This post is all about a DIY facial regime that will give you a smooth and glowing skin. The ingredients required for this tutorial can be found easily at home. It is an“organic facial” that suits all skin types. So, without wasting any more time, let’s get into it.
Step 1: Scrub
The first step is to scrub your face. Take half a lemon, dip it in some granulated brown sugar and pour some honey over the lemon. Use this lemon to gently scrub your face. As you do that, Squeeze the lemon gently. If required, Dip again in granulated brown sugar. Don’t panic if you get some over your lips. Leave this on for 5-7 minutes and then wash it off.
Step 2 : Blackhead/Whitehead Removal
Next step is to remove blackheads or whiteheads.Take a toothbrush. Next, take a small bowl, squeeze some toothpaste and add a small teaspoon of soda bicarbonate (meetha soda). Mix it well. Then, using the toothbrush, apply this paste to your nose in circular motions. Be very gentle while doing so.Leave it for about 7-8 minutes and rinse off thoroughly. This will fix your blackheads or whiteheads completely and your nose will be smooth and shiny.
Step 3 : Face Pack
Now comes the time for face pack. This face pack is suitable for acne prone skin too. Start off by taking about a spoonful of ground nutmeg, a spoonful of milk or water and half a spoon of honey. Combine all these ingredients very well. Add water or milk to smoothen the consistency. Apply this face pack with the help of a brush and leave it on for about 15-20 minutes. Milk will moisturize and nourish your skin because it has healthy fatty acids. Honey is well known for its anti-inflammable and antibacterial properties. So it is equally good for your skin. Nutmeg also calms the skin and works well as an antioxidant.
Step 4: Toning
The final step is toning.In a small bottle, add equal parts of apple cider vinegar and water. Shake the bottle well to mix both the ingredients. Your DIY toner is ready. Apply this to your face using a small cotton ball. Don’t worry about its smell. It is chemical-free and hence is a lot better than other toners that contain harmful chemicals and alcohol.
Last but not the least, go ahead and moisturize your skin well. You’ll definitely feel a difference in your skin after you try this out. It will make your skin all clean, smooth and glowy.And the best part of this facial is that all the products used in this are easily accessible and cheap.
