Slay the Season with an At-Home Facial

Slay the Season with an At-Home Facial

As the fun and festivities of the holiday season is upon us, we can be inundated with obligations and lack of time for ourselves. Indulge in your own home spa experience.

The holidays are a magical time to spend with friends, family, and community. Make sure to book in some me-time to recharge.

Pampering all the Way
To get started on your at-home facial, set the stage for pampering. Keep in mind that you’ll be masking for 15 minutes, and this can take place on the couch, lying in bed, or lathering up in the tub. You’ll need water, so you’ll want access to a sink (and a mirror). Put together what helps you relax. This can be anything from soothing music, soft lighting or your favorite candles, hot tea, or sparkling mineral water. Next, gather everything you’ll need for your facial. You’ll need skincare products including a cleanser, mask, and moisturizer. Be sure to pull back your hair with a headband or hair tie and get comfy in sweats or pjs. This is your time, and you can make it as luxurious or as casual as you want. Don’t forget to grab a few different sizes of towels including washcloths, hand towels, and even a large towel if needed.

Dashing through the Suds
Let’s start with a bare face. Pull back your hair and remove any eye makeup, mascara, and face makeup. Pour a small amount of facial cleanser in your palm and add water, creating a light foam. Gently massage onto dampened face using circular motions and onto neck with long, upward strokes. Allow yourself to relax and enjoy the experience. Splash away with warm water to remove all traces of cleanser and impurities. Use a soft washcloth moistened with warm water to give your face a steam and natural exfoliation. Allow the warm cloth to set on your face for a minute, and gently slough away any dead skin. You’ll want to do a double cleanse, so repeat the cleansing process and rinse, skipping the warm washcloth the second time. Blot skin dry with a hand towel, leaving it slightly damp.

Calming & Soothing Cleanser for Sensitive Skin
Gently cleanses and purifies skin of impurities, leaving skin hydrated, soothed, and refreshed.

Merry Face Massage
Replenish your skin with hydration while improving the appearance of your skin’s tone, texture, and radiance. Add several drops of our anti-aging serum into the palm of your hand, and with your fingertips, gently massage the essence into your face and neck. Allow to fully absorb. Do not rinse off. 

Healer Turnover Ampoule
Deeply hydrating, soothing, and boosts collagen production, improving the appearance of skin tone and texture.

Masking Skin So Bright
Brighten up your complexion with a facial mask of your choice. Our soothing sheet mask calms skin that has been damaged by environmental factors (including cold weather), harsh treatments, or peels. It also helps improve skin tone and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Our cream mask helps to renew the look of skin’s tone and texture, and helps reduce the appearance of sun damage, acne scars, and burn marks. Apply either a cream or sheet mask and lay back and relax for 15 minutes or more!

Scar Treatment Mask
Improves the overall appearance of acne scars, skin texture and tone, for a healthier-looking complexion. 
*Options, leave on 15 minutes or more and remove, or leave on overnight for optimal benefits (for overnight, you can skip the moisturizer step)

Healing Mask
Ultra-microfiber sheet delivers nurturing and soothing actives that calm and soothe skin compromised by treatments, while reducing the look of fine lines & wrinkles.
*Leave on 15 – 20 minutes, remove sheet mask and gently massage remaining essence into skin

Eyes All Aglow
Keep that twinkle in your eye with some extra attention. Stress, seasonal allergies, and overindulgence can result in puffiness or dark undereye circles. Nurture your eye area by lightly tapping a soothing eye cream into the sensitive area. Our eye cream will help to brighten, hydrate, and diminish fine lines for a more youthful look.

Active Night Repair Eye Cream
Brightens, hydrates, and improves visible signs of aging around the eyes, reducing the look of puffiness and dark circles.

Hydration for the Holidays
Indulge your skin by slathering on the moisture. This will help seal in all the nutrients you just applied, as well as help protect your skin’s natural moisture barrier. Our anti-aging moisturizers are infused with ultra-hydrating hyaluronic acid to help boost moisture levels and revitalize the complexion. Be sure to use sun protection if you’re doing your facial in the morning or daytime.

Healer Nutritive Cream
Nourishes and hydrates skin, revitalizing dry damaged skin for a youthful look.

Face & Neck Firming Cream
Instantly improves the appearance of skin firmness on the face, neck, and décolletage for a sculpted, youthful look.

Enjoy your holiday facial, your skin will be glowing all the way!
