Are you missing your usual facials during lockdown? Why not give it a go at home?

This is the perfect opportunity to learn how to combat problem areas and understand your skin. Make time for self-care during the next few weeks and you’ll soon see the benefits!

Vanessa Charest, an Aesthetic Nurse from the London Real Skin Clinic, has shared her top facial tips for maximum results.

“Make sure you have no other plans for the next hour,” she says. “Facial oils are really popular and beneficial for skin. Try a rose quartz facial roller and treat yourself to a facial massage. If massaging with your hands, remember to work in a circular motion, moving from the chin up to the forehead, covering all areas of the face. Massaging skin will activate blood circulation and quickly improve skin tone and texture.”

Vanessa suggests making a face mask, insisting it’s easy to do and only requires a few ingredients.

“Combine egg whites, which are packed with protein and help repair the skin, with honey, a natural antibacterial ingredient. Apply directly onto skin and leave for 15-20 mins,” she continues. “After rinsing the mask off, splash your face with cold water to tighten pores and boost skin for a glowing complexion.”

While waiting for the mask to work its magic, treat yourself to some quiet time away from your phone and other distractions. Sip a cup of herbal tea or take a bath to help you unwind.

If age spots and wrinkles are an issue, Lisa Borg, expert nutritionist at Pulse Light Clinic, recommends trying the Skin Booster face mask.

"Mix 1 x tablespoon of avocado, 1 x tablespoon of honey and 6 drops of lavender essential oil,” she suggests. “Apply to clean skin, relax for 15 minutes and then wipe off with a tissue. Rinse your skin with lukewarm water and pat dry."

Linda suggests incorporating a vitamin C-based serum into your evening skincare regime, and it’s straightforward to make if you don’t have one. Combine Aloe Vera gel, vitamin C powder and essential oil such as lavender, lemon, or tea tree.

“Avoid using before sun exposure,” she adds.

If your skin is looking dull and dry, regular exfoliation is a must. Even sensitive complexions can benefit and there’s something for every skin type.

Consider investing in a multi-tasking mitt, ideally an eco-friendly one which can be re-used. The new Cleanzi Mitt gently removes make-up, offers a deep clean when used with your usual cleanser, and eliminates pesky blackheads.

“Our complexions tend to appear dull in colder months, especially when people aren’t going outside as much during lockdown,” Sam Mian, from Skin by Sam, said. “Wearing face masks restricts the oxygen flow to our faces which can clog the pores around our mouths and leads to skin irritation/spots.

“The exfoliating blue side of the Cleanzi Mitt removes dead skin cells in a few circular motions to remove any build-up and rejuvenate skin effectively.’’

Try soaking the mitt in cold water, wring out and press to your face for an invigorating boost!
