DIY skincare My feel good factor - homemade facials

To get healthy glowing skin it is imperative to exfoliate.

  • Published:

This year, I’ve pledged to be good to my skin, starting with facials. If you’re in any way like me then you probably have issues getting the right exfoliator, can’t keep up a routine or just think facials are too demanding. In this article, I’ll be mostly biased towards combination skin type because that’s what I wake-up to every morning.


I wouldn’t advice use of regular soap or shower gel. A good facial cleansing bar or facial wash works just fine and are inexpensive. I use Johnson’s cleansing bar soap, then follow-up with Palmer’s deep cleanser.

This unclog pores, and generally preps your face for the rest of the routine.


To get healthy glowing skin it is imperative to exfoliate. Dead skin cells leave your skin looking dull and feeling very pasty. Clean& Clear from Johnson&Johnson does it for me.

To create an at-home exfoliator, you will need water and baking soda mixed into a paste-like form. Apply evenly on face. You wouldn’t have the soapy/foamy effect, but it works just fine.


Mash 1 whole avocado and mix with 1 teaspoon honey. Apply on face avoiding eye area. Leave on for 15-20 minutes and rinse with warm water. Alternatively, you can substitute Avocado for Oatmeal.

Facials don’t necessarily have to be daily (but if you can, why not?). I would suggest working this routine at least twice a week.
