go back to beauty school!What are the steps in giving a professional facial?
STEP 1: Tie back your hair and keep it off your face. STEP 2: Place a warm, wet towel on your face and keep it there for a few minutes. STEP 3: Remove the towel and wash your face using cleanser that's suitable to your skin type. STEP 4: Fill a pot with water. Add herbs suitable to your skin type or a few drops of essential oil. For example, chamomile, fennel seeds and roses are good for dry skin, and rosemary, lavender and peppermint can help oily skin. STEP 5: Put the pot on the stove and bring the water to a boil. Remove the pot from the heat. STEP 6: Drape the towel over your head and hold your face over the steam. Steam for 5 or 10 minutes, or whatever is comfortable. STEP 7: Put on a face mask. If using a clay-based mask, avoid the eye area. STEP 8: Lie down and relax as the mask dries. Cucumber slices over the eyes are cooling. STEP 9: Rinse your face, making sure to get all traces of the mask off. STEP 10: Conclude your facial with toner, then moisturizer. Tips %26amp; Warnings
You can purchase a mask or make your own at home. Honey and egg whites are very good and effective standbys. For dry skin, try using a mashed banana or avocado.
The herbs that work for you will depend on your specific skin qualities. Experiment with a variety of herbs until you find the ones that work best.
Avoid toners containing alcohol. They can be drying, even for oily skin.
Well ... I could tell ya, but since I'm a professional, I'd have to charge you!
