After cleansing the face, the next step is scrubbing. This scrubbing works to remove dead skin cells so that your skin can be regenerated properly. You can use natural scrubbing ingredients from a mixture of sugar, rose water, and olive oil.
When all the ingredients are mixed together, apply it evenly to the face. Then, rub the whole face using a scrub with a circular motion. The forehead, nose and chin should be rubbed longer because the section grows most blackheads. Then, rinse face clean with warm water.
If your skin is acne, should avoid scrubbing because it can make the skin more irritated.
The next facial facial step is steaming or evaporation. The way is easy enough. Prepare a bowl or a large basin containing hot water. Then, hold your face over the basin for about two minutes while covering the head with a towel so that the steam is exposed only in the face only.
This steaming function is to open the pores and remove dirt like blackheads on the face.
