Late Night Beauty Tips – The Facial

Give yourself a facial
A facial cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin to promote clear, well-hydrated skin. Also, it is the most important step to having healthy and beautiful skin, especially during the winter months. Enjoy these suggestions for your next at-home spa day!
Start by washing your face to rid any dirt and oil, and then go over it with a toner like Kiehl’s Tea Tree Oil Toner to boost hydration and balance out your skin. While your skin is still damp from the toner, rub a gentle exfoliator like Ahava Facial Mud Exfoliator onto your T-zone and cheeks (where oil often gushes!). Rinse and pat dry.
Next, (for the true spa effect) use a spatula or paint brush to apply a face mask.(It’s important to include the neck and décolletage too because they’re a dead giveaway of your real age.) For a super moisturizing face mask, try mixing oatmeal with honey and leaving it on your skin for about 20 minutes. If you have oily skin, opt for something more cooling like Greek yogurt mashed together with strawberries. Of course, your favorite face mask in a bottle works too! Remove your mask with warm water and pat dry. Reapply your toner and finish with a moisturizer.
(Don’t forget there are ALWAYS “Do It Yourself” ways in makeup!)
