Raise your hand if you could use an amazing facial right about now?!
Well, if you’ve ever experienced the magic of a HydraFacial, then you also probably know how expensive they can be! While I would love to treat myself to a facial once a week, it’s just not in the budget! But right now, while we are all under self-quarantine, its a great time to give ourselves a little self-love & self-care while our skin reaps the benefits! Be sure to watch the video for all the hot tips, but here are some quick details to note:
-Consider this your facial steamer PSA: Yes, the one I have featured is $150….but to be fair, it was on my Christmas list, so thanks MOM! While there are plenty of other steamers on the market (and I know because I have tested a good handful of them) the biggest issue I have with the cheaper ones is safety. WE ARE DEALING WITH PIPING HOT WATER, LADIES. This is not the time to get a burn because the water splashes out and burns the delicate skin on your face. HOME TIP: You could actually boil water on the stovetop and use that steam….just please be careful for splashing! I explain all this in more detail in the video!
-The 4 at home facial steps: 1) Cleanse your skin…I actually prefer a double cleanse!, 2) Exfoliate or peel (I break down all your options in the video!), 3) Treat with a serum of choice depending on what your skin needs, 4) Moisturize!
Let me know in the comments how you have been treating yourself with self-care during this extra time spent at home!
