For skin that looks and feels its very best, its hard to beat the benefits of a professional facial using properly-formulated products. Despite that, countless Lexli customers have achieved optimal skin health and beauty by consistently implementing our basic skin care regimen at home. For those of you who prefer a DIY approach to your skin, we give you a happy medium: the Lexli at-home facial. Recommended for those with normal-to-dry skin, this facial protocol will leave your skin feeling blissful while giving it a gorgeous glow.

Before beginning the Lexli at-home facial, you will need to ensure that you have the proper tools on hand. Among them is a facial steamer (similar to this or available in beauty supply stores), a rotary brush (such as a Clarisonic), fresh towels and damp washclothes.

Step 1: Cleanse

  • Turn on steamer and remove makeup using your favorite product. (Micellar water is highly recommended, given its gentle nature.)
  • Moisten skin and apply Lexli Cleansing Lotion using a wet rotary brush.
  • Rinse face and blot gently with towel.
  • Spritz the skin with Lexli Tone & Balance.

Step 2: Steam and Exfoliations

  • Steam face for eight to 10 minutes, following the directions that came with your steamer. When finished, gently blot face dry.
  • Spritz the skin with Tone & Balance.

We highly recommend that extractions are best left to the professionals. However, with great care it can be possible to get good results at home. Keep in mind, however, that you must be gentle with your skin or you risk scarring.

  • Extractions must be performed right after steaming. Using a facial tissue wrapped around your forefingers, gently squeeze blackheads. Reposition your fingers each time you squeeze. If, after a few attempts, you are unable to clear the pore, it's time to move on or you can damage the skin.
  • Spritz the skin with Tone & Balance.

Step 3: Mask

  • Apply Lexli Lightening Lift across entire face using gentle, upward strokes.
  • Allow product to sit on the face for 10 to 15 minutes or until fully dry.
  • Gently remove with warm compresses.
  • Spritz the skin with Tone & Balance.
  • (Optional: Apply Lexli AloeGlyC®.)

Step 4: Moisturize
