Poor Women's Facial

Heyyyy Everyone, 

I thought I would share with you one of my beauty tips today. Beware beauticians because I am about to steal all of your clients!!! JOKE! If you can afford to get facials please continue to get them, this is by no means a replacement for a facial, this is just for people like me who can't afford facials (BOOHOO for me). 

So just recently I have been suffering quite badly with black heads. I noticed that when I got out the shower they were more noticeable and realised this is because I have my showers SOOOO hot that the steam was opening my pores! That reminded me of what my mum used to make me do when I was a young teenager suffering with acne. So here goes;

Step 1: Fill a bowl with boiling hot water (from the kettle)

Step 2: Place your face over the bowl and put a towel on your head - so that the steam is trapped in with you

Step 3: You should stay like this for as long as you can stand but please do not burn yourself!! 

Step 4: As soon as I take my face out I like to find some of the big spots or blackheads that have come right to the surface and squeeze them out (warning: I am not sure if this is technically right so beauticians please do not jump down my throat, but I always think better out than in ay! LOL)  

Step 5: Cleanse your skin - you can get really cheap cleansers from Superdrug, I normally wait till there is one on offer. At the moment I am using 'Simple kind to the skin pore minimising toning cleanser'

Pretty easy don't you think! I would normally try to do this on a Saturday night as I know I won't be wearing make up on a Sunday, Sunday is my face's day of rest! I think its better to do this when your not going to wear make up for a while because you don't want to open your pores and then clog them back up again! On the sunday I would wash with a soap bar and then cleanse in the morning and evening just to keep my skin fresh throughout the day! 

Give it a go and tell me what you think. It's not exactly advice from a beautician but sometimes its the simple things that make a difference!
