At this time when missing some professional pampering, here are some useful tips for some home pampering until you can get back in to have a facial. If thinking of a microdermabrasion facial this is great for deep exfoliation ,and stimulating new collagen production working progressively through the layers of skin to help with more stubborn concerns.

Gently clean your face with your cleanser to remove surface of grime and makeup. It’s always good to double cleanse both morning and night. Remove with damp cotton pads or warm flannel.
Using an exfoliator will help to get rid of excess dead skin and make the skin look a lot fresher and brighter and will help with the absorption of serums and moisturiser. Apply In sections and move fingers in a circular motion upwards and outwards. Paying particular attention to areas where you feel a build up of dry skin. Remove with damp cotton pads or warm flannel.
Apply a toner
Apply a mask suitable to your skin type with fingers or a brush and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove with damp cotton pads or warm flannel. Apply toner again.
