How To Get Glowing Skin Without Expensive Spa Facials
We all know that one of the best ways to relax is to get a facial. But who has the time (or money) to go to a salon for a professional facial? Not me, that's for sure! That's why I've put together this list of DIY facial recipes that you can make right at home. With just a few simple ingredients, you'll be on your way to glowing skin in no time!
The Best Facials Start with Clean skin
Before you start slathering on any masks or scrubs, it's important to make sure that your face is clean. This will help ensure that the products are able to penetrate your skin and do their job properly.
1.Use a gentle cleanser to remove any dirt, makeup, or oil from your skin. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to use a cleansing oil or milk instead of a traditional cleanser.
2. Exfoliate your skin. This step is important because it will help to remove any dead skin cells that could clog your pores. You can use a store-bought exfoliator or make your own by mixing 1 cup of sugar with 1/4 cup of olive oil.
Once your face is clean, it's time to start pampering!
Face Mask Recipes
One of my favorite things about giving myself a facial at home is that I can customize my own face mask. Not feeling so great? Mix up a mask with some honey and lemon juice to brighten your complexion. Or, if you're dealing with dry skin, try a hydrating mask made with avocado and olive oil. The possibilities are endless! Here are some of my favorite face mask recipes:
-Honey and Lemon Face Mask: Mix 2 tablespoons of honey and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Apply to your face and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
-Avocado and Olive Oil Face Mask: Mash 1/2 an avocado and mix in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Apply to your face and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
-Banana and Yogurt Face Mask: Mash 1/2 a banana and mix in 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt. Apply to your face and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.
Face Scrub Recipes
In addition to using a face mask, I also like to give myself a good scrub. This helps exfoliate my skin and remove any dead skin cells that might be hanging around. Plus, it feels amazing! If you're dealing with oily skin, try a scrub made with baking soda and water. For dry skin, mix together brown sugar and olive oil. And if you want something in between, oatmeal makes an excellent gentle scrub for all skin types.
Here are some of my favorite scrub recipes:
-Baking Soda Scrub: Mix 1 tablespoon of baking soda with 2 tablespoons of water. Apply to your face in circular motions, then rinse with warm water and pat dry.
-Brown Sugar Scrub: Mix 1/2 cup of brown sugar with 1/4 cup of olive oil . Apply to your face in circular motions, then rinse with warm water or pat dry .
