Spa’s and beauty clinic is emerging rapidly nowadays. That said, the treatments and products available at such beauty centers are mostly expensive, claiming that they’re using state of the art equipment and the treatments are unique to the establishments. Does getting the said treatment really worth it then for your skin?
Thanks to the continuous development of technology (at an exponential rate, I might add), a variety of products, treatments, and tools are available in achieving the ‘Holy Grail’in beauty, that maintains the youthfulness of the skin, no matter the current age. Why do you ask? Because the treatments work using a higher concentration of key ingredients and they work intensively to penetrate deeper into the skin to achieve the outcome as intended.
And yes, the benefit also comes at a hefty price, limiting such treatments to anyone that has enough dough to spend, and for average people like us, that can be impossible. And when you can create one at home, there’s no need to bother with such treatments, especially with what you’re using still works!
The key is consistency.
And thank goodness, creating a spa experience that you can do at home is not expensive and even with investing a few items to create a beauty haven on your own won’t break the bank either. Start by making you on analysis about your skin types, concerns, and allergies if any, and work out the products from there and rest assured, there’s a product for each skin concerns that you have.
For example, if you oily skin types with enlarged pores (due to overproduction of sebum for so long) and uneven skin tone, you might want to include mild chemical peel (lactic acid is a good choice) and follow it up with a hydrating toner (the ones that are free from alcohol), a vitamin C serum, and a nourishing sleeping mask, applied right before bedtime.
Set the mood with good tunes and soak yourself in a warm bath and massage the skin with a mixture of Epsom salts with drops of orange essential oil to energize the skin. Epsom salts are beneficial as they exfoliate the skin and improving lymphatic drainage to purge out toxins from the body. A good soak around 15 minutes is more than enough for you to wake up from within.
Continue on with the face routine as mentioned, according to your skin types. This part is particularly crucial as you can’t just simply use any products for your skin, as they may aggravate any skin issues you may have, such as psoriasis and rosacea. For this part, you can use an affordable face steamer (used before cleansing) to soften the skin and open up the pores for a deep cleaning treatment. This step is regularly done in facials at spas so it’s safe to say this tool works.
End the whole routine by drying out the skin with a towel, and massage a face and body oil (even olive oil is an excellent choice) to improve circulation from head to toe.
