Get best facials for your skin - Homemade Facials


Contrary to what most people think, having a facial at a beauty saloon is not a luxury. Professional facials help in a deep-cleansing routine that you cannot possibly do for yourself at home. Facials involve:

. Steaming, which helps to open out pores
. Cleansing to remove blackheads and white heads.
. This is followed by a face mask for skin rejuvenation.
. Then finally a skin dehydration treatment with a moisturiser.

Our skin regenerates cells about every three weeks, leading to an accumulation of dead cells. Facials help get rid of them. So a facial once a month would help you maintain healthy and glowing skin.


It's a good idea to mark a day off during the week to get a home facial. Follow these simple instructions for an exhilarating home facial:

. Place a head band or scarf just above the forehead along the hairline and tie it at the nape of your neck. This is to protect the hair.
. Start by cleansing the skin thoroughly. Choose a cleanser according to skin type. Apply on face and wipe off with damp cotton wool.
. While the face is still damp, apply a facial scrub for deep pore cleansing. If suffering from pimples or eruptions avoid using a scrub.
. If you have a normal to dry skin, apply a nourishing cream, wet your hands with water and massage the cream into the skin using outwards and upwards strokes.
. Wipe skin with damp cotton wool or a clean, moist face towel.
. Avoid applying cream if skin is oily but nourish neck area.
. Apply a face mask leaving out area around the eyes.
. Soak two cotton wool pads in rosewater and place these on eyes. Lie down, and relax as the mask dries off.
. After 20 to 30 minutes wash off face mask with water.
. Wrap an ice cube in a clean cloth and rub this on face.
. Do not apply ice directly on the skin, or keep it on one spot for long.
