Spa Night at Home or Spa Day at Home Ideas

DIY At Home Facial Steps
Cleanse the Skin
The first step of any skincare facial is to cleanse the skin and remove any impurities, dirts, and oils that could be lurking in the pores. Our Absolue Nurturing & Brightening Oil-In-Gel Cleanser with Grand Rose Extracts is a hydrating facial cleanser that gently purifies the skin, effortlessly removing impurities as well as long lasting and waterproof makeup. Made with a precious blend of cleansing oils and Grand Rose Extracts, this nurturing gel facial cleanser moisturizes skin as it gently removes impurities, sweat and excess sebum. The nurturing, oil-in-gel formula protects the moisture barrier and leaves skin feeling smoother, softer and more energized.
To cleanse skin as the first step in your at home facial:
• Apply a generous amount of the formula onto dry skin, spreading it on the entire face, but avoiding the eye area.
• Using dry fingers, gently massage the formula on skin in circular motions until it melts into an oil.
• Add water and massage again to create a luxurious, milky fluid.
• Rinse off the cleanser to unveil divinely cleansed skin, rinsing from the center to the exterior of the face.
Apply a Facial Mask
A skincare treatment or facial mask is like a supercharged version of your favorite serum or moisturizer and it’s designed to give a burst of benefits and hydration to your skin. A special product you can look to incorporate into your skincare facial routine a few times a month our Absolue Precious Cells Revitalizing Rose Face Mask is an opulent gel face mask infused with genuine rose petals. After use skin feels refreshed, smoothed, nourished, and is plumped with moisture.
How to apply a facial mask into your at home facial routine:
• After cleansing apply the mask generously with the fingertips over the face and neck, avoiding the eye contour and mouth areas.
• Leave facial mask on for 10 minutes before removing with a damp wash cloth and rinsing any excess.
Use Skin with A Serum
Whilst a moisturizer hydrates a serum helps to target specific concerns or boost a certain quality or attribute. Which serum you choose to incorporate as part of your skincare facial will depend on your skin concerns and priorities. If looking to treat yourself to Absolue pick from one of our two serums:
For day: For a daytime facial and at home spa experience look to use Absolue Revitalizing Oléo Serum -- A moisturizing, face serum that targets signs of aging and reveals firmer, suppler and radiant skin that is plumped with moisture. It has rapid effects on the look and feel of skin so it’s perfect for a quick boost and pick-me up. After four hours, skin is firmer, more toned and more elastic. After one day, skin looks radiant and feels revived to the touch. After three weeks, skin looks renewed and radiant all day long.
For the evening: For the evening time try Absolue Overnight Repairing Bi-ampoule Serum. Inspired by clinical skincare treatments this Concentrated Anti-Aging Serum gives Overnight Skin Surface Barrier Reparation – its overnight skin repair in a drop. Like a “supercharged serum,” the Absolue Bi-Ampoule is made with a bi-phased formula that provides fast, visible anti-aging results and 24-hour hydration, while repairing skin’s moisture barrier. Its overnight benefits will leave you waking up with glowing, hydrated skin.
Hydrate Skin with Moisturizer
After using a serum it’s important to follow up with a moisturizer to add hydration to the skin. For total hydration and nourishment in your at home facial look to one of our most hydrating moisturizers – Absolue Soft Cream. The luxurious cream infuses skin with intense hydration, leaving skin looking firmer and brighter. As it is applied onto the skin, it transforms into a serum-like lotion that absorbs seamlessly, infusing skin with moisture without leaving a greasy or sticky feel. Absolue Soft Cream accelerates the surface cell renewal process for improved skin exfoliation, leaving skin feeling smoother and suppler, with a more even appearance. If you have extra-dry skin and need a real extra dose of hydration look to use our Absolue Rich Cream – the Indulgent cream visibly revitalizes skin with moisture, firmness and plumpness. The formula starts out as a thick hydrating cream, to a thin serum-like lotion, to a thick layer for plumping skin with moisture – it’s the perfect indulgent treat for ultra-dry skin.
Care for the Eye Area
In any skincare routine you should pay attention to the delicate eye area, but especially when performing an at home facial. For ultimate hydration and the ultimate at home facial spa experience try to incorporate both an eye serum and an eye cream.
To give total care to the eye area start with an eye serum like our Absolue Revitalizing Eye Serum -- this revitalizing eye serum targets the delicate skin around the eyes, one of the face's most expressive features. The eye serum reveals eye contours that look rested and rejuvenated for a brighter, more youthful look. Immediately after use, skin looks fresher and feels hydrated, velvety to the touch.
For eye cream look to Absolue Revitalizing Eye Cream -- an indulgent eye cream that instantly diminishes the appearance of eye wrinkles and crow’s feet. Day after day, Absolue Eye Cream provides firmness to the delicate skin around the eye contours and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles, crow's feet, and puffiness.
To care for the eye area:
• Apply eye cream twice daily, in the morning and at night, on clean, dry skin or after using your eye serum.
• Using your fingertips, apply small pearls of the cream to the delicate area under the eye, dotting from the outer to inner corners.
• Gently massage the cream on the eye area using small, circular motions.
• Avoid pulling the skin and applying too close to the eyes.
Apply Lip Balm
As the final step in your at home facial it’s important not to forget the lips. For softer, more supple lips apply Absolue Nourishing Lip Balm Honey-In-Rose which wraps lips in a luxurious rich salve. With the combination of Acacia Honey, Beeswax and Rosehip Seed Oil, the balm helps to leave dry lips feeling nurtured, smoother and plumper.
In partnership with Slip we have created two exclusive bundles for your at-home facial routine. Each contain our top Absolue Soft Cream (or rich cream) a SlipSilk hair scrunchie and trending skincare tool – a cooling globe – this set is a great addition to your at home facial.
