You deserve to take a break within the comfort of your own home. Lucky for you, creating an at-home facial night has never been easier. Whether you want to take some time to treat yourself alone or make it a family night, we are here to help you. Stop by our Health and Beauty section to pick up the essentials, light a few candles and start relaxing tonight.

 

Begin your facial by setting up the perfect ambiance. Turn on your favorite playlist or a relaxing melody, dim the lights and spark a few candles. Slip into your robe or a large towel and pull your hair away from your face. Start your facial process by cleaning your face using the steps below.

Remove any makeup on your face, including eye makeup. We want to begin our facial process with a clean face. Did you know that sleeping overnight in makeup can clog your pores? Also, sleeping overnight in eye makeup can cause problems for your eyes, including redness, irritation and infection. Publix Facial Wipes are designed to deep clean and moisturize skin while removing your makeup. Publix Eye Makeup Remover is formulated to remove eye makeup without leaving behind an oily residue.

Cleanse your skin after removing your makeup. Our Publix Gentle Clean Cleanser is designed to soothe and soften skin as it cleanses and helps your skin retain moisture. If you have acne-prone skin, an oil free cleanser, such as the Publix Oil Free Acne Wash contains salicylic acid to help prevent breakouts while cleansing skin.

Exfoliate: Exfoliates are designed to remove the dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. As we age, our cell regeneration level slows down, making the process of shedding cells slower. The Publix Apricot Scrub is designed to remove oil, dirt and dead cells, all of which cause build up and can lead to acne.

Mask Face masks are essential to a facial night! While they are fun to make and relaxing to place on your face, face masks also have some great benefits for your skin. Face masks are great for deep cleaning. We have listed a few easy recipes for face masks below that include two common household products. If you’re making one of these recipes at home, be prepared to make a small mess, but it will be worth it in the end! Keep in mind that, if your skin feels uncomfortable at any point, you should rinse the mask off and apply a soothing ingredient, like aloe vera. These masks are meant to be fun and relaxing, but don’t use them if you have irritated or broken skin, and always consult with your physician if you have specific skin concerns.

Brown sugar and coconut oil mask

This mask is great for exfoliating and moisturizing for the skin. Since this mask is also exfoliating, you will not need to exfoliate your face before using this mask. For this face mask, you’ll need:

Ingredients:Facial_Mask_1

  1. Combine brown sugar and coconut oil, mix well
  2. Massage the mixture onto your face with small circular motions, carefully avoiding the eyes
  3. Leave the mixture on your skin 10-15 minutes
  4. Rinse off with lukewarm water and a clean wash cloth
  5. Pat skin dry with a clean dry wash cloth

Avocado and oatmeal mask

This mask is great if you have dry skin, as avocado is a good moisturizer. For this mask you’ll need:

Ingredients:Facial_Mask_2

  1. Cook the oatmeal as instructed on the package; allow it to cool
  2. Mash your avocado with a fork
  3. Mix the two ingredients together
  4. Apply to your skin
  5. Leave this mixture on your skin for 10 – 15 minutes
  6. Wash off with lukewarm water
  7. Pat skin dry with a clean dry wash cloth

Tone– Toners are great for oily skin. They also help shrink the size of pores and help tighten the skin after cleaning has taken place. If you don’t have a toner at home, you might have a bottle of witch hazel. You want to make sure your witch hazel is alcohol free; if it’s not, it may dry your skin. As a toner, witch hazel is great for removing excess oil on the skin and the product has anti-irritant properties.

Moisturize– The final step should be to lock in your facial with a face moisturizer. Moisturizers are important because they help to prevent dryness. If you don’t have a moisturizer at home, try this easy recipe to DIY one for yourself.

Ingredients:

Mix the products together and smooth into your face, avoiding the eye area.
