In the name of Allah the most gracious the most merciful
The awrah (the parts which must be covered) of a woman to Mahram are from beneath of breast to the knee. That means it is not necessary for a woman to hide head, face, breast, calf and arm before a Mahram if there is no any sort of sexual desire (shahwat) in any side. [Raddul Muhtar-6/367] And the awrah in front of non-maharim is whole body including face a hadith reads: ˇ°Jarir b. 'Abdullah reported: I asked Allah's Messenger (saws) about the sudden glance (that is cast) on the face (of a non-Mahram). He commanded me that I should turn away my eyes.ˇ± [Sahih Muslim 2159]
But at the time of need, woman can open face and hands upto wrist before non-maharim if there is no fear of getting shahwah. [Raddul Muhtar-3/261]
And Allah knows the best
