Beautiful skin doesn’t happen by chance, it happens by good home care.
Hello my lovelies, today I am gonna share my secret homemade facial routine, using all the ingredients easily available in your kitchen, which would definitely help you to nourish and rejuvenate your skin.
I’m blessed with a super sensitive skin(the pun intended) hence I have to be really cautious about choosing beauty products because they could irritate my skin therefore I prefer to make my own scrubs, cleansers and face packs and once in a month I pamper myself with a home facial using my trusted kitchen ingredients.
Let’s start by listing out the ingredients required
Aloe vera gel
ripened Banana /avocado
Prepare the essentials:
Mix 1 tsp olive oil with 3 tsp of plain water.
Mix 1 tsp of brown sugar, 1/2 tsp of lemon juice and 1 tsp of aloevera gel. Make a smooth paste.
Rejuvenating face mask
Mix 1/2 ripened banana (or 1/4 avocado ), 1 tsp yogurt, 1/2 aloe Vera gel, 1 tsp honey, 1 tsp of coconut oil(use a blender to make smooth paste)
Soothing clay pack
Mix 1 tablespoon Bentonite clay (this clay maintains the pores, controls overproduction of sebum, detoxifies the skin, gives glowing skin), 1 tablespoon of aloe Vera gel and make a nice paste my mixing water.( patch test on the arm is important before applying this clay on your face)
So ladies put on your robes , play some relaxing music and start this luxurious facial routine. I prefer to do my facial just before bed time because It help to give the skin time to rejuvenate and relax while you sleep.
Steps to achieve a bright and glowing skin:
Cleaning with olive oil
Dab a wet (water squeezed) cotton ball in homemade cleanser and clean your face including eye area and neck properly.
Remove the extra oil by dabbing a clean cloth in a warm water and wipe your face properly.
Scrub away the dead skin
Apply the scrub all over the face (leaving the eye area) and neck. Leave for 5 mins and dip your finger tips in the water and massage face and neck for 2 mins. Clean with cloth dabbled in warm water and pat dry.
Goodness of face mask
Apply the rejuvenating face pack thoroughly all over the face (including the eye area) and neck. Leave it for 30 mins and relax with cucumber slices properly placed on your eyes to give that extra coolness.
Clean the face with cloth soaked in warm water.
Purify with clay pack
Apply the clay pack all over the face (leaving the eye area, put the cooling cucumber slices on the eyes). Take a deep breath and keep the pack on for 20 mins.
For the final cleaning use cold water with ice cubes in it. Soak a clean cloth in this chilled water and clean your face thoroughly and the take out an ice cube and rub it gently all over your face and neck.
