Do you do home facials? How often? or not at all? or do you splurge once in a while and go to the spa? 

Every Sunday, usually at night before heading to bed I do my at home facial ritual. I've been doing this for years and each week it varies. One week, I will concentrate on moisture or deep cleansing but every week I incorporate exfoliation and a anti aging mask.

A home facial does not have to be complicated and it can be done in about a half hour. Use the basic steps below as a guide for your home facial and see the products I been using for this last past year that have been my go to products. 

Steps to a great home facial:

1. Remove
your makeup with an appropriate eye or face makeup remover, I like to use a micellar water (keep an eye out for my coming post on my top favourite micellar cleansing waters)

2. Cleanse
use your daily cleanser according to your skin type to remove any traces of dirt and makeup 

3. Tone
this step is optional, I used a toner for years but now I skip it since my skin has changed with age. 

4. Exfoliate
this step is key for any skin type. Use the appropriate product for your skin type. Exfoliation will remove any dead skin that is on the surface and do a deeper cleansing of your pores.

5. Masks
use a facial mask according to your needs, moisture, deep cleansing, anti aging. there are so many masks on the market at every price point that you need to try a few to see which one works best for your skin. 
Masks come in different forms, peel off, rinse off, harden, activate with water, warming etc. They vary from skin conditions and skin types. for example most deep cleansing mask will be peel off.
also, don't be afraid to use more than one mask during your weekly facial. I like to do a deep cleansing mask every week and alternate with anti aging and moisturizing 

6. Moisturize
apply your serums, eye cream and your night time moisturizer to finish  And that is it.
