Mischo Beauty School: Mini-Facials 101 & Mario Badescu



So those of you who follow me on Twitter know that I sent out a few "tweets" yesterday about the mini-facial I was giving myself. Mini-facials, like facials, are my "essential beauty product" - they're vital to maintaining my skin's health in between facial appointments.



I've decided to share my mini-facial routine with you because everyone can benefit from it- whether you receive monthly facials or not. My best advice is to invest in great products for your skin type/issues, and make mini-facials a part of your skincare routine. My skin type is normal/combination, with an oily t-zone and I used the following Mario Badescu products:



Cleanser: Enzyme Cleansing Gel ( all skin types)
Toner: Cucumber Cleansing Lotion (combination & oily skin types)
Exfoliant: (my own)
Mask: Enzyme Revitalizing Mask (combination, dry & sensitive skin types)
Eye Cream: Hyaluronic Eye Cream (all skin types)
Night Cream: Seaweed Night Cream (combination, oily & sensitive skin types)
Moisturizer: Collagen Moisturizer SPF 15 (combination & sensitive skin types)



So the steps are simply: Cleanse (Enzyme Cleansing Gel), Tone (Cucumber Cleansing Lotion), Steam Treatment, Exfoliate, Tone, Mask (Enzyme Revitalizing Mask), Tone & Moisturize (Hyaluronic Eye Cream, Seaweed Night Cream or Collagen Moisturizer SPF 15)!

So there you have it! Very easy- and anyone can do this! Please leave your questions in the comments section below and I'll get right back to you. Love your skin.

Hope this isn't a silly question, but what type of brush is in the picture? Do you use it to apply the product to your face?

To TeeliciousB: Not a silly question at all! I use the Clarisonic brush with my cleansers and exfoliants and I use the mask brush to apply my mask. :)

Lovely post! Your skincare routine sounds amazing. Just wondering - how do you conduct your steam treatment?

To Marsadie: Thank you! I haven't purchased a mini-steamer for home use yet, so I normally boil water and pour it into a large bowl. I direct the steam by holding a towel over my head and the bowl. If you decide to try this method, please do so with caution!
