 minutes.
  • Then, rinse off your face with tepid water first and then finish with a cool rinse to close your clean pores. Lastly, apply a serum (if you choose) and then a moisturizer to your face and your eye area.
