How to Give Yourself a Deep Cleansing Facial at Home – Wishtrend

1. Start with cleansing oil
2. Steam and get your pores readyBefore cleansing your skin, wash your face with warm water. If you can afford to go the extra mile to get close to baby-smooth skin, open your pores using steam. First, boil some water and place your face over the steaming water for no longer than 10 minutes. Close your eyes and breathe in slowly with a towel over your head so that it creates a tent that can capture the hot moisture. While cleansing, focus on areas where you have excessive sebum and make sure that you don’t miss crevice areas on the face like around the lips, the nostrils and side foreheads.
3. Pore cleansing with sugar scrubExfoliation is an important step that you cannot leave out from deep cleansing. By getting rid of the dead skin cells from your skin, exfoliating works as a preventive measure for acne. After exfoliation, you will notice that your skin is left feeling soft and even-toned. However, do not get too addicted to this feeling and add exfoliation to your daily skin care regimen -- once or twice a week is enough to make your skin look younger and refreshed. Black sugar has been one of the most loved skincare ingredients and K-beauty has also undergone a black sugar craze. Black sugar, packed with vitamins and minerals, has also swept the feet of even the pickiest K-beauty fans with its amazing benefits. Black sugar scrub is an effective exfoliator that can double as a moisturizer. The sugar grains will effectively remove dead skin cells and the vitamin B in black sugar creates a protective barrier around your skin. If you have sensitive or dry skin, adding one pump of cleansing oil to the black sugar scrub will make the exfoliation process smoother and gentler.
4. Replace your normal cleansing foam with a charcoal soapThere is also an easy trick you can pull out your sleeve on your busy days when you just can’t make the time to do all that. Simply switching from a normal facial cleanser to charcoal soap could cleanse your deep pores. Activated charcoal is known to detox, clear, and purify your skin. Charcoal soap is especially beneficial for acne-prone, oily skin because charcoal effectively absorbs the excess oil and sebum from your skin and reduces the size of your pores. Compared to foam cleansers, charcoal soap reaches deeper into your skin and frees up clogged pores whereas a foaming wash may focus only on washing the makeup and impurities from the surface of your skin.
