First and foremost, Marino says you should start your facial at home with a thorough cleanse. If you don't wear makeup, you can probably get away with just one cleanse. However, if you've just exercised or are wearing makeup, you'll probably need a double or even triple cleanse to make sure you remove every last bit of dirt or buildup.
Next, it's time to exfoliate. "I start by exfoliating the lips with a lip scrub to remove dead skin before turning to the face," Marino said. "Look for a gentle chemical peel or peeling formula that works with your skin type."
Essentially, your exfoliation helps clear pore-clogging deposits and gives your complexion a clean slate so that the products you add later (such as masks, serums, and moisturizers) can penetrate more effectively.
Up to the bat, some TLC courtesy of face and eye masks that are tailored to your skin type and skin problems. According to Marino, your mask helps replenish moisture and soothe the skin after peeling, while targeting specific problems depending on the formula you choose. Oh, and don't forget your eyes! Eye masks are a great way to kill multiple birds with one stone. They can help reduce dark circles, puffs, fine lines and wrinkles.
Now it's time to tighten and hydrate. Marino recommends pressing your toner into the skin with cotton pads or toning pads (instead of rubbing!) To moisturize and balance the skin. (You can also use your fingertips or palms when trying to reduce waste.) "A good moisturizing toner is also a carrier system that aids product penetration with your serums and creams," continues Marino.
Hot tip: The combination of a facial massage that stimulates blood circulation and your favorite serums not only feels fantastic, but also supplies oxygen-rich blood to your complexion, which increases your shine, lifting and tone. Not to mention that your treatments can also penetrate deeper into your skin and use your facial enhancement magic more effectively.
As Marino emphasizes, the serum, cream, and / or oil that you choose to treat and moisturize your complexion depends on your skin type and skin needs. Do your research, consult a specialist (if possible), read your labels, or let trustworthy people (like us!) Recommend which ingredient-based formulas you would like to round off your facial treatment with.
"Never forget the eyes and lips. No facial can be complete without treating the area around the eyes and lips," says Marino. "Apply your favorite lip balm and finish it off with a good eye product. I like eye serums because their smaller molecules provide targeted ingredients to the sensitive skin around the eyes." If necessary, fill it up with a high quality eye cream to enclose everything and lock in the essential moisture.
