How To Do Coconut Milk Facial At Home?
Step 1: Cleanse Face
It is important to first cleanse your face and remove any dirt, excess oil, or impurities accumulated on your face. To prepare a cleanser, you need some coconut milk and curd. Mix the two ingredients in equal quantities in a bowl. Start massaging your face with this cleanser gently. Make sure you cleanse your neck as well. Wash your face with normal water or use a cotton pad to wipe off your face.
Step 2: Exfoliate
Exfoliating your skin is important to get rid of all that dead skin on your face. For this, you need exfoliating ingredients like oats. In a bowl, add some oats and coconut milk. Mix well to make a scrub. Gently massage your face with this scrub. Make sure you don't be too harsh on your skin. This scrub will help you clear the dead skin and also work on your whiteheads and blackheads. Wash with normal water.
Step 3: Massage
After exfoliating your skin, you need to nourish it with good massage cream. You can make one at home using coconut milk, some rice flour or cornstarch, and a vitamin E capsule. In a bowl, add 1 tbsp of coconut milk, break 1 vitamin E capsule and use 1/2 tsp of cornstarch. You can add up the quantity as per the requirement. Massage your skin gently with this cream for a few minutes. Be very gentle. Wash off with normal water.
Step 4: Apply Face Pack
Lastly, apply a face pack prepared using coconut milk and turmeric or haldi. Turmeric or haldi is known for its amazing healing properties. This face pack will help lighten your skin and give you that instant glow.
In a bowl, add 2-3 tbsp of coconut milk and 1/2 tsp of turmeric powder. Mix well. Also, add some rice flour and mix again. Apply this face pack all over your face and neck.
