This article will provide you the step-by-step process of doing a facial at home with natural ingredients. But before that, let’s start with what is facial and its benefits.
What is the Facial and Benefits of Getting it?
A facial is a skincare treatment that involves cleansing, exfoliating, steam, lotions, and so on, followed by a massage. It helps to provide many benefits such as
- Deep Cleanse: Since we use scrubs in facial, it helps cleanse the face and remove most impurities such as blackheads, toxins, and bacteria.

How to Do Facial at Home—Step by Step Tutorial with Natural Ingredients
Facial at home is the same as facial in parlors. You have to follow the step-by-step procedure to do a facial at home. Let’s get started.
Step 1: Tie your hair
Before starting a facial, you should tie your hair into a bun or ponytail and if you have short hair, use a hairband. It is essential so that your hair doesn’t make contact with your skin while doing facial.
Step 2: Remove all Makeup
The very first step is to remove all the makeup from the face. You can use makeup remover, or you can use plain milk. Plain milk can remove all the makeup, but if you don’t want to use simple milk, go for unrefined coconut oil.
Dip cotton into the oil or milk and squeeze the excess oil or milk; remove all the makeup with the cotton.
Step 3: Cleanse your Face
The next step is to cleanse your face. Cleansing is essential to remove impurities from your skin. Wash your face with lukewarm water and use a face cleanser. You can either choose a mild face cleanser from the market or go DIY.
To make a DIY face cleanser, you can mix honey, liquid Castile soap, and few drops of any essential oil.
Step 4: Steam
The next step is to steam your face with neem. Neem has antibacterial properties that help open up pores and make it easy for you to remove blackheads. To take face steam, bring water and neem leaves and boil them at high flames.
Now take steam as you take when you have a cold. We suggest you steam till the water loses its heat.
Step 5: Scrub
The next step is scrubbing your face with face scrubs gently. We suggest you either mix a tbsp. Of rice flour with orange juice, or mix coconut oil with brown sugar until sugar dissolves. It helps to remove all the blackheads and whiteheads effectively.
Massage the scrub all your face but concentrate in the areas with most blackheads and whiteheads, i.e., around the nose. Also, massage very gently for 2 to 3 minutes, and after scrubbing, wash your face and wipe with a soft towel gently.
Step 6: Massage your Face
After using the scrub, the most crucial step is to massage your face very gently upwardly. To massage your face, you can use aloe vera homemade cream. You can mix aloe vera gel with rosewater or with egg white to make aloe vera cream.
Before massaging, dip your hands in cold water; it helps close the pores and massage your neck as well. We suggest you massage for at least 5 to 8 minutes.
Step 7: Apply a Face Mask
After doing a massage, wash your face and let it dry. It’s time to apply a face mask that you can easily make with natural ingredients.
To make a face mask, mix 1 tbsp. Of Multani mitti and ½ tbsp. Of turmeric powder. If you have oily skin, then add rose water and if your skin has a combination of dry and oily texture, then add rice water.
Alternatively, Mix 3 tbsp. Of honey and some milk into a bowl. Then add 1 tbsp. Of white sugar, you can also add rose water.
We suggest you apply a face mask and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Then wash it off and wipe your face with a clean and soft towel.
