About once a week or so, i love to set aside a bit of time to give myself a facial, not only does it help your skin, keeping it super soft and clean but it's also relaxing and a pick me up on a 'bleurghh' day. 

1) Start off by washing your face either to remove makeup and any dirt with a cleanser of facial wash. My favourite and a holy grail product of mine is Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish.

2) Next, use a scrub or exfoliater to whisk away dead surface skin cells and clear blocked pores. I'm loving dermalogica daily microfoliant at the minute, which i received in a glossybox a couple of months ago. It's a rise based powder that you mix with water to create a paste, before massaging onto the face. 

3) Fill a bowl with a kettleful of freshly boiled water, then lean over the bowl, capturing the steam by placing a towel over your head. Stay there for around 5 minutes to allow the steam to warm and soften your skin although people with sensitive skin should skip this step.

4) Put on a face mask of your choice and leave for the required time before washing off. I've been loving the Avon planet spa face mask gift set which has lots of small packets of face masks suitable for different skin types and needs. The amount given is perfect as i often find that there is too much when using other face masks. 

5) Finish off your pamper session by doing the same night time skincare routine as usual.
