With the economy as it is today, many people are looking for shortcuts when it comes to their skin care routines. Homemade facials can save you time and money. One of the benefits of home facials is that they are naturally better for your skin than the facial preparations filled with chemicals that are available in the stores.
Making your own facial is easy to do – you'll just need to have all the natural ingredients on hand. These ingredients are easy to find and inexpensive to buy in grocery stores. Facials are rejuvenating, so if you regularly have these ingredients in your home, then you can give yourself a homemade facial once a week.
Before applying a homemade face scrub, remove all your jewelry, including your earrings because some natural substances do not react well with metal jewelry. Smooth all your hair from your face using a headband. You may want to use an old bandana if you are worried about a headband that would be stained by the facial scrub. Wash your face with your normal cleanser to remove all traces of makeup, and make sure that when you apply your face mask, you follow exactly all the instructions. You may want to set a timer so you know when to remove the facial scrub from your skin ..
