How to give yourself a natural home facial
Before you begin your spa treatment, take the proper steps to prepare your environment so that you can get the best results.
- Transform the area where you will be performing the facial into a calming one by lighting candles or putting on soothing music.
- Turn off your phone and stop other interruptions so you can really enjoy your facial.
- Make sure to carefully remove all makeup and surface toxins from your skin prior to your treatment. You can use Jojoba oil or Hazelnut oil to naturally remove makeup.
