How to get professional results and full-on pampering without straining your budget

In addition to a pampering treat, facials are the key to healthy skin. To maintain a radiant healthy glow, you should try to fit in 2 facials per month (or one a week if you can make it happen!). If you follow these simple tricks of the trade, you will be amazed with the results you can achieve at home. Plus, I know how hectic it can be to try to squeeze in time for a facial at the spa or salon—now you’ll be able to get a great facial whenever it’s convenient for you—no commitment required. And if you get in the habit of doing your own facials, you’ll get to know your skin better—what it responds to in different situations. Ultimately this will keep it healthy, youthful and glowing. Being intimate with your skin is the first step to maintaining its beauty.
