At least twice a week, I like to do a little three-step, at-home routine for my face using three different tools. It takes probably 20 to 35 minutes in total, hence why I don’t have the time or energy to do it as often as I would like, but I thought I would share it with you since I have been enjoying the results: refreshed, younger, tighter, and more moisturized skin.
Step 1: ORA Microneedle Face Roller
With a clean, make-up free face, I use the ORA Microneedle Face Roller with 0.25 needles around my forehead, temples, cheeks, chin, and jawline for three or four minutes. Essentially this creates microscopic wounds in your skin, which stimulates cell growth and regeneration in addition to allowing skincare products to absorb more effectively. And no, it doesn’t hurt! The needles are so small that you can comfortably roll your face without any sort of numbing agent.
Step 2: NuFACE Mini & Aloe Vera Gel
After microneedling is completed, I apply organic aloe vera gel to one side of my face, including the forehead, cheeks, jawline, chin, and neck. This works as a barrier/conductor for the NuFACE Mini facial toning tool (I dislike their included gel primer because it runs out quickly). The NuFACE is timed for five minutes and I use it for five minutes on one side of my face, followed by the other. If I’m feeling ambitious or binge watching something on Netflix, I’ll repeat this process, reapplying aloe vera gel as needed. The microcurrents from NuFACE also help to stimulate collagen and elastin. After that, I take a warm, damp washcloth and wipe the residual aloe vera gel from my face and neck. At this point, my skin feels tighter and more lifted.
Step 3: Farmacy Beauty Honey Potion Renewing Antixodiant Hydration Mask
I recently got this facial mask as a sample from Sephora and I liked it so much that I purchased the 4.1 oz version. At this point in my routine, I take a dollop and massage the mask into my face for two or three minutes. As you massage it in, the product begins to warm your face, which is a very soothing touch. I leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes, though you can rinse it as soon as 10 minutes. The mask leaves your skin feeling highly moisturized and plump. The raw honey ingredient has natural hyaluronic acid, which draws moisture in. Plus, the lingering smell of honey is really pleasant.
At the end of this routine, I feel as though I’ve left a professional facial. Yes, it’s time-consuming and you’re doing all the work, but I keep revisiting this three-step process because the results are there.
