I’ve perfected the best at-home facial that you will love too, thanks to the stay at-home orders in Ontario. It’s also way cheaper than my normal spa routine so that’s a bonus too. I miss going to get facials but this past year I’ve been staying home like everyone else, after doing some research I’ve found a great facial that you can use once every two weeks to stay rejuvenated, looking healthy and feeling relaxed.

First- wash all the makeup off your face and eyes, start fresh. Rinse your face with warm water and your favorite cleanser ( I use St. Ives Green Tea cleanser from Shoppers Drug Mart, it’s cheap, natural and works) , rinse off again and pat dry. Fill your face steamer with water and turn on. If you don’t have a face steamer you can buy one online with Amazon such as the one listed below. Their great for getting you relaxed, opening up the pores, hydrating your face, cleansing your sinuses and more. Find your comfy space, tell Alexa to play spa music on Spotify and enjoy your steam for about 20 minutes. Don’t put your face too close to the steam.
Second. After your done a refreshing steam, scrub your face using your fav face scrub, again I use St. Ives apricot scrub, it’s a great go to and works for my sensitive skin. You can find it also on Amazon. Let sit on your face for 2 – 3 minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
Third, after rinsing pat dry with a warm towel. If you have a face roller like the one below than this is a good time to use it to relax. ( I like to freeze mine for better results) Make sure to roll over your T – zone area and on the corners of your eyes as these are pressure points, when you massage pressure points you release pressure and you feel better, Enjoy!
Lastly use a face mask that suits your skin type I like to use a lighter one like Vichy’s on my sensitive skin. They have a few different types I like their mineral mask, my skin always feels better after. Leave the mask on your face for 10 minutes, get some mediation in, listen to your spa playlist. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Make sure to also use your face cleansers, masks and moisturizers on your neck area.
After your face is dry, use an eye serum that suits your needs. I like OleHenrikson’s vitamin c banana bright eye booster available on Sephora but it is a bit pricey. Use a light layer of your fav facial oil. Let that set in while you turn your facial steamer back on and use for another 10 minutes to rehydrate.
After that use a light layer of moisturizer on your face and neck. I enjoy L’oreal Paris’s selection, their great products that work at affordable prices. But I do also love more than anything OleHenrickson’s vitamin C face creme gel that’s also available on Sephora. Let sit in for a couple minutes and enjoy another moment of relaxation before your at-home spa treatment finishes.
Enjoy your time to yourself as it my be hard to shut reality out while at -home. Provide yourself with a spa like atmosphere so you can enjoy your facial to its fullest!
