How to Do Your Own Facial
Does your skin look drab and dull? Turn it around with this step by- step facial in time for Valentine’s Day.
Step 1: First Cleanse
To cleanse your skin thoroughly, always cleanse twice. Some ranges offer oil as a pre-cleanser, which removes make-up and grime brilliantly.
Follow with a cream, milk or foam cleanser, depending on your skin type. Remember to include your neck and décolleté.
Step 2: Deep Cleanse (Exfoliate)
Exfoliation removes dead cells so your skin looks more radiant and other products can
penetrate more effectively. Choose an exfoliator that suits your skin type: granular if it’s
normal, cream if it’s delicate, chemical if it’s sensitive, problematic, or enzymatic, which can be used on most skin types.
Step 3: Warm Compress and Facial Massage
Soak a face cloth in warm water, squeeze out excess and hold it over skin to boost
circulation and dilate pores. Wipe off product residue. Follow with a facial massage, unless your skin is oily. Gently work a rich cream into skin with little round upward movements.
Step 4: Mask
Apply a mask without removing the cream. Choose a hydrating, firming, stimulating, refining or nourishing formula, depending on your greatest skin-care concern. Leave the mask on for 15 minutes. This is a good time to soak in the bath. Make eye pads from cotton wool and alcohol-free toner and place them over your eyes. Relax for 10 minutes and then rinse off.
Step 5: Serum or Ampoule and Cream
Finally, apply serum and day or night cream, as well as your eye cream or gel. If it’s day-time, don’t forget sun protection. Your skin should look invigorated, smooth and bright. Check out Olay’s range of creams for the one that best hydrates your skin. You can choose from all types of lotions that address dry, oily and combination skin.
Tip: A facial is great for boosting skin. But it’s daily skin-care and the use of an excellent
sun protection cream that rewards you in the long run.
Finally, why not get your man to join you for a facial? It can be a fun Valentine’s Day bonding activity where you can both relax and get groomed at the same time! He can give himself a good shave with his Gilette razors while you can have fun with all your creams.
