Winter Skin Blues? Try an At Home Facial
Just before new years, I noticed my skin had lost some if it’s luster. Maybe it was because of the cold, dry air where I was vacationing…who knows…but if the chilly winter wind has your skin looking a bit dull, I have the solution for you (and it doesn’t even cost that much!)
I concocted my own at home facial! It was a 5 step process. You can use the products you already have on hand or even get creative and make some of your own recipes. I used a product line from Blissoma, an awesome company I just discovered through one of my favorite eco-beauty blogs, ecochick.com. I jumped on the chance to try the starter kit (4 full sized products) for only $25! UPDATE: This deal is no longer being offered but visit iriestar.com for to sign up for future promotions!

Here are the easy steps to your skin rejuvenating at home facial:
Step 1: Cleanse. Wet face and cleanse using a gentle cleanser. I used Blissoma’s Mild Rice Cleanser. Pat dry.
Step 2: Exfoliate. Use face scrub to remove dead skin cells. Since I didn’t have any scrub around, I created my own. Take about 2 tablespoons of olive oil and combine with 2 tbsp. of sugar. You can play around with the amounts. Gently apply to face and rinse. By now your skin will already be incredibly soft!
Step 3: Clarify. Apply a clay mask to skin, being careful to apply it evenly. Blissoma’s Clay Renewal Treatment mask did an excellent job for me. Let dry and remove with a warm wet cloth.
Step 4: Tone. Blissoma’s set came with this great toner spray (Intense Hydration Tonique) which hydrated my skin. If you don’t have a product like this, you can skip this step or mist face with some purified water. Let dry.
Step 5: Moisturize. Apply moisturizer (it was night so I used Blissoma’s Evening Facial Creme.) The set also came with a Morning Facial Moisture. I love the fact that it had different formulations for day and night. Your skin needs different treatment at different times of the day.
Step 6: Enjoy smoother, softer, and healthier skin!
This isn’t something you will do everyday but once in a while it is nice to pamper yourself! After I gave myself this facial, my skin was new year ready. Do you have any other tips for an at home facial? Please share!
