When my budget is tight and time is unavailable for a professional skincare treatment, I instantly research DIY treatments I can do at home. DIY facials and masks are almost always available at my fingertips. However, it is hard to know if I am actually doing my skin a favor. Questions such as “Am I supposed to tap or rub the product in?” and “Do I start with my cheeks or forehead?” seem silly, but are crucial for an effective skincare routine. Thankfully, Dermalogica released a four step very detailed DIY Face Massage to keep skin glowing all day. They uncovered the secret for all-day dewy skin using their new Phyto Replenish Oil and a DIY Face Massage that is extremely easy to follow. After cleansing, press four to six drops into skin and follow steps one to four. For best results, follow the process with a moisturizer.
- Forehead Wrinkle Release: Press fingertips into forehead and glide toward temples. Press. Repeat three times.
- Revitalize Eyes: Press between brows, then glide index fingers around the brow bone and under eyes. Move in an “S” shape between brows. Press. Repeat three times.
- Glow Point Detox: Press and then glide between points at sides of nostrils, under cheekbones, and in front of ears. Repeat three times.
- Jawline Stress Release: Massage jawline in small upward circles beginning with chin. Press at points below ears and glide down neck and collarbone.
The Phyto Replenish Oil can also be mixed with an SPF for daily sun protection or primer for the perfect makeup base.
