Hello guys! So, wanna know how to get a facial in the comfort of your own home without spending a single rupee? Read on to find out how:
Stuff You Will Need:
- Your favorite face wash.
- A towel.
- Exfoliating cream (optional).
- Sugar crystals.
- Besan/chick pea flour.
- Lemon juice.
- Rose water.
- Essential Oil (optional).
- Patience (compulsory).
Step 1: Cleaning.
Wash your face with your regular face wash. But now, take a couple of minutes extra and gently massage your skin in circular motions. Wash it off with cold water.
Step 2: Exfoliating
If you have an exfoliating cream, awesome. But if not, don’t you worry! Just add the sugar crystals in your face wash or the face pack. It’ll work as good as an exfoliating cream. Massage the exfoliating cream well again in circular motions for about two minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water.
Step 3: Steaming
Steaming does the same job as exfoliating, but in addition, it removes all the gunk and blackheads/ whiteheads on your nose. Boil the water and add a few drops of essential oil. Steam for 5 minutes. Pat your skin dry. Do not rub your skin.
Step 4: Face pack
Make a quick face pack by adding one tablespoon of besan, a pinch or two of turmeric, a teaspoon honey, a teaspoon lemon juice, milk and a few drops of rose water. Mix everything well and quickly apply it on to the face and neck while gently massaging in circular motions. Take time to massage it really well, the longer the better. Allow it to rest on your face and neck for 15-20 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water. Pat dry.
Step 5: Moisturizing
People often skip this step in hurry, but this step is really crucial. Apply your moisturizer to lock in moisture. You have exfoliated your skin, now it needs moisture! So give it!
Step 6: Sit back and adore the person in the mirror. Your patience will be payed off well.
P.S. You can do this facial once a week. Your skin would be glowing within a couple of months. The crucial key to get flawless skin is massaging. You can add or subtract the ingredients in the list mentioned above as per your choice. This is a very basic and easy method to take care of your skin in my opinion. I have been following this routine since many months now and I am pretty happy with the results. In extremely rare cases, you may breakout in the initial days of this routine, but need not worry, it only means your skin is getting rid of any impurity. Also, I request you guys to make sure that your hands and towels are properly washed before they touch your skin because otherwise it ruins the purpose of the whole facial thing, doesn’t it? This facial will not only save your money , ut you will have full control on what you choose to apply on your skin and there isn’t one chemical in the whole process. So, its ayurvedic at the same time.
