    Do Your Own Facial

    Facials are an important part of skincare, especially in winters, when skin tends to get dry. However, with todayís hectic schedules and fast paced lives, we hardly get time to head to the salon to get a facial massage done. As a result, our skin is neglected and left feeling dry and stretchy throughout winters.
    For those of us who are pressed for time, there is a much simpler solution Ė to simply do your own facial.

    You donít need fancy creams and lotions of any sort, you can use good old home remedies to revive your lifeless skin. Natural remedies work better than any cosmetic brand and are so much easier on the pocket as well!

    Massage Movements
    Before you set out to raid your fridge, it is important to learn the massage movements for a facial.
    Hereís what you need to do:

    • Start at the base of the neck, massaging up towards the chin with your fingers.
    • Use your thumb and forefinger to massage your chin, moving outward towards the ears.
    • Move on to the cheeks, moving your hands in circular motion, clockwise and anticlockwise.
    • Massage under the eyes with your index and middle fingers, moving them outward from your nose.
    • Gently pat your eyes and eyebrows with your fingertips.
    • Hold the nose from both sides and move fingers up and down
    • For the forehead, bring your fingers together between your eyebrows and massage outward, massaging the temples each time.
    • Repeat these steps for 15 to 20 minutes.


    Do the Facial
    A facial is a four step procedure; cleansing, exfoliating, massaging and hydrate. You will need cleansing milk, a face scrub, cream and a masque to finish off.

    Here are some homemade solutions for the same:

    Step 1: Cleansing
    You can either use cleansing milk available in the market or make your own.
    Take two tablespoons of full fat milk and add half a teaspoon of olive oil. Warm the mixture, and dip a cotton ball in it to wipe your face thoroughly. Wash off with lukewarm water.

    Step 2: Exfoliating

    Scrubbing is needed to slough off dead skin cells from your face. You can make a scrub using two teaspoons of curd, one teaspoon of gram flour and a pinch of turmeric.
    Alternately, you can finely crush two to three almonds and mix with milk cream.
    For oily skin, you can make a scrub using oatmeal and honey. Follow the massage instructions listed above.

    Step 3: Massaging

    There are several face massage creams available, but nothing beats a homemade alternative. For a face massage, you can use the pulp of papaya added to some milk cream. Thicken the mixture to form a paste that you can spread easily.

    For oily skin, you can use a paste of hung curd and the pulp of apricot with a few drop of olive oil.

    Step 4: Hydrating

    A masque is the most effective way to hydrate your skin after a facial massage. Once youíve finished massaging your face, put a hot towel on your face to open clogged pores. Finish off with a homemade face pack.

    You can try a clay masque made of Fullerís Earth and rose water.
    For a more nourishing pack, try mixing the yolk of one egg with one tablespoon honey and a few drops of olive oil.

    If youíre feeling particularly indulgent, try a chocolate pack. Melt a few pieces of dark chocolate over a double boiler. Add to this a mix of one cup of milk and two tablespoons of salt. Stir together and let it cool. Apply and keep for 10 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water.

    Next time you want to look glam but donít have time on your side, just sit back and pamper yourself at home. These simple, yet effective, facial tips will leave your skin with a warm glow all through the winter months.
