AT HOME FACIAL PROTOCOL

Wondering which products to use for your facial? See our PRODUCT GUIDE.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
  • Purchase the products you need for your facial from the GLOW ONLINE STORE. Find your products from our recommended product list.

  • Set aside 40-60 minutes, preferably at night when your skin is in repair mode while you're sleeping, to perform your facial.

  • Prep your hair by tying it up and wearing a headband, or wrap it up tightly with a towel.

  • Find a quiet place, light a candle or start your favorite diffuser, and put on some soothing music.

STEP 1: REMOVE MAKE-UP & CLEANSE SKIN
  • Remove your make-up with your favorite make-up remover or cleanser.

  • Cleanse your skin thoroughly a second time. 
    Dispense your cleanser into your hands and massage softly into dampened skin. Take your time. If you decide to cleanse in the shower, you can skip the steam step below.

  • Why you’re doing it: Removes surface debris so the treatments to follow enter your pores with ease.

STEP 2: EXFOLIATE
  • Gently massage a quarter-size amount of exfoliant onto your face in circular motions, avoiding the eye area for as long as your specific product recommends, usually 30 seconds to a minute.

  • Rinse off with warm water and gently pat your skin with a clean towel.

  • Why you’re doing it: Removes dead skin cells that accumulate on your skin’s surface, paving the way for subsequent treatments to absorb effortlessly.

STEP 3: APPLY A PEEL (OPTIONAL)
  • Massage a thin layer of product onto your face and neck. Skin may feel tingly. Leave on for 1-10 minutes as directed on product's instructions.  Remove immediately in case of excessive irritation.

  • Leave peel on while you steam.

  • Why you’re doing it: Removes the top layers of your skin to facilitate cell turnover so fresh, healthy cells can surface. Our Enzyme Peels will infuse your skin with a surge of powerful anti-aging, anti-acne, and revitalizing ingredients. 

STEP 4: STEAM
  • Option 1: Collect hot water in a large bowl in your bathroom sink. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil if desired. Place a towel over your head and the bowl to capture the steam for 5-10 minutes.

  • Option 2: Submerge a towel in hot water, squeeze out excess, and rest on your face for 5-10 minutes. 

  • The steam should not feel like it's burning you.

  • Remove peel with warm water and pat skin dry.

  • Why you’re doing it: Opens up pores, making them more receptive to treatments. Also hydrates skin, making it more supple and plush.

STEP 5: APPLY A MASK
  • Massage a generous amount of product onto your face in circular motions.

  • Leave on skin as directed on product. 

  • Optional: Add a lip scrub by mixing one teaspoon of honey with two teaspoons of sugar. Massage the mixture into your lips and leave for 10 minutes.

  • Rinse off with warm water and pat your skin dry.

  • Why you’re doing it: Most effective step for your skin care concerns. Physically covers the skin, allowing the active ingredients to penetrate and draw out impurities, tighten, hydrate, and brighten. 

STEP 6: APPLY A SERUM & MOISTURIZERS
  • Apply a serum by gently patting it onto your face.

  • Apply a moisturizer by massaging your face, focusing on points that are predisposed to wrinkles, such as your forehead and eyes. 

  • Apply an eye cream made for sensitive eye area.

  • Why you’re doing it: A serum deeply hydrates the skin to help visibly plump and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, while the moisturizer and eye cream boosts the integrity of the skin’s barrier function to protect against dehydration.

TIPS & TRICKS
  • Perform your facial once every week to two weeks.

  • Always use lukewarm water for cleansing and rinsing. Hot and cold water are hard on the skin.

  • Take deep breaths during your facial, especially as you wait for your mask to dry. Focusing on deep breathing and being mindful will make the overall experience more relaxing and fulfilling.
