DIY 4-Step At-Home Facial

DIY 4-Step Facial Which would you rather have – massage or facial? For my birthday my sister gave me a little spa treatment. I could choose either a massage or a facial, and I still can’t make up my mind. Which would you pick?

I’m thinking facial. The pampering feels so good and – bonus! – you glow afterward.

I’d love to get professional facials every month (ok, massages too!) but sadly I only have one birthday a year. To pamper yourself at home, here’s my quick and simple 4-step at-home facial. Even better – no fancy creams or lotions are needed!

diy facial ingredients Note: You should start with a clean face so remove all make-up before continuing.

DIY exfoliate Exfoliate

Baking soda is wonderful for exfoliation. The texture is just right for a gentle scrub. Add a small amount of milk or water to a tablespoon of baking soda to make a paste. Then, using your fingers, massage it all over your face for a couple of minutes, going in a circular motion. A super easy at home dermabrasion!

diy facial - steam Steam

A friend recently told me she puts a hot wash cloth on her face every day. What a quick way to give yourself a steam! I don’t know about you but holding my head over a bowl just isn’t all that appealing. Something about being trapped under the towel makes me feel claustrophobic. For this steam, simply wet a washcloth under hot water, wring out excess water, and apply to face. Repeat one or two times.

at-home facial mask Mask

Now that winter is coming and the heat is on my skin definitely needs extra moisture. I use a hydrating Greek yogurt mask. DIY your own with yogurt and honey and a little lemon juice.

diy facial moisturizer Moisturize

I can’t recommend coconut oil enough. Rub a small amount all over your face and neck. And it’s a great way to end the facial because the smell makes you feel like you are on vacation.

P.S. There are so many great beauty uses for coconut oil – check out the comments here for more ideas!

    Hi,
    I would like to try , Thank you all your wonderful tips. Could anybody tell me where can I buy good turmeric in London?

    I’ve never had a facial…for some reason, the idea of getting one at a spa scares me, but this doesn’t look so scary :) I’m going to track down some coconut oil and give it a go!

    I’ve done the baking soda exfoliation before and it’s absolutely amazing. It doesn’t hurt and it leaves your skin feeling SO soft! I’m an olive oil girl at heart (it’s SO good for your hair and skin), but I keep hearing about coconut oil. The smell would definitely be a plus :-)

      SAME about the being an olive oil girl thing. But this converted me (and helped with my acne- A LOT) and I think I’m now obsessed. Definitely give coconut oil a try!

    This sounds lovely Sis and reminds me I have to schedule our outing asap! You definitely deserve regular facials AND massages :)

    I can’t choose between the two either. I had a similar dilemma a few weeks ago but I chose the massage because I don’t like to put on makeup after a facial and I was going out a few hours after.
    Love the idea of an at-home facial. I really need to get some coconut oil.
