Your Guide to the Ultimate At-Home Facial

While we are all stuck indoors, now is the perfect time to treat yourself to an at-home facial. Our experts at Skin Republic HQ have put together this simple 5 step at-home facial routine which feels almost as good as the real thing. So select your ultimate chillout playlist, put on your fluffiest robe, light that fancy scented candle and get ready for glowy, bouncy skin.

When starting any facial this should be the first step. It’s important to remove all traces of makeup so your skin can absorb ingredients more efficiently. If you’re skipping on makeup at the moment you should still cleanse to remove any oil build up from the day.

First cleanse with an oil-based makeup remover followed by a cream (if your skin is dry) or a foam-based cleanser (if your skin is on the oily side). Focus on the areas where you experience breakouts and get into those nooks and crannies. Make sure you get a nice lather going and rinse off well.

Exfoliation, the tight rope of skin care. Too much and your skin can be left sore and inflamed, too little and your skin feels congested and dry. It’s best to exfoliate a maximum of twice per week and make sure you choose the right exfoliator for your skin. A fruit acid peel, gently sloughs off dead skin cells without irritating sensitive skin types. If you prefer a more serious exfoliation try the Skin Republic Charcoal Peel-Off Face Mask. This mask dries and becomes tight removing dirt, oil and dead skin cells as it is peeled off.

Many dry skin sufferers avoid exfoliants as they feel it will make their skin drier. This isn’t true! Skipping on exfoliating can actually make your skin drier. The dead, dry skin cells clog the upper layers of the skin preventing ingredients from penetrating and hydrating. Exfoliation is also great for removing those rough, dry patches.
