One of the best ways in my opinion to practice self-care is, you guessed it “A facial”. I stay glowed up!!
Ladies, if you’re hands on then this post is for you. The last thing I want to do on my days off is roam around the concrete jungle or sit in a treatment room waiting on a technician only for them to rush through my service. Does that seem relaxing to you?
DIY at home facials are the best way to unwind and care for self after maybe a long stressful week of work or dealing with kids or what ever else you may have faced. The best part about it is you can use ingredients from your kitchen to achieve results you receive from going to the spa. A major upside to DIY facials, is it saves you money. Did somebody say Chi-Ching $$$$, for me that’s a skirt or dress from Zara or HM. Don’t Judge me!
From my experience I love two step facials because they give the best results. Strangers often approach me to compliment me about my skin. Yes, my mama gave me good genes but I can’t rely on genes to maintain my youthful appearance. Have you seen Pharell? he was my high school crush and he still looks the same, sigh. The man’s skin is as smooth as a baby’s bottom. His secret to flawless skin is that he exfoliates regularly. So, here it goes!
I start with an exfoliating scrub to remove the dead skin cells from the surface only to reveal radiance and help to even the skin tone. The exfoliating scrub also helps to keep my pores unplugged. The ingredients I use are Turmeric, Coconut oil, and Oats. Turmeric is good for treating acne, dark spots and wrinkles. The oats helps to exfoliate and remove the dead skin, while the coconut oil softens and hydrates.
This one’s pretty simple, I used seamoss gel. I make my gel with only water and usually add it to my smoothie. The seamoss mask is calming, soothes the skin and close up the pores. It also helps to tighten the skin. To make the experience more serene, I added a few drops of my favorite skin loving essential oils to both the scrub and the mask.
Moisturize! Personally, my favorite is Olehenriksen Sheer Transforming Perfecting moisturizer, but you can use whatever you normally use to hydrate your face.
There you have it, I have released my secret to staying glowed up, now you can too!
