Me Time: Facials at Home

Your busy schedules can make it extremely difficult to allow you time to yourself. All of us need some “me time” in order to be able to function efficiently and normally. Having some “me time” gives us a chance of relaxing our mind and bodies and rejuvenating ourselves. Luckily, you don’t need to do anything concrete to spend some “me time” with yourself. It could be anything – something as simple as jogging or listening to music or something as amazing as that luxurious at-home facial. After all, what could be a better way of rejuvenating your body than treating your stressed skin and aching body. OROGOLD reviews some of the essentials that you must have in order to get that perfect at-home facial.


A proper wash

Make sure that you always start your at-home facial with a proper wash. Freshly cleansed skin is always a better option when it comes to facials as it allows your skin to absorb ingredients more easily. But, make sure that you use a gentle cleanser and follow it with a gentle scrub to get rid of those dead skin cells.

Many women get into trouble because they leave the mask on for too long, choose the wrong mask for their skin or end up using too much of the product. Understanding what mask to choose can be particularly tricky for your first few facials. Ideally, you would want to look for a mask that is targeted to your particular skin type and skin issues. There are a number of masks that suit all sorts of skin as well. Alternatively, you could create your very own mask using items from your refrigerators and kitchen cabinets. If you’re looking for an after facial toner, an apple cider vinegar can do wonders for your skin. A combination of 1tbsp of honey, oatmeal and plain yogurt can also do wonders for your skin.

Understanding how to treat blemishes

Deep peeling is best left to the experts. But, if you’ve had that sudden breakout or developed a pimple, you can easily tend to it at home. After washing your face with some warm water, apply a blemish cream to the affected area. Some popular types of blemish relievers are tea tree oil, witch hazel, or salicylic acid for natural options or benozol peroxide, usually available via prescription. This should help you control and minimize the breakouts. The main thing is to make sure not to pick at skin; this is the top advise you will hear from dermatologists and estheticians alike.

The perfect facial always needs a perfect moisturizer. You need to ensure that you lock in the moisture and beneficial ingredients after your facial mask as well as boosting the natural protective barrier of your skin. It always helps to stock up on Vitamin C or Retinol based products and Aloe Vera or Resveratrol based moisturizers. Lavender or rose oil are excellent solutions for those suffering from chapped skin and antioxidant rich formulas are a must use for people with tired skin.


Now that you’re aware of what to do to enjoy that perfect at-home facial, schedule some “me time” in your itinerary and make yourself a priority in the comforts of your own home.
