DIY: Luxurious At-Home Facial

Hey everyone! In this post, I am excited to show you how to create your own at-home facial that  has the "just came from the spa" effects! Keep reading for steps to create this awesome alternative to expensive spas!!

Part 1: Steam Your Face! 

Boil water on a stove. Add the hot water to a bowl filled with your tea leaves. The tea leaves are infused with a nice aroma that calms your nerves! The towel is used to trap the steam in. Drape the towel over your head and the bowl to mimic the effect of a steam room or expensive steam machine! Stay under for 10 minutes, constantly taking breathes outside the towel. Hot steam opens up your pores and allows your face to have a deeper cleanse. Wash your face with any gentle cleanser and face brush after the steaming step has been completed. With the pores opened, the cleanser will clean all of the dirt buildup.

Part 2: Mud Mask!

Store Bought Options:
For this step I used a store bought mask. Here are some suggestions that I think are awesome! If you keep scrolling, a homemade mud mask recipe is down below too!

Mud Masks are amazing masks that soak up all the bad oils and dirt from your skin! Because your pores were opened with the steam, the mud mask is able to extract everything from your face. I love mud masks because not only do they clean my face, but they leave it brightened and soft! The Deep Down Detox Ultra-Cleansing Mud Mask is a must! Ranging at $5.99, this mask is a total steal. It softens skin while extracting all the toxins from your face! This can be bought at Ulta a s well as Target. Borghese's Fango is my all time favorite! I have the tube form for the sake of cleanliness, but if you are looking to use this on your body, the large size in the jar is great. This mask is the most firming mask I have ever used! The smell is very earthy/fresh, which I love. The H2O mask I have unfortunately never tried but from reading five-star reviews, I can guarantee that this mask will be a hit for anyone! I hope these mask suggestions guided you into purchasing what you think best fits your skin! Keep reading for a homemade mask if you have the products lying around!

Make Your Own:

This alternative to a store bought mud mask is an awesome recipe which is great if you are into DIY face mask projects!

1 tablespoon of green clay
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon of milk
1 teaspoon of honey

Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl. After combining, apply to face. Leave on for 15-20 minutes. Your face should be left with luminous healthy glow! Rinse off and wash with gentle cleanser.

After using either your homemade of store bought mud mask rinse off and use a cleanser on your face again! After this step you are finished. Cleanse your face one more time! MAKE SURE to rinse everything at the end with COLD WATER! This will close your pores back up so no dirt and toxic air can ruin all of your hard work! Apply a gel based moisturizer so your pores aren't clogged but you are retaining the moisture! I really hope this was helpful! PLEASE follow and comment on what you think! Any other mask recipes? Thanks for reading xo!
