How To Give Yourself A Pampering Facial At Home

How To Give Yourself A Pampering Facial At Home

It is always nice to give yourself a facial at home as it is not just relaxing, but can also help you to maintain supple, smooth and bright skin. 

However, this is not an easy task as it requires the right skills and products, which also explains why estheticians go through years of training and many hands-on experiences before being able to perform a facial treatment. 

That is not to say giving yourself a pampering facial at home is not possible though – here are some tips that have been tried and proven to work that will be helpful, including the MD Dermatics products you should use. 

Read on to find out more. 

1. Always double cleanse

If you have always been double cleansing on a daily basis, you are on the right track. But if double cleansing is something you are hearing for the first time, it is high time to start doing it. 

Double cleansing involves using an oil-based cleanser to remove makeup, dirt and gunk on the skin; followed by using a water-based facial cleanser to thoroughly cleanse the skin of any remaining impurities. 

This step prepares the skin for the rest of your skincare routine and makes sure the products you use will be able to work their magic. Try the MD Dermatics GentleWash Gentle Cleanser that uses hydration-locking ingredients to leave your skin feeling clean yet smooth and comfortable. 

2. Exfoliate gently

Next, exfoliating your skin gently is key to removing dead skin cells to allow your skincare products to penetrate deeply into the dermis. 

We recommend using exfoliators that contain salicylic acid, like the MD Dermatics Clarifying Scrub, as it removes excess sebum and unclogs pores. 

Always apply and gently rub exfoliators onto your skin and avoid harsh tugging to prevent micro-tears in your skin. 

3. Apply a mask

Extraction typically takes place after exfoliation but since you are not trained in this aspect, it is advisable to skip it and proceed with applying a mask. 

Sheet masks are easy to use but you will have to ensure you do not leave them on for too long, causing them to dry up and reabsorbing the serum that has already been deposited onto your skin. 

You can also try the MD Dermatics Cucumber Gel Masque instead. It is a cooling and soothing face mask that can help to reduce redness after exfoliating and prevent any blemish flare-ups. Simply apply a generous amount and rinse off after 15 to 20 minutes. 

4. Remember to moisturise

While your skin will feel smooth and supple after applying a mask, it is still necessary to apply moisturiser to lock in hydration and let it act as a protective barrier to prevent dust and pollution from damaging your skin. 

The type of moisturiser you use depends on your skin type as well; oily skin may benefit more from a lightweight gel moisturiser while dry skin may require a thicker, cream-like consistency for maximum hydration. 

The MD Dermatics Ultra Skin Revitalizer is perfect for normal to dry skin while the Blemish Control Gel is more suitable for oily and acne-prone skin. 

5. Massage everything in

Extraction Facials to Improve Blood Flow and Soothe Inflammation

It is not a full facial experience without a face massage! You can try using tools such as a roller or gua sha to improve blood flow and soothe inflammation while helping the moisturiser to absorb better into your skin. 

But if you do not have these tools, massaging your face using your fingers works too. This final step promotes healthy skin by increasing blood circulation to reduce the appearance of acne whilst lifting saggy skin at the same time. 

Here are some tips:

  • Rub your fingers into your temples using a circular motion
  • Gently pinch your eyebrows using your thumb and index finger
  • Press into your jaw and move from your chin to the outer portion of your jaw
  • Use your fingertips to gently tap all over your face

These five steps will help you to give yourself an effective facial at home but if you would rather leave this task to the professionals, consider Indulgence Beauty.
