Beauty sharing

So just the other day I was reading through a bunch of my favourite beauty sites and blogs when I came across this very handy tip for blackheads. They're such a pain and nuisance to your skin and the really annoying part is that no matter how clean your skin is you can still have blackheads. This is because blackheads are caused when the oil in blocked pores comes into contact with the air. Having a regular facial is one of the most effective ways of getting rid of and keeping blackheads at bay. Unfortunately not everyone can afford to have regular facials which is why I'm a big fan of at homes masks and spas and facials. Honey face and fancy face are two which I use quite often. I love this at home facial by Miss Lauren Conrad and because it's so brilliant I just had to share it with you. 


You’ll need
gentle facial cleanser
exfoliating scrub
facecloth
face mask (clay-based for oily skin, cream or gel mask for dry skin)
face moisturiser


Method
Using a good cleaner wash your face, neck and ears; making sure to remove all your makeup.
With your fingers gently rub an exfoliating facial scrub (in a circular motion) all over your face. Be extra cautious around your nose and forehead area making sure to exfoliate properly.
Now for a steam using a warm facecloth. Fill the bathroom sink with warm water and soak the facecloth in it. Ring it out and place it over your face, allowing it to rest there for a minute or two. In order to steam your face properly you’ll need to repeat this at least two to three times.
Depending on the type of skin you have (oily, dry or combination) you’ll need to apply the required mask on your face. Only use the recommended amount for the recommended time and then rinse it off.
Last but not least you’ll need to moisturise. Gently apply a good moisturiser all over your face and neck.

There you have it, you’ve now given yourself a facial for a fraction of the price. Have you got any wonderful facials, masks or beauty regimes you’d like to share with me?
