This saves money and also my skin becomes better now because I am using natural products. You can too do facial at home as it’s very easy. In this article I will tell you step by step procedure to do facial. Let’s get started:
Step 1: Cleansing
The very first step is to clean your skin using a cotton ball. Dip the cotton ball in raw milk and apply it on your skin in circulation movement. This will remove all the dirt from your skin. After cleansing, wash your face with cold water. You can use your face wash also to clean your skin but make sure to use oil free face wash if you have oily skin.
Step 2: Exfoliating
Next step is exfoliation; means removing dead skin from your face. If you have a face scrub then you can use that to exfoliate your skin. I will tell you how to make a natural, homemade scrub using ingredients from your kitchen. We will be using baking soda to exfoliate your skin because it has the property of skin whitening. Baking soda also removes any white and beachheads and make your skin clean. So add 1 tablespoon of baking soda with few drops of water and mix it well. Now rub this paste on your face in circular motions for 2-3 minutes. Once the paste become dry removes it with warm water and splash your face later with cool water.

It helps in opening up skin pores and makes your skin glowing. So for steaming, boil the water in a vessel and add few drops of rosewater in it. Now cover your face with a towel and lean down to take steam from the hot water. Take steam for 10-15 minutes by taking gaps in between. Once done, wash your face with cool water.

It’s time to apply facial mask on your face. Facial mask should be chosen according to your skin type. For oily skin use mud/clay mask as this skin type need extra care. For dry skin, go for any creamy mask and for sensitive skin use any light gel mask. I will tell you how to make your own facial mask at home for each skin type.

So for this skin type we will be making multani mitti or fuller earth mask. Multani mitti is very effective remedy for treating acne and pimples.
