3 Reasons Why You Need A Facial- How to DIY at Home

By  | 

Most of us can relate to “me time,” and I know that life gets busy sometimes, but when we look in the mirror we are often reminded that we have been neglecting ourselves.  The mirror unfortunately can not lie, and that being said, it is time for some “me time.”


Facials are an essential key to healthy, glowing skin. By regularly performing at-home facials you can even out the look of your skin tone, enjoy deep cleansing benefits, and experience overall rejuvenation. Giving yourself a facial is a gorgeous form of self-love (and a great way to get to know your skin).  Here are 3 reasons why you need a facial:

1.  Cleans Out Clogged Pores And Blackheads

Rarely is anyone’s skin perfect. And even those of you who were born with perfect skin have found a way to leave it not so perfect with sun exposure, dehydration, etc.  Even though it is great for a professional to evaluate your skin, it’s easy to observe imperfections in the skin.  Although a facial will not give immediate perfect results, it will surely help.

The pores in your skin can get clogged with oil, dry or dead skin cells, and everyday dirt and debris. At times, the pores can clog when the skin is inflamed due to excess white blood cells.

It is very important to keep the pores free of clogs to prevent blackheads and acne. The best way to get rid of clogged pores is to follow a good daily skin care regimen. Regular exfoliation of your skin will remove dead skin cells, oil, dirt and other impurities that lead to clogged pores.

2.  Hydrates the Skin

Hydration is super important for youthful skin. It doesn’t matter how old you are, how oily or dry your skin is, hydration is an important ready why get a facial. Our skin cells depend on water to survive. For those of you who have dry and flaky skin, as you skin gets dehydrated, you will experience even less oil in your skin. And if you experience oily skin then the more dehydrated your skin, the more oily it gets. This is why it is so important to get a regular facial.

3.  Fix What Bothers You

A facial is an opportunity to find out how to fix your skin. We don’t all have flawless skin. We may have age spots, irritation, oily skin, redness, etc.  Many of use suffer from acne scars, and problematic skin.  A great facial at home is a start, if you are unable to pay spa prices right off.  You are probably wondering, how do I do a facial at home?

Doing a facial at home, is not as daunting at it may seem.  It’s actually quite simple, with the right facial it can all be made easy.  Here are a few simple steps how to do a facial at home:

To start, wash your hands to avoid transferring dirt and oils onto your face. Then rinse your face with lukewarm water — too hot and you might break capillaries, too cold and you pores will close up. Now you’re ready to apply cleanser. To apply properly, gently move your middle and ring fingers in small upward circles. Rinse the cleanser, and now you are ready to apply the facial.  IMG_1581

Here I used #Instapeel InstantPeel is a natural solution made by Earthen formulated to peel away dead skin cells, debris and impurties.  Created as a natural alternative to glycolic acid peels and dermabrasion, InstantPeel’s combination of proteins and enzymes naturally and gently peels away dead skin cells impurities. But unlike most chemical skin peels and facial scrubs, InstantPeelTM is sensitization-tested and proven safe for even the most delicate skin.

The proof is right at your fingertips: InstantPeel is so easy to use. The skin peel action starts within seconds of application.  How does InstantPeel work?

    • InstantPeel works best when used in the shower. Let your face steam for five minutes so that skin is moist and supple.
    • Open the InstantPeel packet and squeeze a small amount at a time onto your fingertips. As you massage InstantPeel onto your face and neck, individual peels of dead skin will emerge. There’s no need to rub, as with facial scrubs, and there’s no irritation or burning so often associated with glycolic acid peels, chemical skin peels or dermabrasion.
    • Continue to massage in InstantPeel until the dead skin peeling ceases. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. In just 7 minutes, you’ve revealed your skin’s natural vibrancy and youthful glow.

My skin feels great.  My skin feels clean, my pores have shrunk, and my skin has a beautiful glow.  Even if you decided to try another facial that you find at a local store, or a natural home remedy found through pinterest images, it is a great start to improving your skin.  Try it at home, and let me know how it works for you, I love to hear from you.
