Home Facial

Are you an office-goer?OR  Do you want to cut down on spending?OR  You have no time for visiting beauty salons/parlours?OR  Aren't you satisfied by the services offered by your beautician?

If your answer is "YES" to all, then you have hit the right place 'HEALTH N BEAUTY'. I am a office- goer too and want to avoid spending long hours at the parlour  waiting for my turn to come. WHY? ...Simply because my job does not permit me to do so :(
Therefore I have come up with a solution which will yield me good results as well as save on time n money as well.

I have decided today's topic will be Home Facial
Facial is an easy process , if correct procedure is followed. Else it could lead to negative results.
So here we go...
Number of facials: 1
Duration : 1 hour
Things we need :
a. Branded Facial Kit (I would prefer VLCC, Shahnaz Hussain or Biotique)
b. Steamer for face steaming
c. blackhead remover tool
d. Cleanser
e. Cotton/Sponge
f. Ice Cubes
g. Cold water

A facial kit normally includes a scrub, gel, face massage cream, face pack and a face lotion.
Step 1)CLEANSING
Take appropriate amount of cleanser and apply with fingertips to your face, neck and ears. Follow anti-clockwise circular movements. Massage for 2 minutes.

Dampen the sponge/cotton and wipe off the cleanser in upward direction. At this point all the dirt  settled on our face has been partially removed

Step 2)EXFOLIATING
To remove deep-seated dirt and dry skin cells, you need to  scrub your face. Apply the scrub all over the face provided in the facial kit . With wet fingertips massage it gently starting from your neck  and ending on your forehead. Follow anti-clockwise circular movements. Massage for 4-5 minutes.

Dampen the sponge/cotton and wipe off the scrub in upward direction.

Step 3)Steam
Follow instructions as given on the steamer. Place the steamer in front of you. Lean over and cover your head with a towel so that the steam will directly reach your face. Before that cover your eyes with damp cotton balls. 

Eyes being delicate should be kept away from the steam.  Maintain proper distance between your face and the steamer, so that you do not burn your face. Take steam for around 4-5 minutes.

Put off the steamer and wipe you face with the sponge. Hot steam will open up your pores. If you have problems with blackheads and whiteheads, you can try removing them with the blackhead remover tool and a cotton ball. Never squeeze pimples/blackheads with your fingers , which may leave ugly scars.

Step 4) Cooling
Rub an ice cube over your face and neck for a minute. Apply the gel(cucumber) provided. Massage it for 6-7 minutes till it is absorbed into the skin .

Step 4) Face Massage
Apply the massage cream provided with the kit. Massage for about 20 minutes or as mentioned. Massage  with wet fingertips for better results.

Step 5)Face Pack
Place a facial mask all over your face. Just follow the instructions on the back of the product that you are using.Cover your eyes with damp cotton balls and lie in a resting position. Keep this pack for 15-20 minutes till it dries.

Dampen the sponge/cotton and wipe off the facial mask . Rub an ice cube over your face and neck for a minute. Dry your skin with a soft towel.

Step 6) Toning
In order to refresh your skin and get rid of excess oil, apply the toner or the face lotion provided. Special attention should be given  to your nose, forehead and chin. If you have extremely dry skin, you can skip this step.

Step 7) Moisturize
After the cleansing, rinsing, steaming and toning, your face is now ready to get moisturized. You can apply moisturiser after the facial or before going to bed.


You'll have a glowing and clean  skin . You can achieve better results after  2-3 days of facial. Hence if you are gearing up for an occasion , carry out the facial process 2-3 days before the occasion.

Steaming is an optional process. You can skip it depending on your skin type.
I have an oily skin and VLCC Fruit Facial proved better than the others which I tried.


That's it!!!!! isn't it easy? Do not waste your time and get ready for a home facial. Before that please don't  forget to leave a comment!!!
