How to Give Yourself The Ultimate At-Home Facial

True Botanicals’ LA-based facial therapist Noelle Simons shares her insider skin-tel for an at-home facial. 


Maintaining healthy skin is a year-round process, meaning that your time spent housebound is just as important as visits to an esthetician. See below for your guide to the ultimate at-home facial. 

1. Cleanse

We’ve likely all been makeup free recently but don’t think you’re off the hook just yet. Studies have shown that the pollutants living in your home can sometimes be worse than those found outdoors. Opt for a double cleanse, just like your esthetician would give you. We recommend using this Pre-Cleanse Oil and Cleanser.

2. Exfoliate

Formulated with Lactic Acid, the Resurfacing Moisture Mask will dissolve away any dry, dead skin without harsh scrubs that stress out your skin. This mask takes 2-5 minutes, so make a herbal tea or grab some water while you wait. Then rinse with cool water and pat dry.

3.  Detox

The previous mask cleared the way to congested pores so the clay and charcoal can do their job easily and effectively. It’s now time to detox. Let this detox mask dry fully—anywhere from 10-15 minutes. Call a friend or family member while you wait (we promise, no uncomfortably tight or dry skin). When it’s time, rinse your face thoroughly and pat dry for soft, clean skin.

4. Mist or Tone

Take a deep breath and use your Nutrient Mists or Toner to prep your skin for ultimate hydration.

5. Moisturize

Moisturize with a Pure Radiance Oil and Repair Serum to nourish powerful antioxidants and anti-inflammatories.

6. Seal

Top off your facial with an overnight mask to hold in moisture and protect the skin from dehydration as you sleep. For an added bonus, use our Moisture Lock Lip Balm to keep your lips silky smooth.
