For deep down cleansing and a definite improvement in skin-tone, try an at-home facial. Just once a month, will make a noticeable difference to your complexion. Follow these steps to re-create the benefits of the beauty salon in the comfort and privacy of your own home. 1. Smooth your skin with cleansing cream. Leave on for 1-2 minutes to give it time to dissolve grime, oils and stale makeup. Then gently smooth away with cotton wool. 2. Dampen your skin with warm water. Then, gently massage with a blob of facial scrub, avoiding the delicate eye area. This will loosen dead surface skin cells, and leave your skin softer and smoother. It will also prepare your complexion for the beneficial treatments to come. Rinse away with warm water. 3. Take steam for around 5 minutes, to allow the steam to warm and soften your skin. If you have any blackheads, you can try to gently remove them with tissue-covered fingers after this treatment. If you have sensitive skin, or are prone to broken veins, you should avoid this step. 4. Smooth on a face mask. Choose a clay-based one if you have oily skin or a moisturizing one if you have dry or normal skin. Leave on for 10 minutes, or for as long as specified by the instructions on the product. 5. Rinse away the face mask with warm water. Finish off with a few splashes of cool water to close your pores and freshen your skin, then pat dry with a towel. 6. Soak a cotton wool pad with a skin toner lotion, and smooth over oily areas, such as the nose, chin and forehead. 7. Dot your skin with moisturizer and smooth in. Take the opportunity to massage your skin, as this encourages a brighter complexion and can help reduce puffiness. 8. Smooth your under-eye areas with a soothing eye cream to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. and make the skin ultra-soft. Get some ideas on homemade face masks - For every type of skin.

STEP ONE: STEAM The first step is to steam your skin in order to clear the pores of your skin. When your day is done, use a facial steamer or just soak a washcloth with steaming water, wring lightly and bring the cloth close to your face. Steam your face for 1-1/2 minutes. Let the steam penetrate to fully open your pores.

STEP TWO: CLEANSE With your pores open, next splash warm water on your face and neck. Pour or work the appropriate amount of skin cleanser into your hands, then mix with some water to work it into a creamy lather. Massage this onto your wet face. Using your fingertips or a soft complexion brush, in a circular motion delicately massage your face for about 30 seconds, making sure to include your neck area. Then rinse with warm water and gently pat your skin dry with a soft towel. A tip: always try to use a cleanser specially formulated for cleansing your face rather than a generic kind of soap. And be careful to avoid the delicate skin around your eyes.

STEP THREE: TONE Dampen a piece of cotton with an alcohol-free toner and gently wipe your entire face and neck area. (Alcohol-based toners have a damaging and drying effect on the skin). This step lifts away any residue that you might have missed and also closes your pores, preparing your skin for its moisturizing treatment. Alcohol-free toners are far gentler on your skin, which is especially important during the winter months. At this point, your face should now be squeaky clean.

STEP FOUR: MOISTURIZE In an upward, circular motion, now apply a small amount of a moisturizer of your choice to your face and neck areas. Do not over apply, as too much can be worse for your skin. Only when your skin has been properly cleansed can your moisturizer work to condition, moisten and protect your complexion. Choose moisturizers, which have anti-aging ingredients and vitamins added to it. After this you may do any type of facial for a nice glow: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Mix 1 1/2 teaspoons honey, the juice from 1/2 of a lemon, and 3-tablespoon yoghurt. Stir in 1 whipped egg white. Apply to face and let set about 15 minutes. Then wash off with lukewarm water. Make a paste from a little oatmeal and water. Apply to face and let it dry. Then wash off with lukewarm water. Mash half of an avocado and apply to entire face. Let set for about 20 minutes and then wash off. Mash 1/2 banana and add 1-tablespoon honey and 2 tablespoons sour cream. Apply to face and let set for about 10 minutes. Then wash off with lukewarm water. Two tablespoons of cornmeal mixed with enough water to make a thick paste makes a great inexpensive facial mask. Gently apply to face and wash off. Soak 1 cup dried apricots in water until softened. Puree in blender or food processor with 2 tablespoons skim milk powder. Apply to face and let set about 15 minutes. Then wash off with lukewarm water. In a food processor or blender, combine 1/2 cucumber, 1-tablespoon yoghurt, a few strawberries, and 1-teaspoon honey. Apply to face and let it dry. Then wash off with lukewarm water. To loosen blackheads, combine equal parts baking soda and water in your hand and rub gently on your skin for 2 to 3 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

shalu, for facial first, secure ur hair away from the face,lieback,close ur eyesapply bleach on faceneck and back,(except eyes)You will need face cream, and a bowl of cold water. Remove your top so you can massage your neck as well, without getting cream all over your clothes.

Wash your hands and cleanse your face.

Sit back on a chair, and apply a generous amount of cream on your face and neck. Massage it gently into your skin.

Take some cold water from the bowl, and apply it to your face as well. You could start from the neck. Lift your chin up and massage your neck using upward strokes.

Then massage the area just under your skin. Use firm strokes. Start from the center, move your hands under your jaw, outwards to the ear. Do this around 20 times or more, depending on how much time you have, and then using small upward strokes, work the entire under-chin area from side to side.

Massage the rest of your face, using upward and outward strokes, and circular motions. Keep reapplying water and cream on your face.

Circle your eyes, pressing down on the temples.

Similarly, use upward and outward strokes on your forehead.

Make a V with two fingers of one hand and put it on your face. Using the index finger of the other hand, massage the skin inside the V area. Move this ?V? all around your face.

Use quick, sharp slapping strokes on your cheeks. ?Slap? yourself for at least 2-3 minutes.

Remember that your entire massage session should consist of upward and outward strokes. Never massage the skin on your face in a downward direction, because your constant endeavour is to fight gravity.

In addition to a face massage, make sure you exercise regularly and drink at least 10 to 12 glasses of water a day.

Some people may develop pimples after a massage. If you develop a few pimples, wait until the pimples go, and use another cream the next time.

Wash your face with cold water after a massage.steam for 5-10 min.gently dab it with a towel and apply a face mask. lie down with your eyes closed and place cucumber slice on each eyelid.this is soothing and refreshing andis great for dark circles.remove the mask and rinse ur face with luke warm water follow the toner and moisturiser.use bleach,message creame(facial creame),mask according to ur skin nature.i think this will help u...
