This is an important and the first step in a facial because this will help to remove any dirt, impurities, or dust settled on your skin. Use a good hydrating cleanser and wash your face with it. If you have applied any kind of make-up, a good cleanser will also remove any leftover make-up residue from your face.

Also, since you are focusing on oily skin, choose a cleanser meant for oily skin as it will help to remove excess oil from your skin. To go all natural, you can mix two tablespoons of honey with some yoghurt and clean your face with it.



Once you have cleaned your face, give it a good steam. Facial steam, as you might know, is an ancient trick used effectively from removing any kind of dirt or impurities from your skin. It helps to open up the pores on your face and clean them. Steaming is an essential part of facial as it opens up the pores on your face and allows your face pack and its ingredients to penetrate deep into your skin, thus providing it the much-needed nutrition.

Allow your skin to get a good steam for about 8-10 minutes. Close your eyes and relax while you give yourself a good facial steam. Once your face is ready for the mask, move on to the next step.


Face Mask

This is a crucial step. Since we are dealing exclusively with oily skin, you need to go for a clarifying face mask that will soak excess oil from your skin. For that, you will need the following ingredients.


2 tablespoons of fuller's earth (multani mitti)

2 tablespoons of tomato puree

1 tablespoon of yoghurt

A few drops of lemon juice

Water if required

How to do

In a bowl, combine multani mitti and tomato puree and blend well.

Next, add yoghurt to it and mix well until it forms a consistent paste.

Lastly, add a few drops of lemon juice and stir well. If required, add some water to make the mixture into a semi-thick consistent paste. Remember that the paste should not be too thick or too watery.

Use a brush to apply the pack on your face and neck. Avoid your eyes, ears, and mouth while applying the pack.

Leave it on for about 20 minutes before you wash it off with cold water as it will close your pores that had opened up while steaming your face.



Once you are done with the face mask, apply a good toner on your face as well as your neck. One thing you must remember is that while applying a toner, give your face a nice, soothing massage for a good 2-3 minutes. It will help to tighten your skin and will give you a glowing, younger-looking skin.
