Getting a great facial doesn’t mean you have to spend money at a fancy spa. Put your best face forward right at home in these seven simple steps from our beauty expert at Kiss The Chaos!

1. Cleanse

Start by removing your makeup and prepping the skin to receive all of the pampering coming its way. Try Triple Oxygen Foaming Cleanser by Bliss. I love the creamy, foamy consistency and the nice citrus smell. It’s also gentle on your eyes.

2. Steam

This is probably the most important step. If you don’t have a budget to purchase one of the fancy salon steamers, try boiling a pot of water on the stove and simply putting your face over it. You can also makes some nice steamy towels in a cheap crockpot. After you finish cleansing, take the towels and place them over your face. Make sure to press the  towels into your skin. Adding some essential oil can help calm and soothe you.

3. Exfoliate

Try a Clarisonic Mia Brush, or a sugar scrub. Whatever you do, don’t use both in the same session because you could cause some damage. The sonic brush makes this process easy, but the scrub leaves your face smelling good and feeling smooth.

4. Hydrate

Your face needs to rehydrate. Apply a face masque for at least 10-15 min. A good one is Boscia Blue Calming Masque. It is is the perfect consistency to peel off when it’s done. It will definitely give your face that much needed boost. Try another steamed towel afterward.
