To clean your face at home you need a few but good products: a cleansing mousse, an exfoliating gel and a moisturizing mask. A pinch of patience and a lot of delicacy.

Dermatologists have always recommended it: beautiful skin starts with cleansing the face. But it is not necessary to go to the beautician, the experts themselves specify. You can safely "operate" alone at home (on balance, facial cleansing is a real beauty operation). just a few products and about 40 minutes to dedicate to yourself. And then often the facial cleansing at home is more delicate than the professional one, to the benefit of the skin's delicacy. The reason? Often it is more gentle in squeezing blackheads, at least after seeing the first red nail marks! Read more: we will reveal to you step by step how to clean the face as seen by the beautician .

Do-it-yourself facial cleansing: the steps

Before you start, put your hair back with a headband and wash your hands. Sometimes this last step is overlooked, but it is of fundamental importance. Touching the face - and everything related to it - with dirty hands means carrying the (invisible) germs on the skin and giving rise to probable rashes and irritation.

This is how you cleanse your face with a cleanser, even if you don't wear makeup or have been at home all day. The ideal is a rinse-off product that eliminates impurities without leaving residues. So much the better if it is delicate: "degreasing" the skin from the early stages of facial cleansing is not necessary, as it will be thoroughly cleansed in the following steps.

For example, use a moisturizing cleanser such as anti-aging cleansing mousse Fruttonero containing calendula and organic aloe vera juice, which have a soothing action. Bearberry extract helps to brighten the skin. Active organic pomegranate water counteracts the sensation of tight skin.

After cleansing the skin, it is the turn of the exfoliant in microgranules to eliminate dead cells. Apply it to your face that is not completely dry. Massage it with your fingertips, using circular movements. Try not to exert too much force or to rub: you are not removing a stain from a fabric 😊 Rinse your face with warm water, and pat dry with a soft towel. For a more exfoliating action, we suggest you leave it on for about 5-10 minutes before removing the product. In addition to the microspheres, the anti-aging exfoliating gel Fruttonero for example contains the mandelic acid which it removes with sweetness the dead cells, responsible for the opacity of the face. If it remains in contact with the skin, it is more effective in terms of brightness and silkiness.

Facial cleansing: the steam bath

And we arrive at the fateful moment of steam, a necessary step to eliminate the black points with ease. And above all without scars.

Do this: in a saucepan, boil some water in which you have poured two teaspoons of bicarbonate . Wait for it to cool down a bit to be able to use it without scalding yourself: boiling water is no friend of beauty! Place a towel on your head and lean over the bowl at a distance of about 20 centimeters. To get the most out of your steam bath, add rosemary essential oil with a purifying action. If not, a sprig is fine too.
How long? 10-15 minutes of steam are enough to open the face.

At this point you can dedicate yourself to squeezing the blackheads .The essential premise is that only the obvious ones should be crushed: sticking to invisible or too small blackheads means 99% of the time getting scars. The operation is therefore very delicate. Protect your fingers and nails with paper towels and press without forcing. Immediately afterwards, rinse your face with cold water to close the pores. For a soothing action you can make a do-it-yourself tonic solution with chamomile, perhaps using part of the water you used for the bath. steam. Absolutely avoid alcohol or vinegar, which have an irritating action.

The final hydration

After cleaning the skin thoroughly with steam, it is very important to moisturize the skin. Don't forget, therefore, to apply a face mask for a regenerating action. Those in fabric have the added value of refreshing, a need that becomes essential between hot steam and squeezing. The anti-aging mask Fruttonero is in a sheet of organic cellulose soaked in hyaluronic acid and plumping glucomannan. The mix of organic vegetable oils, including rice bran and macadamia oil, make the skin firm and soft. Leave on for 15 minutes and voilà your facial cleansing is complete!
