Facial Guide: How to do it at Home

The step by step instructions on ” how to do facial at home “.


The basic steps we would follow are:



Scrub (exfoliation)


Face pack

Step-1: Cleansing

You wil need:

Cotton pad



Wipe out your face thoroughly with the help of cleanser. If your cleanser is “cleansing milk” then take few drops on your finger tips apply in circular motion and wipe off.

If its in liquid form, dip the cotton balls in it and wipe off your face thoroughly.

Step-2: Massaging

Here comes the most difficult part of the facial. You will need:

Some good cream or a suitable oil(2-3 ml oil is more than enough for a dace massage, do not use too much oil please.)


There can be two options:

1.Massaging someone else’s face

2. massaging yourself.

In these cases posture of hands differ a lot, hence i decided to make a different topic for massage. Refer “how to massage a face” and “how to massage own face” respectively.

Step-3: Scrubbing

You will need:

A branded scrub or a homemade one

Some cotton pads


Take little amount of scrub, apply gently with finger tips.

DO NOT USE your palm, or any other part of hand, not even whole fingers just the TIPS.

Keep moving your fingers slowly and genlty in small circular motions. Do not apply pressure, do not hurry.

Enjoy for 4-5 mins. all slow and calm circular motions. wipe off with cotton pads.

Step-4: Steaming

You wil need:

Steamer (if you dont have a steamer at home you can use a pot, some hot water and a towel)

Cotton pads


Now after cleaning the face after scrubbing, lets move to steaming. If you have a steamer for face, read the instruction on its back about how to place your face on it and on how much distance etc.

If you are using pot, hot water and towel, take some water in a pot(vessel) heat it till it boils and steam formation takes place. Once its boiled, turn the gas off , take the pot and keep on a table or kitchen surface, be very careful.

Now position your head above the pot atleast 8-9 inches, 1 foot distance is safer. Place the towel on your head so as it covers your complete head and the area around you and the pot. Let the steam make you sweat. You would sweat in 2-3 minutes. 3-4 minutes steam is good enough. Wipe off your face with cotton pads.

Step-5: Face pack

You will need:

Ready made face pack/ home made face pack

Brush/applicator (you can also use your fingers for same purpose)

Buy some face pack according to your skin type, or the flavour which you want to enjoy during your facial or make one at home.

Apply the face pack on your face,using a brush or your fingers, take care of eyebrows, eyelids, under eye, and lips.

Let the face pack be on your face for the time mentioned specifically for that pack. Time duration varies for some packs. Otherwise normally you can keep a pack for 15-20 minutes.

Once the pack is done, remove it according to the method given with pack, like circular motion of fingers/ warm water wash/ cold water wash etc.

Dip a cotton in toner and wipe off your face.

If its a day apply some sunscreen after the facial, and you are done.
