Use a gentle exfoliator to remove dead skin cells and reveal fresh, glowing skin. Be gentle when applying the exfoliator to avoid irritating your skin.
Steam your face for a few minutes to open your pores and prepare your skin for further treatment. You can do this by boiling water in a pot. let it cool for a few minutes then hold your face over the steam (about 10 inches from the water) with a towel covering your head for about 5 minutes.
Apply a face mask that's appropriate for your skin type. Look for ingredients that target your specific skin concerns, such as clay masks for oily skin or hydrating masks for dry skin.
After you've removed your face mask, use a toner to balance your skin's ph and remove any remaining impurities.
Finish your at-home treatment with a serum and moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and nourished. Look for a moisturizer that's appropriate for your skin type and apply it in a circular motion, focusing on areas that tend to be drier.
