Facial at home

We invest quite a large amount of money on facial at beauty parlour. But many of us are unaware of the fact that facial can be done even at home. The steps for home facial are as follows:
Step 1: Soak a soft towel into herbal tea liquor and press it onto the face, neck and shoulder. This should be done quite a number of times to open the facial pores.
Step 2: Apply cleanser onto the face in circular motion with a piece of wet cotton and then clean the face with a soft towel, soaked in lukewarm water.
Step 3: Apply toner all over the damp face, neck and shoulder with another piece of cotton. Avoid using toner around the eyes.
Step 4: Now massage and apply mask according to your skin type (whether oily, normal or dry).
Step 5: Finally apply moisturizer. It is always recommended to apply moisturizer on damp skin for maintaining humidity.

For oily skin, the best facial packs are as follows:
1. Brandy facial, which contains two crushed strawberries, two teaspoon of brandy, two teaspoon of powdered bread, two teaspoon of fuller earth and a drop of rosewater. It gives instant glow to your face.
2. Fruit Facial, containing, one cucumber, half teaspoon of lemon juice and egg white. This mask would soften your skin.

Some of the home made facial packs for dry skin are as follows:
1. Honey facial, which include, one tablespoon of honey, an egg yolk and one teaspoon of olive oil. It is highly effective as a natural home made moisturizer.
2. Revitalizing facial, having one smashed banana with one tablespoon of honey and orange juice as per requirement. It refreshes the skin and makes it glow.

The natural facial pack for normal skin is Aroma facial, which is a wonderful facial pack. It brings glow to the skin and makes the skin looks attractive. For the facial mask, mix half teaspoon of milk powder, two drops of lemon oil and one drop of cider wood oil. Mix fuller earth and rose water to make the toner and for the moisturizer, make a paste of non-perfumed moisturizing cream with lavender oil.

I prefer fruit facial for my oily skin. Although the ingredients are same as you mentioned in your posting, but I use a teaspoon of mint to it. It gives my skin a soothing effect.
