It’s always worth taking some time out to pamper yourself – it is truly good for the soul and can really enhance your wellbeing.
Regular self-care can make you feel happier, more relaxed and has also been proven to help improve your focus and concentration levels.
At NIBU, we love to indulge ourselves by enjoying a rejuvenating spa-quality facial, in the comfort of our own home.
It’s so easy to do – and it will leave you looking and feeling amazing.
Let us share with you our recommended steps for a super relaxing facial which will give you glowing and radiant skin…
- Relax and Create the Right Ambience
Before you begin your facial, it’s worth taking some time to get yourself relaxed, creating a peaceful ambience in your home.
A great way to do this is to start by having a lovely long soak in a warm bath – add some drops of lavender essential oil to the water, light some candles, and play relaxing music. Just let any worries drift away and really start to de-stress and unwind.
- Give Your Skin an Ultimate Cleanse
Now you’re feeling all relaxed, it’s time to begin your facial. The first step is the cleansing stage and it’s important to take your time with this – the more thorough you are, the more effective your facial will be.
To get your skin super clean, use this amazing homemade honey face wash.
This will get your skin completely clean and ready for the next stage of your facial.
- Steam Your Skin for an Even Deeper Cleanse
When you’ve thoroughly cleansed your face, you’re then ready to steam your skin. This will open up your pores, soften your skin and give it an even deeper cleanse. It also increases circulation, boosts blood flow, and promotes collagen production – all of which will help you to achieve radiant, glowing, and firmer skin.
An easy and safe way to steam your skin is to soak a towel in hot water, wring it out until it’s damp, and then place it over your face. All you need to do then is sit back and relax for 5 to 10 minutes.
- Exfoliate to Make Your Skin Beautifully Smooth
The next part of your facial is the exfoliation process – this will get rid of any dead skin cells and start to reveal your beautiful radiant skin.
A great product to use is this natural face scrub – one of the key ingredients is coffee grounds which are perfect for naturally exfoliating your skin.
Exfoliation helps to smooth out the texture of your skin, whilst also boosting circulation and lymphatic drainage. And it will also allow any products you use to sink in deeply, so they can work more effectively.
- Apply a Nourishing Face Mask
Now that your skin is perfectly cleansed, steamed and exfoliated, it’s time to apply a face mask to nourish your skin.
At NIBU, we love this homemade turmeric face mask – it will give your skin an amazing boost – we actually describe turmeric as a miracle powder for the skin.
Take the time to carefully apply the mask – the more care that you put into each stage of your facial, the more effective it will be.
Sit back, relax and let the mask work its magic, before removing it thoroughly.
- Massage and Hydrate Your Skin
It’s now time to moisturise your skin with a hydrating serum. This is often described as the most important step of any skincare routine as the powerful ingredients within your moisturising product can truly transform your skin.
At NIBU, we have a fantastic range of illuminating serums that are ideal to use during a facial. They combine precious botanicals with astaxanthin to encourage cell regeneration, fade hyper-pigmentation, minimise scarring, promote collagen production, whilst reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Your skin will literally drink in the goodness from the serum.
Take a small amount of serum and massage it in – this will boost circulation, rejuvenate your skin and leave it glowing. Take your time as you do this and enjoy the relaxation benefits of this part of your facial.
- Apply Red Light Therapy
At NIBU, we love to finish off our home facials by applying red light to the skin – it’s a great way to end your pamper session, and really ‘seal in’ the products that you’ve used. And what it can actually do is ‘supercharge’ the products that you’ve applied, making them work more effectively.
Red light has been proven to increase skin hydration levels, reduce redness and inflammation, whilst also improving circulation and accelerating skin repair. Further details of the benefits of red light therapy can be found here.
You’ll find a great selection of red light therapy products at Red Light Rising – NIBU customers receive a discount on the products – just add the discount code AGELESS-GLOW when placing an order.
At Red Light Rising, you’ll also find glasses you can wear that block out blue light. If you’ve carried out your facial in the evening, we’d recommend wearing these glasses afterwards as they can help to prepare you for a restful night’s sleep.
If you carry out this facial regularly, it will help you to relax, unwind and leave you with glowing and radiant skin.
Why not take some time out for yourself and create your own spa-like experience in the comfort of your own home?
