About Face

Goddess S and I both had the day off so we decided to do an at-home facial for our blog. I’ve never had a professional facial before since I usually do this routine myself. But Goddess S has told me that the at-home is just as good as having someone else do it and the results are the same.

So whether or not you’ve had a professional facial before, save your money, because Goddesses S & H are going to give you the step-by-step to a beautiful, glowing face.

You will need:

An exfoliate
Water
A towel
A bowl
Facial cleanser
A facial mask
Q-tips
(Optional) Cotton balls

Step 1: Fill a coffee pot with water and bring to a boil.

Step 2: Remove all makeup, if any.

Step 3: Exfoliate
Use whatever is good for your skin type. A lot of people I know use the St. Ives Apricot Scrub, But I have a problem with blackheads around my top lip-line which the apricot scrub wasn’t doing anything for. I’ve seen amazing results since I started using Clean & Clear Blackhead Eraser Scrub every day.

Step 4: Pour water into a bowl
With your towel, cover your head over the bowl of hot water so the steam is rising directly in your face for 10 minutes. If it’s too hot you can move your face further away from the bowl. The idea is to get a sweat going.

Step 5: After your 10 minutes are up, now is the time to extract any blackheads your face has since the pores have been steamed open. Use Q-tips to squeeze out the clogged dirt to avoid scarring from fingernails.

Step 6: Cleanse your face. I like to use those disposable Oil of Olay facial cloths that you can just add water to. Pat dry.

Step 7: Put on your facial mask for 10 minutes until it hardens. I’ve been using Clean & Clear Blackhead Eraser Cleansing Mask to supplement the scrub.
Goddess S was using Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser/Mask but as soon as she put it on, her face was burning around her cheekbones so she washed it off immediately and used my Clean & Clear with no problem.
(Optional: Soak a couple of cotton balls in cool water and place them over your eyes. Lay down for the 10 minutes and play some relaxing music. It’s quite the rejuvenating time out!)

Step 8: After your 10 minutes, wash your mask off and pat your face dry.

Step 9: Put on a touch of moisturizer and revel in your clean, soft skin!
