Create a spa experience at home
At home mini facial is a great way to create some "me time" and indulge in this fun experience, without breaking the bank! Plus, at the end of it all, your skin will love you.
Step 1. Start by cleansing your skin.
This can be done with your current cleansers, if you use our product line we recommend our Calming Aloe Vera Cleanser for normal to dry skin, for very dry skin use the Nourishing Rosehip Cleanser and for combined to oily, or oily skin (even acne skin) but not sensitive, use our Anti-Wrinkle Alpha Hydroxy Cleanser.
Step 2. If you are concerned about blackheads and your skin is not sensitive here's a tip:
Cleanser your skin with our Anti-Wrinkle Alpha Hydroxy Cleanser, remove using cold water and reapply only on the area of concern (with blackheads). Leave on while steaming your face in total of 25 minutes, but every 10 minutes massage the area gently. Once done, the blackheads are much easier to remove.
Step 3. Use a toner to balance your skin's pH, also great to prime the skin for serum/moisturizer.
If you are using our products, use the Daily Rebalancing Toner for acne, combined or blotchy skin, for dry skin use our Moisturizing Toner with Hyaluronic and for mature skin use our Firming Toner with Alpha Lipoic Acid.
Step 4. Apply a serum. Tip: use it, while gently massaging your skin for 5 minutes. This creates not only a relaxing experience, but it really helps the skin to hydrate and absorb the serum, deeply into the skin's layers.
For combined to oily skin, use our Pure Hyaluronic Serum (as it is oil free), for normal to dry skin use Vitamin E Serum (a 2 in 1 product that acts as a moisturizer and serum).
Step 5. Apply the moisturizer. Tip: combine it with our new Elixirs and massage it for 5 minutes, to achieve the dewy, glowing skin after a facial.
For combined skin mix a small amount of Soothing Botanical Day Moisturizer with 2 drops of the Anti-Inflammatory or Bio Retinol Elixir, for acne prone skin or rosacea skin combine Soothing Botanical Day Moisturizer with Anti-Inflammatory Elixir (if your rosacea is pronounced, use only the Anti-Inflammatory Elixir or if your skin is very oily). If your skin is normal to dry use our Elasticity Repair Elixir combined with Soothing Day Cream or the Ultra Hydrating Cream (depending on season, or how dry your skin is) and for mature skin use our Powerful Lifting Day Cream mixed with the Bio Retinol Elixir.
Step 6. Enjoy your at home experience, make it a ritual if you wish and love your skin!
Ps. if you are missing/wanting to incorporate a mask into these steps, at the end you can use the following for the eye area (pps. Thank us later).
For puffy eyes: combine 1 part Rich Energizing Eye Cream with Caffeine with 2 parts Boost Defense Anti-Aging Night Cream. Apply this as a thick layer around the eyes, and take a warm bag of green tea apply it over the eyes. Relax for 15 minutes, and remove any excess.
For elasticity: Combine 1 part Elasticity Boost Eye Cream with 2 parts Boost Defense Night Cream.
And don't forget the neck area: you can apply a thick layer of our Powerful Lifting Day Cream or the Boost Defense Night Cream as a mask, let it sit for 15 minutes (ideally, while you're enjoying your eye mask).
