5 EASY STEPS FOR FACIAL CLEAN UP AT HOME DURING WINTERS

Taking care of our skin is very important and we have been hearing this line since ever. And you must be wondering what different are we going to cover up through this blog post today.

Our skin behaves differently in different seasons and taking care of it accordingly is important. In winters our skin becomes dull, dry, rough and tanned. So, clean up during the winters is also very important and you can do this at home in very easy steps. Let us see how to do facial clean up at home with your regular products. Make sure you do it step by step.

1. CLEANING IS MUST

The first step for facial clean up at home is to wash your face with clean and normal water. Avoid warm water because normal water helps in maintaining a good temperature of your skin. After washing with cold water just wipe your face with rose water nicely. This removes the impurities and helps in skin glow. You can also use ice cubes on your face during this process.

2. CLEANSE IT BABY

You must wash your face with your regular face wash so that all tough other dirt particles are removed. You can cleanse your face then with either a milk cleanser or cold unboiled milk directly. Both would work the same way. This also retains the moisture back on your skin. Unboiled milk works like wonders during the winters.

3. SCRUB IT OFF

Scrubbing makes your face free from all the impurities. The black heads, white heads, dull skin, dead skin, and tan tends to remove through scrubbing. Stick to whatever scrub that you are using already. Make sure it suits your skin type. Damp your face and scrub it. Massage for at least 15 minutes and this also improves the blood circulation on your face and cheeks.

3. STEAM UP

Allow your face in the process of steam. Steam helps your face to open the pores and in this way, all the dirt particles of your face will remove and the pores will open and your skin will be more lively. This also gives a chance to your skin to breathe. So you can always do this step once in 15 days. During winters, this is the best thing you can do to your skin.

4. DONT LACK THE PACK

A face pack is very important for the process of facial clean up at home. It moisturisez your skin and helps in glowing as well. It also depends on the type of face pack that you are using. The ultimate goal for what you are using that particular face pack should be fulfilled. Apply it for 15 minutes and rinse it well.

5. MOISTURISE AND PAMPER

During the winters, avoiding the moisturization is a big deal. In fact we have to moisturize the skin daily in this season. So, the best way to moisturize is using a face cream or a moisturizer. You can also use aloe vera gel and this is one of the best things to nourish your skin. After this, just let your skin breathe.

These were some of the easiest steps to do face clean up at home during the winters. The steps are somehow similar to what we do in other seasons but the catch here is to use the correct products according to the season.
