Facial At Home

What You Need:
. Gentle cleanser
. Exfoliating scrub
. Warm water & a washcloth
. Clay-based or cream facial mask (based on skin type)
. Basic moisturizer

Cleanse the skin
You’ll want to wash the face to remove any grime or dirt. If you have oily or combination skin, try a cleanser like Clinique Wash Away Gel Cleanser or Purpose Gentle Cleansing Wash . For dry skin, your best bet is a cream or milky cleanser such as Cetaphil .

Using your fingers, rub a gentle exfoliating scrub in a circular motion on your face. Concentrate on the areas around your nose and forehead or if you have combo skin, work harder on the areas that tend to be ‘greasy.’ Rinse your face well since exfoliating scrubs tend to be drying. Clinique makes a simple, but excellent face scrub.

Fill your sink with warm water, dip a washcloth in and press to your face. Repeat 2-3 times.

The mask
For oily skin, use a clay-based face mask. For dry skin, go for a hydrating gel or cream mask.
Apply the mask, avoiding the areas around the eyes. Keep it on for 10-20 minutes (or, according to the directions on the product). Rinse completely.

Smooth on a soothing with basic moisturizer.
