This infographic from Visual.ly goes through the basic steps for doing a facial at home, and below the graphic we’ve got some more detailed suggestions – DIY tips and product recommendations – for each step.
Step 1: Washing Your Face
Skip the toxic ingredients that come with most conventional face soaps and opt for an organic facial cleanser, like this one from Acure Organics.
Step 2: Exfoliation
To exfoliate, you just need a good facial scrub. Our sister site, Crafting a Green World, has a great roundup of DIY facial scrubs for all different skin types.
Step 3: Steaming
The steaming step is pretty straightforward. If you want to make this even more fancy, try adding a few drops of a soothing essential oil, like lavender or sage, to the water. Steaming is even better with a little aromatherapy boost!
Step 4: Face Mask
Store-bought face masks can be pretty pricey. Instead of spending big bucks at the big box store, check out these face mask options made from grocery store finds!
