How To Improve Your Skin Tone And Look Younger In Less Than 60 Minutes

Skin care is something we all try to do every day. We use face creams, toners and all the new brands to try to improve our skin. But there are a few things that you need to know about how your skin works.

For starters, the more cream that you apply to your face, the saggier it gets. The moisturiser liquids are not so bad, its the thick face creams that are the problem.

The skin on our face is actually attached to the muscles underneath. In other parts of the body, the muscles slide underneath the skin, but on the face the muscles actually help to keep the skin tight.

As we use creams, especially thick face cream at night, it tends to make it sag a bit like soaking a sponge with water.

To make our facial skin look better we need to change our beauty routine.

How many of us actually really scrub our faces before we go to bed and in the morning? I know we all take showers or have a bath, but not many people actually give themselves a real facial scrub every day.

This is just for starters. To make our faces spring back up instead of letting gravity pull down the skin, there are a few things we should do.

I recently went and had a facial at a salon. I had never ever tried it before, so it was all knew to me. The point was, apart from feeling totally relaxed for an hour, it opened my eyes to what I was doing wrong.

Of course we can't all afford beauty salon treatment. This was a one of for me, because of the cost, but it did show me a few things that I decided to try at home. And guess what? It really worked!

Home Facial Kit Made From Things Around The House

Most people believe that to have great skin we need to use expensive moisturisers or face creams. Its actually been clinically proved that all the expensive stuff we put on our faces are only as good as the cheaper ones.

Even the adverts on TV these days have added a small get out of trouble line at the bottom of the screen. It states:'This cream will have a temporary effect'. Don't get me wrong, some of the face creams really do make a difference. I have been using the same one for years and its great.

But like an artist painting a picture, you have to have a clean canvas.

Home Face Lift

You don't need to buy expensive home facial kits. Everything you need you can find around the home.

If you do this at least once a week you are going to notice one heck of a difference.

First of all get all of the ingredients together and head for the bathroom. You will need:

  • Salt
  • 2 Flannels
  • Chair
  • Towels
  • Sugar and Spice facial mask
  • Light moisturiser
  • Hot water
  • Cold water
  • Facial steamer or hot water and towel
  • Cucumber
  • Glass or bottle of water

Give that skin a scrub!
Give that skin a scrub!

First of all wipe of all your make up. Then really give your face a good clean. Most people think that soap is a swear word when cleaning your face. This is just a fallacy.

Soap is one of the best things to make your skin tighter. But that's not what its for to start with. Using soap will really give your face a good cleansing. It takes of excess oil that cleansers leave behind.

Turn on the taps in your bath or sink. We need lots of steam. Not just to steam your face but to circulate around the room.

Now, get a flannel and dunk it into hot water. As hot as you can put up with. Add a dollop of salt to the flannel.

Start scrubbing your face in circular motions. Don't drag the skin because it will start to make it wrinkle and you could scrub too hard. We don't want cuts and bruises!

Just keep scrubbing all the way around, including your neck region. You will feel your skin begin to tingle, this is great, but if it starts to smart then you are using to much pressure.

Don't forget the eye area. Just be really gentle. The skin around your eyes will probably be the most caked with makeup. So it's a good idea to use the salt on the area, just take it easy.

Put on that face pack!
Put on that face pack!

After you have finished to salt scrub, rinse the flannel and soak it once again with the hot water. Sit down on the chair as near to the steam as possible, but don't lean over it. Put your head back and place the flannel over your face. Then relax. Try to keep it in place for at least ten minutes, topping up the hot water intermittently .

After ten minutes, take the flannel away and open the sugar and spice face mask. I chose that one because its scrummy delicious! When you first apply it, it takes you by surprise because its hot! Somehow putting it on damp skin makes it warm up and your face feels divine when its rubbed in. Or use any face mask that you feel comfortable with.

Sit back in the chair and leave it on for another ten minutes. The warmth of the mask will bring the blood up to your face and you will feel a lovely warm tingle to your skin.

When the time is up, rinse your face with warm water. Then comes the steam. Place your head over a steaming basin until your skin starts to drip with sweat. This is bringing out all the impurities and cleansing off the last of the masks residue. When you have finished, turn off the taps, and open a window.

Take the other flannel and soak it in cold water. The colder the better. Then place it over your face and take a seat for a few minutes. If you have any cucumber, now is the time to apply it to your eye area, underneath the flannel.

Cucumber is a great astringent, it closes the pores, and helps to get rid of bags under the eyes. Stay there for as long as you feel comfortable.

Nearly There! Time for the New You!

Now for a massage. Remove the flannel and splash cold water on your face. The heat and cold of the water is stimulating your facial skin bringing blood to the surface. That alone will make you look rosy red and younger.

Now for the light moisturiser. Don't use thick cream as this isn't meant to moisturise your skin, but to just make sure you don't pull on your skin when doing the next stage.

Apply the moisturiser to your finger tips and start to massage around your face. Do this in circular motions once again so as not to pull the skin. Massage deeply but not for too long. Just circle each area with your fingers, pushing upwards as you apply the lotion.

Gently pat around the eye area, as this is the most sensitive part of your face. Don't forget your lips.

Now its time to relax for a few minutes. Drink as much water as you can at this stage as the massage will have released impurities into your system. Drinking the water will rehydrate you and your skin, and clean out the dirty stuff left behind.

Sit back, and once again place a warm flannel over your face. Take your time, as by now you are going to be quite relaxed. You will probably want to fall asleep by now, that's what normally happens to me at this stage. Your face will feel fantastic.

After ten minutes, change flannels and use the ice cold water flannel again. Just for a few minutes. This is to close the pores, tighten up the skin and make it ready for the moisturiser.

To finish, splash with cold water. Try to get it as cold as possible.

Did you know?

Paul Newman soaked his face in freezing water every day to keep wrinkles at bay! He did this into his eighties, And it worked!

Now for the moisturiser. Your skin will feel terrific after all this hard work. You won't need a thick face cream because your skin will be smooth, soft and look gorgeous! Just add a small amount of light moisturiser and rub in gently.

Finished? Now go take a look in the mirror!

Did I hear you say wow?

I think Joan Crawford used ice water when she finished washing her face...guess the stars no something we don't ;) This sounds very invigorating Nell. I don't know about getting the Sugar & Spice mask here in the US but I do know your facial sounds good! I'll have to try it.

Voted up, useful, and interesting.

Great advise (all of it) easy and inexpensive, but most effective. I had my own skin care business for over 30 years so I know that this works.

The cosmetic industry is brainwashing people into buying things they don't need and can't afford, but truth be told, most people are very lazy and don't believe in things that do not cost an arm and a leg.


Rayne123 3 years ago

Great hub Nell, but what is the sugar and spice mask, can you make it at home.

What exactly do you mean by flannels, you mean towels

I must try this, I knew cold water or ice cubes were good for your face and I also read somewhere that rubbing an ice cube through your hair was very stimulating also.

thank you

bravewarrior 3 years ago from Central Florida

This is very useful. I don't use moisturizer because my facial skin is very oily. I do wash my face with hot water then use witch hazel to further cleanse the pores. It acts as a pore-closing agent also. This regiment sounds devine, although I don't think I'd go through the entire process myself.

Angela Blair 3 years ago from Central Texas

Sounds like a good plan to me -- and I'll give it a try. I divide my time up two ways as far as complexion goes -- half the time I spend thanking God for not giving me all the wrinkles I deserved to get and the other half I spend trying to minimize the ones I've got. Thanks for all the good info! Best/Sis

I recall hearing that about Paul Newman and he sure did have a young looking face. I use the scrubbing beads before I get into the shower so I can rinse it away easier and can apply to neck and chest too. This sounds really good and I bet it is true about the heavy creams, I always wondered about these women going to bed with a pile of cream on their faces and they don't look any younger looking do they?

Thanks for the info, interesting and useful!

Hi Nell. I´m sure this is great but sounds too much like hard work to me, so when I get rich on earnings from HP LOL...I will treat myself to a proper going over. I know I´m going to be in dire need of a makeover before I launch myself in to job hunting when I return to the UK...as things stand now I get more like granny Klampit by the day. Someone did give me a couple of facial cleansing masks once and they were wonderful and cooling here in the heat, don´t expect I´ll be needing those in the UK either so will ask for a hot one when i treat myself to a salon do. Hope you OK Nell and feeling like a spring chicken now the weathers improving :)

Suzie HQ profile image

Hi Nell,

Great tips here, iced water and hot flannels are excellent for opening up and closing the pores and i always recommend doing the cold splash at the end of a facial treatment or application. The skin as you say does not need loads of products and quite often the simple things are often the best. A facial massage is also great for rejuvenating the skin each day and can be incorporated into your moisturizing application. loved your nod to to the natural ingredients of sugar and salt as they really do wonders for the skin! Great job, voted up, useful, interesting and shared!

innerspin 3 years ago from uk

This sounds way more involved than my usual routine. I do cleanse, tone , moisturize, and have a regular scrub, but spending so long with the hot and cold compresses is not yet part of the deal. It really seems worthwhile from your information, thanks for highlighting this aspect. I'll also go for lighter creams. My skin does sometimes feel a bit clogged down with some night moisturizers.

Nell Rose,

30 came last year and I've just started to realize that I don't get to have the face or body of a kid for the rest of my life! "Good skin" was something that I had taken for granted and required no effort... until now. There are so many How-Tos and Should-Nots that I just get overwhelmed with what direction to go. I love your tip about heavy creams... they drill moisturize, moisturize, moisturize into your head and I've probably been doing too much. You had so many good tips and easy enough for me to follow :-) I must work on drinking more water... that is definitely my downfall. Thank you!

Voted up, useful and awesome!

Hi Cantuhear, oh to be 30 again! lol! yes the heavy creams pull down the skin, you are better off going to bed with just a dap around the eyes and mouth, and let the rest of your skin breath, and water is the best thing for your skin too, glad you liked it, and thanks!

I use DermalMD Even Tone serum with a papaya soap and I get faster results of my dark spots fading. But this serum alone also does a good job. I have oily skin n this somehow controls the amount of oil my face produces. Use it before bed. Face is smooth n moisturized n not oily when I wake up.
