Beauty How-To: Give Yourself a Facial

Your skin needs a pick-me-up but spa prices can be steep. Give yourself a facial in the comfort of your own home with this quick and easy guide to pampering your complexion salon-style.

Prepare Your Face by Cleaning With Water:
To give your skin the clean start it needs, prep your face by rinsing it with water or washing it with gentle face soap. Towel off your skin until it’s completely dry.

Exfoliating your face will remove dead skin and reveal newer, more beautiful skin. Use an exfoliating scrub, or use an exfoliating face brush, and thoroughly rinse afterwards.

Create a Cleansing Mask:
To make your own cleansing mask add a touch of water to broken-up four non-coated aspirin tablets; then stir in a few squirts of honey and some mashed up avocado to complete the recipe.

Apply the Mask:
Apply the face mask evenly and leave it on for 20 minutes.

Rinse Mask Off:
When you’re ready, thoroughly rinse off the mask with water. Using a damp washcloth will make the process easier.

Once you’ve washed off the face mask and dried your skin, apply your favorite moisturizer. Keep up with a regular cleansing and moisturizing.
