Revitalize your skin- in just one day!
Everyone likes to start a new year off with a fresh new outlook on life, there is no better way to feel refreshed than to have your skin look revitalized and radiant. Here is how to get glowing, refreshed skin in just one day.
Step One – Steam your face
Steaming you face is the best way to thoroughly deep clean your pores. When steaming your face you widen any clogged pores and soften the skin in order to cleanse more easily the impurities, the traces of makeup, the dust, the sebaceous secretions as well as the dead skin cells.
Boil a pan of water with herbs (for oily skin you can use thyme, peppermint or lemon; for sensitive and dry skin use chamomile or lime; for normal skin can use rosemary or lavender) and steam your face for approximately 10/ 15 minutes.
Step Two –Exfoliate
Exfoliating your skin gently right after steaming your face is the best way to make your skin glowing again as you will be able to remove debris, makeup that might have been clogged into your pores and most importantly you will remove the dead skin cells that usually make a dull, patchy complexion. Use a mild exfoliator that suits your skin type and scrub with gentle circular motions, avoiding the eye area. Don’t exfoliate your skin for more than 2/ 3 minutes, otherwise you can irritate it. When you exfoliate your face you remove the dead surface skin cells and the oil that cause pores to clog and lead to problems like blackheads, whiteheads, pimples and acne.
Step 3 – Apply a mask
The optimum time for applying a facial mask is after steaming your face, because the pores are open and the mask will be able to penetrate deeply into the skin. Choose a face mask that suits your skin type and apply it once or twice a week. There are great firming, nourishing, purifying and hydrating facial masks on the market specially designed for every skin type.
Step 4 – Nourish your skin
You cannot expect to have glowing skin if you don’t nourish it properly. Right before going to bed apply a thick layer of nourishing face cream. Look for a product that contains more natural ingredients such as Aloe Vera, honey, chamomile, almond oil, olive oil, vitamins (especially vitamin C), minerals and essential oils. In the morning cleanse your face with a mild facial cleanser and gently massage your face with light, circular motions to improve blood circulation and to make your skin glowing.
Look after your skin and stay glowing lovelies!
