We always say, 80% of your skin health happens at home. Here are some tips, tools, and quick at-home facials to leave your skin looking clear, feeling smooth, and with a radiant glow.
You don’t need much to do at-home facials, just the right products, and your hands really. But we have a few tools that we love to use at home.
The Skin Shammy
Washable and reusable, this shammy is an ideal alternative to ineffective cotton wool pads and harsh face washers. Its soft and silky texture allows for gentle cleansing action. It can be used to thoroughly remove cleansers, face masks and makeup.
O Sonic Cleansing Brush
A revolutionary cleansing approach using a combination of Sonic pulsations and silicone fiber touchpoints. The O Sonic from O Cosmedics is 35% more hygienic than any other cleansing brush on the market and delivers a gentle yet deep cleanse which supports healthy skin function and age management control in just two minutes a day! Up to 8,000 pulsations per minute (3 speeds) which are channeled through soft silicone touchpoint fibers which gently remove dead skin cells and stimulate blood supply for softness and radiance. The deep cleansing pulsations also unclog pores up to 99.5% and remove makeup residue by 98.5%. Use the O Sonic ‘smooth side’ on low-frequency pulsations to lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a youthful look and feel.
These fuzzy little wands can help you with extractions. Just take two q-tips and place on either side (or above and below) of your blackhead. Then gently press down and pull up as you squeeze (you trying to come from below the blackhead to gently extract).
This tool is all about multi-tasking. They do everything from toning, sculpting, and firming skin to boosting circulation to enhance your glow, reduce puffiness, minimize fine lines, and improving elasticity. It’s also said they can help skincare products penetrate better and assist with detoxifying.
An easy at-home ingredient to help reduce under eye puffiness and dark circles. Green tea contains antioxidants that have an anti-inflammatory effect. The tannins in green tea can help to tighten the skin and draw out fluid to further alleviate puffiness. Simply use the green tea bag as a cold compress to treat. We recommend brewing the tea and then placing it in the fridge to chill. Just drop in some 2×2 pads and apply to the skin. As the pads warm, you can replace them with a cool pad.
Here are some #athomefacial routines with Epionce and O Cosmedics products that will leave your skin looking and feeling like you just walked out of the spa:

Deep Clean + Hydrate Facial
Is your skin feeling bumpy or rough? It’s time to resurface and hydrate with a deeply penetrating cleanse, exfoliation, and hydrating mask. The result? Silky smooth glowing skin.
Step 1. Cleanse with O Cosmedics Gentle Anti-Oxidant Cleanser using gentle circular strokes. Rinse with The Skin Shammy.
Step 2. Double cleanse with Epionce Lytic Gel Cleanser. But this time we are going to use it as a mask. Apply the cleanser with gentle circular strokes, massaging into particularly congestion areas. Leave the cleanser on for 3-5 minutes. Wet face again and use the O Cosmedics Sonic Cleansing Brush for 3-minutes for a super deep cleanse. Rinse with cool water and pat dry. Proceed with manual extractions if needed.
Step 3. Apply O Cosmedics 3-in-1 Fruit Peel Mask and leave on skin for 5-7 minutes. Rinse with cool water and The Shammy, pat dry.
Step 4. Apply either the O Cosmedics Hydrating Sleep in Mask or the Epionce Firming Mask for maximum hydration. Either mask can be worn as a sleep-in mask; simply apply a thinner layer. Or if you’re not ready for bed, apply the mask a little thicker and massage in with a jade roller. Leave the mask on the skin for 20 minutes then rinse with cool water. Top off with your favorite Epionce Renewal moisturizer or O Cosmedics Hydrator.
