Jamie’s Tips For A Spa-Like At-Home Facial
Jamie has tried her fair share of skincare products and has worked with some of the biggest skincare brands. After all this experience, she has finally cracked the code to the perfect at-home facial. Jamie says that you will not miss the spa if you try these steps at home!
1. Double Cleansing
Jamie recommends starting the facial with double cleansing your skin. She first uses an oil-based cleanser and then a cream-based cleanser to remove all the traces of makeup, sweat, and grease.
2. Chemical Exfoliation
After washing the face, Jamie suggests going in with a gentle exfoliator to remove dead skin. She prefers chemical exfoliants over physical scrubs because the former is milder and not abrasive on the skin.
3. Face Mask
No facial is complete without a good face mask. Jamie recommends applying your favorite face mask and relaxing while it works its magic.
4. Gua Sha Massage With Serum
After the mask, it is now time to gently massage a serum on your face. Jamie says that she likes to use a Gua Sha stone or a jade roller for the massage.
To seal the serum in place, Jamie goes in with a layer of a thick and creamy moisturizer. Again, she emphasizes that you need to apply the moisturizer gently and slowly on your skin.
Last but not the least, apply your favorite sunscreen if you are trying this facial in the daytime. Jamie says that she prefers a lightweight sunscreen because there are already multiple products on the skin.
And that’s it! This at-home facial routine is simple but promises spa-like results. Do try it when you are in the mood to pamper your skin at home.
