A Skin Recovery Mini-Facial: Scenario 2


Welcome to part two of my Bella mini-series on the mini-facial, where I'll detail specific fast skin recovery routines for those mornings where a face wash just isn't enough. Sometimes your skin needs a little extra boost before you face the day, and we all know trying to mask a skin problem with makeup alone can make it worse. So, check out my tips for righting what went wrong overnight.


Scenario 2: Monday night is Booty-Shakin' 90s Karaoke Night at your favorite local watering hole, and you passed out with a face full of glitter. When you catch yourself in the mirror in the morning, you realize it's a day when Cetaphil just won't cut it.

Here's what to do:

  1. Remove all the makeup with a cleansing oil, like DHC Deep Cleansing Oil ($11). The oil attracts the oil from on your skin, whether it's from makeup or your pores.
  2. Take off any eye makeup that's left with eye makeup remover and cotton balls.
  3. Wash your face with an exfoliating cleanser. Try Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub ($5.84).
  4. Follow by dabbing on a gentle toner, like Kiehl's Cucumber Herbal Alcohol-Free Toner ($10).
  5. Apply a light moisturizer and eye cream. Put on makeup as usual — but you may want to skip the glitter this time.
