Why DIY Facial Is Important
A facial is the quickest way of cleansing, reviving, and brightening faded skin, leaving the skin light, soft and glowing. A facial also does a thorough job of relaxing frazzled nerves so that you emerge not only looking younger but also feeling fresher and more relaxed! A facial once or twice each month will ensure rejuvenated and fresh skin for a long time to come!
If you do not have the time or cannot afford the luxury of regular salon treatments, you can give yourself a facial at home! Choose a time when you can be undisturbed and quiet, and get everything ready before you start so that you can relax and really enjoy it!
Follow the routine below for a quick, at-home facial:
• Step 1
Tie your hair away from your face and neck, using a headband to pull any remaining hair away from your forehead.
• Step 2
Begin by removing your makeup using Hydra Sensi Milky Cleanser to remove all residue from the face. Cleanse your face and neck with Hydra Sensi Smoothing Polishing Cleanser and thoroughly remove.
• Step 3
The next step is a gentle exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, dirt, and bacteria allowing the skin to best absorb the other products. Use a simple, DIY exfoliant of organic coffee grounds, hot water, and warmed organic coconut oil or with Hydra Sensi Crystal Glow Polish.
If you wish to remove comedones (blackheads /whiteheads) on your face, apply DermaClean Clearapeutic Refiner Gel Masque for 5-10 mins. Take a warm towel and place on your face for 5 mins to open the pores. Afterwhich, wash off the mask and extract lightly.
• Step 4
My favourite step, massage. Massage your face for about 5 – 10 mins. I highly recommend you to do it as can firm your skin and reduce wrinkles!
• Step 5
Prepare a face mask suited to your skin type. On a thoroughly cleansed and exfoliated face, spread a fairly thick layer avoiding the mouth area and creating large circles round the eyes. Then, lie on your back and keep the mask on for 15 to 20 minutes. There are many options for creating an amazing mask at home but the one I recommend the most is a simple concoction of organic coconut oil, honey and fresh avocado.

• Step 6
When the mask is dry, wash your face and neck with lukewarm water, keeping your eyes closed. Dry your skin and apply your favorite toner that is best for your skin type.

• Step 7
Lastly, now that the skin is thoroughly cleansed, exfoliated, and the pores are open, it is time to apply skin serum and moisturizer to the face and neck. Spend some time massaging it in using upward, circular motions.
Massaging Your Skin
Massaging your face is another essential practice for healthy skin and can also be really relaxing! It is an effective way to counter wrinkles, and its results are obvious only if it is practiced regularly for an extended period of time.
In fact, I have this habit of massaging my face every day during shower using my favourite cleanser for about 1 min. There is no doubt that massage is highly beneficial for tightening facial tissues, increasing blood flow, stimulating nerves and thus, boosting collagen production. You should try it too!
The Art of Massaging
Slow Massage – This is the most common method of massage and the most relaxing. The secret is to massage slowly while patting the skin. Using the fleshy part of your fingertips, press the skin lightly with a slow, stroking motion. The process starts at the base of the neck at a slow speed. Stroking gives rest to the nerves and the vibration is useful in subduing pain that might be caused over more sensitive areas.
Fast Massage – The front half of both the palms are used to massage at speed, taking care to make a circular motion upwards.
Pressure Massage – This is a method when slow, deep pressure is applied by the fingertips and is very effective for removing pouches beneath eyes.
Stroking Massage – Cheeks are stroked with the tips of fingers and strokes are applied from the nose to the temples on both sides.
Pinching Massage – Effective for a sagging chin or wrinkles on the jawline, the skin is held, as in pinchers, between the thumb and fingers and gently massaged.
Friction Massage – This massage requires pressure on the skin while it is being moved over the underlying bone and muscle structures. Fingers or palms are usually best for this type of massage and hard movements are usually employed on the scalp while light movements are used on the face and neck.
Piano Playing Movements – This exercise develops facial muscles and makes them firm. It should be done with the fingers on the entire face, especially the cheek area.
It is essential to do a mini do-it-yourself facial at home at least once a month. Because after three or four weeks, your skin cells grow back. Facials help this process and assure your skin always glows. Regular facials will help you exfoliate the delicate skin on your face. Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, increases blood circulation, and leaves your face feeling clean and new. Having a facial helps to move the cell turnover process along so that your skin stays clear, clean, and toned. For those who are experiencing frequent breakouts or tend to have oilier skin, I would generally recommend having a facial more often during your acne flares using Dr. Keith Chrysler DermaClean Series. Results assured.
Facials are an important part of your health and wellness regimen.
