Tired of Your Skin? How To Give Yourself a Facial At Home

Updated on January 19, 2014

Gloria taught for many years, and also worked as a mental health group facilitator.

Facials can be expensive, but what if you could add freshness and life to your tired skin for mere pennies?

I have come up with several techniques that can add a healthy glow without using costly procedures. If you have a jar of cheap cold cream and a soft toothbrush, you're well on your way to nicer skin. First of all, pull your hair back from your face and put on some soothing music--smooth jazz is a personal favorite of mine. Cover your skin with a thick layer of cream--try to use a bargain-priced product without mineral oil. Working carefully (never cut or scratch the skin) use a soft toothbrush to brush the top layer of skin with tender loving care. After about five minutes, rinse and splash with witch hazel, taking care to avoid the eyes. You will notice that after removing some cellular layers, your skin will seem to glow.

Part two: if you feel up to it, place a soothing clay or avocado mask over your skin and allow to dry. After it has dried, gently rinse with warm (not hot) water and carefully pat dry. Part three requires a mask of brewers yeast, available in most health food establishments. Take the dry Brewers Yeast out of the container, and add some water to form a slightly soupy mask. Apply this to your face, again, avoiding the eye area.

Part four--after allowing the brewers yeast to tighten (about 20 minutes), rinse with warm water and pat dry. Masks can be drying, so be sure to use a creamy moisturizer afterwards or sunscreen. I love this treatment as it has enabled me to look fresh and rested, even though I am over the age of fifty. The neck area can be very difficult to work with, as it tends to sag and look like the dreaded crepe we have all heard about. This treatment works for the neck area, but it does not give lift and definition as well as when applied to the face.

I have used this homemade treatment for years, and am frequently complimented on my skin.

Be flower-fresh With this homemade treatment!
