How long does the effect of facial last?
The effects of glowing skin due to boosted blood circulation typically last from 48-72 hours.
FACIALS AT HOME
Now that we have a pandemic in place, stepping out for a facial is probably not a safe decision. Even though you know if you are visiting a posh salon that takes all the highest measures of safety and hygiene, you never know where you might get infected. In such cases, facials at home are saviors.
So what do you require for facials usually?
- Massaging gel or cream
- Face pack
INDRANI ORANGE FACIAL KIT
Being a person with combination skin, predominantly oily I would say, I was on the lookout for a good facial kit that suits oily or combination skin. Since I wanted to opt for something that had citric acid (good for oily skin) I decided I should check those options which had citrus fruits.
I stumbled upon this orange facial kit online. Checked out the contents, pricing, reviews and decided to buy it.
What does it contain?
- Lemon cleansing milk
- Apricot scrub
- Orange massaging gel and orange nourishing cream with vitamin E
- Orange face pack
Steps to do facial at home
Cleansing with lemon cleansing milk
Cleansing being the first and foremost step to prepare your skin for the treatment, take 2-3 drops of cleansing milk and massage onto face in an upward circular motion for 2-3 minutes. Wipe off with cotton pads.
Exfoliation with Apricot scrub
Exfoliation is the next step, where you remove dead skin cells and unclog the pores. Take a small amount of scrub, massage onto your face in a circular motion for about 3-5 minutes. Wipe off with damp cotton pads. Do not scrub harshly. Gentle circular strokes would suffice.
Massaging with gel and cream
Take equal quantities of orange massaging cream and orange massaging gel and mix. With upward and circular strokes massage the mixture until it is absorbed into the skin. You could do this for 10 minutes.
Mix Indrani orange face pack with water or rose water and apply evenly onto face and leave on to dry for about 10-15 minutes. Wash off gently with water and pat dry.
Add two to three drops of astringent on to the cotton pad and dab it on the face to complete the facial and close the pores.
Skin feels fresh and renewed post-facial. Orange being a citric fruit is great for oily skin and vitamin C present is known to remove blemishes and give a glowing skin.
