Step by Step Facial at Home – Best Home Remedies for all Skin Types
Every girl makes a schedule to visit the parlour at least twice a month. We all wait for that day, get anxious and become very happy when we visit the parlour, because we all are happy thinking about the glow on our skin/face to flaunt, as we come out of the parlour. But we hardly think about the fact that the glow we get on our faces, in parlors, is not going to last for more than 5-6 days, along with the use of harmful chemicals on our skin in abundance. Also, as a matter of fact, we can not visit a parlour every other week to keep the glow on our skin. So, we all want to find out the ways to do facial at home.
In today’s world there are a number of factors which are affecting our skin in most dangerous ways. These factors may include high pollution level, hormonal imbalance, stress, negligence at times, unhealthy diet & lifestyle and frequent usage of high chemical cosmetic products. The ill effects may result in wrinkles, rashes, acne, blackheads and dangerous diseases ranging from infections to skin cancers at times. A quick visit to a parlour may help you get rid of some of these problems in short term, but exposing our skin to harmful chemicals may result long term ill effects.
