We spent the day with Decléor and Nichola Joss, celebrity facialist, to learn how to do an at-home facial using a range of Decléor products.
Cleanse the skin
To help prep your skin for all the other products in your facial routine, you first need to do a thorough cleanse. The new Decléor Bi-Phase is a great option as it contains micellar technology along with the power of an effective cleansing oil for a super cleanse.
To use, shake it to activate and then pour onto cotton pads before applying onto dry skin. Start from the centre of your face and sweeping outwards and upwards till you have removed all your makeup and impurities from the day.
Spritz with a facial mist
The Decléor Aurabsolu Mist helps to rebalance and prep the skin for the next stage in your at-home facial routine.
Exfoliate with the Phytopeel Exfoliating Cream
The Decléor Phytopeel Exfoliating Cream helps to get rid of dead skin cells and leave the complexion glowing.
Massage for 30 seconds to 1 minute in circular motions using a pea-sized amount. Work from the centre outwards and upwards, and then along the jawline, concentrating on the chin area where hormonal breakouts can occur. Work up around the nose to finish.
Remove with a warm cloth, flannel or warm water.
Face mask for a radiant look
The Decléor Prolagène Lift Contouring Lift Firm Mask is a gorgeously thick and rich texture which encourages you to massage the skin and muscles. This helps to encourage blood-flow for a healthy glow and natural lift.
Use a 20 pence size of the mask and pop onto the fingers before massaging into the skin constantly for 1 minute. In circular motions, massage all around the face across the jawline and under the eye area using sweeping movements to massage the product deeply into the skin.
Remove the mask with a warm flannel, cloth or water.

Massage with the Rejuvenating Lavender Balm
The Decléor Aromessence Lavandula Iris Night Balm is packed full of essential oils, which not only help to prep the skin but also gets you in the mood for sleep.
Because it's a balm, it encourages you to massage into the skin, and then melts into an oil upon contact, which makes it perfect for a facial massage technique.
Use a small amount and rub into the fingers before pressing the product into the skin. Use sweeping motions along the jawline using your fingers like scissors, before massaging along the cheekbones to relieve stresses and tension from the day. The next stage is massaging across the brow bones, which helps to relieve headaches.
Finally, sweep the balm outwards across the neck to stimulate the lymphatic system and help drain toxins.
It's a really lovely nighttime massage product - Nichola Joss
