Getting a facial at a salon can be fancy and leave you with a glowing face, but it also leaves a hole in your pocket. Even if you are not really that bothered about the pockets and the holes like us peasant, every once in a while we all go through those “I don’t wanna go out of the house today” moments. Maybe you have chores to take care of, a baby to attend, or simply because of winters and it’s too cold outside to step out of the comfort of your home. Nevertheless, we all want that glow on our faces, all year long. Don’t we? So why not get salon like glow at home? How? By doing the same facials at home all by ourselves. This would save us a bunch of time and money.
There are many reliable cosmetics brands that have launched their facial kits in the market for home use. Whether you have dry skin, oily skin, combination skin, or oily skin, there is one for every skin type.
Here are 10 best facial kits in India for all skin types.
How To Use Facial Kits At Home?
Before you buy a facial kit, try to understand your skin type and get one that suits you well. If confused, you may take assistance from the beauty advisor at the store.
Read the instructions on the packaging to make sure you understand the process well.
If it’s your first time trying a brand, it’s always better to do a patch test on your neck or back of your ears.
Reach out to your dermatologist if you see a problem or itching, or talk to a skin care professional so that he can diagnose and treat the problem.
These facial kits are great add-ons to your daily facial regime. Using facial kits doesn’t imply you give up your daily skincare regimen. The results of using facial kits will be visible in a greater way if used every fortnightly.
If you see a brand working for you, stick to it for at least 6 months at a stretch.

Regardless of what facial kit you pick, a permanent glow will take at least five to six regular uses. If you are a first timer in this beauty ritual, we suggest for the first three months take one facial every 14 days. You will witness a natural glow on your face with a change in your skin tone. After 3 months, you may go for just one facial a month. For beginners again, we suggest start with a papaya or fruit facial, and keep the gold and diamond facials for special occasions. The best age to start facials is 23 to 25. But facials do not substitute a daily beauty routine. In fact, they will only give you a desirable result if you continue with the cleaning, toning, and moisturizing routine every day and exfoliate every 4 days.
