Translation of a narration in Sahih Bukhari

Question

I see this Hadith often but I don’t see the word “face” in the Arabic:

 قَالَ ابْنُ شِهَابٍ عَنْ عُرْوَةَ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ ـ رضى الله عنها ـ قَالَتْ يَرْحَمُ اللَّهُ نِسَاءَ الْمُهَاجِرَاتِ الأُوَلَ، لَمَّا أَنْزَلَ اللَّه ‏{‏وَلْيَضْرِبْنَ بِخُمُرِهِنَّ عَلَى جُيُوبِهِنَّ‏}‏ شَقَّقْنَ مُرُوطَهُنَّ فَاخْتَمَرْنَ بِها‏.‏

Sayyidatuna`Aaishah (radiyallahu ‘anha) said:

May Allah bestow His Mercy on the early emigrant women. When Allah revealed: “… and to draw their veils all over their Juyubihinna (i.e., their bodies, faces, necks and bosoms)…” they tore their Murat [woolen dresses or waist-binding clothes or aprons etc.] and covered their heads and faces with those torn Muruts.

My question is, I just see a verb from the root خمر

Why did the translator write that they covered their faces?
