Today I will share with you a DIY facial regime that I follow at home religiously to get smooth and glowing skin. All the ingredients used can be found easily at home. You can even call it an “organic facial”. And yes, it suits all skin types. Let’s begin right away.
Step 1 : Scrub
Take half a lemon, dip it in some granulated brown sugar and pour over some honey. Squeeze as you rub gently all over the face. Dip again in granulated brown sugar, if required. Don’t be scared to taste it if you get some over your lips. It tastes delicious! 😀 Leave it on for 5-7 minutes before you wash it off.
Step 2 : Blackhead/Whitehead Removal
Take a toothbrush (I have kept one separately for this purpose). Now, take a small bowl, squeeze some toothpaste and add a small teaspoon of soda bicarbonate (meetha soda). Mix it and put it over the toothbrush and now apply on the nose in gentle circular motions. Leave it on, again, for about 7-8 minutes and wash it off. Your nose will be as shiny as a mirror, without any signs of blackheads or whiteheads.
Step 3 : Face Pack
First let me tell you that this pack works well on acne prone skin too. So, take about a spoonful of ground nutmeg, spoonful of milk or water and half a spoon of honey. Mix all the ingredients well. Add water or milk as you go. Apply it with the help of a brush and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Milk has healthy fatty acids which help nourish the skin and honey is well known for its anti-inflammable and antibacterial properties. Nutmeg too calms the skin and works as an antioxidant.
Step 4 : Toning
Take a small bottle (200ml). Add equal parts of apple-cider vinegar and water. Shake the bottle, and your DIY toner is ready. Take a small cotton pad, pour some toner over it and give your face a good toning. It will not be pleasant smelling, but it is chemical-free and works better than other toners that contain alcohol.
Once you are done with these steps, go ahead and moisturise your skin well. This facial will definitely leave your skin much better than before, and will make it all clean, smooth and glowy. Hope this works as good as it has been working for me. All the products used are easily accessible and you don’t have to spend a lot to get healthy, glowing skin.
