Unwind with a face mask. Whether you're planning for a Friday night in with friends or trying to unwind after a stressful day, getting a facial is a great way to relax and pamper yourself. Unfortunately, there's not always enough time to go to a spa and it can be expensive. With just a bit of preparation and a well-curated playlist of soothing ocean sounds, you can enjoy some of the luxuries of a visit to the spa with your own at-home facial. Of course, a professional will likely know what's best for your skin type and there are certainly benefits of going into a spa, but at-home facials can have some big benefits too.

We don't always have the budget to splash out on a real spa facial, but when our skin is in need of a pick-me-up and we could do with the downtime to get really chilled out, a facial at home might be just the thing. Granted, having someone else cleanse, tone and massage your face for an hour isn't quite like a facial at home - you won't get that unless you're blessed enough to live with a facialist. But you can achieve relaxation and dewy, glowing skin with a little planning Creating a zen space before you start is part of the facial at home experience. Indulge all five senses in the same way they would be in a real spa.
I like to soak my eye makeup off with a micellar water drenched cotton round, but you can also do this with olive, almond, or jojoba oil. In short, double cleansing is using an oil-based cleanser followed by a water-based cleanser, so you can effectively remove various types of grime from your skin. Starting at your chest and working up your neck and jawline with long strokes, gently push the muscles of your face in upward motions while also working your cleanser in circular motions, to encourage an increase of blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.
