Regular face clean-ups are vital even when you follow a daily skincare routine, as a clean-up cleanses your skin from clogged pores and dead skin. It is advisable to get a face clean-up twice a month for naturally radiating and glowing skin. However, going to a salon every time can be tedious and expensive. But the good news is you can do a face clean-up at home while getting the same results.
Today, we will talk about the benefits of a facial clean-up and how to do a salon-like clean-up at home.
Why Is A Face Clean-Up Necessary?
Before learning how to clean your face like a pro, it is vital to understand why face clean-up is necessary. Our skin naturally sheds dead skin cells every day, but they can get clogged into the skin pores. While exfoliating using a scrub can help to get rid of the buildup, we tend to spend less time in the daily skincare routine. Moreover, when we add pollution, dirt, dust, etc., into the mix, taking out time to do proper clean-up becomes absolutely crucial.
There are several benefits of a facial clean-up, such as it cleans up the skin pores, improves the blood circulation in your face, improves your mood and keeps your skin looking younger and healthier.
The Best Way To Do Salon-Like Face Clean-Up At Home
Now that you know the benefits of a facial clean-up and why face clean-up is necessary, let’s talk about the best way to do a salon-like face clean-up at home. Before we get into it, it’s vital to know to only use natural products for the best results and avoid any reaction to chemical products. Here is the step-by-step method to do a pro clean-up at home using natural ingredients and products.
Wash Your Face
The first and most obvious step in the process of face clean-up at home is to clean and wash your face properly. Washing your face will help to open up your skin pores and remove all the dirt, makeup, and pollution, accumulated on your face. Use a mild face wash and cold water to cleanse your face gently.
For a mild face cleanser, you can try Pure Sense’s Energise Grapefruit Revitalising Face Cleansing Gel, which is enriched with natural extracts of grapefruit and vitamin C to naturally cleanse your skin and reduce blemishes and scars.
A wide range of 100% natural personal care products, body care products, hair care products, and skincare products are available at Pure Sense. Natural ingredients are also used in the products to treat your skin well.
Exfoliation is a necessary step in any skincare routine and should be done twice a week, depending on your skin type. Exfoliating helps to remove the dead skin cells, oil, and dirt buildup from the skin pores that can cause acne and oily skin. Because of its several benefits and importance, exfoliating your face is crucial during a face clean-up.
You can make your own facial scrub at home or you can use Pure Sense Natural Papaya Face Scrub, which is enriched with niacinamide and pomegranate. To make your scrub, you can follow these steps.
For Dry Skin:
- Take three spoons of raw oats and mix them with one tablespoon of honey.
- Scrub the mixture on your face in a circular motion for a few minutes and rinse with normal water.
For Oily Skin:
- Mix equal parts of lemon juice with brown sugar to make a smooth scrub.
- Massage the face with the mixture for a few minutes in a circular motion and rinse with lukewarm water.
A toner is a vital part of face clean-up at home as it acts as a medicine to cover any skin breakage that might have occurred after the exfoliation. The toner will soothe your skin after the scrubbing and read your face for the next step in the process. To make a toner at home, you can follow these steps.
For Dry Skin
- Add a few drops of rose water and mix it with aloe gel.
- Apply the mixture to your face and let it stay.
For Oily Skin
- Add equal parts of apple cider vinegar to the water.
- Dab the mixture to your face using cotton pads, avoiding the eyes.
- Leave the mixture as it is.
Use A Face Pack
The next step in the process is to apply a face pack. Face packs help absorb the excess oil on your skin, closing the skin pores that open up during the first two steps and relaxing your face. You can make a face pack at home or use Pure Sense’s Macadamia 3-in-1 Renewing Face Mask, Scrub & Cleanser for a relaxing and soothing experience.
To make a face pack at home, follow these steps.
For Dry Skin
- Mash a small banana, add a half spoonful of honey, a few drops of rosewater and one tablespoon of yoghurt.
- Apply the mask to your face and let it dry for 15 minutes.
- Wet your hands and gently dab the face pack and peel it off.
- Do not wipe or scrub too hard, as it can irritate your skin.
- Wash with cold water to remove the residue.
For Oily Skin
- Take Multani Mitti and mix a few drops of rose water to make a smooth paste.
- Apply the paste to your face and neck evenly.
- Let it dry completely before washing it off using a sponge and cold water.
The last step in doing a face clean-up at home is to moisturise your skin. This step is one of the vital steps in any skincare routine and should not be skipped. Applying a moisturiser will help in trapping the moisture inside and will keep your skin fresh and glowing. You can try Pure Sense Grapefruit Reviving Day Cream to naturally moisturise your skin with the goodness of grapefruit.
A regular face clean-up is vital to maintain the natural glow of your skin and keep it healthy. Face clean-up is different from a facial and equally important, if not more. Remember to only use natural products and ingredients while doing a face clean-up at home for the most effective results.
Frequently Asked Questions on Face Clean-Up At Home (FAQs)
1. What is the difference between facial and clean-up?
Facials and face clean-up are two different things. A facial involves a facial massage, takes up to an hour and a half, can be done over 30-45 days and requires special products. On the other hand, a face clean-up does not include a massage, only takes 30 to 45 minutes, should be done twice a month and requires no special products.
2. How many times should face clean-up be done?
Face clean-ups are different from facials and can be done more frequently. For example, if you have oily skin and go out frequently, you should do a facial clean-up twice a month for excellent results. A face clean-up requires only 30-45 minutes of your time and can be done in the morning before you head off to work.
3. Can I wash my face after clean-up?
You do not need to wash your face after a clean-up, as it automatically cleans your face. However, if you do want to wash your face, you should do it after applying a face mask and finish the clean-up by applying a moisturiser.
