5 Steps for a Home Anti-Aging Facial

Mature skin beauty care secret alert! Regular facials help to keep your skin magnificently young-looking. Follow these steps for a home anti-aging facial to leave your skin feeling pure and renewed. Even if you can't make it to the spa every month, you can take excellent care of your skin at home. Cleanse, exfoliate, steam, mask, hydrate, and repeat.

1. Cleanse
Removing dirt, oil, and bacteria from your skin is the first step of this powerful beauty treatment. You can use your facial cleanser; creamy cleansers are ideal for dry, aging skin. To go all natural with your anti-aging facial, make a homemade cleanser by drizzling virgin olive oil on a tomato slice and then massaging over your skin. Rinse with tepid water.

2. Exfoliate
The next step for creating your own amazing anti-aging facial is to make a scrub with ingredients that will gently remove dead skin cells while also stimulating your skin. Stir a tablespoon of raw sugar crystals into one and one-half tablespoons of plain yogurt. Add three drops of neroli essential oil. Gently massage over your skin, taking your time to slough away dead skin while boosting circulation.

The sugar (don't use refined white sugar) and yogurt supply your skin with exfoliating alpha hydroxy acids. Neroli is a wonderful anti-aging ingredient. It stimulates cell turnover and promotes skin elasticity.

3. Steam
I use the same neroli, four drops, along with two drops of anti-inflammatory lavender essential oil for a home facial steam. Fill a glass bowl with a quart of freshly boiled distilled water. Add the essential oils. Rub a tiny amount of grapeseed oil over your skin and then hold your face over the steam for five minutes. Pat dry.

4. Mask
For aging skin, hydrating masks are the best choice. Skin naturally becomes drier and thinner as the body ages. Antioxidants are also key, they help to neutralize those destructive free radicals. Green tea is a great source of free radical fighting compounds. To make your homemade mask, stir one teaspoon of matcha powder and one teaspoon of lavender powder into two to three tablespoons of whole fat coconut milk. Stir in a teaspoon of raw honey. Whip all the ingredients together with a fork and spread over your open pores. Slip a couple of thin cucumber slices over your eyes, lie down, and relax for 15 minutes before washing off the mask.

5. Hydrate
That's it! Put on any serums and then your favorite moisturizing cream or massage a dab of softening argan oil into your skin. Make your home facial time about you. Sip a cup of mint tea. Play some soothing meditation music. Make sure you have some relaxing aromatherapy oils wafting through the air. Ah! homemade skin care can be sublime.
