How to give yourself a mini facial!

Hi Everybody!
Every couple of weeks, set aside a bit of time ti give yourself a relaxing salon-style facial at home. It won't cost anything and will help give your skin a deep down clean and make it super soft! So lets get started:

1. Smooth your skin with cleansing cream, gentle soap or facial wash. Leave on for one or two minutesto give it some time to dissolve grime and make-up, then smooth away with a clean damp flannel.

2. Massage a blob of facial scrub or some porriage oats over your skin to whisk away dead surface skin cells abd clear blocked pores. Rinse away with warm water.

3. Fill a bowl with a kettleful of freshly boiled water. Then lean over the bowl capturing the steam by placing a towel over your head (you might look a fool but this will work wonders). Stay there for five minutes to allow the steam to warm up and soften your skin. Sensitive skins should skip this step.

4. Spalsh your face with warm water and pat dry.

5. Smooth over a home made fruit face pack:
Oily Skins: Crush six strawberries with a fork, smooth onto your face for three minutes.
Normal/dry skin: Crush a peeled banana with a fork, smooth onto your face and leave for 5 minutes.

6. Remove the mask with a clean tissuethen rinse your face with warm water.

7. Finish with a splash of cool water to freshen your skin. Pat dry with a towen.

8. Dot your skin with moisturiser and massage in to encourage a bright complexion.

And thats it! Hope you liked this post!!
