Updated: May 8

DIY Summer Facial

There is something about the summer season that makes the skin irritable. This DIY summer facial will help your skin deal with harsh summer and keep it fresh and radiant.

It protects from UV rays and slows signs of ageing. Summers require special pampering for the skin along with proper hydration and skincare.

And for that, I have a very soothing, relaxing, and magical DIY summer facial for you.

You can even call it at-home DIY skin beautification as well!).

Step-By-Step Procedure For Your DIY Summer Facial:

STEP 1: Cleansing

Every DIY skincare remedy or any skincare process starts with this step.

Yes, cleansing your skin thoroughly and mindfully is the most crucial step of your skincare. If you do not clean your face nicely, topical applications will not work.

Clean your face with micellar water first if you have makeup on. It will remove the makeup and will not leave any residue. If not, go for your regular cleanser but cleanse mindfully.

If you feel that your skin is dry, apply any face oil before cleansing. Face oil contains essential and non-comedogenic botanical oils, which do not clog pores.

So apply any face oil of your liking on your face and neck. It will prepare your skin better for the next step, exfoliation. Use a cleanser of your choice to wash off the oil!

If you have oily skin, skip face oil and use a cleanser to clean your face.

STEP 2: Exfoliation

Remember, we are not scrubbing, but we are exfoliating. Exfoliation helps to remove dirt and dead skin cells. It also helps in unclogging the pores.

If you do not face blackheads or have a mild blackhead problem, go for gentle exfoliation. I suggest using DIY Face Wash for this purpose.

If you do not have a DIY face wash, prepare it or use gram flour (besan) to clean your face. Gram flour has exfoliating properties, which help in deep cleansing.


  • Gram flour


If you currently have blackheads or face severe blackhead outbreaks on the skin, I suggest taking steam before exfoliation.

Steam will open the pores, which will help in removing the blackheads efficiently while exfoliating. Use a DIY face wash or gram flour to exfoliate after taking steam.

Exfoliate with gentle hands, do not be harsh. Thoroughly exfoliate those areas of your face that have blackheads.

After exfoliating, splash water or wipe off your face. Now your skin is clean and ready for the next step.

STEP 3: Massaging Cream

After this step, you will notice a glow and brightness on your skin. Call it a massaging cream or a brightening serum.


  • Cucumber

  • Watermelon

  • Aloe vera

The reason behind this immediate glow is cucumber, watermelon, and aloe vera, which will make our massaging cream.

These superstar ingredients are rich in glutathione, which leads to natural skin brightening.


Steps for preparing the massaging cream:

STEP 1: Take 2-3 slices of cucumber and 2-3 pieces of watermelon (you can leave the seeds).

STEP 2: Take a blending jar and blend the ingredients well.

STEP 3: Strain the mix and extract the juice (do not throw the residue).

STEP 4: Transfer the juice from the jar to a bowl.

STEP 5: Add aloe vera gel to the mix. If you are using aloe vera from your garden, make sure that you blend it before pouring so that you get the desired consistency.

STEP 6: Mix all the ingredients nicely.

Your massaging cream is ready.


We will not apply this massaging cream directly to the face. So how are we going to do it?

For application, you need a capsule sheet face mask. These are readily available online, or you can ask your nearby pharmacy.

Dip the capsule sheet face mask in the massaging cream. It will start opening up. Are you wondering why we are doing this?

We want beautiful and magical nutrients to seep into the skin. By using this capsule sheet face mask, the magnificent ingredients of the massaging cream will go deeper into the skin and provide nourishment.

Put the sheet face mask on your face and leave it on for 10 mins.

After 10 minutes, remove the face mask and start massaging your face and neck. You will notice how smoothly your hands glide! Do not miss the area around the nose, mouth, and eyes.

You can massage it thoroughly and let it dry naturally, or if you do not have time, you can wipe or face. Gently dab while wiping.

Your skin will feel youthful and glowy.

STEP 4: Face Mask

Your pores will open after the last two steps, so now it's time to close them.


  • Sandalwood powder

  • Rose water

  • Multani Mitti


Take one tablespoon of sandalwood powder and add water or rose water to prepare the face mask.

If you are uncomfortable with sandalwood, use Multani mitti or gram flour. For the summer season, I suggest sandalwood powder because it is refreshing and has a calming effect.


You can dab the sandalwood face mask on your eyes for coolness. If you used multani mitti or gram flour but want an eye mask, I've got you covered!

Remember I asked you to save the residue of the cucumber-watermelon blend? You can use it as an eye mask.

Apply the mask and let it be till it is semi-dried. Splash water on your wash and TA-DA!

You are skin will thank you after this 4-step process of rejuvenation. Some people might witness redness after this process.

No need to worry!

Your face has just been exercised, so be patient. Make sure that you are not allergic to any ingredient used in this process. Take a patch test before beginning.


  • To moisturize the skin.

  • Apply sunscreen (if you did this process during the morning or day).

Take care of your skin and enjoy the best results!

Final Thought On DIY Summer Facial:

If you are doing this facial at night don't apply sunscreen. Just moisturize and go to sleep.

But if you are doing it during day time, apply sunscreen after moisturization.

Don't go in direct sunlight and let the glutathione you have given to your skin do some work.
