We tend to stick to the same three basics of skin care: cleanser, moisturizer and sun protection (if we remember). Of course, many women do face masks from time to time or destroy them on their faces, but there is one very important step that many tend to avoid too often: exfoliation.
Facial scrub is usually a cream-based product that contains little exfoliating pieces that, when massaged all over the skin, help smooth the skin by physically removing dry dead skin cells. They have existed for many, many years, and although the formulas have changed a little, they are still necessary for the care of your skin. Using facial scrub can make your skin beautiful, young, soft and radiant. Unlike ordinary soap or detergent, facial scrub uses small particles, beads or chemicals to get rid of old skin cells and release new ones in a process known as peeling.
Apply it to slightly
moisturized skin and massage in a circular motion on the entire face for
60 seconds. The key to achieving the best results with a face scrub is
not a strong pressure on the skin, as this will cause irritation even
when using scrubs with round grains. If you feel that your skin can use
more peeling, it is better to use it for longer (90 seconds) than to
apply additional pressure. Wash and use tonic, serum and moisturizer.
What you will need…
gentle facial cleanser
face mask (clay-based for oily skin, cream or gel mask for dry skin)
Clean. Remove all makeup and then wash your face, neck and ears with a good facial cleanser.
Exfoliate. Using your fingers gently rub an exfoliating facial scrub in small circular motions all over your face. Make sure you focus on areas around your nose and forehead. If certain areas of your face are oilier than others, give that section an extra scrub. Go the extra mile and do a lip scrub too! Click here for my DIY lip scrub recipe.
Steam. There are a few ways to steam your face (over the stove, using a steamer), but the safest way is to do the washcloth trick. Fill your sink with warm water and soak a washcloth in it. Ring out the towel and then press it to your face. Repeat this 2 to 3 times.
Mask. If you have oily skin, use a clay mask. For dry skin, I suggest using a hydrating cream or gel mask. Depending on the mask, leave it on for the suggested amount of time and then rinse completely. (DIY Alert: Making your own mask is very easy. An orange and yogurt mask is especially simple. Mix 1 tablespoon of plain Greek yogurt with the juice of about one fourth of an orange. Spread the mixture evenly over your face and rinse after 5 to 10 minutes.)
Hydrate. Last by not least, moisturize! Smooth a nice, thick moisturizer over your face and neck. http://designerplanet.in/ #designerplanet
