If you have a kitchen, you probably have the ingredients to whip up a great facial mask at home. In these Howcast videos, salon facialist Joanna Vargas shows you how to make dozens of all-natural facial masks as well as how to make your own toner and facial scrubs. She also explains the different kinds of facial peels you can get at a salon and which professional facial treatments are best for you depending on your skin type.



OXYjet facials are something I get asked about a lot. They use micradermabrasion to start out with. Which is a form of exfoliation, which removes the top layers of skin to expose the fresh, dewy baby skin underneath. It is followed by an oxygen treatment that's infused with a serum made from vitamins and minerals and aloe, which helps to disinflame the skin and push the vitamins into the skin so that you get an instant lift. You get a glow right away, and your skin becomes really hydrated and perfect looking. Then it's followed by a collagen mask, which, again, is very anti-aging, very lifting, and stimulates collagen production in the skin. It's a nice, anti-aging facial treatment for people who are really concerned with having a fresh face and a dewy complexion all the time.
