I recommend that you create a daily cleansing regime for your skin however an at home facial is good for those of us who can afford to go to the spa and have a professional facial. It is recommend that you have a facial once a month, since I don't use harsh products I do it once a week or every two weeks. Listen to your skin, if you have very sensitive skin I would limit facials and only choose products I am familiar and comfortable with. BE Patient you will go through a trial an error phase; you may have to try several products before you find the one that works best for you. I WILL BE WRITING SPA RECIPES which will list different inexpensive recipes you can use for your spa treatment). Please use all your products according to the directions - they are there for a reason.

--Create the mood with Music, Water Fountain and Scented Candles - of course choose music and scents that you LOVE. Suggestions Lavender and Vanilla. (This is optional but nice to have)

--Bath Time - this is the time to pull out the body scrubs, loofahs and the bath fizzes. Exfoliate your skin invest in a bath brush and brush your skin prior to getting in the tub. Use your sponge to wash; this is a great time to try relaxing liquid soap. (Tip Epsom Salt is great for relaxation and its cheap)

--Once your bath is complete get in the shower and give yourself a good rinse after you get out the shower load on the moisturizer while your are still damp.

--Wash your face with your cleanser

--Next use a facial scrub to really clean our your pores.

-- Steam you face (5 to 10 Minutes) - This works wonders
