The Lexli At-Home Facial

Posted on

For skin that looks and feels its very best, its hard to beat the benefits of a professional facial using properly-formulated products. Despite that, countless Lexli customers have achieved optimal skin health and beauty by consistently implementing our basic skin care regimen at home. For those of you who prefer a DIY approach to your skin, we give you a happy medium: the Lexli at-home facial. Recommended for those with normal-to-dry skin, this facial protocol will leave your skin feeling blissful while giving it a gorgeous glow.

Before beginning the Lexli at-home facial, you will need to ensure that you have the proper tools on hand. Among them is a facial steamer (similar to this or available in beauty supply stores), a rotary brush (such as a Clarisonic), fresh towels and damp washclothes.

Step 1: Cleanse

  • Turn on steamer and remove makeup using your favorite product. (Micellar water is highly recommended, given its gentle nature.)
  • Moisten skin and apply Lexli Cleansing Lotion using a wet rotary brush.
  • Rinse face and blot gently with towel.
  • Spritz the skin with Lexli Tone & Balance.

Step 2: Steam and Exfoliations

  • Steam face for eight to 10 minutes, following the directions that came with your steamer. When finished, gently blot face dry.
  • Spritz the skin with Tone & Balance.

We highly recommend that extractions are best left to the professionals. However, with great care it can be possible to get good results at home. Take a look at this overview of how to pop a pimple and keep in mind that you must be gentle with your skin or you risk scarring.

  • Extractions must be performed right after steaming. Using a facial tissue wrapped around your forefingers, gently squeeze blackheads. Reposition your fingers each time you squeeze. If, after a few attempts, you are unable to clear the pore, it's time to move on or you can damage the skin.
  • Spritz the skin with Tone & Balance.

Step 3: Mask

  • Apply Lexli Lightening Lift across entire face using gentle, upward strokes.
  • Allow product to sit on the face for 10 to 15 minutes or until fully dry.
  • Gently remove with warm compresses.
  • Spritz the skin with Tone & Balance.
  • (Optional: Apply Lexli AloeGlyC®.)

Step 4: Moisturize
