How to Do the Lexli At Home Facial

For skin that looks and feels its very best, its hard to beat the benefits of a regular professional facial using properly-formulated products. Despite that, countless Lexli customers have achieved optimal skin health and a glowing complexion by consistently implementing a skin care regimen appropriate for their skin type. For those of you who prefer a DIY approach to your skin or are unable to visit an esthetician on a monthly basis, we offer you the Lexli At Home Facial. Recommended for those with normal-to-dry skin, this facial protocol will leave you feeling like you spent an afternoon at the spa and your skin feeling blissful while giving it a gorgeous glow.

The products in the Lexli At-home Facial: Cleansing Lotoin, Tone & Balance, Lightening Lift, AloeGlyC, Revital-Eyes and Day Moisturizer with SPF 15

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 (available on Amazon or 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 skin with Lexli Tone & Balance facial toner.

Step 2: Steam and Extractions

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

Step 3: Mask

  • Apply Lexli Lightening Lift aloe vera mask across entire face using gentle, upward strokes.
  • Allow product to sit on the face for 10 to 15 minutes or until fully dry. When it cracks, it is ready.
  • Gently remove with warm compresses.
  • Spritz skin with Tone & Balance.
  • (Optional: Apply Lexli AloeGlyC glycolic acid exfoliator.)

Step 4: Moisturize

  • Gently dot Lexli Revital-Eyes firming eye cream along the perimeter of the eye.
  • Apply the Lexli moisturizer of your choice to the skin. If doing the facial during the day, a formulation with SPF is beneficial. Our recommendation, however, is to perform the facial in the evening and end with Lexli Night Moisturizer, our richest formulation.
