A natural skincare routine can do wonders for your health and confidence. Our skin is the largest organ in our body, so taking good care of it is necessary. Many people rely on the occasional facial to cleanse, nourish and boost their skin. Today, we will be talking about a natural home facial so that you don’t go too long before giving your skin the attention it deserves.
The Benefits of a Home Facial
There are many benefits to a DIY facial at home. One of the best things is that you have complete control over your products, ensuring they’re made naturally and ethically. Also, your own home routine is an excellent way of maintaining the health and well-being of your skin. And of course, when it comes to cost, a routine at home will be much more efficient as you can use the products again and again.
Now, let’s talk about what your own routine entails. In a nutshell, the premise behind a facial is to deep cleanse your skin and pores and then hydrate and moisturize your skin to give it the glow it needs. A professional facial is recommended every four to six weeks, and when it comes to dealing with blackheads and extractions, it’s best to leave it to the professionals.
The rest, however, can quickly be done at home to maintain all the benefits of a facial. Like everything else, there’s no quick fix, and healthy skin requires consistent attention.
A Step-to-Step Guide
Okay. Let’s talk about the steps to a natural and healthy home facial. We’ve even got some fantastic homemade recipes we will share with you.
Step 1: First things first. Cleanse your face and neck area and make sure there is no makeup or dirt left on your skin. A Black African Soap will do wonders for your skin. It will deeply clean your skin, but it will also leave your face feeling soft and nourished. In addition, the soaps are 100 percent vegan and made ethically.
Step 2: The next step is to exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin and impurities. The best part is that you can easily make a straightforward and effective scrub at home. You have to mix your favourite oil (coconut, olive oil, sweet almond oil) with sugar in equal parts and add a few drops of tea tree oil. Gently massage the scrub on your face in a circular motion, and then wash with water. This natural recipe will clean your skin without drying it out.
Step 3: Your next step is to steam your face to open your pores. Here you can place your head over a bowl of hot water with a towel over your head. Make sure you keep your distance to keep safe. Another way is to place a warm towel on your skin and gently pad it down. Ensure that the towel isn’t hot and that you don’t burn your skin. The next step is usually extraction, where you remove blackheads. However, it is best to keep that for the professionals.
Step 4: Once you’ve opened the pores, it’s time to put on a hydrating mask, sit back and relax. Check out these homemade recipes and choose one that suits your needs.
Step 5: It’s now time to tone your skin, making sure you close the pores and prepare for the final step. Again, it’s essential to select a natural and alcohol-free toner so that you don’t dry out your skin.
Step 6: Finally, you’re ready to hydrate and moisturize your skin. If you have dry skin, start with the organic oil of your choice. Sweet almond, rosehip, and coconut are great choices. Make sure you finish up with a nutrient-rich TruSkin Vitamin C Serum for Face, Anti Aging Serum with Hyaluronic Acid cream to keep all that goodness on your skin and protect it from the environment.
A natural and simple home facial can ensure that your skin looks and feels its best. However, it’s essential to take time for yourself, sit back and relax while giving your skin all the nutrients and goodness it deserves. Remember that while performing a skincare routine does incredible things for the skin, it needs to be accompanied by a healthy diet and lifestyle. This means eating good food, exercising and drinking lots of water.
