Do you NEED a fancy facial?

Few things in life are as relaxing as heading to the spa and laying down for a facial. Whether you’re going for a microdermabrasion or just getting some steam treatments and a nourishing mask, the results of a facial on your skin and your peace of mind are hard to deny. But their effect on your bank account? Less than beneficial.

While you are certainly welcome to get a facial anytime you want, you might be able to spread out your spa trips and save yourself a chunk of change when you use an at-home facial treatment.

A facial is great because it has the power to deliver antioxidants to your skin in a concentrated way. However, certain face washes, pre-soaked pads and other over-the-counter skincare products can have the same effect. Look for products that have antioxidants and natural extracts like tea tree oil and lavender oil for the best results.

Start with a gentle cleanser, and follow up with an exfoliant. Or, when you’re pressed for time and need a super-fast facial, reach for a product like Instant Lift Pads for cleansing, soothing and anti-aging benefits.
