Any fruit facial is good for your skin if you do it at least once a month. It helps in treating most of your skin issues, such as fading away dark spot, blemishes, skin tan, etc. Facial is important as it helps in blood circulation that in turn relaxes the facial muscles.
Today, we'll be discussing how to do a DIY watermelon facial at home. Watermelon has about 90% of water that helps in retaining the natural moisture of the skin. Being a rich source of antioxidants, watermelon helps in rejuvenating the skin and thus slowing down the process of ageing.
Now let us see how we can do a simple facial at home using watermelon as the main ingredient. Read on.
Step 1: Cleansing
Cleansing is the first step involved in a facial. Here we'll be using watermelon juice and coconut oil to deeply cleanse the skin. In a bowl, mix together 2 tbsp of watermelon juice and 1 tbsp of coconut oil. Take a cotton pad and dip it into the mixture and rub it all over your face. Later wipe it off with a wet towel and now your skin is ready for the next step.
Step 2: Steaming
Steaming is a very important step in the process of facial. It helps in opening up the pores and takes away the impurities and dirt from the skin that can later cause acne and breakouts. Also, it softens up the skin. You can either steam using a steamer or simply take the steam from some boiled water for about 2-5 minutes.
Step 3: Scrub
The next step in the process of facial is scrubbing, that is, exfoliation. Now exfoliation helps in removing the dead skin cells from the skin that paves the way for a healthy and bright skin. For this, we'll be preparing a watermelon-based scrub.
All you need for this is 2 tbsp watermelon juice, ½ tsp rice powder and ½ tsp baking soda. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Apply this scrub on your face and gently scrub it in a circular motion with the help of your fingertips. You can continue this for 3-5 minutes. Later you can wash your face with normal water. Scrubbing will also help in getting rid of whiteheads and blackheads if any.
Step 4: Massage
After scrubbing, now it is time to massage the face. Massaging will help you in improving the blood circulation. For this, in a clean bowl take 2 tbsp watermelon juice, 1 tbsp honey, 1 tbsp lemon juice and 3-4 drops of almond oil. Mix all the ingredients well. Apply this on your face and gently massage with the help of your fingertips. Do it for about 5-6 minutes.
Step 5: Face Mask
Now we are at the final step of our DIY watermelon facial. First, mash the watermelon and take 2 tbsp of mashed watermelon in a bowl. Add 1 tbsp besan and 1 tbsp cold milk into it. Blend all the ingredients well. Apply this mask on your face and then wait for 20 minutes for it to dry. After 20 minutes you can wash it off with cold water.
