I want to pamper myself tonight with a facial.
Steam, exfoliate, mask etc.

In what order should i do this? I was thinking:

- steaming the face
- exfoliate (baking soca scrub)
- cleanse (WGC)
- apply mask
- apply SA
- moisturize (jojoba oil)

Does this sounds okay or would you do it any other way? TIA!

ETA: I'm thinking about buying a face/complexion brush for exfoliation, (i have flakes around my nose all the time).
Can a brush damage your skin or is it safe to use?

    I'd skip the steam. Steam isn't inherently bad for skin, although it can trigger redness in people prone to redness/rosacea, steam just doesn't really do anything beneficial for the skin. I'd skip the baking soda too, because it's got a high pH, and it's just not what I want to use on my skin. What kind of mask are you using?

    Complexion brushes are good for manual exfoliation. Buff puffs are nice too, as are microfiber washcloths. Care should be taken to be careful not to scrub too deep with any of these things.
