Doing a Facial at Home

Have you considered giving your skin a tune up? Many of us have skin that is crying out for attention after another cold, dry winter. Snow or no snow, when the temperatures drop the heat goes up at home and at work and our skin reacts. Dryness and cracking. Flaking and peeling noses. Uneven, blotchy skin tone. This simply won’t do!

Dr. Seaver can help make dramatic improvements with MicroLaserPeels, Photo Facials, Skin Tightening, BOTOX, dermal fillers and more. But what can you do to improve your skin right now?

A Do-It-Yourself Facial can go a long way to improve the look and feel of dull, winter skin before your appointment with Dr. Seaver at Laser & Vein Center of North Jersey.

Let’s begin.

Take a bath! While you’re soaking and hydrating in your tub, you can pamper your face too. The rising steam from the tub, (add a couple of drops of aromatherapy oil if you have any handy) softens and prepares you skin for deep cleansing.

Cleanse with your favorite cleanser.

Rinse & follow with an exfoliating scrub. Next, apply your clay mask. You may already have one in your bathroom cabinet. Why a clay mask? Clay helps soften your skin and will draw out oils from your pores and tightens them.

While your clay mask soaks down into your pores, treat your delicate under-eye skin by applying cucumber slices (thinly slice a cucumber and pre-soak the slices in ice water for 5 minutes) or chilled green or black tea bags (steep them briefly in boiling water then chill on ice). Lay back in the tub, breath in the lavender-infused steam, and let the clay soak deeply into your pores while your eye treatment works a little magic reducing puffiness around your eyes. After you rinse off the mask and gently pad dry, your skin is “open” and ready to benefit from the ingredients in your best anti-aging serums and creams.

Don’t forget your lips: apply a richly hydrating lip balm.

Your “Do-It-Yourself Facial” is now complete!
