If the stresses and strains of life are taking their toll on your skin; then taking the time out to do a DIY facial once a week can make a huge difference. Not only do you get a small window of relaxation but your skin gets a well-deserved pampering. Our skin is exposed to the elements, pollution, UV rays, hormonal changes and even our diet, and needs to be cleansed, nourished and protected if it is to look its best.
A DIY facial doesn’t need to take forever although it will be more beneficial if you don’t feel rushed or pushed for time. Always start by cleansing the skin thoroughly, massaging gently to dislodge and remove makeup and impurities. Using a precleanser before cleansing will ensure that your skin is as clean as possible and ready for the next step.
Spray a light mist of a toner like the MultiActive Toner over your face to soothe the skin and restore moisture levels. You can then follow this with an exfoliator in order to gently remove any dead skin cells that sit on the surface of the skin and can lead to blocked pores and blemishes. Exfoliating will also facilitate the deeper absorption of any active ingredients that are subsequently applied to the skin.
