How I did facial at home

The lady who does my facials had told me once that a woman who is conscious about her looks, should do facial once a month at the salon and once a week at home! When I asked her that if a woman can do facial at her home once a week, then why visiting the parlor? " A professional facial cannot be substituted for home facials and the former includes extractions which cannot be done at home. "

Inspired and excited, I decided to try to do home facial when I had a party to attend and my beauty consultant was not in town. Since I always like trying to do some homemade remedies for beauty improvement, I thought why not to try doing facial at home. If it went well, then I could pamper my skin more often without hitting my budget. In case if failed, then I had my parlor to fix it. I saw many videos, read many articles and here is what I extracted. I am also copying the some links which I think are useful.

What I learned that facial basically consists of:-

Cleansing- I did something new here, I washed my face with lukewarm water and applied raw milk on my face. Washed after 2 minutes and applied avocado! After 5 minutes washed my face again massaging softly!

Scrubbing- I wanted to use the scrub which I bought from CVS the other day but I went and followed the natural way of scrubbing. Sugar and lemon! It really helps. After I completed scrubbing I came through this wonderful homemade scrubs and repented on not doing enough research! Very soon i will be writing an article on home-made scrubs.

Massage- I really can't give any advice on how to do it as I simply followed the video in you tube blindly! I used Nivea for doing it. This cream does wonders for my skin. It also gave me an idea on what my next article will be about natural home-made massage creams.

Face pack- I applied chocolate powder, yogurt and lemon face pack. This pack always helps in glowing my skin. Check out this article if you want to find out how to get glowing skin by packs which are homemade and

After I washed the pack, my face did look clean and soft. Though I did not take out the white heads as I think that some jobs are better done by the professionals! A happy expression from a surprised husband whose face just brightened by looking at my fresh face when he came back from office just gave me the green signal to try it again next month and I still go to the parlor because I think I too need some pampering. However when I tried to pluck my eyebrows using tweezers at home, I failed miserably. I had to take the help of eyebrow pencils to hide the mistakes and vowed never to do it again.

      I do home facial all the time. My Mum used to be a beautician, so, I know all the tricks. Its just nice when you get to relax and let someone do the work. If you like to do mask, use fruits/vege e.g. tomatoes, papaya, banana, etc. Put on everyday for 15 mins and rotate fruits. You can see difference that no outside professionals can do. Regular mask cleans the skin and your pores will not be blocked. If that happens, the blacks and whiteheads will not even appear!
