Steps Of Facial

1. Cleansing

Cleansing is the first step in facial. First remove all the traces of makeup using cleansers that suits the skin, according to its type like cleanser would be different for a dry skin than for an oily skin. Use raw milk to cleanse the face. Then dip cotton in the milk and wipe the face to remove all the dirt from the face. Now perform upward circular movements. In the end, rinse the face systematically with lots of water.


If one is using some bought out products, please make sure to use a milky or creamy cleanser for dry skin and an oil free cleanser for oily skin.

2. Exfoliating

Exfoliation is the second step in facial. In normal terms, it is also known as scrubbing. It helps to remove dry skin cells from the surface. One can use any natural homemade scrub. First apply the scrub to moist skin and massage primarily focusing on the forehead, nose and chin. Please do not scrub the skin around the eyes as they are very sensitive and soft.

It helps to improve skin textures and remove dead cells. It also helps to reduce big pores. Periodical scrubbing reduces wrinkles  and fine lines and keeps the skin younger and much softer.

3. Steaming

Steaming is the third step in facial. It opens the pores and helps to release impurities and toxins that built up on the skin. Get the water boiling in a big vessel. Now with a towel forming a kind of tent over the head, lean the face over the vessel and get the steam. One should always be remindful of not to go too close the vessel as it may scald the skin. One can also add a tablespoon of rose petals /lavender/ rosemary to the water. Take the steam for maximum of 10 to 15 minutes, leaving a space in between. In the end, splash cool water on the face.

4. Facial Mask

Now it is turn to apply the facial mask. One should choose the pack according to the skin type. For example, for oily skin – use of clay mask would be helpful as it helps to absorb the oil. For dry skin – use of hydrating mask or creamy mask would do the trick and for sensitive skin – use a light gel. A skin with different combinations requires more than one mask to treat different areas of the face. Use of cotton soaked in rose water or cucumber slices would be good for placing the same on eyes. Now relax for at least 15-20 minutes. In the end, wash the face with lots of water.

5. Moisturizing

The last and final step in facial is to moisturize the skin. Different skin types require different moisturizers and therefore one should choose the moisturizer that best suited his or her skin type. For example, for oily skin – a light moisturizer or water based product would be great. For dry skin – use a oil-based moisturizer would be preferable. For sensitive skin, one should always to careful to avoid moisturizers containing acids or fragrances.
