In the last article, we took a look at how to do your own facials at home as a regular part of your skincare routine. Incorporating a facial into your regimen can make all the difference to stressed-out skin.
Once cleansing, toning and exfoliating have been done, it is time to move on to the face masque. Face masques provide an excellent boost for the skin, delivering potent ingredients for an intensive treatment.
In order to get the most out of your facial, you will need to make sure you have chosen the right masque for your skin’s needs. Dry or mature skin will need intense hydration while oily skin will benefit from clay-based masques like Dermalogica’s Skin Refining Masque.
As well as choosing the masque that is best suited to your skin type, you will need to make sure you follow the instructions. Don’t be tempted to leave the masque on for longer than indicated as this could be counter-productive for your skin.
Once you have rinsed your face thoroughly, spritz your face with toner before applying a nourishing eye cream to the fragile skin around your eyes. Then, gently apply moisturiser to your face and neck to hydrate and soften your skin.
