How to Give Yourself an At-Home Facial

Carving out self-care time is an important part of leading a healthy life. Developing a healthy skin care routine is part of taking care of yourself, and an at-home facial is not only healthy, but fun! Here’s the steps and products you need to get glowing skin.

1. Double Cleanse

The first step in any facial is to cleanse the skin, and to thoroughly do so, you need a double cleanse. Use the RM Gentle Glycolic Cleanser in order to wash away any dead skin cells, makeup, or debris that may be on your face. Wash your face with warm water, and rinse for a second time in order to achieve that double cleanse.

2. Exfoliate

After double cleansing, you must exfoliate so as to slough off the top layer of skin cells and excess oils; this also helps for other ingredients to be absorbed by the skin, in later steps. Try the SkinMedica® AHA BHA Exfoliating Cleanser, an exfoliating cleanser that improves the appearance of skin tone and texture. The formula contains four alpha hydroxy acids (AHA’s) that provide mild exfoliation to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and enhance skin texture.

3. Mask

Now’s the fun part– applying your mask! Apply the RM Bio-Peptide Facial Mask to your face to re-hydrate your skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. With key ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, with this mask, you can ensure the improvement of wrinkles, moisturized skin, and an increase in collagen production. Apply this mask and leave on for 10 minutes then rinse with cool water.

4. Apply Serum

After applying the mask, apply the SkinMedica® TNS Essential Serum®, a powerful blend of growth factors and peptides for an all-in-one skin rejuvenating treatment. 92% of patients rated their skin as looking healthier and more youthful after using the product in just 2 weeks!

5. Apply Hydration

It important to remember to hydrate your skin even if you have oily skin. This will aid in overall improvement of the texture and radiance of your skin. The SkinMedica® Rejuvenative Moisturizer is a great option for all skin types.

6. Apply Eye Serum

With the SkinMedica® Instant Bright Eye Cream, you will re-energize and rejuvenate the skin and tone around your eyes by reducing dark circles, sagging, puffiness and overall visible signs of aging. This serum can be applied to the lower and upper eyelids. For an added treat, you can apply the SM Instant Bright Eye Mask before applying your serums.

7. Apply Sunscreen

The final step for your at-home facial is to apply the SkinMedica® Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 34+. This product protects against harmful infrared rays, as UV exposure increases the risk of skin cancer and premature aging. Applying SPF protection is a step often skipped, but shouldn’t be forgotten, as it is key to achieving healthy skin.
