It is very easy to have nice glowing skin at home without going to parlour.Facial is crucial factor for having young glowing skin; it rejuvenates our skin and keeps it tight. You can surely have great skin at home if you follow these 5 simple steps.


  1. Cleansing:

Cleansing is the first step towards having a nice clean facial. For that you have to remove all makeup traces by applying suitable cleanser according to your skin type. If you have oily skin buy such products that are oil free and if you have dry skin go for milk based cleansers.


  1. Exfoliating:

The second step is to exfoliate. Exfoliation helps to remove dry skin cells on the surface. Use any natural homemade exfoliating scrub. Apply scrub to damp skin and massage gently focusing on forehead, chin and nose. Avoid skin around the eyes as they are very soft and sensitive. Exfoliation helps to remove dead cells and improve skin textures. It also helps to reduce large pores.


  1. Steaming:

The third step is facial steaming. Steaming opens the pores and helps to release toxins and impurities built up on the skin. Bring water to boil in a big vessel. Remove from heat. With a towel forming a tent over your head, lower/lean your face over the vessel and capture the steam. Take care not to go too close as it might scald your skin.  Steam for 10-15 minutes leaving a gap in between. Finish off by splashing cool water on your face.


  1. Facial Mask:

The next step is to apply Facial Mask. Choose mask/packs according to your skin type. For oily skin, use mud/clay mask as it helps to absorb excess oil. For dry skin, use hydrating mask or creamy mask and for sensitive skin use a light gel mask. Combination skin needs more than one mask to spot treat different areas. Place cotton soaked in rosewater or place cucumber slices on each eye and relax for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, wash with plenty of water.



The last step is moisturizing the skin. All skin types need moisturizing. Choose moisturizer suited for your skin type. For oily skin choose a light moisturizer or water based product. For dry skin use a heavier, oil-based moisturizer. For sensitive skin, avoid moisturizer containing fragrances or acids. Moisturizer helps to protect your skin and maintain the texture.
