Have started doing my feet weekly and it's quite blissful I don't know how to do a home facial or what the purpose is other than clean the skin? For feet it is clear - ie to soften them. So what is. A facial aiming to do and what cheap ish products can I use please? I have heard that unless facials are done correctly the skin can be dragged ? Don't want worse skin.! I don't realty have a particular problem to Adress as I have clear skin . It's more mantinance and maybe revitalising ? I'm 50 .
Facials are all about the way you apply products. They should do a number of things:
- Exfoliate, so they get rid of dead skin and debris - so your skin looks clearer - Massage - boosts blood flow to the surface, so again improves the look and health of skin because of the better circulation - Moisturise - Be relaxing! Your face is very expressive, so holds lots of tension from all your facial expressions - relaxing helps release the tension
There's loads of videos of facial self-massage on youtube, and I think Caroline Hirons has directions on her blog too. Use a cleansing oil or gel - I've been using Body Shop Nutriganics (?) gel cleanser and that works really well, but if you do want to treat yourself then Origins Clean Energy is beautiful for facial massage
