A facial while staying in the comfort of your own home, as long or short as you like, wearing whatever you want and exactly the way you like it. Pair this with your favourite Green Angel skincare products, and it’s almost better than the spa! Follow our steps below for your at home facial routine
The most important step here. Relax. Have a long shower, light some candles, put on clean pyjamas or clothes, whatever makes you comfortable and means that you can have a great at-home-facial
- Double Cleanse
Cleansing the skin helps to melt away makeup and clean the skin. Cleansing a second time then helps to clean the skin itself, helping to remove sweat and dirt that may have collected in the pores or even any makeup that was missed in the first cleanse.
Our cleansing lotion is a milky formula and suitable for all skin types. It is full of antioxidants, vitamin A and vitamin C which are great for the skin. It is also an effective makeup remover and can be used for both of your cleanses.
Cleansing the skin has now made it more supple and has also helped to remove any dirt from the skin. Exfoliating now helps to remove any dead skin cells from the skin, as well as helping to reduce clogged pores. Remember, don’t exfoliate for too long or too hard as this can damage the skin. Use small circular motions instead.
Our gentle and hydrating exfoliator contains micronised olive stones which will help to effectively rid the skin of dead skin cells, unclog pores and can brighten complexion. The apricot oils help to moisturise the skin as you exfoliate which can help reduce dry patches.
Toning will help to restore the skin’s natural pH after cleansing and exfoliating. It also helps to prep the skin for the next products that you layer on top.
Green Angel Seaweed toner is a refreshing spritz to prep and hydrate the skin before moisturisers. This toner can be used throughout the day or over makeup when you need a quick refresh, even after your entire skincare routine or facial!
If you use a serum in your skincare routine now is the time to use it. A serum is a concentration of the same ingredients that you may find in your skincare products and can be incredibly good for your skin, achieving different results with different ingredients, just as with other products.
- Eye gel
Pat, don’t rub! The cardinal rule of eye care is to not drag or pull the delicate undereye area. Apply a small amount of eye cream or gel using your ring fingers and gently tap from the inner corner outwards until the product has been patted in fully.
Our eye gel contains soothing aloe vera which helps to cool and reduce puffiness of the eye area. For extra soothing pop this in the fridge for a while before using for an extra cool sensation.
The last step of our routine is moisturiser but you can follow this up with an oil if you are using a jade roller or a gua-sha afterwards for some facial massage and stimulation. Work your moisturiser into the skin in circular motions, perhaps incorporating some massage and upward strokes into this also.
Collagen cream, night cream, daily cream, any of our creams are suitable for this step and it’s completely up to you. Collagen cream and night cream are thicker and richer cream whereas the daily cream is a lighter formula.
