3. face mask (clay-based for oily skin, cream or gel mask for dry skin)
Clean your face. Remove all makeup and then wash your face, neck and ears with a good facial cleanser. I like to use the Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towlettes. Follow up with the cleanser of your choice and be sure to use a clean facial brush to make sure the product is thoroughly cleansing your skin.
If certain areas of your face are oilier than others, give that section an extra scrub. If you have the time scrub your lips as well. The skin on your lips is very sensitive so use honey and brown sugar for a simple clean.
Steam to open up your pores. There are a few ways to steam your face. You can do it over the stove or use a professional face steamer. If you don’t have a steamer fill a bowl about the size of your face (or bigger) with hot water. Place a large towel over your head and the bowl. Sit with your face as close to the bowl as possible for 15-20 minutes.
It’s time to apply your mask. If you have oily skin, use a clay mask. For dry skin, I suggest using a hydrating cream or gel mask. Depending on the mask, leave it on for the suggested amount of time and then rinse completely.
