How to Give Yourself a Facial

Did you know face lifts in America can cost between $7,000 to $25,000, depending on the surgeon and facility? Save some money by giving yourself a facial. You don't need a trip to the spa to treat yourself to a facial. All you need is a half an hour and some key items to emerge with a clean, fresh, and relaxed face.

  • Steps
    Tie back your hair and keep it off your face.

    Place a warm, wet towel on your face and keep it there for a few minutes.

    Remove the towel and wash your face using cleanser that's suitable to your skin type.

    Fill a pot with water. Add herbs suitable to your skin type or a few drops of essential oil. For example, chamomile, fennel seeds and roses are good for dry skin, and rosemary, lavender and peppermint can help oily skin.

    Put the pot on the stove and bring the water to a boil. Remove the pot from the heat.

    Drape the towel over your head and hold your face over the steam. Steam for 5 or 10 minutes, or whatever is comfortable.

    Put on a face mask. If using a clay-based mask, avoid the eye area.

    Lie down and relax as the mask dries. Cucumber slices over the eyes are cooling.

    Rinse your face, making sure to get all traces of the mask off.
    Conclude your facial with toner, then moisturizer.

How to Choose the Right Eye Makeup

Great Day! Hope all is well. I know at times it can be very difficult to find the right eye shadow shades for your eye color. With so many colors to choose from, it can be very difficult. You don't want your eyes to look scary or wear the wrong colors. Especially wearing a dark coat of black or brown eye liner. Here you will find out which eye shadow shades will work best for your eye color.

Blue Eyes: Brown and rose shades. Warm shades contrast the coolness, making them pop out.

Brown Eyes: Green and gold shades. These two shades will pick up the colored flecks found in brown eyes. Bet you never knew that huh! Choose a slightly shimmery texture to make them pop out even more.

Green Eyes: Lavender and mocha shades. Purple shades contrast the color, making them look dramatic. Try softer shades of mocha.

Hazel Eyes: Deep green and pale yellow shades. Choose a shade that matches different flecks in your eyes.
