It’s been a long time since my last blog. I am back with a new one on how to do cleanup/facial at home.
Being busy whole week with lots and lots of work, both outside and inside home becomes hectic for us and by the time weekend arrives we are too tired to step out of home again and go for some cleanup sessions in a salon.
Your face badly needs some care and pampering. Staying outside for whole day makes you face dull and oily. So what you can do is do a cleanup session on your own at home. Barely it takes maximum 30-45 mins if you have all the things handy.
I believe in doing a facial at home on my own and the end results which I get is what gives me relaxation and a soft and supple skin which everyone would like to have.
Benefits of having a cleanup/facial on your own at home:
i. You can save your money by using the products many times.
ii. You can save your time and have time for other things as well.
iii. You can use the products that you like and suits you well.
Steps to be followed for cleanup/facial:
i) Cleansing your skin with a cleanser – The cleanser will help in removing make-up, dead skin cells, oil, dirt, and other types of pollutants from the skin. It will also help to unclog pores and prevent skin conditions such as acne.
ii) Steaming your face – Steaming will help in opening the pores and pull out the dirt from your face. Your skin will be able to absorb the products you use like face masks/packs. It enhances the circulation.
Note: While steaming your face maintain a distance of at least 6 inches or else your skin might get burnt from the hot steam coming out.
iii) Exfoliate your skin – Exfoliating your skin is one of the most important part of your facial process. Use a good scrubber to scrub your skin to get rid of the dead skin cells and dirt properly. One minute of scrubbing is enough as over-scrubbing can make your skin harsh.
iv) Apply face mask/pack – The next step is to apply the face mask/pack. Our skin is now ready to absorb the product well which will result in a soft and supple skin. Use any clay face mask/pack or whatever product suits you well. This will remove the excess oil from your skin and will rejuvenate your skin. Apply the mask with a face pack brush leaving the eye and lip area and leave it for 10 minutes to dry. After that you can wash your face with luke warm water. You will feel refreshed and energetic.
v) Toning your skin – Toning your skin is very important after you apply the pack. Large facial pores allow more dirt, oil and toxins to enter the skin and cause irritation and infections. Facial toners tighten your pores, allowing fewer oils and toxins to settle into the skin. This creates a fresher, cleaner and less oily appearance preventing acne.
vi) Applying eye cream – The skin under your eyes is extremely sensitive. Chances of wrinkles, dark circles and fine lines are very high. Eye cream helps to nourish the skin, keep it moisturized and prevent dullness. … They also soften fine lines and make the skin under your eyes look youthful.
vii) Moisturize your face – After going through all the above processes your skin is now totally dry, so moisturizing your skin will hydrate the skin. Moisturize your skin with the most suitable product for your skin and try to apply it in moist skin which will help the skin to absorb it better.
After all these processes are done you can feel the difference. Your will have a glowing and radiant skin. If you have dry skin you can follow this process twice a week and if skin is oily you can try it thrice a week for best results.
Other steps to be followed everyday to get naturally glowing skin:
i. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
ii. Keep lot of fruits in your diet.
iii. Follow a healthy diet.
iv. Follow the cleansing, toning and moisturizing process everyday.
v. Cover your face with a stole while in traffic.
vi. Take less stress as it can release toxins in your body which will be visible on your face and can result in wrinkles and ageing.
Hope you all will like it and let me know about your perception regarding cleanup and facials. 🙂
