Easy to use Face packs for glowing skin
When we talk about face packs that funny and scary face comes into our mind, with face pack applied all over face and leaving eyes and lips open. But in fact they are quite effective. Face packs remove the dirt and oil deposited in the upper layer of our skin and shows off its natural beauty. It also helps in prevention of pimples and marks.
There are many types of face packs which we can easily make at home on our own. There are different face packs for different types of skin. Some have oily skin, some have, dry skin, some want to get rid of pimples, some want to be fairer. There is a solution for everyone in nature. So let’s see what you can do for your face.
For oily skin- You can try these face packs by mixing the following ingredients.
1- One tbsp of Fuller’s Earth (multani mitti) and one tbsp of lemon juice.
2- 3 tsp of ripe papaya paste and 1 tsp lemon juice
3- 3 tsp tomato pulp and 1 tsp orange juice.
For dry skin-
1-Beat a spoonful of butter in water and apply.
2- Massage olive oil all over your face and wipe off with cotton ball.
Make a face pack by mixing 3 tsp of ripe papaya paste, ½ tsp of cinnamon powder, 1 tsp of basil or neem or mint powder. Use it daily if severe pimple. If you find fresh leaves make a loose paste by mixing all ingredients.
For fairness- For fairness these two face packs are most effective.
1- Take 1 tbsp of orange juice and one tbsp of yoghurt and mix well to make a loose paste. Yoghurt has got whitening agent and removes dead skin and orange is a natural toner which will close open pores and tighten the skin.
2- Mix 1 tsp of honey, 1 tsp of glycerine, 2 tsp of lemon juice. This will bleach your skin naturally and make you fairer.
My all-time favourite face pack- I mix 1 tbsp of gram flour (besan), 1 pinch of turmeric powder, 1 tsp of lemon juice, ½ tbsp milk. This face pack balances the oiliness and roughness of the skin. Good for combination skin type.
General rule for applying face pack- Apply all over your face and neck and leave for 10 to 15 minutes then wash off with cold water. Use face pack at least twice a week for best results.
