How to DIY Your Facial with Chanel

While most of us are stuck at home for the unforeseeable future, we shouldn’t have to sacrifice treating ourselves to a little facial.

Last week I was given a unique “virtual” at home facial which ended up being almost as good as the real thing!

My friends at Chanel sent me a beauty bag full of fun new products {more on that later} to try out and set up a consultation with their skin health expert, Melanie Grant. Melanie offered simple step-by-step instructions and demonstrated how a few small techniques can make a big difference for not only your skin, but overall wellbeing. Here are a few top tips I learned from the Chanel team on how to DIY my facial at home.

No.1

Start With A Clean Face

Don't just wash your face once, try two or three times to make sure your skin is nice and clean. Using a device such as a Foreo can be very effective. You'll want to use this opportunity to thoroughly exfoliate your skin. We used this exfoliation lotion by Chanel along with cotton swabs to thoroughly buff out the skin. 

No.2

Massage

Following the cleanse and exfoliation, Melanie walked us through a face massage that includes upward strokes using your ring finger and middle finger. You use these fingers because they apply less pressure and you don't want to be too rough on your skin. Start with your neck and work upwards. We used my new favorite face oil by Chanel for this. Be sure to use plenty of product so your skin doesn't snag while you massage. 

No.3

Mask It

If you are going to do a face mask at home, now is the time {before you moisturize}. I especially love this repair mask. It's very rich and offers ample hydration if your skin is feeling parched. Leave the mask on for 10 minutes and rinse off with warm water.

No.4

Steam It

If you have an at home steamer, this is the time to crank that baby up. I absolutely love my steamer by Dr. Dennis Gross. You can also heat up the shower and get some steam going for a quick steam session. 

No.5

Moisturize

Lastly, apply any serums followed by your eye cream. I absolutely LOVE the new eye cream I tested out by Chanel and was also introduced to their incredible moisturizer. I cannot believe it's taken me so long to try it. 

The most important element to giving yourself a stellar DIY facial at home is to really set the tone for relaxation. Light up some candles and put on some relaxing music. Perhaps you can carve out some time to draw yourself a bath and pour a glass of wine.

Through these crazy times that we find ourselves in, it is incredibly important to make time to take care of yourself. Even if it’s 20-30 minutes of pampering yourself with a DIY facial at home, the rewards will carry you for weeks to come!

What are you doing to take care of yourself at home?
